One of the biggest challenge for crossdressers while wearing hair wigs is making sure it looks natural. You don’t need to buy the most expensive wig to create a realistic look. To make the hair wig look as natural as possible, you just need to know how to customize it properly.
Here are the best hair wig tips for making your wig look completely natural.
Tip no.1: Lace front and monofilament wigs
Without needing to spend a fortune, there are many different designs of lace front and monofilament wigs you can buy. To get a natural look, you don’t necessarily have to get the most expensive wig. While monofilament will give the appearance that hair is growing out of your scalp when it is parted, lace front wigs will offer you the most realistic appearing hair line. To reduce the shine, use hair powder. Don’t forget to condition the ends.
Tip no. 2: Wig Placement
Your wig’s placement will undoubtedly affect how real it appears; if you wear it too low on your forehead, it will be obvious; instead, pull it back just a little bit where your natural hair line starts. Make sure your wig is the appropriate size. Then it is advised to put on a mesh or nylon cap underneath. By doing this, you can better hide your natural hair and stop it from falling out under the wig. Now, if you don’t have any hair and are trying to determine where your hair line would be, all you have to do is hold one hand in front of your face and place the other hand on top where your fingertips meet; this will indicate exactly where your hairline is.
Tip no.3: Rooted colors hair wigs
Rooted colors make all the difference. Rooted colors in a wig add dimension and create the appearance that your hair is growing naturally from your scalp. If you have a preferred wig but its not available in a rooted color, it is advised to purchase a wig with combination of two colors because it will give you dimension and makes it look more real.
Tip no. 4: Friction and Heat
Here’s a tip to smooth down flyaways in wigs: rub your hands together to generate heat and friction. Place it on top as soon as it begins to warm up to help smooth down any extra fibers that may be sticking out. After that, smooth your hands over the surface.
Tip no. 5: The Front Pull Trick
Your real hair at the front should be pulled out. Making sure your placement is correct, put the wig on. The front hairs on your head can be left out and styled to match the texture of the wig to make it look more natural.
