Different Methods To Deal With Hairline
As we all know, if you are wearing a wig as a daily protective style, you want your wig to look as natural as possible. But most people don’t have a celebrity hairstylist on call to create a flawless fit. Whether you are copping a synthetic wig, investing in a human hair wig, or sewing a wig, there are some methods to deal with hairline making it as natural as possible.
Method One: Pluck The hairline
Want to know how to make a human hair wig look Make more natural and realistic? One of the best ways to make your hairline more natural is to pluck the hairs along the wig’s hairline. After all, the hair normally is thick and unnatural around the hairline. Plucking the hair can give you a more natural appearance.
Before plucking your hairline, you need to prepare a lace wig, a Styrofoam wig stand, pins, a handy pair of tweezers, and a scissor.
Step 1. Place the lace wig on a Styrofoam stand and use some pins on the lace to pin it down. You want to make sure it is very tight so that it doesn’t move in the process of plucking the lace front wig.
Step 2. Apply some foaming mousse to the hair and then part out a little bit of hair across the front edge or the perimeter hair.
Step 3. Start at your hairline near your ear and pluck hair away from your face, towards the back of your head. In this case, please make sure to use quality tweezers and be careful not to pluck too many hairs and lace. It would be better to pluck a little bit at first and see how it looks. And if you think that the hairline is still too dense, go back and repeat these steps. At the same time, space out plucking so that it is not too close together. For reference, please consider the distance between the teeth on a wide-tooth comb.
Step 4. Pluck hair so that there is no obvious line where the lace starts. There should be a gradient effect, so hair goes from less dense around the hairline to full coverage.
Step 5. Adjust your lace front wig accordingly and create natural edges. For example, separate a small section of the hair from the hairline that you want to style some baby hairs and then use a scissor to cut the hair down until the hair is at your desired baby hair length.

Method Two: Blend Your Natural Hairline With A Wig
Although the front wigs are great at mimicking a natural hairline, they will never beat the real hairline. If you are lucky enough to have some natural hair, please try to blend your natural hairline with the hairline of a lace front wig by applying some dry shampoo.
How to Blend Your Natural Hairline With a Lace Front Wig
Step 1: Place your wig an inch or two farther back on your head than you typically would, exposing your natural hairline.
Step 2: Fully put on the lace front wig.
Step 3: Spray a little dry shampoo into your hairline and along the parting line of the wig, and use your fingers to tease everything together. After all, a lot of wigs can be extremely shiny, which causes the hair to look unnatural. Therefore, using some dry shampoo is an amazing way to sop up some of that shine and make the hair strands look more real.
Method Three: Apply Concealer To Wig Parting Line
Many wig wearers often annoy that their wigs can not blend well with their natural hair. In this case, you can use concealer and makeup powder to your wig to make it more natural and realistic. Of course, the makeup powder must be close to your skin tone.
What you will need:
Step 1: Use powder or concealer you already have to lightly brush along the hairline and parting line.
Step 2: Apply a small amount of concealer to your concealer brush and then gently dab the concealer into the lace with a makeup brush or even your fingers until the entire part has concealer on it to get a more natural-looking hairline, which will blend the lace with the color of your skin to give a more natural look and hide the harsh edges.
Step 3: Turn the wig over to expose the inside lace. Using your powder brush to apply your makeup powder or powder foundation to the lace on the front of the wig. This should go all the way to where your parting line ends, as well as the place around it. Next, turn the wig back to one side of your hair and apply the concealer with the powder. It will naturally get on the hair but don’t worry about this, once you spray the hairspray, it dissolves. And don’t worry about the powder on the lace that will disappear.
Step 4: Repeat Step 2 once more. At this point, you should be satisfied with the color.
Step 5: Apply the inside of the lace part wig with the hair spray, then spray the hair spray directly on the part. The excess powder should be gone at this point.
