Nobody wants their wig to look like a wig. Plucking is an important step to take when wearing a human hair wig. The most popular pre-plucked lace front wigs have a thin, realistic hairline. Many women want them because of the natural appearance they provide. A plucked wig creates baby hair on the hairline to mimic a natural hairline. Do you know how to pluck a wig by yourself? Here is a very detailed step on how to pluck and customize the lace wig, which also can be used for lace frontal/ lace front, 360 lace frontal, etc. Please check out.
Firstly, let us learn what a pre-plucked wig is.
A pre-plucked wig means that your wig will have a natural hairline and the baby's hair has been plucked.
If the hair on the hair is not plucked, then the exact color of the wig can perfectly replace and imitate your hair-from the hair itself, the hairline, texture, color, and style. This is the standard everyone should follow.
When a wig is plucked, the density on the top is much lower, which is exactly the case with real hair. If you look at your strands, you will notice hairs of unequal length and some short baby hairs around your hairline. That is because new hairs grow constantly, and they can’t all be the same length.

First, you need to place the lace wig on a Styrofoam stand and pin the lace wig on the Styrofoam stand securely with some pins, which can make sure that your lace frontal wig doesn’t slide all over when you’re using tweezers to pluck your hairline.
Use a rat tail comb to smooth back your hairline to make sure there aren’t any knots or tangles. Then pull the hair back away from the hairline with your hand.
Take a good look at the wig hairline, you will notice that it is pretty dense and that’s what you want to avoid. Start plucking some hairs from one side and work your way to the other.
Take a good look at the wig hairline, you will notice that it is pretty dense. Start plucking some hairs from one side and work your way to the other. Next, take a pair of tweezers to pluck hair strands straight back, away from the face.
It would be better to start at your hairline, right above your ear, and work your way to the middle. We also recommend being careful not to pluck too many hairs one time and had better pluck a little bit at first and see how it looks. After all, if you over-pluck, there’s no going back and even occurred bald spots.
If you think that the hairline is still too dense, go back and repeat these steps.
Once you’re done with step three, comb out the excess hair you’ve plucked. Then, going from ear to ear, part a thin section of hair and flip it forward (over the head of the wig stand). Then pluck that layer and repeat this step about three to four more times to help get rid of the bulkiness.
Remember, when you pluck your hair, you do not just need to pluck the front of your hairline near your forehead, also need to pluck several layers of hair to make the entire front of the wig look less dense.
Take your favorite comb to create a middle part or a side part according to your preference. It will help you create a fun hairstyle or a more sophisticated and trendy look.
In the end, don't forget the baby hair! Use a brush to brush forward a few traces of the wig hair at the hairline, cut desired length, and then se edge control gel.
