How to Choose the Most Natural looking Wig

1. Choose the 100% Human Hair Wig
Wigs are mainly divided into human hair wigs and synthetic wigs. Synthetic wigs are made from chemical materials. They have a shorter lifespan, are not heat resistant, and are more prone to breaking. They are less expensive than human hair wigs because of their drawbacks. On the other hand, human hair wigs are made of real, recycled human hair. It is more durable than synthetic wigs and can withstand the high temperatures of styling tools. Sure, it costs a little more than a synthetic wig, but in the long run, it's well worth the investment! If your budget is not enough, you can choose to buy during merchant events, such as Black Friday and tax refund season, and the prices are very favorable.

But one thing you need to pay attention to is that some wig manufacturers may mix animal hair or synthetic fibers into human hair. The resulting wigs are of poor quality, easy to fall off, have an unpleasant smell, and have an unnatural appearance. Careful discernment and discrimination are required when making a choice. Choosing a reputable manufacturer and a high-quality human hair wig is the first step to achieving a natural look.

3. Consider Lace Wig
If you are new to wigs, here is a reference blog for a basic understanding of different types of human hair wigs: 10 Different Wig Types Explanation. Lace wigs are the most popular and natural-looking option on the market. Workers tie hair strands into lace holes with their hands to replicate the appearance of the scalp, giving the impression that the hair is growing out of your head. The larger the lace area, the more you can section it off, allowing for greater freedom and natural styling. However, keep in mind that a bigger lace area often means a higher price due to increased material and labor costs.

There are two common types of lace: transparent lace and HD Lace. Transparent lace is thicker and more durable, with a noticeable appearance that might require extra techniques during installation, like melting the lace to match your skin tone. HD lace, as the name suggests, is high-definition and provides a flawless look. However, be ready for some regular maintenance, particularly if you decide to employ adhesive for installation, a bit more caution is required while eliminating any remaining glue.

4. Choose the Right Wig Density
Choose a density that suits your face shape and personal style without looking too thick or sparse. Generally speaking, wigs with a density of 180% are suitable for most people and are a popular choice in the consumer market.

5. Select Pre-plucked Wig
Observing your natural hairline reveals that the density is not uniform, especially at the forehead. Selecting a wig that has already been plucked enables you to achieve a tailored density along the hairline, resulting in a less uniform appearance that is more akin to the growth of natural hair. You can improve the natural appearance of your wig by plucking the hairline.
