How To Thin Out A Wig
The winter is coming, so human hair wigs will be more necessary for every woman. During summer the wig will be a little hot, but in winter the wig will feel more comfortable and more natural.
Recently one of my customers bought her first wig from us, but feel the hair is too much, just means the density is a little too high for her. Because this customer has some of her own hair, so if just got our normal 130% density wig then will be too heavy. Here we will suggest some suggestions to make this wig work. Many customers feel high density wig will be great, so that they can always trim away the hair, but they can’t add on hair. Unfortunately, too much hair can cause that stereotypical “wiggy” look that unnatural .
Usually you havetwo choices for thin out your wig : to a professional salon to look for a great hair stylist or just DIY by yourself. A stylist with experience with wigs is great, of course, but any hairstylist can handle the job.but this will be cost you some. As we all known the professional hair stylist always expensive, right ? so If you are confident in your abilities, we can give you some helpful advice.
First you need prepare : Thinning scissors (this is inexpensive and can be bought online or at a local beauty store)，comb, glue or oil used to wear wigs and Eyelash brush.they are all cheap tool to help to thin out the wig. And after prepare them then place your wig on a wig stand or head form. And need to cut the hair by the Thinning scissors start at the top of the hair, use the comb to make hair smooth first, please remember don’t cut from the bottom. When thinning out, you need to stick with the middle of the hair, not the outer layers. At the same time, if you cut too close to the root, the will be too much short hair hat stick straight up.then this will make your wig looks too bad. So never make your wig with too much short hair.
Then need to style the hair by hair glue and eyelash brush, especially the natural hairline. After use glue and comb with the brush the wigs will be more natural and get the pre plucked hairline. Periodically, try the wig on and see how the hair density looks on you. Make the wig denisty match you best, not too heavy also please remember not too thin too. If you thin out too much hair then the wig will be looks to thin and have no enough hair. So don’t cut too much. Remember, you can always cut more hair off, but you can’t add more hair on. So when you cut them just do one strand by one strand , and just slowly and gradually.
Also wigs usually have several style and different type like full lace wigs,lace front wigs and 360 wigs,Full lace wigs all is hand tied wigs, lace front and 360 wigs will be half hand made and half machine made. But all of these style can both use the same way to thin out to make it work for you. Just for bundles with closure or frontal, when you make the wigs by yourself you can choose the density by yourself. Also if your own hair is ok just want add more density maybe you can just choose tip hair, tape hair or clip hair will be ok . This way can make your hair to be thicker also can save your time to work it out thin.
