How To Pluck A Wig
Plucked human hair wigs have become more and more popular recently, and more and more wig lovers and wig wearers have made Plucked wigs their first choice for human hair wigs. After all, most pre-plucked lace wigs have a thin hairline, giving them a natural look. Do you want to have super natural plucked human hair wigs? Do you know how to pluck a wig by yourself? In this blog today, we will introduce you to the detailed steps of hair plucking. Then let us read on together.
1. What is a Pre-plucked Wig?
A pre-plucked wig means that the hair wig will have a natural hairline where the baby hair has been plucked already. It makes the hairline look more natural. The common wigs usually have an obvious and straight hairline, which makes them look like fake wigs. But the pre-plucked hairline wigs solve that problem. When you get a pre-plucked wig, you will find the density on the top is much lower, and the hair length around the hairline is unequal, which is just like your own natural hairline.
2. Why do you pluck a wig?
When it comes to lace front wigs, the key is the hairline. To pluck a wig is to use tweezers to pluck out the excess hair around the hairline of the lace front wig. Think of a wig that hasn't been plucked -- the hairline is so straight it looks very unnatural. If you look at your hairline, you will notice that the length of the hair is not uniform. This is because new hair is growing all the time. So unless you want your wig to have a helmet effect, grab the tweezers and get rid of the excess.
3. Here's how to pluck a wig.
What you will need:
- A lace wig;
- A wig stand;
- Some pins;
- A rattail comb;
- A pair of tweezers;
- A pair of scissors.
Steps To Pluck Human Hair Wigs:
Step 1 Put your hair on the wig stand
First, you'll need to secure the wig to the wig stand with pins. This will make sure that your lace front wig doesn't move or slip all over when you are using tweezers to pluck your hairline.
Step 2 Comb through the front of your hair
Comb your hairline back with a rattail comb, making sure there are no knots or tangles. Then use your less-dominant hand to pull the hair back away from the hairline.
Step 3 Slowly start to pluck the wig
Take the tweezers and pull the hair straight back from the face. Pluck about every other hair strand to make sure that everything is spaced out (this also helps you avoid bald spots). Start at the hairline above the ears and work your way down the middle. If you think that the hairline is still too dense, go back and repeat these steps.
Take your time - if you over-pluck too much, there is no going back. You'll also want to make sure you're pulling the hair, not the lace. If you use tweezers on the lace you may tear it.
Step 4 Repeat the above steps
Repeat the above steps, and then pick up a few layers of the wig. Remember, when you pull out a wig, you're not just pulling out the hairline near your forehead. The idea is to make the entire front of the wig look less dense, so you'll need to pull out a few layers of your lace front wig.
So, once you've done step three, brush out the excess hair. Then, from ear to ear, part a small section of hair and flip it forward (over the head of the wig stand). Pulling out that layer of hair makes the wig look less bulky.
Brush all the hair you’ve plucked out and you have a natural-looking hairline.
Tips To Make Wigs Hairline More Natural
Tip 1 Before you pluck the hairline of your lace front wig, you can take a picture of your natural hairline or find a hairline you like on the Internet as a reference for your hairline plucking.
Tip 2 Please be patient and take your time. According to the photo, the hairline is plucked less at a time. Make a small or thin parting to prevent too much hair loss at once. Because once the hair is pulled out, there is nothing to be done.
Tip 3 The last and most important step is to check if the area of the wig looks denser than the rest. If you notice some dense sections, then pluck away the excess hair right away. Following the correct steps will ensure that the output of the wig will be authentic and the wig will look natural when you wear it.
With these simple and easy steps, anyone can easily create a wig for any hair type. Plucking the lace front wig will make the wig look more natural and better looking; your wig will look less fake, and you can wear the wig with confidence and ease. Just remember the steps, and in a few minutes, you can have a natural and beautiful lace front wig.
