These days, synthetic wigs look fantastic and most really are difficult to detect as wigs. However, plonking them on your head and hoping that they will look fabulous won't work! When they are new, you have to do a bit of work to make sure they look more natural. This may be just ensuring that you are styling it in a way that looks good on you so do not be afraid to use products to hold your style in place.
When your wig arrives it may have a bit of a sheen to it. The blonde colours can be worse for this. We cover this problem in a previous blog post which can be viewed here:
The sheen does tone down when it has been washed a few times.
Customise!!! You might need your wig trimmed to make it look more realistic. This is best done by a hairdresser and a trim can make all the difference as the style is then tailored to you! We must stress that we are talking about a TRIM and not a full scale cut! Do not attempt this yourself!
There are some fabulous root sprays on the market at the moment which can help to transform your wig. These can be sprayed onto the lace to hide any shine that you are conscious might be on show. It's doubtful that it IS on show but anything that helps the wig wearer feel more confident is a good thing in our book! A lot of people prefer wigs with rooted colours as they feel this in itself is far more realistic but if your wig doesn't have a darker colour at the roots, then the root sprays can help with that too. Also, if you just want to tone down any sheen, use a matching root spray colour and give your wig a light spray. The spray washes out easily. Try looking on You Tube for help with wigs. There are some fantastic vloggers on there who review wigs and show you how they wear their own wigs and they really are a massive help and inspiration!
Accessorise! Put sun glasses on your head! Use hats and scarves. Clip your wig up for a different look. Use a head band. Experiment!
Be confident! The chances are no one will ever know you are wearing a wig!!
