Lace front wigs are the kind of wigs that look like they are growing from your scalp allowing you to part the hair. In case you are wondering how to make your wig look natural, we can give you some quick and easy tips to help you along the way. Here are some general tips we want to share with anyone who is trying to learn how to make your lace front wig look natural.
1.A common mistake that people make is that they place the wig too far up on their head which shrinks their forehead and makes it look unnatural. So first, you should place the wig near your natural hairline.
2.We all have baby hair around the edges and shorter hairs in the front that fades into your longer hair. The main concern about lace front wigs is that often times the hair line looks very square. To make your wig look more natural, baby hairs are the things you want to re-create on the wig.
3.After you thin out the hairline you will still notice that the hairline has a very square look. So once again you want to imitate your hairline and use tweezers to pluck the straightness from the edges, thus mimicking a more natural hairline.
Tips about how to deal with the baby hair:
1.Some wigs come with baby hair. If not, you can make your own by razoring the hair in the front to make them shorter.
2.Combing a small amount of your own hair or edges forward and then putting on the wig can help your wig look more realistic. Make sure to blend the edges and the wig.
3.Some elements in a wig may look really fake by being too narrow. Some wigs, for some reason, have a very short part. To make your part look more realistic, use tweezers to pluck around the part to widen it.

Recently, we received several feedback and questions about bleaching knots on a lace wig, so today, we will talk about this, shall we?
Some people tried to bleach the knots at home in order to make the hairline and handtied knot more natural; however, things are always going to the opposite way, the hair is messed up and became shedding. Why? Is this because my wig is in bad quality? Can I bleach my hair construction/ cap then? How do I do to reduce the harm to my hair if I bleach knots? Hope you can find your answers in this article .
Firstly, you need to choose right products. Attention! Not every wigs can be bleached!
If you purchase a natural black wig, here you go, you can bleach knots as you wish!
If you purchase a wig that labeled that was bleached once and never be dyed before, yes, you could bleach knots a little.
If your wig is labelled 1B#,2# and it is a dyed color one, we badly not recommend you bleach knots.
Also, almost every dark color (except natural black) wig could not sustain re-bleached more than once. Outer layer of hair is covered by the hair dye, the hair dye cream like a protective layer to protect the inner layer hair. If we bleach the dyed hair, the protective layer would “have a fight” with the bleach liquid, and we can tell the hair would have the great damage and the wigs becomes shedding as the result of we're bleaching knots.
After I choose a right wig, how do I bleach?
Here're several key points and key steps that we usually follow from:
Developer (at the correct volume)
Your Closure/Frontal/Lace Wig
Adjust either your lace wig, frontal or closure, pin it down to your forehead.
*If your closures carry the baby hairs, it’s easily pin them down with clips.
Mix up bleach powder and professional developer in a mixing bowl by equal volume. Make sure to stir the mixture until there’re no lumps in the bowl and to get the moderate consistency.
Gently dab the bleach onto the lace by using your mixing brush. If you put too much pressure onto the lace with the brush, the bleach mixture will leak through from the cap and will bleach the hair. Be sure you apply enough bleach onto the lace to ensure you’re bleaching every single the knot. After you’re applying the bleach, cover the lace closure in the aluminum foil.
Make sure you keep the bleach on until the knots turn into a honey blonde color, then rinse the bleach out. This is vital step because you want to wait until your wig becomes blonde, or you will have a brassy lace.
Rinse the wig upside down quickly to avoid getting mixture onto the hair. After you rinse the bleach out, wash it with a neutralizing shampoo to prevent the chemical processing. Leave shampoo on the wig for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse out. Conditioning your wig to keep it from getting dried out afterwards.
