5 Secrets to The Most Natural Looking Lace Front

As advanced as today’s Lace Front technology is, your wig can still give you away (especially to other wig wearers!) if you don’t follow these simple tips.

1. Measure, Measure, Measure

No one will mistake a wig for your natural hair if it’s the wrong size! So take proper measurements (including CIRCUMFERENCE, FRONT TO BACK, AND EAR-TO-EAR) and carry them when wig shopping. Different wig brands have different sizing, so you can’t blindly assume you’re always Petite, Average, or Large.

2. Tweeze Your Lace Front

A little custom plucking makes your wig’s hairline naturally imperfect AND more like your own for a truly seamless look.

  • Take pictures of your own hairline (front and sides) for reference.
  • Secure the wig to a mannequin head and comb the hair back. (Some people prefer to wet fibers first.)
  • Start at your hairline, just above your ear, and work your way to the middle. And make sure to pluck the hair, not the lace (you could rip it).

3. Choose a Rooted Shade

ROOTED SHADES’ darker roots mimic the look of natural hair growth—adding an extra layer of realism to today’s multi-dimensional shades. Explore all of ENVY’s Rooted Colors here—and when choosing one, make sure the root color goes with your eyebrows and skin tone.

4. Get a Custom Cut

There are many things a stylist can do to make a wig look more natural, including trimming,  thinning (to remove excess bulk) and reshaping  (to better suit your face shape). But it’s important that your stylist has experience cutting wigs— because unlike your own hair, it won’t grow back.

5. Blend With Makeup at The Hairline

You can make your Lace Front “disappear” by matching it to your own skin tone. After putting your wig on, use a small, soft brush to apply foundation to the lace. You don’t need a lot—you’re just tinting the lace, not “painting” it. (This trick can also be used along your wig’s part.)

The secret to a perfectly natural look is a slightly imperfect part, says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. “Gently reposition strands along the part line or snip a few wispy pieces using manicure scissors—AND some restraint—for a slightly messy part that looks all your own.”

For first-time wig wearers, “The trick is to stay close to the color of your eyebrows,” notes Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. If not, “then consider dyeing your eyebrows to match your chosen wig color.”

“Few people know that wigs can be styled just like natural hair—and that most hairstylists are happy to give your wig a custom cut,” says Designer and CEO, Alan Eaton. “Trimming bangs and shaping to your exact specifications can help make your wig indecipherable from your own natural hair.”
