If you are bored with long hair style, it is good time for you to try bob wig. Applying a wig so that one achieves a natural look is the key to wearing any type of wig. But some people will find bob wig not easy to style and look unnatural. Here are the steps for you to make a bob wig look natural.
Prepare the Wig
You should clip all hairs back from the edges of the wig so that they do not get caught up when attaching the wig to the head. This is especially important when attaching the wig with adhesive glue. For lace wigs, the lace should be trimmed as close to the hairline as possible, being careful not to damage the hairline.
Your natural hair needs to be braided or set flat and evenly against the scalp. Care should be taken to pull back all natural hair strands from the hairline. Some women choose to lay their natural hair in large soft curls against their head.
Prepare the Skin
You can use an alcohol solution on a cotton swab and gently wipe any oil from the hairline. This helps to ensure a secure attachment of the wig to the skin. Whether using adhesive tape or glue, one should apply scalp protector to the scalp. For those women with hair, use a flesh-colored wig cap to protect the natural hair. The wig cap should cover all natural hair. To keep the cap in place, apply adhesive over the edge of the cap and onto the skin.
If using adhesive glue, apply a thin layer to the entire hairline using a small makeup brush or cosmetic stick. If using a soft bond adhesive, don’t apply the wig immediately. Wait until the glue has become tacky. If using a hard bond adhesive, the wig can be applied immediately, as this type of glue bonds immediately. For those using adhesive tape, cut the double-sided tape to the desired lengths, until the entire hairline is covered. Attach one side to the hairline of the skin and press firmly.
Attach the Wig
Those attaching a wig with glue should start by attaching the wig at the hairline in the front middle of the forehead. Gently press the edge of the wig down against the glued skin, working around the hairline until it is attached around the entire hairline. If there is any glue beyond the wig hairline, wipe away with a cosmetic stick or Q-Tip dipped in alcohol solution.
For those attaching a wig with adhesive tape, place the wig on the head and begin lining up the hairline edges. Start at the center of the forehead and work out towards the temples. Then, proceed around to the back of the nape and attach the wig one adhesive strip at a time.
Style as Desired
Gently brush and style the wig to achieve the desired look, only once the adhesive has had time to set. Some bob wigs can take several minutes before a strong adhesive bond between wig and skin is achieved.
As long as you follow the above rules, you can easily make a bob wig look nature.
