Are you trying to find the perfect way to make a fabulous wig for yourself but need help figuring out where to start? Look no further. In this article, we’ll provide you with all the tips and tricks you need to understand how to flatten hair for a wig. Read on now and get ready for excellent results!
Hair between 4 and 8 inches long
You can likely curl your hair to form a sequence of flat, wide “pin curls.” The hair should be positioned at the top and the back of your head. Avoid placing them on or near your hairline, nape, or ears. It is not a good idea to cause bumps on the edges of your hair.
Utilize two bobby pins for each pin curl, and cross them across each other. If you’ve got bangs, take them off your face, exposing your hairline. Then, pin them using Bobby pins.
The pin curls should appear as smooth as possible. Do not twist the hair before making the curl, as it can add bulk. Although the exact location may differ, ensure you have two strong pin curls that are very flat at the upper part of the head and one on either side. These will be needed to hold your loose curly bob wig to the place.
Hair 8-16 inches long
If your hair is not thin, it is recommended to put the majority of your hair in braids or divide it into four or three sections and wrap them tightly on your head. Pin curl preparation for shorter hair is likely too heavy for thick or lengthy hair.
If you’re sporting, bangs take them off your face, exposing your hairline. Then, pin them on using Bobby pins. However, you do require two pins that are small and flat curls on the side of your head. The pin curls serve to hold your wig in place.
Avoid starting braids by putting them on your nape. The best way to do this is to raise your braids and keep any bulk around the edges. You can tie hair braids on your head. Try to keep the braids in the back and upper of your head. It would be best if you made them as flat as possible to reduce the size and bulk.
Long or curly hair over 16 inches
You might have to devise an alternative method for getting your hair ready. This could involve plaiting your hair on your head before placing the sections against your head or creating several hair buns (keeping the hair as straight as possible).
Most important is to ensure that your hair is safe, as smooth and as contained as possible, and comfortable enough to wear this way all day long. If your hair’s in a different position or isn’t quite as straight, your hair might need to be flatter and fit correctly.
A slight variance won’t be a huge issue, but a significant deviation could lead to problems. Several kinds of hair are available to choose from, but body wave bundles with frontal hair are one of the top choices for a perfect look and feel.
If you usually wear your hair straight, then you must plan to wear it this way when you are doing your head tracing and when you wear your hair. It’s the same for the reverse. If you don’t have your hair straightened, you should plan to wear it with its natural style when you trace your head or whenever you wear your hair.
