1. Firstly, look at your wig to see if it wants any chopping. Most wigs want chopping and a bit of bit more layering even when it is purchased in your desired type. On this case, I wanted to layer the again and the sides of the wig.
2. Presently, the again of the wig appears to be like like this:
I felt that it wanted a little bit of trimming so I layered it.
Please note, when reducing or layering wigs, do not, I repeat, Do not lower the wig horizontally unless you’re cutting away a variety of hair, eg, slicing a long wig to a short wig.
It’s because cutting the wig horizontally would make the wig look unnatural. Even with bangs, try to chop it vertically so that the strands fall more naturally.
It takes more time however it is much more value it, trust me.
3) Before we transfer on to the precise slicking back of the wig, we need to chop all the pieces down to the correct shape first.
Dearka has little to no sideburns. (Ref shot)
Slicking again the sides of the wig is possible however in this case, I wanted to go away a little bit of facet burns on the sides because my hair is natural hair is black and slicking the sides back would danger showing the wig internet and my natural hair.
Therefore, what we can do to compensate is to chop down the sides as quick as potential. Once more, use the identical method to cut and layer the sides all the way down to size. Please don’t get carried away chopping and remember to stop and put on the wig so that you do not unintentionally lower it too short.
4. Now that the sides and again are accomplished, we can move on the front. Slicking again the wig. The primary point of this complete tutorial. 😉
What we have to do first, is to study how the fringe of your wig is structured. To get it to slick again nicely, you should separate the fringe by it is layers.
Examine the wig scalp!

This is the place the tremendous-toothed comb comes in handy.
Use the sharp tip of the comb to separate the layers. Starting from the layer on the back, comb the layer backwards, and backcomb it a little bit. Ensure that it is neat.
Spray the layer (with the comb still holding it again) and activate the hair dryer. Use the hair dryer to freeze the type in place. Do not turn the heat on too high or you may danger melting the wig fibers.
Heed Mr Star’s advice!
Repeat this step to the opposite fringe layers till you get to the one right on the front. Do the identical factor to the last layer however don’t pull it back too laborious. That is to forestall the wig cap from displaying.
5. Fashion the rest of the wig and slick it again.
Your finish product should look something like this. 😉
