What is it in some wigs that make them completely unrecognisable and the on-lookers are unable to identify them as wigs and differentiate them from natural hair? The difference lies in the colouring at the hairline. The main aim of a good wig is a natural-looking hairline. Every undetectable wig has a subtle hint of colour around the edges. In natural hair, the hair at the edges of the hairline, framing the face, is of a slightly lighter shade and then gradually darkens as it moves inwards and upwards. Good quality extensions replicate this shading process by the use of lowlights and highlights to become undetectable.
Bad hair extensions are far darker at the hairline making the wigs look like a cap. So, the next time you shop for a wig, check the colour to ensure that the hair towards the face is lighter in colour shade. Even a minor difference of a shade or two can make enough of an impact. Match the colour along the edges of the hair products to the colour of your skin, just like natural hair. If you already have wigs and you wish to improve them, get those coloured along the hairline. Any competent beautician can colour hair wigs to harmonize with your skin tone and make the wigs look natural.
