Choosing the Right Lace Wig Style and Color for a Natural Look

Let’s get started with the basics. For the most natural look, choose a wig style and color that closely matches your natural hair. You’ll also want to stick with cuts and colors within two shades of your own to avoid an obvious wig appearance. If possible, opt for hand-tied lace wigs made of human hair for the most realistic texture, sheen, and movement. These provide fuller coverage and a hairline that fades into your scalp.


Shoulder-length styles or longer are easiest to blend and style naturally, while shorter cuts may require more frequent trimming to match new hair growth. Loose waves or curls help disguise the cap edge and any signs of shedding. Avoid severe angles, blunt cuts, or asymmetric styles which can be hard to style naturally.


Have a stylist color match your wig to your natural roots for the most seamless blend. You can ask them to help choose a shade that complements your skin tone. For the most natural grow-out, choose a color one to two shades lighter at the roots. Multi-dimensional color with highlights helps create depth and realism.

With the right wig selection and subtle color-matching techniques, you’ll be rocking a natural look in no time. Regular trims and touch-ups, especially along the hairline, will keep your style fresh as the days and weeks go by.

Customizing and Styling Your Lace Wig for a Seamless Blend

By following these tips, you can achieve the perfect blend for your wig, creating a natural appearance.

Choosing a Natural-Looking Lace Color

Select a lace that closely matches your skin tone for the most seamless blend. Lighter skin tones pair well with light brown or transparent lace, while darker skin tones match better with medium brown or black lace.

Plucking the Hairline

Plucking a few hairs from the front hairline of your lace wig helps create a softer, more natural transition between the lace and your skin. Use tweezers to pluck hairs one by one and take it slow until you achieve your desired result.

Combing Baby Hairs

Baby hairs, the fine hairs along your natural hairline, help soften the appearance of your lace wig. Use a toothbrush or small comb to brush a few lace wig hairs down and toward your face. Apply a bit of gel or edge control product to set the baby hairs in place, and check that the baby hairs lay naturally and frame your face.

Styling for Natural Movement

Style your lace wig in loose, natural-looking styles that allow the hair to move freely. Avoid tight updos, braids, or cornrows that can cause the lace wig to look more wig-like. Loose waves, curls, and blowouts give lace wigs a realistic, carefree style.

Caring for Your Lace Wig Properly to Maintain a Natural Appearance

Following these basic care guidelines will keep your lace wig looking fresh and natural for everyday wear or special occasions. With regular maintenance, your wig can last for years.


Wash your wig about once a week to prevent oil and dirt buildup by using a mild shampoo and conditioner designed specifically for wigs. Gently work the products into the hair and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Avoid rubbing the wig, which can cause frizz and tangling, and air dry your wig away from direct heat.


Limit the use of heat styling tools which can damage the hair over time. When you do use them, be very careful and use the proper heat setting for your wig type. Also, use products designed for wigs and in moderation as too much product will make your wig look unnatural.


Keep your wig on a wig stand when you’re not wearing it; this maintains the shape and prevents tangling. Store in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight, and don’t stack wigs on top of each other.

Selecting the Perfect Wig

Our high-quality human hair wigs can also be dyed to your desired color for the most natural appearance.

Styling for Naturalness

How you style your wig is just as important as the wig itself. Avoid over-styling, which can make a wig appear unnatural. Instead, opt for loose waves, layered cuts, or styles that frame your face. Use a wide-tooth comb and your fingers instead of brushes which can cause frizz and pull hair from the lace. Lightweight serums and sprays designed for wigs will keep your style in place without weighing hair down.

Maintaining Your Investment

To keep your lace wig looking natural and lasting long, commit to regular maintenance. Wash your wig using a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner made for wigs. Gently pat with a towel to absorb excess water and air dry completely. When not wearing your wig, store it on a mannequin head or wig stand to retain its shape. Limit the use of heat tools which can cause damage over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I secure my lace wig?
There are a few options for securing your lace wig. You can use wig clips, combs, or adhesive. Clips and combs provide a removable hold, while adhesive creates a semi-permanent bond. For the most natural look, consider an adhesive like wig glue or tape.
How often should I wash my lace wig?
As with natural hair, washing your lace wig too frequently can dry it out. Aim for washing every 7 to 14 days, depending on how much you sweat or use styling products. Use a mild shampoo and conditioner made specifically for wigs or extensions. Gently detangle your wig before washing and avoid scrubbing, which can cause frizz. Air dry your wig away from direct heat.
Can I heat-style my lace wig?
Yes, you can use heat tools like curling irons and flat irons on lace wigs, but do so carefully. Make sure to use a heat protectant spray and the proper heat setting for your wig's hair type. Start with a lower temperature and slowly increase the heat, but avoid keeping the heat tool in one section for too long. Allow your wig to cool completely before wearing it to avoid damage. Limit the use of heat tools to 1-2 times per week.
How long will my lace wig last?
With proper care and maintenance, a high-quality lace wig can last 6-12 months, with the lace material and hair quality being the biggest factors in a wig's longevity. Human hair wigs tend to last longer than synthetic. Keeping your wig washed, conditioned, and stored properly when not in use will maximize its lifespan. Avoid excessive heat, teasing, and over-brushing which can cause damage. Make minor repairs to lace or hairlines as needed.
