How to Pluck a Wig-The Best and Easiest Way
No one wants to look like a "wig" when they are wearing a wig. One of the main things to do when customizing a wig is to pluck the hair. Plucking is when you use a pair of tweezers to gently pluck the hair around the wig's hairline and parting line. Plucked human hair wigs have become increasingly popular lately and have even become a major option for wigs and are widely used. After all, most pre-plucked lace wigs have a thin hairline and give a natural look. The goal of pluck a wig is to have a seamless and natural-looking hairline. If you are unsure how to do this, read on for tips on how to pluck a wig.
Why should you pluck a wig?
Because pluck a wig is so common nowadays, and pre-plugged wigs have become available and are sweeping the hairdressing industry. However, some wigs do not come pre-pulled and you may be wondering why you should pull them out. If you like the look of a realistic wig, then you should pull your wig. This way you can create a very natural and realistic hairline.
Should I bleach my hair knots?
If you find that your knots are not bleached, then we recommend that you bleach your knots to get a more natural look. This can be difficult, but we're here to give you some tips on how to bleach your knots. Whether you bleach your wig, bleach your lace front, or bleach your lace closure, these tips can help you.
Turn the wig over and pin it to the foam head/model head.
Cut off your little hairs.
Use bleach, don't pour it all over the wig and make sure the mixture doesn't run.
Use a developer between 20 and 30
Using a blending brush, gently spot brush your mixture. If the pressure is too high, your mixture will leak and this will cause your hair to be bleached.
Make sure you have enough bleach to cover all the hair knots.
Cover your lace with aluminum foil or gauze.
Once the knots are no longer visible and they are honey blonde in color, wrap the foil or gauze around them.
Rinse out the bleach and wash the wig with a neutralizing shampoo to allow the bleaching process to finish, leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse it out. Condition the wig so that it does not become dry and brittle.
Dry the hair, towel off and allow to air dry. If you choose to use a hair dryer, use the -heat protection mode and blow dry on the lowest temperature.
How do I pluck the hairline of my wig?
Styrofoam head / or mannequin head
Pins to keep the wig in place
Clips to hold the hair in place
If you've purchased a wig without pre-pulled hair, here are some simple steps to customize your wig to achieve the look you want.
Step 1: Put the wig on your head
When placing your wig in front, be sure to use pins to hold it in place. This will ensure that your wig doesn't slip or slide around when you start to adjust your hair.
Step 2: Comb the front of the wig with your comb
Using your comb, remove any tangles or knots that you may have. With your other hand, pull your hair back.
Step 3. Start the hair-pulling process
Using your not-so-good hand, pull the hair back, grab your tweezers with your dominant hand, and start pulling the hair out of your face with quick strokes. Try to pluck every two hairs to make sure there is enough spacing. Plucking hair twice in one area can lead to the appearance of baldness. We recommend that you start plucking just above the ears and work your way down to the middle of the wig. This process may take some time, especially if it is your first attempt. It is best to take your time and pluck gently, rather than overdoing it and causing baldness.
Step 4: On the different layers of the hairline
Remember, you are not just plucking the first part of the hairline on the forehead area on your wig. Your ultimate goal is to make your wig look less dense and less "fake". To achieve this, you'll want to pluck the hair in layers, using a method of plucking every other hair or so. Once you have completed the third step from ear to ear in the first section, flip it forward and begin the next section. Repeat this until you are happy with your look, usually about four rows is all you need, but it depends on your preference. Brush your hair and you're done.
How do you fiddle with your hair?
First, part your hair to where you want it to be. Some areas look too "perfect" and it makes the hair look like a wig. Once the hair is parted, start pulling out the rest of the hair. You must also pluck the hair on both sides, skipping one hair at a time. Make sure you don't pluck too much, which will cause the parting to be too wide and could lead to the appearance of baldness. Comb out the access hair.
Can I pluck without tweezers?
The steps for plucking a hairline or wig part without tweezers are basically the same as using tweezers. You must start with a small section of hair in the first row and start plucking with your hands. During this step, make sure that you are plucking the small part of the wig's hair. The most important thing when pulling hair by hand is to make sure that you are pulling the hair away from the roots of the wig. As you pluck the hair, grab a few hairs, wrap your fingers around them once and pull. Continue to do this, one part at a time, until you get the look you want.
What if I don't have a Styrofoam head or a model head?
For some people who may not have purchased these tools in advance, then you can follow the method below. If you don't have a Styrofoam head or model head, you can remove the wig on your own head. When doing so, you must hold on to the lace so that there is no over-pulling of hair. For some people, this is their preferred method of plucking so that they know exactly what to expect when they pluck.
If you follow the steps above, then you can achieve a flawless look effortlessly. Wig plucking will give you a more natural-looking wig almost immediately.

Are pre-filled ones better than other wigs?
Yes, pre-dipped lace wigs offer a more realistic and natural look because they mimic the same hairline with baby hairs in natural hairstyles. The hair strands in the wig near the hairline area are carefully plucked out, which is exactly how baby hair comes out.
Disadvantages of pre-pulled lace wigs
1) Since the hairline is thinner, the hair in that area will fall out faster and won't last as long.
2) The lace will be more visible.
3) If you plan to wear the lace wig behind your own natural hairline, a pre-pulled hairline will not work.
Does everyone need to pluck their wig?
Of course not. Pre-pulled lace wigs are really a matter of personal preference and there is never one way to wear a lace wig, nor is there one size fits all option that will make your lace front look more natural.
