How to thin out a wig: things to prepare?
If you decide to thin your covering head, you need thinning shears (scissors) or pair of tweezers. Make sure that you are not using the regular scissors or you will mess your wig. The fine teeth on thinning shears only trim hair to create a realistic look. Besides, you need some necessary things such as hair clips, brush, etc.
How To Thin Out A Wig By Yourself?
Determine where you want to thin. Put the wig on and look at yourself in the mirror. Determine where you want to thin the hair and make a mental note of how you want the wig to appear. This helps guide your work as you begin.
Create a part you want to work on. Create a part in your hairpiece to isolate the area of the wig you want to work on. Put the front tooth of the comb or precision tip against your scalp and then move the comb from front to back to part the hair. Place a clip-on hair you are not focused on to secure it while you work.
Prepare to remove. Hold a section of hair between your fingers and then squeeze the thinning shears on that section. Use the shears as close to the root as possible to capture full strands. Continue to hold the section of hair and put the shears down.
Remove the excess hair. Comb through the section of hair you hold in your hands to remove the excess hair. The comb captures a small amount of hair set free by the thinning shears.
Do the same process and keeping plucking. Repeat Steps 2-4 until all the sections of your hairpiece you want to thin have been completed. Comb through your hair a final time and style as necessary.
