Yes, celebrities often play with wigs, trying on new signature characters mostly created by their stylists. But Kylie Jenner, as a true beauty maniac, went even further. Her collection of wigs has both natural looking manes and crazy vivids. Why did a 21-year-old create a viral trend around wigs? How do her stylists make them look like real hair? Read our investigation!
How to Make a Wig Look Real?
Sometimes it’s obvious that Kylie is wearing a wig. But some of her fake manes look very real, like she’s finally decided to betray her black bob. Kylie knows special hacks that allow a wig look like real hair!
- Choose quality lace front wigs because synthetic ones can look real only on selfies with professionally beneficial lighting.
- Don’t forget about baby hairs when adjusting your wig.
- Rooted wigs is key to a natural look.
- Messy parting can help your wig seem real.
- Almost each wig needs trimming according to your face shape.
- Always line a wig with your natural hairline.
- KNOW YOUR SIZE: take out your tape measure and remember it, especially while shopping online.
The last one is the main tip for naturalness from Kylie’s wigs creator Tokyo Styles. “You have your measurements before, and it’s all pretty much fitted before you get there, so it’s just a bit of clipping here and there for the perfect fit in the back and on the sides. I normally cut the front of the wig to make it look as natural as possible.” he told Allure. He made more than 100 for Mrs. Jenner, not counting celebs like Cardi B, Rihanna, etc.
Having Fun Has No Rules
Kylie loves dressing up! Young mother slash businesswoman, she crushes our stereotypes wearing neon green wigs or naked dresses. Mixing runway trends with different aesthetics popular on the Internet, she’s a living meme, whether we like her or not.
While choosing a $50 synthetic wig for fun, there are no rules. Brands eventually began making them more quality, stylish and suitable not only for creepy Halloween looks. Be brave and experiment with colors because that’s how you can learn what suits you best. Kylie is brave enough to wear extra long wigs both with evening gowns and sport suits.
Her other passion is all about vivids. Neon, pastel or metallic, her unicorn wigs are mostly of all-over hair color, with no highlights or fashionable multidimensional painting techniques. This may be because she sells cosmetics through her Internet pics, and coating the hair with a single shade attracts more attention to face and its features.
Every Style Is Possible
Kylie’s life routine implies going to numerous fittings while facetiming her stylist and discussing what exactly the style of wig she wants. Like a true princess, she doesn’t give up when something is “unachievable”. This is how she tries on looks that are not typical for her natural hair color, length or texture. From classy high pony to elegant Hollywood waves, Kylie travels through aesthetics like a magician. And it’s sad to realize that it takes so much energy to achieve that “iconic looks”.
You never know when the party called life will end. Take the most out of it! Even if you have to wear a cancer wig, think of Samantha from Sex and The City who rocked this story. There’re so many role models around, but only you choose what to accept and integrate in your life. I mean, Kylie can mean both spending hours in salon or being brave and unexpectable.
