How to trim a synthetic wig

So you bought a synthetic wig, but after a few days, weeks, or months of use, you find the wig already a little bit dull, and you finally decided to tweak it a bit by trimming it a little to give it some new shape or volume. How about some layers for your wig? One way to trim your synthetic wig is through razor cut. You may want to use fabric scissors instead of the regular scissors for better results. First take your hair and split it in half, drape it over your shoulder, and comb it out. Take a small layer of your hair starting at the top. Unless you are a hair expert, try not to take hair that’s framing your face because if you mix the middle hair with the front ones, they might not blend, and you may not like the result.

Another tip is to start cutting your hair in the lower part. Try not to cut the hair the normal way. One way to create good layers is to scrape the hair. Scrape means raking the scissors against the hair on a diagonal slope down. Do that to the rest of the hair in sections. In case you are still unsure on how to proceed, you may wish to consult a hairdresser specializing in wigs and let the trimming be done there. Please be careful when trimming the wig while wearing it on your head. It is always more secure, especially when you are untrained, to cut the wig while having placed the wig securely on a wig stand.
