It might seem to be a simple task, but putting on a wig is all about small things which make a big difference on photos. Here are couple of tips which helped me to improve ^^
I always start with putting a silicon cap on. It will prevent the wig from slipping during photoshoots and save you a lot of trouble. It also protects from staining ^^ It’s best to position a silicon cap evenly. If you put it too close to eyebrows it might be visible underneath the bangs. I try to position the wig correctly from the start and place the bangs evenly. I always start with putting the wig on the doll face so that it slightly covers her eyes.
This is how it looks after the wig is on. I make sure that the wig cap isn’t rolled anywhere on the edges and that the wig is sticking to the head perfectly. Then I start to make adjustments by slowly pulling hair in the back. I try to place the bangs at the same height as the eyebrows or slightly above. Make sure to avoid touching the faceup. I usually hold the head in position by touching the chin and tip of the head.
Then I brush the bangs gently. Margaret’s wig looks great with straight bangs. You adjust the lenght of the bangs again if necessary by pulling hair in the back gently. You can also brush the bangs to the side for a different look.
When I’m happy with the bangs, I use the tip of the brush to bring hime cut to the front. Make sure to do it on both sides. I recommend to put a little bit of hair in the front on both sides – it makes a doll look more natural and covers the joint in the neck ^^
At the end, I brush the hair in the back with my fingers to minimalize stray hairs on the photo. It’s always good to check if there are no hair on the face.
Hope you enjoy the final look^^
