How to Create a Natural Front Hairline for a Hair System

The front hairline is arguably the most critical aspect of achieving a natural-looking appearance with a hair system. A seamlessly blended front hairline can make all the difference in creating a convincing and realistic look. Whether you're new to wearing a hair system or seeking to enhance your styling techniques, mastering the art of creating a natural front hairline is essential. In this guide, we'll explore step-by-step instructions and tips to help you achieve a flawless front hairline for your hair system.

Understanding the Importance of a Natural Front Hairline

A natural front hairline is essential for creating the illusion of real hair. Unlike traditional wigs, which often feature harsh edges or visible seams, a hair system with a well-crafted front hairline seamlessly blends with your natural hairline, enhancing realism and confidence.


Bleached knots

After the hair system has been made, we can use bleaching powder to lighten the color of the hair root to make the root and the knot virtually undetectable.
Our current bleaching techniques allow us to bleach the hair roots to a very natural light color without causing so much damage to the root and to confine the bleaching to as small an area as possible.
Overall, it creates a very natural look. Bleaching will still shorten the lifespan of the hair though for those customers whose sole priority is a natural effect, this is a sacrifice they are prepared to make.

However, not all hair replacement systems can have bleached knots.
We usually just bleach knots on French lace or Swiss lace.
French lace is a popular choice because it is both natural and durable.
The biggest hair density for French lace is medium-heavy.
Swiss lace, on the other hand, is softer and less detectable than French lace.
It is very thin and delicate and so its lifespan is normally only around one month.
The biggest density for Swiss lace is medium light. So, despite its short lifespan, Swiss lace is for those clients who's number one priority is realism.
In terms of bleaching knots, it is easier to bleach light-coloured hair.
The lighter the hair color, the better the bleaching effect.
Colors darker than #1B is too dark to bleach knots so for these colors we need to use another technique: dye-after.

Dye-after treatment

Dye-after treatment is an alternative technique for bleaching knots when the hair color is darker than #1B.
As we mentioned above, when the hair color is darker than #1B, it is very hard to lighten the hair root color again with bleach powder. The dye-after treatment technique is as follows:
First, we can either use light-colored hair to make the hairpiece or as is more common, just use light hair for the first 1″ of the front hairline area.
Once the hair system is finished, we will dye the light-coloured hair to a dark color to match the clients’ color sample or the required color number.
Now when we dye the light-coloured hair, we will not dye the hair root. Instead, we will leave the hair root as it is which will, in turn, create the same effect as bleaching the knots would create.

Being a hair system factory, we produce hair systems in bulk at wholesale price, so we don’t have a way to do dyeing work as delicate as some salons might be able to do. So, for factories, dye-after treatment is just available for colors that are darker than #1B.
We also don’t suggest doing dye-after to the whole piece because there is a chance you might dye the rest of the base.
Many of our salon owners or wholesalers will simply ask us to use a light color to make the front hairline and then they will do dye-after in their own salon, or they will sell it as it is to salons.
The salons can then charge a dye-after service fee and do delicate dyeing work with coloring products specifically designed for salons that cause less harm to hair.

A suitable front contour

Choosing an appropriate front contour helps to create a natural front effect too.
Different people have different front contours. Some people have sharp front contours, some have flat ones whereas other people have irregular ones.  
So, you need to ask just fitting contour for your clients then the hair system can give them a perfect frontal hairline.  We have several common front contours: A, AA, B, BB, C and CC.

C or CC contours are relatively flat, and these two front contours fit most women. If a female customer has no specific requirements, then we will make a CC contour.
B or BB are both sharper than A and AA and customers should choose what best suits them.
We also have a standard front contour that is between A and CC. This is our default option for men’s hair replacements.
Women, however, tend to have a rounder and flatter front contour so you need to be aware of this as our standard front contours will not be suitable for women.
The contour will be too sharp. It’s best if you make templates for your clients then we can make the contour according to your template.

By following these steps and tips, you can create a natural front hairline that seamlessly blends with your hair system, enhancing your overall appearance and confidence.
With patience, practice, and attention to detail, achieving a flawless front hairline is well within reach.
