    you kno when u part ur natural hair u see a bit of scalp and i was wondering what u would see if you decided to part your wig to tie it in a ponytail. would u see the net from the wig, which is totally unnatural or wouold u see something similar to the look of a scalp?

    it is the how long is a piece of string question. It depends on so many factors - the type of wig you are wearing, the type of base it is on. You may get away with showing nothing, maybe a base which looks like scalp, maybe some hideous wefting with holes so you couldn't do it. Most synthetic wigs have a natural parting put in them and human hair tend to have them so you can part where you please within reason.

    Take care.

    hey beth, my kiki topper has a very convincing scalp...so convincing that i wear it parted on the side (with bangs, of course, to cover the rim). i wear it in a ponytail all the time, but a low one, which retains my side part....if i were to brush it back in a regular ponytail (with no side part) it would still look like scalp. in general, i don't do a high ponytail b/c this would highlight the difference between the topper and my thinner hair underneath...but a low ponytail is fine and looks totally natural.

    it all depends on the wig, trust me I've had several different and they have gotten way better. I used to have ones with webbing and that would show a lot, but now you can get toppers that look like natural scalp, you can even get the whole wig to look like that. I had mine in braided pigtails the other day and it looked just fine from all angles.....so it all depends on the wig!
