Pluck your wig

To make your wig look real, pluck the hairs along the wig’s part and hairline. If the wig is left not plucked then it looks unnatural and denser. It looks like something fixed over the head. To make it more natural pluck the hairs to appear sparser near the hairline. 

Pluck the hairs near your ear and also pluck some hairs from the front hairline and comb it upward over the head. There should be a gradient effect while hairs are moving freely. Lightly plucking is enough to create a natural look at the dense part.
