How To Wear A Lace Front Wig

For those of you who are new to lace front wigs, let us show you how you can wear a lace front wig without it looking like you have on a wig.

Once you have picked out your perfect wig, before putting it on, be sure your hair is out of the way. If you have long hair, pin it up as close to your scalp as possible. For shorter hair, just comb it back.

Once you have pinned your hair back, ensuring it is flat, you will need to cover it using a wig cap. If you don’t have a wig cap, simply cut the foot off of an old pair of panyhose and use it to cover your hair. This will help to hold your hair down and keep your wig secure however if you wish to skip this step, that is fine.

Take your wig and align the front with the front of your forehead. Using both of your hands, stretch the cap open and place the wig on your head starting in the front and pull the back down. If you need to make any minor adjustments, just gently pull on the wig to make sure it is on properly.

Once it is in it’s place, determine how much lace you will want to leave around the hairline. Remove the wig and cut the extra lace off. Again, place the wig on your head and make sure it is on properly. Make any final adjustments before applying the adhesive.

At the very center of your forehead, flip a 2″ piece of the lace up and apply the adhesive to the under portion of the lace. Flip the lace back down and press is against your forehead. Using the back side of a comb, press the lace onto your hairline as your slide the back of the comb down against the lace.

Allow the adhesive to properly dry and then take the next 2″ section and do the same thing until the entire front is adhered. Style the hair as usual.

Note: Some clients prefer to not use an adhesive on their lace wigs. You can attach a comb pin to the front of the lace and secure it to your hair or you can braid a track around the front of your hair and sew the lace to the track.
