How To Wear Lace Front Wig

How To Wear Lace Front Wig

1. Skin Test

Prepare work: When you want to wear a lace front wig, you first need to do a skin test. The skin test will determine if you are allergic to the chemicals used in the glue or tape that will leave the wig on your head.

To do this, you need to apply a small amount of adhesive to the back of your hand. Then keep an eye for 24 hours.

You will be looking for any redness or inflammation. If your skin is not affected, you can wear a wig safely. If you do feel red, you will want to choose anti-allergic tape or glue.

2. Flatten your own hair

Prepare work: Flatten Your Hair--You can braid short hair into corn rows or mold it against your head using gel and bobby pins. For long hair, first tie your hair in a low ponytail. Then wrap your ponytail into a flat bun and secure it with pins.

It is important to accommodate all hair. You don't want any loose things to poke out. Also, make sure the hat covers the hairline!

Note: It is worth noting that if you are short hair, you can skip the entire step altogether.

3. Protect you skin

Clean the skin at the hairline with a cotton ball moistened with isotropic alcohol to remove body oil and prevent the wig from sticking.

At the same time, apply the scalp protective film with the hairline. This is a must if you are sensitive skin.

4. Try on the wig

Once you have your hair and skin ready, you will need to try on it to make sure your wig is properly seated.

To do this, you need to align the wig with the natural hairline. You can adjust the wig. This is when you want to adjust all the straps that a wig might have.

5. Apply the adhesive

Use glue/adhesive: Apply your favorite edge control product or gel to lay down your edges to perfection with your fingers.

Use wigs tape: Align the tape with the hairline and apply the adhesive to the skin. Make sure there are no gaps between the tape segments. Use a mirror to create a uniform hairline. Remove the back of the tape.

6. Attach the wig

Once the adhesive is placed, you will need to carefully wear the wig again. Carefully adjust the edges of the wig so that the hair of the wig naturally falls on your head, even flush with your natural hairline.

7. Trim the lace on the lace front wig

Trim the lace with sharp scissors or pink scissors so that only 1/8 of an inch is left. You only need to do this the first time you wear a new wig.

8. Style your wig

Pull down the wig and adjust as needed. Flat ironing can help smooth the top and imitate your hair. Press the wig edge down for five seconds to stick it to the skin. Design the wig in the style you want.

How To Make The Wig Look Real

Not everyone wants to stick to the natural brown hair that most human hair bundles and frontal leaves provide. To add fun to the matter, coloring the wig is another way to make it look natural. Therefore, choosing the right color for your skin tone is the first step in making the lace front wig look natural. Matching and getting the right color is related to how you paint. Before making a lace front wig, it is best to color the bundle and forehead first, but if it is already made, you can still successfully color it.

Wear gloves when you do this, and apply the color before the lace front wig is firmly placed on the mannequin head to ensure it won't mess. After traversing and applying the hair dye, simply comb the hair with a wide-toothed comb to ensure even hair color.

Tips for How To Maintain Lace Wigs

1. Wash the hair system once or twice a month depending on the frequency of wearing. When using a shampoo system, it is recommended to use a weak acid shampoo. Using a conditioner and rinsing in warm water will make the wig with the clip look soft.

2. Avoid rubbing the trimmed wig hard, as this will increase the chance of hair falling off the wig. It is important not to comb or comb the hair when wet. Instead, the wig is shaped while drying. This helps to stay longer.
