How to Put on a Lace Front Wig in Two Different Ways
Lace Front Wigs are the go-to option for anyone who wants to look naturally glamorous without spending a fortune on a wig. Lace Front Wigs come in a variety of colors and styles. You won't need to worry about how you'll look for formal events, everyday activities, or even when you're just relaxing on the couch thanks to a lace front wig installation that's done right.
Regrettably, when people get their brand new lace front home, they are frequently perplexed about how to apply it. A lace front wig can be attached to your head with or without the use of glue, depending on your preference. In this piece, we'll walk you through the process of putting on a lace front wig using both of these different techniques. Let's not waste any time and dive right in!
Prepare Your Hair for the Lace Front Wig Installation by Flattening It.
No one should ever skip the step of making their natural hair lay flat in order to have a successful installation of a lace front wig. Because if you apply a lace wig to unprepped hair, the unit may sit too high on your head and give the appearance of a bald spot. This will not only make your look look terrible, but it will also expose the fact that you are wearing a wig.
There are three primary methods that are utilized most frequently when preparing your hair for the installation of a lace front wig.
Make cornrows with your hair.
Putting your natural hair in cornrows is among the most common forms of preparation for natural hair. There are many different options for parting patterns to choose from, but "straight backs" is the one that is utilized the most frequently, regardless of whether the hair is short or long.
The only thing you need to do is section your hair into seven or more straight-back sections, and then cornrow each section so that it leads back to the back of your head. Bobby pins can be used to fasten the finished braids to the back of your head after you have gathered the loose ends of the braids together. Because of this, they won't be able to unravel.
If you braid your hair down, you can prevent it from getting tangled up and your lace front wig will lay more smoothly and flatly as a result.
Put your hair behind your ears.
Don't worry about it if you're not very good at braiding. You can easily slick your hair back with some gel or holding spray if it isn't very long or thick and your hair isn't too thick. Simply apply gel to the hair that surrounds your edges, and then brush your hair backwards with a brush that has boar bristle bristles. Make a low ponytail with your hair that has been slicked back, and use bobby pins to secure the ends of the ponytail to the back of your head. When you are ready to put on your lace front wig, the next step is to put on a nylon wig cap, which will help keep your natural hair in place while you are wearing the wig.
If your hair is thin, you can plait it (braid it) into a couple of three-strand braids and then secure them to the top of your head with pins. After you are finished, secure your hair in place by applying a wig cap.
Note: Before you attempt any of the flattening methods described above, make sure that your hair has been properly shampooed, conditioned, and moisturized, and that it is completely dry.
After you have prepared your own natural hair, you can move on to the next step of learning how to put in a lace front wig.
Putting Glue on a Lace Front Wig While Wearing It
Using wig glue is the most effective method for putting on a lace front wig. You won't have to worry about your lace wig coming loose even if you engage in strenuous activity, experience high winds, or pull it off by accident because the glue will firmly secure the lace and keep it in place. It's possible to get up to six weeks of wear out of a wig, but it all depends on the glue you use. When you use got2b glued spray, your wig will remain in place for up to seven days.
