The installation of lace frontal wigs can be frightening for someone who is unfamiliar with wigs or is new to human hair wigs. Here are some pointers on how to properly install a human hair wig. So that you can confidently wear your new wig.
1. Wig cap: keep hair nice and neat underneath
You can use a wig cap to keep the hair behind the lace front wig clean and slide it back as much as possible when you install it.
2. Lace cut by ears
Make sure you trim the additional bits of lace away from the ear area because you want it to fit snugly around your ear and not sit on top of it when you're ready to lay it. Make sure you don't cut too high up, so you can see all of your edges from ear to under and don't keep it on too much because it will be uncomfortable.
3. Apply Wig Glue
When applying glue, you can divide it into three sections: the middle and two sides. This will make it easier to wait for the glue to dry and will also offer you a clearer forehead. Don't press the glue too deeply into the skin; glue is tenacious, and if you apply it too thickly, it will turn white.
4. Cut lace close to the hairline
Make sure your wig is aligned with your natural hairline. Then, at the front and back, cut away any excess lace. Cut the frontal sides to match the hairline, and the ear tabs to match the hairline. Avoid cutting it too high or too low.
5. Comb out hairs for baby hair look
When it comes to installing the wig, this is a step that every one may take; some people may not like baby hair, but it will be necessary if you want your wig to look more natural.
6. Flatten down roots
You can use a curling iron or a hot comb to flatten your scalp around the root of the wig if you think it's too high.
7. Wig style
Finally, you can style your hair to your liking.
