If you have purchased a new lace front wig and still don't know how to properly apply it, continue reading to find out how.
There are two ways to apply your lace front wig: with the use of double-sided tape and using liquid adhesives to keep the wig in place. Some retailers sell adhesives together with the lace front wig so you should have no problem choosing which one will work well with the wig. If no adhesive is sold with the lace front wig then choose either of the two adhesives but make sure that the product you choose has been designed specifically for this purpose.
When using liquid adhesive, first place the lace front wig on top of your head. Pin back the wig hair in front so that you don't end up gluing them on your forehead. Apply a very thin layer of adhesive on a small part of the lace front. Make sure to also get your real hair out of the way. You can choose to cut the baby hair or keep it out of the wig; it depends on the look you are going for. Press down the lace front wig on the part where you applied the adhesive. With a good adhesive, it should only take you about 5 seconds to press it down. After that part of the lace front wig is firmly in place, move on to the next section. To make the application easier, apply the adhesive to an inch of hair each time until you have applied adhesive and pressed on the wig from edge to edge.
When using a double-sided tape, cut the tape into 3-inch strips. The tape should be around 3.8 inches wide. Take the first strip and lay it on the patch area where the lace front connects to it. Make sure you attach the tape on the front hairline at the edge of the lace. Place the other strips of tape on the edge of the lace until you have laid down the tapes on the entire front side of the wig from edge to edge. Make sure that there are no spaces between the tapes. This should help keep the wig in place and also provide a natural looking hairline.
