It allows you to style your hair however you want.



With the lace 360 wigs, you can easily style any type of hairstyle, including a ponytail, braids, or a cute topknot. A lace frontal human hair wig looks just like your own hair, but with a sheer lace attached at its top to blend in with your face easily. Many types of Wigs made from lace are very popular because of their ability to look like your own hair and they would cost between 60 - 500 dollars, depending on the quality of the wig, hair type(body or straight hair), and length.

With a lace frontal wig without glue, you can change up your hair color without damaging your real hair and natural scalp.

While synthetic wigs may need to be glued to the scalp to achieve a natural appearance with a natural hairline, lace frontal wigs allow you to get a more natural look without damaging your hairline.

How To Wear A Wig For Beginners

One of the biggest concerns for wig wearers is whether others will notice they're wearing a wig and whether the actual donning of a wig might be difficult. Is it ready to go right out of the box? Will it fit my head shape and skin tone? How do you make certain it doesn't slip or hair loss? With our step-by-step instructions to help you affix your wig, we’ll show you how to look great and feel completely safe.

Depending on the type of wig you purchase, there are a number of options for how to style a lace front wig for beginners.

How To Wear A Lace Front Wig For Beginners

(Part 1) Getting ready for the wig

1. Test your skin first
    Do a skin test to identify whether you are allergic or sensitive scalp.

2. Make your hair Flatten 

Flat hair looks great when you wear wigs. To get the best results, flatten your hair. Start by tying your hair into a low ponytail. Wrap the ponytail around your head and secure it with bobbies. If you have longer hair, start at the back of your head and pull the hair forward until it forms a tight bun. Secure the bun with bobby pins. Let any gel or hairsprays dry before moving on to the next step.

3. Put on a wig cap 
Elastic bandages are thin strips of cloth made of cotton or nylon that stretch when pulled tight. You may need two or three layers of bandages depending on the size of your head. Pull each layer tightly across your scalp until it fits snugly against your skull. Then, tie the ends together at the back of your head.

Make sure all of your hair go through the cap. Even if there is just a small amount of hair left, it should still fit inside the cap.

4. Prepare your skin
Skin preparation is important. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser, then blot it dry with a clean towel. After that, use a cotton ball dipped in rubbing alcohol to wipe away any oil from your hairline. This will help you get rid of the excess oils on your face. You can use a scalp-protecting product if you have sensitive skin. Let the serum dry completely before applying it.

(Part 2) Putting on the wig

1. Test fit of the wig

 Before applying any adhesives, make sure the wig fits correctly. Place the wig on your head, then line the wig hairline up with your own natural hairline. If the wig has tightening straps on the inside, then you may need to adjust them for a good fit. If the wig doesn't fit and there aren't any tightening straps, contact them for help. 
If you can feel a strong band of pressure around your head, the wig is too small. Loosen the straps a bit. If the wig slides around when your move your head, Tighten the straps further.

2. Trim the lace
Once your wig fits correctly, you need to trim its lace by a pair of scissors. Pull your hair back from your face using hair clips. Using sharp pinking shears (or any type of scissors), trim off the excess lace (extra lace) along your natural hairline. Leave about 1/8 inch of lace. You should only need to do this the first time you wear this wig.

3. Remove the wig and wet

Take off the wig and put it aside. Remove the wig carefully, leaving all the clips intact, and place it on a clean flat surface so that it doesn't get dirty. Arrange the wig in such a way that it’s easier to see where the hairline and neck go. If you need to loosen any straps to remove the wig, then the wig is too tight.

4. Apply wig tape
Use a wig cap. Cut six to ten pieces of tape. Next, stick the small pieces of tape to your skin by pressing the sticky side onto your skin. Use a mirror to create an even hairline. After applying the tape, remove the thick foam pad to expose the other side of the adhesive tape. Make sure all of the pieces touch. If not, you may have loose hairs in your hairline.

5. Use a liquid adhesive 

You can use liquid lace glue instead if you don't want to use wig tape (Don't use lash glue). You should use a clean makeup brush to carefully apply an even layer of adhesive along your entire hairline. Depending on the type of adhesive or wig glue used, you may need to let the glue dry for a few minutes before applying the wig.

If you use a soft bond, you can apply the glue immediately. If you use a hard bond, you can apply it right away.

6. Apply the wig
Pull the wig on carefully. Brush the hair into cornrows and keep the stray hairs off the lace. Make sure the edges of the wig line up with the hairline. Next, adjust the length of the wig so that the bottom falls naturally over your hair. Pressing the lace into the adhesive is the last step before applying the wig. Once you press the lace into adhesive, it’s almost impossible to remove. Make sure that the wig is properly aligned before putting it on.

7. Style your hair

If your wig is made of pure human hair, then you need to use special brushes, hot styling tools, and hair products. If your wig is made from synthetic material, please don't use regular brushes or hot styling tools. Instead, use a wide-toothed comb or brush to adjust your hair.

(Part 3) Maintaining your wig

1. Take off your wig

Before removing any adhesives or tapes, use a commercial wig adhesive removers or regular baby oil to remove layer of glue. To remove the adhesive from the hairline, rub the remover against the adhesive. Keep rubbing gently until the lace loosens up from your scalp. Do not tug at it. You will damage the wig.

2. Wash the wig regularly
It depends on the manufacturer's recommendations. Your wig will need to be cleaned after 8 to 12 wearing times. Brush any tangles out of the wig first. After shampooing and conditioning the wig, put it in a sink filled with hot water. Let it dry completely before brushing it or combing it. This will help wig last for months rather than weeks. Human hair can be washed with normal shampoo and conditioner. Synthetic wigs require special shampoos and conditioners.

3. Store the wig properly

Proper storage will extend the life of the wig When your wig isn't in use, keep it on a wig stand or wig head. Before storing the wig, make sure it is completely free of any adhesive or tape.

Tips About How To Style A Lace Front Wig For Beginners

A mannequin head and blow dryer are needed. Before I do anything, find a mannequin head and then use double-sided tape and try on my wig and see how it looks on my head. Wigs come in one size fits all, so they're not going to fit perfectly on every head. However, the way the cap fits will determine how you want your hair braided underneath the cap. Try to get as much of your natural hair into the space between your head and your cap as possible. Don't pin your natural hair(strands of hair) into a spot where the wig already is tight. Adjust the elastic bands or adjustable strap at the back if needed.

How To Comb the baby hairs As a Tiro

If your wig has natural baby hairs, be careful not to cut those off. Combining the baby hairs of the wigs gives the illusion of the hair actually growing from your own head. Use a tiny to brush them forward. Use your blow dryer to dry the glue a bit and make it tacky. If I wear a wig with dark roots and I want to blend them in with my own hair, I like to use wig brushes to brush some of my own hair into the mix.



Gentle Removal Methods Are Necessary For A Newbie

Speaking of removal, don't remove your wig when you are rushed. Patience is key. Use a designated adhesive tape removal tool for lace frontal wigs Apply enough gentle cleanser to soften the liquid adhesive and then slowly peel the wig off. If you feel any discomfort, apply more remover, and wait for 10-20 minutes before trying again Don't rush through the process; Take your time to avoid damaging yourself. After you've removed the wig, don't forget the excess glue(liquid adhesive) from the lace. If you need to remove the makeup from your face, you can use the same designated makeup remover and some diluted rubbing alcohol. Then, you can shampoo and condition your hair.

A Reminder On How To Put A Wig On For Beginners

While knowing how to properly wear a wig up can help you feel glamorous and make everyday styling a breeze, don’t rely solely on them. Wigs are accessories; Your hair is uniquely you. Treat your hair well, and a wig will remain an enhancement, not a substitute, for the real thing.
