6 Things You Need To Know About Lace Wigs

Lace wigs are the perfect way to protect your natural hair while still looking amazing. We've already shared with you the difference between 360, lace front, and full lace wigs. In this blog post we're going to share how to lay your wig so that it blends in effortlessly!


Lay your hair flat
One way to get your hair flat under the wig is to braid your hair in 6-8 cornrows going straight back. Another easier way is to part your hair all the way down the middle into two sections. Braid those sections so that you have 2 regular braids. If your hair is long, simply crisscross the braids so that they lay flat on both sides. 

Wig caps

Wig caps are completely optional under a lace wig. Some people like the cap because it creates an additional barrier between their hair and the wig. Other people simply put the wig over their hair without a cap. It's completely up to you. 
Cutting the lace
We get a lot of questions on how to cut the lace. The best way to cut the lace is to put the wig on, and pull it down so that hairline of the wig is in front of your natural hairline. Take your scissors and cut along the lace so that it matches your natural hairline.

Parting the wig
Lace front, full lace and 360 wigs can all be parted in any direction you'd like. The lace mimics the look of a natural scalp. Your new wig may not lay flat at first. However, you can use a hot comb so that the hair stays parted in the direction that you like. You can also use a scarf to tie the wig down so that the part stays in place. 

Styling the baby hairs
All of our wigs come with baby hairs to ensure a natural look. You can gel them down just like you would gel down your natural baby hair. 

Securing the wig
The wig comes in a universal size. The adjustable strap allows you to customize the fit of the wig to secure it on your head. You can also use an adhesive like gel to apply it slightly in front of your natural hairline. We do not recommend applying any king of gel or adhesive directly to your hairline as this may cause damage. Once the gel gets tacky, press the front of your wig onto the gel to secure it. You can also use a blow dryer to dry the gel faster.
