There are basically two ways to apply a lace front wig. One makes use of liquid adhesives and the other of double sided tapes. When it comes to using the liquid adhesive, you need to place the wig on your head first. Gather all the hair of the wig and pin it up front so you don’t attach them to your forehead by mistake. Add a little adhesive on the lace front and press down on it. You also need to make sure your real hair doesn’t get in the way. It will take around five seconds to dry and stick, then you can move on to the next part to apply adhesive. Repeat the process till the wig is firmly in place.
If you choose to use the double-sided tape to put on the wig, you need to cut three inch strips of the double-sided tape and lay the first piece on the area where the lace front connects. You need to attach the tape at the very edge of the lace on the hairline, in the front. Repeat this till you have all the tapes laid out in the appropriate places, all over, edge to edge. You need to make sure that there are no spaces in between the pieces of tapes. In this way, your lace front wig will look more natural. Once the tapes are all set, press down firmly on the wig and wait for about five to six seconds. The wig will be in place and you will have a stunning hairstyle in no time.
