Top 10 Lace Wig Tips


1.) When applying your lace wig dont apply it to far down on your forehead. It will look unnatural. Align with your natural hairline or behind your natural hairline.

2.) If using glue please allow the glue to become tacky or stickey before applying the wig. This will allow the wig to hold better and longer.

3.) If using tape or glue and tape together, apply the tape to the wig instead of your hairline. This will help the wig stick better in the back as well as make it easier to apply the wig.

4.) Always clean your hairline before applying the wig. You want to remove dirt makeup sweat and oil so the wig will stick better.

5.) Use the baby hair to help create a more natural look. Sometimes the baby hair is really long like bangs so you may want to use a razor comb and thin out the baby hair to make it shorter so its more natural looking. About 1-2 inches is a good length.

6.) Stretch the lifespan of your lace wig by adding extra densitywhen ordering. When adding extra density always get it added to the back and middle of the wig. Keep the front of the wig natural looking not to bulky.

7.) If you can afford to buy virgin hair please do. Standard remy is ok but Virgin is the best. When you’re spending hundreds of dollars on a wig you want something thats going to last and save you money in the long run. Virgin has has little to no tangling shedding or matting.

8.) Clipless curling irons, flexi rods, and rollersets are the best way to curl lace wigs for long lasting curls.

9.) Air drying your lace wig or any remy or virgin hair is the best option for longevity and manageability.

10.) Always keep your remy/virgin hair moisturized with a light oil or mist.

Full Lace Wig Application Tip


For a more secure hold,  apply supertape to the perimeter of your wig before applying it. Applying the tape to the wig instead of your hairline will result in a longer stronger hold.  Using glue and tape together is recommended. Apply the glue to your hairline and apply the tape to the wig.  Should remain bonded for 2 weeks or more. After attaching the wig, apply low heat using a handheld blow dryer to the perimeter of your head where the wig is applied to help set the bond.

Tips for Using Liquid Adhesives


Below, a list of helpful tips to help you achieve the strongest and most secure bond possible.

When applying the liquid adhesive, only use thin, even coats.
If you’re using a brush, paint in both directions – horizontal and vertical.
If more adhesive is desired use thin multiple coats, but make sure the previous coat is dry before applying the next coat.
Never try to apply liquid bond directly to a lace system. Instead, apply it on your scalp and place the unit on your head.
Always clean and prepare your scalp properly before attaching your full lace wig..

After showering or working out, the bond might seem like it is weakening, which is expected, then even if your hair system is still attached securely, the bond may have softened a bit, due to extra heat and moisture.
Do not touch the unit then, because as your body cools, the bond will harden again.

Airborne dust will attach itself to the toupee adhesive in the front edge of lace units and may become visible over time. Immediately after a shower is the easiest time to clean this area because the hairpiece adhesive is pliable. Spray a liberal amount of Adjust-a-Bond on the tip of a double folded tissue. Hold your hair back with one hand and wipe the edge of the lace using the saturated tissue with the other hand.
This trick will help keep your lace front edge invisible at all times.

Natural Looking Parts- Optional


The only supplies you will need is transparent bandage tape, foundation powder brush, and powder foundation.. Here are the steps:

 
Optional) Apply your wig cap
1.Dip your powder brush into your shade of foundation. (You can also use your finger, or q-tips). I found that using the foundation powder brush was much easier, and less messy.
2. Lightly brush the back of the bandage tape (Not the sticky side).
3. Tear or cut the tape, and apply to the inside of the lf cap, where the part will be. Apply the tape about 1/4″ away from the hairline (just behind the baby hairs). Do not apply the tape directly on the edge of the lace.
4. Apply the wig , and style as usual.
You should have a fantastic looking part, that looks totally natural, that you wont have to worry about touching up until it’s time to remove your lf. The tape is not shiny, so you won’t have to worry about that

Help With Free-Style Parting


When a lace unit has freestyle parting you are able to comb the hair in any direction you desire. When you receive your wig or hairpiece most of  the time all the hair is flowing straight back. If you desire a part on the right side or in the middle or say you want to make a bang… many people have trouble doing this because the hair does not seem to flow in the direction they would like.  Not all wigs have this problem but if you encounter this problem here is the solution. Wet the hair! Use a spray bottle if the wig is attached to your head or if the wig isnt attached,  you can use the faucet. After wetting the hair– (do not have it to soak it)…. comb the hair in the direction you want it to flow.  Let the hair dry before styling or cutting bangs.
