How to put on a wig & trimming lace front wigs

For full heads of hair, please refer to our,
How to wear your hair under a wig before putting your wig on.

Hard front wigs
These come with a full wig construction cap and have hairs sewn onto wefts that form the cap. They come as fringeless and with fringes.
These are more popular for styles with bangs (fringes) as the bangs cover the hairline, and the fringe frames the face.

1. Hold the wig at the nape (where the straps are) with two hands.
2. Bend your head forward and pull the wig over your head.
3. Adjust the wig to your hairline and line up the ear tabs to your ears.
4. Secure using the adjustable straps.

NOTE: If you measure the circumference of your head, and have your size. Turn the wig inside-out, and place the measuring tape around the circumference. Where your size is on the tape will give you a guide on where to fix the straps. This can be easier than hooking them in while its on your head.

If using glues, tapes or wig grip bands, press the edges of the wig securely down.
Once you feel comfortable with the position of your wig, and it feels secure.
Mission accomplished.

Lace front wigs
Lace front wigs come with extra lace along the hairline. This is to achieve a realistic hairline, where strands of hair are sewn into the lace. There are 2 methods we advise when trimming lace fronts.

Method 1
1. Put the wig on your head. Lace fronts come with 2-3 hair grips sewn in the cap, secure
these just under your wig cap.
2. Line up the hairline to where your own would normally be.
3. Clip the wig hair gently back, so you can see the hairline clearly.
4. With small scissors (nail scissors are ideal) start at the centre of your forehead.
Cutting upwards vertically towards the hairline, and then trim horizontally across the
hairline. Trimming lace little by little to avoid accidentally cutting too much.

Method 2
Alternatively you can cut the lace without wearing it.
1. Closely trim the lace along the hairline of the wig.

NOTE: try the wig on in between trimming to see how it suits.

You can leave a line of lace at about half of a centimetre.
Or if you prefer, cut closer to the hairline, and trim around the ears.
You can cut into the lace with hair on, as each strand is sewn into each tiny hole of lace.
Just be careful to not cut into the wig construction cap. The lace covers a good area, and this would be hard to do, But always be careful as you trim.

If you have baby hairs along your hairline, with a tail comb. Run the tail end just under
the edge, and pull some hairs out from under the wig. Or an eyebrow brush can be used to brush out baby hairs.
NOTE: You can use makeup to blend in the hairline and parting to match your skin tone.

If using glues, tapes or wig grip bands, press the edges of the wig securely down.
You can tie a headband just around the head to keep the wig in place as the glue sets.
Once you feel comfortable with the position of your wig, and it feels secure.
Mission accomplished.
