How to Put On A Lace Front Wig?

Putting on a lace front wig may seem daunting at first, but with the right steps, you can get a natural and secure fit. Below is a step-by-step guide:

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

If you are a wig beginner, then before you start wearing a front lace wig, you need to have all the tools and products you need to help you get a natural look.

Lace front wig

◆ Wig cap


Wig adhesive or tape

Makeup brush or sponge

Foundation or concealer

Hair clips


Hair gel or mousse (optional)

Step 2: Prepare Your Natural Hair

To start, prepare your natural hair by washing and conditioning it to remove any oils or product residue. This helps the wig adhesive stick properly. Next, braid your hair into cornrows or lay it flat against your head to create a smooth base for the wig. Secure your hair with a wig cap, ensuring all strands are tucked in.

Step 3: Trim the Lace On the Wig

Place the wig on your head and adjust it to align with your natural hairline. Use scissors to cut the lace along your hairline carefully. Leave about a quarter inch of lace to ensure the wig is secure. Pluck a few hairs from your hairline to create a more natural look.

Step 4: Applying Wig Glue

Spread a thin layer of wig glue or adhesive along your hairline. Wait a few minutes for the adhesive to become sticky. Apply the adhesive in sections rather than all at once for a firmer hold.

Step 5: Position the Wig

Position the wig carefully on your head, beginning at the front. Press the lace into the adhesive, ensuring it lines up with your natural hairline. Apply gentle pressure to the lace using a comb to make a firm hold.

Step 6: Secure the Wig

Utilize bobby pins or wig clips to hold the sides and back of the wig in place. Adjust the band inside the wig cap for a snug fit. If needed, more adhesive can be applied to the sides and back for added security.

Step 7: Blend the Lace

If you feel the lace looks less natural, you can use a makeup brush or sponge to blend it with your skin tone by applying foundation or concealer along the lace.

Step 7: Style Your Wig

In case you desire a distinctive look, you can style your wig using a comb, hairspray, or mousse as needed. Also, you can create baby hairs along the hairline for a more natural look.

How to Put On A Glueless Wig?

Glueless wigs are a great option for those who want to avoid the hassle and burden of using adhesives. UNice Hair carries a wide selection of glueless wigs, such as pre-everything wigs, put-on-and-go wigs, v-part wigs, u-part wigs, and more, to suit everyone's needs. Below are detailed instructions on how to wear gel-free wig

Prepare Your Hair: Braid your hair and stick it flat against your head or put on a wig cap. This works to keep your own hair in place and provides a smooth surface for the wig to sit on.

Place the Wig: Grab the front of the wig and place it on your head so that the hairline of the wig lines up with your natural hairline. You may feel a little big at first, but that's okay!

Secure the Wig: Most glueless wigs have adjustable straps inside the cap. Use these straps to make sure the wig is securely worn. Some wigs also have combs or clips inside. Attach them to your natural hair or wig cap for extra security.

Style the Wig: Once secured, style the wig to your liking. You can part the hair, add volume, or use a heat styling tool.
