Step 2: Protect your skin

Use a cotton ball dampened with isopropyl alcohol to clean the skin by your hairline to remove body oils, which could prevent the wig adhesive from sticking properly. Meanwhile, apply a scalp protector to the skin by your hairline. It is extremely necessary if you have sensitive skin. 

Step 3: Put on a wig cap 

Put a wig cap on your head and then gently stretch the cap and hide all the hairline. Depending upon the wig cap, you might require to cut a hole for your ears. You can apply some adhesive to secure the wig cap on the head, which can prevent it from falling when you wear the kinky straight full lace wig. 

Step 4: Trim the lace on the full lace wig

Only when the first time you use your wig, do you need to trim the lace on thefull lace wigs. Of course, it does not need to be done if the lace has already been trimmed by the manufacturer.

To trim the lace, put the 360 full lace wig human hair on your head, and then use hair clips to fasten the wig hair back away from your scalp line. And use a pair of sharp scissors to trim any lace that sticks out past the wig hairline.


1. Cut small amounts of lace at a time to avoid accidentally cutting too much.

2. Be careful not to cut any of the wig hair.

3. Leave a little bit of lace sticking out past the wig hairline, but no more than 1 inch.

Step 5: Apply Adhesive

Take adhesive or gel with a small makeup brush or cosmetic stick to apply a thin layer to the entire hairline and the areas onto which the full lace 360 wigs will attach.

If using a soft bond adhesive, don't apply the full 360 lace wig immediately. Please use the cool air setting to blow-dry the adhesive until the glue has become tacky.

For a hard bond adhesive, the human hair full lace wig can be applied immediately, as this type of glue bonds immediately.

Step 6: Attach the Wig

First of all, line the wig part up as desired, place the front part of the wig on your forehead, and then use the wig combs to securely place the full lace HD wig on your hair. Keep in mind that it should not be too tight.

Use your fingers to smooth and firmly press the front edges of the lace against the glue, work around the hairline until it is attached around the entire hairline. Next, use a hairdryer to blow cold hair over the adhesive and let it dry for a while.

If possible, you can tie a scarf around your head and let it stay for around 10 minutes to ensure the lace is tightly secured with the adhesive.

Step 7: Style your wig

You can part the hair from the edges to give a natural look. Besides, you can also use a small rat-tail comb to gently pluck the baby hair along the perimeter of the full lace front wig and cut them down in your style to make it look realistic and appealing. In the end, don't forget to use your fingers to apply your favorite edge control product or gel to lay down your edges to perfection. 

More importantly, you can use a curling iron or flat iron to enhance the look.

Mesure 2: Install full lace wigs without glue

Recently, human hair lace front wigs have become widely available to everyone. Although we can apply adhesive to easily secure the wig on your head, it doesn't work on those people who are allergic to glue. Then we will teach you how to put on a full lace wig without glue.

Things You’ll Need to apply a full lace wig: 

Wig clips,

Weaving needle and thread;

Hair clamps;

Step 1: Turn your full lace wig inside out. Pull the hair on the wig into a ponytail or place a clamp around it so that it does not get into the way when you start to sew the wig clips onto the unit.

Step 2: Thread the weaving needle using a thread similar to the hair color on the wig to make the wig clips less noticeable.
Grab one of the wig clips and place the bottom of the clips at the bottom, the middle portion of the wig. Make sure the teeth on the clips are facing you.

Step 3: Insert your weaving needle underneath the lace wig and then through the hole on the clips. Move to the next hole and insert the clip through the hole and then back down through the wig. Repeat this procedure until you have sewn through every hole on each full lace wig clip.

Step 4: Place another wig clip around 3 inches away from the clip that you have just sewn onto the full lace wig. Repeat the same procedure above to attach the clip to the lace cap of the full lace wig.

Step 5: Turn the full lace wig to the right side about an inch above where your ear would be and attach another wig clip in this place. Repeat this same procedure for the left side of the wig. Do not attach any clips in the front of the wig, because it will show around your hairline and be noticeable.

Step 6: Flip the wig back into the right position and place it on your head. Insert the wig clips into your hair to secure the wig in place. Remove the hair clamp from the wig and style your wig as you like. This procedure is similar to attaching a lace front wig.


Most wigs will have elastic or Velcro straps in the back to help hold them in place. Tighten or loosen those straps as needed so the wig feels secure and comfortable on your head.

If you want to be able to wear your wig in a ponytail, consider purchasing two little tabs of adhesive tape to add to the area just in front of your ears. After all, this area will lift when using the "no tape," "no glue" method.
