You’re looking for what works to get you the most natural looking lace wig install.
Aren’t we all?
Obviously, none of us want our protective style to look too “wiggy” or fake especially, when it comes to that hairline ..! No matter how well made a lace wig hairline is, it can only look natural to a certain extent with close inspection and yes I have to admit that it’s a thin line between success and a failed wig slay.
It’s for this reason ladies, that you and I have figured out that applying the lace slightly behind our own hairline gives us the assurance of a truly natural and head-turning look.
Simply put, THAT’S WHAT WE WANT.
So, let’s take a close look at how to install your lace wig behind your hairline below…
Braid or tie your own hair leaving out half an inch (or an inch) of your own hair line. At night, use flexible rods ( as seen above) to keep your leave out soft and wavy. This is a good way to limit the amount of heat you have to apply to your hair.
Remember to moisturize your scalp and hair first to nourish your hair throughout the day.
Place your wig cap over your hair. Pull your lace wig over the cap but stop right behind your leave out.
(This part is optional but I highly recommend it) Sew in an elastic band from one temple of the lace wig to the other. This step will ensure the lace wig lays flat and it also ensures the lace will blend in with your scalp when parted. Click here for a full Elastic Band Method tutorial.
Use bobby pins to secure your lace wig.
Gently move around your lace wig to best line up your lace wig part to your leave out part here as you secure it.
Use the comb to define your part.
Using your old mascara, tint any lace that’s showing on either side of the part.
Grab your concealer or light make-up palette and dab a little where the lace begins at the leave out to begin blending in with your scalp.
The result? A seamless natural looking scalp…
Smooth down your edges with edge tamer and style!
