Whether you have lost your hair due to an illness or you are looking for a way to easily change your hairstyle, a lace wig can be the perfect option. However, applying a wig so it looks like your natural hair can be a challenge. With these tips, you can achieve the beauty you are looking for quickly and easily every time.
Clean Your Skin
Your skin has natural oils that can affect the fit of your wig. Before you apply your wig, use rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt or oil. This is especially necessary if you will be using glue to secure the edges of the wig. It is also important to remove any old glue from the area because new adhesive will not bond to it properly.
A lace wig is designed to fit securely to your head without the need for adhesives or other connections. However, if you don’t have any hair, it may be best to glue the wig down to ensure it stays in place. The right fit will also depend upon buying the proper size. If you find the wig fits too loosely, you can use clips at the back to adjust it for a snug, comfortable fit.
Trim the Lace Edges Smoothly
When you put on your lace wig for the first time, it may not give you the exact look you want. These wigs are designed for use with scissors to trim the edges. This will help create the right hairline for your face and eliminate the need to find a wig that fits as is. The look is all in your hands. As you make your cuts, it is important to use smooth motions and avoid cutting jagged edges. Cut off only a small amount of lace at a time. You can always take more off but you can never replace any areas that have already been removed.
Taking off your wig is a fairly simple process. Placing the hair into a ponytail will give you easy access to the edges. Use a specially designed wig adhesive remover to gently separate the lace from your head. Once it has been removed, carefully wash the adhesive from your head and remove any excess glue from your wig. Keeping your hairpiece clean will ensure its beauty lasts a long time.
Wearing wigs has become somewhat of a fashion trend. You don’t have to be losing your hair or bald to wear a lace wig. Today, many women are choosing this option to change their hairstyles quickly and easily. With the help of these tips, you can make the process of applying and removing your wig easier so you can enjoy wearing them more often.
