Lace wigs have gained immense popularity in the world of hair extensions and hairpieces due to their natural-looking appearance and versatility. These wigs are designed with a delicate lace base that mimics the appearance of the scalp, allowing for a seamless blend with your natural hairline. At Best Wig Outlet, we offer a wide range of high-quality, brand-name wigs, and in this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the process of applying and securing your wig for a flawless and realistic look.

Step 1: Prepping Your Natural Hair

Before applying your lace wig, it is crucial to ensure that your natural hair is clean, dry, and free from any product buildup. Start by washing and conditioning your hair thoroughly, and then gently comb through to remove any tangles or knots. If your hair is long, consider braiding it or creating flat cornrows close to the scalp to create a smooth foundation for the wig.

Step 2: Prepping the Lace Wig

Begin by gently brushing or combing through your wig to remove any tangles. If necessary, use a wide-toothed comb or a wig brush designed for synthetic or human hair wigs. Take care not to pull or tug at the wig excessively, as this can cause damage. You can also use a wig stand or wig head to hold the wig in place during the application process.

Step 3: Applying Adhesive or Wig Tape

Depending on your personal preference and the type of wig you have, you can choose to use either adhesive or wig tape to secure the wig in place. Apply a thin layer of wig adhesive or wig tape along your hairline, making sure to leave a small gap between the adhesive and your natural hair. It is important to choose a high-quality adhesive or wig tape that is specifically designed for lace wigs to ensure a secure hold without causing any skin irritation.

Step 4: Positioning the Wig

Carefully place the wig on your head, starting from the front and working your way back. Align the wig's hairline with your natural hairline, ensuring that the wig is centered and symmetrical on your head. Gently press down on the lace to secure it to the adhesive or wig tape, starting from the front and working your way towards the back. Take your time to adjust and position the wig until you are satisfied with the fit and appearance.

Step 5: Blending with Your Natural Hair

To achieve a seamless blend between the wig and your natural hair, gently comb or brush the hair of the wig, starting from the roots and working your way down. You can also use a flat iron or curling iron to style the wig's hair and blend it with your natural hair texture. For a more natural look, consider leaving out a few strands of your natural hair along the hairline and blending them with the wig's hair.

Step 6: Styling and Finishing Touches

Once the wig is securely in place and blended with your natural hair, you can style it as desired. You can create various hairstyles, such as updos, curls, or sleek straight looks, using heat styling tools or hair accessories. Take care to avoid excessive heat or tension on the lace area to prevent any damage.
