Putting on a full lace wig by yourself can be quite challenging for beginners. It's recommended to entrust this task to a professional hairstylist. However, if you really want to do it on your own, please carefully read the following steps and seek out video tutorials on YouTube to assist you in completing this task.
Prepare Your Hair: If you have long hair, braid it or lay it flat against your scalp for a smooth base for the wig. For short hair, use a hair net to secure your hair. Since a full lace wig covers the entire head, it's essential to neatly arrange your hair for a flat fit.
Wear a Hair Net: Regardless of hair length, wearing a hair net is recommended. Pull the net from your forehead to the back, covering all your hair, to help secure the wig in place.
Test Wig Placement: Before gluing or securing, place the wig on your head and adjust it to the right position. Make sure the wig's front aligns with your natural hairline.
Clean Your Skin: Before attaching the wig to your skin, clean your forehead with an alcohol pad to remove oils and dirt.
Apply Wig Adhesive or Double-Sided Tape: Apply a thin layer of special wig adhesive along the lace edges of the wig or use double-sided tape.
Place the Wig Precisely: Gently place the wig on your head, starting from the forehead, ensuring all edges are snug against your scalp.
Adjust and Secure: After the wig adhesive dries a bit, gently press down the edges of the wig to ensure it firmly sticks to your skin. Use a comb and your fingers to adjust the wig so it's evenly distributed over your head.
Trim the Lace: If necessary, trim any excess lace, but be careful not to cut into the hairline.
Final Styling: Use suitable styling tools to style the wig, making it look more natural.
Remember, everyone's head shape and preferences are different, so it might take some practice and adjustments to find the method that suits you best. If you find it challenging at first, consider seeking help from a professional hairstylist for proper guidance and advice.
