How to wear a lace front wig is a normal question coming up to any person when they decide to buy one for themselves. While there are so many different methods out there, no one can stick to a particular method. Therefore, it’s better to try some ways and determine which one suits you the best. Below are some of the most common methods.
Wearing a lace front wig with glue
Firstly, make sure that your hair and scalp are clean and oil-free. Then, use a brush to evenly apply a thin coat of lace front glue to your front hairline. Once the glue dries, its color will disappear. At this point, we will attach the lace front wig to the area with glue by pressing and holding it for about 10 seconds. Remember not to stick your lace front wig if the glue is still white.
For the gluing method, selecting a suitable lace front wig glue for your skin type is important as it can help you avoid skin allergy in some cases.

Wig clips, combs, and elastic bands
Step 1: Hide your natural hair
You can either braid or pull your hair back. Make sure that your hair is flat and smooth. Then, secure the wig grip comfortably in place.
Step 2: Wear the lace front wig
Instead of using glue, you can wear your lace front wig with clips or elastic bands. Today, lace front wigs often attached with some clips or combs inside. You will just need to put your lace front wig carefully on your head. Then, use the clips or combs to secure your wig.
In case your wig is a little bigger than your head, you can use elastic bands to make it fit your head. If your wig does not come with an elastic band, you can sew it horizontally across the back of the wig in your nape area.
Step 3: Pull out some baby hair to make your wig look more natural. And boom! Guess who is in front of the mirror now?
Wig grip band
Step 1: Braid or tie your bio hair back. If you have long and medium hair, you can make braids or put your hair into a ponytail. But if your hair is short, you can use some clips to pin it down on the back of your head.
Step 2: Put the grip band around the middle of your forehead. Then, secure the grip band by connecting the Velcro ends at the back of your head. The Velcro ends can help you adjust the band to perfectly fit your hair. Yet, make sure you don’t grip it too tight on your head. After that, pull the band back so that it lies at the front of your head, just behind the hairline. The grip band should later grip your hair or skin on one side, and the other side gripping your wig.
Step 3: Place your human hair wig into your head, above the grip band. Next, adjust the wig by gently pulling the hair into the position you want. Make sure you don’t pull your wig back too far. It should lie in front of the grip band. At this point, if you pull your wig backward, it will not come off as the grip band is holding the wig tightly. To remove your wig, you should lift the sides of the wig up first.
Step 1: If you have long and medium hair, the most effective way to hide all the hair under the wig cap is to braid it and then circle the braids around your head. If you have quite a lot of baby hair, it’s better to apply some gel to the strands to keep them in place before you make the braids.
Step 2: Put your wig cap in line with your hairline and pull it over your head’s back and to your neck’s nape. Push the edges behind each ear.
Step 3: Place the lace front wig on your head. You can use some bobby pins to keep the cap and wig in place.
