Clearly with this level of realism choosing a lace front wig is an easy decision. The challenge lies with putting it on properly so you achieve a natural looking hairstyle all day long. Once you learn a few tricks and techniques you will be able to successfully apply your wig without the assistance of anyone else.
One of the keys to the successful positioning of your wig and making sure it stays in the correct place all day regardless of temperature and perspiration is finding the adhesive that suits your skin the best. The last thing you want is for your wig to slip out of place at an inopportune moment. Most people find the best option is especially designed adhesive or alternatively double sided tape. This will hold the wig in place very well however if you don’t use the correct type you may run into trouble trying to get it off your scalp before retiring to bed. Additionally it could cause you discomfort with itching and chafing. The lesson here is to ensure you purchase adhesives specifically designed for adhering works and that they are also of a high quality. This way your wig will look great, no one will know the adhesive is there, and you won’t run into any mishaps.
If you choose to use the glue to secure your wig, the best approach is to lift the edge of the wig and pull it back approximately 1 inch. Then apply the adhesive and even fashion to get the best results. Make sure you apply the adhesive directly onto the wig as this will allow it to blend in with the cap of the wig. Once it is in place on your head it gives the appearance of the hair growing naturally from your head rather than the fact that you are wearing a wig. That of course, is what you are aiming for.
A slightly trickier option is using double sided sticky tape, however once you are familiar with the process and have had some practice you will find this also to be quite simple. Cut the double sided adhesive tape into 3 inch strips. Place these on the tape strip of the wig starting in the front hairline. Second, continue to place the strips along the front pressing it onto your scalp until you have the front properly secured. As the front hairline is the most seen part of your head, it’s essential you start fitting it along the front first to get a natural look. Once you have the front of the wig well secured, continue around the rest of your head until you feel comfortable it won’t move.
With practice, the process of cutting and securing the tape will become very natural and easy. As mentioned above, the easiest approach is to get all the tape cut first as once you start applying the wig, you won’t be able to cut the tape (unless you have an extra pair of hands!).
