2.How To Customize Your Real Hair Lace Front Wig
Step 1: Place The Wig
Place your lace wig on your mannequin head and make sure it is nice and secure with your T-Pins.
Step 2: Pluck The Lace
Plucking is the process of using a tweezer to pluck out excess hairs around the frontal to make it less bulky. Part the hair on your lace front wig in two sections and take your fave tweezers and start to pluck the hairline towards you in order to get a more natural look.
Step 3: Apply Bleach Mixture
Unless you've ordered a pre-bleached lace front, you're going to have to bleach the knots. Since each hair strand is hand-tied into the lace base, there are visible knots at the end of each strand which looks like little black dots along with your lace. Bleaching your frontal masks the black knots, and makes your hairline look more natural.
Take your bleach, developer, mixing bowl and mixing brush, and begin stirring the mixture until it reaches a pasty texture that isn't too loose (so it won't bleed onto the hair).
Step 4: Bleach Knots On The Lace
Turn your lace wig inside out and pin it down to your foam head and begin by bleaching the knots along the hairline. Put the shower cap on top and leave the bleach to lighten for 15 min. Then, wash out bleach with a neutralizing shampoo.
Step 5: Cut The Lace
Cut the lace along the hairline and ears.
Step 6: Protect The Wig Hair From Heat Damage
Secure your wig onto your mannequin head with your t-pins. Use a dime-sized amount of heat protection and disperse it throughout the hair.
Step 7: Curl The Hair As You Like
Separate the hair into different sections with your comb, and clip the excess hair out of your way using your alligator clips. Then take your wand curler and begin to curl different sections of the hair to your liking.
Step 8: Seal The Hair With Spray
Seal the hair with your favorite alcohol-free hair spray.
Step 9: Create Your Own Part
All lace wigs were not created equal. Some come with a pre-made part down the middle, to the side, with multiple parts, or with no parting at all (also known as a "free part"). With the free part lace front wig in particular (Beautyforever lace wig give you the freedom to freely part your hair), you'll get to choose where you want your part to lay and create it. You can do this before you create the full wig or after. Just play around with the parting, create a fun hairstyle or keep it down for a more sophisticated and trendy look.
Step 10: Create Natural Edges
One of the main complaints from newbie lace front wig wearers is the unnatural hairline. No one's hairline is full from ear to ear, and it'll be the first indicator that you're wearing a wig. Adjust your lace front wig accordingly. Don't forget the baby hairs! For this step separate a small section of the hair from the hairline that you want to use as baby hairs. Use a razor to cut the hair down until the hair is at your desired baby hair length. How long you want them to be is really up to you, some even resort to not creating baby hairs at all. Using a wig head lay down the baby hairs as you would on your head using mousse.
