Lace front wigs can lend a natural appearance. But a blunt hairline will ruin the look of a perfectly good lace front wig. Most lace front wigs come packaged with stock hairlines that look like they've been drawn with a ruler. To achieve more realistic results, it's best to tailor the hairline of your lace front wig to your face prior to application.

  1. 1

    Cut excess lace 1cm from hairline in an oblique, non-straight line.

  2. 2

    Pin the lace front wig to a wig head using two hair clips. Lift the hair on each side of wig, and slide in hair clips.

  3. 3

    Pull back hair with a hair clip. Not all of the hair needs to be pulled back. Just work in sections.

  4. 4

    Tweeze every other hair on the hairline by plucking from the root. Pulling out hairs from the root will keep hairs from breaking off and the lace from snagging. Tweeze only a few hairs at a time; plucking even several strands in one location can leave a conspicuous bald spot.

  5. 5

    Secure the tweezed lace front wig onto your head using hair clips, wig adhesive or double-sided tape.

  6. 6

    Pull out a thin layer of strands across the front and sides using the pointy edge of a comb. Cut loose strands unevenly. Leave only 1 to 1.5 inches in length.

  7. 7

    Brush the strands across your hairline using a toothbrush, creating the appearance of baby hairs.
