Instead of the traditional Hair Bundles,Lace Wigs customization is one of the most fun ways to take advantage of wigs without damaging your natural hair. Lace front human hair wigs are especially popular for customization as you can bleach, color and manipulate the wig hair with heat and styling tools without worry.
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 Cheap Lace Front Wigs 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 look like little black dots along 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
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: 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 6: 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 7: 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.
