Different Ways to Style Your Lace Front Wigs

Knowing the different ways to style your lace front wig can be very important, especially if you find yourself tired of rocking the same style of hairstyle every week. Here we will help you master the act of styling your lace front wigs, the first style we are going to introduce is:

French Braid

  3.   Take the right strand in your right hand, the left strand in your left hand and hold the middle strand down with your thumb
  4.   Weave the hair together by taking the left strand of your lace front wig and crossing it between the right and the middle one. Be careful not to pull the sections roughly so as not to damage your wig cap.
  5.   Continue the step above by adding same sized strands of hair to the right and the left strands till the end
  6.   Leave about two inches of hair free and unbraided, then secure it with a hairband or tie.

Long-layered Cut

For this hair style, your hair will require some trimming, the tresses will be cut in layers to add hair volume and also complement your face structure. Here's how you can achieve a long-layered cut with your lace front wig:

  1.   Wash and condition your hair before starting the hairdo process
  2.   Gather or pack all your hair in one bunch and hold them with a clip
  3.   Release an inch of your wig hair from the lower bottom and cut it using a pair of scissors
  4.   Release the upper layer by an inch and cut it slightly above the bottom layer
  5.   Repeat the above step across all layers. Trim them in such a way that each one stands out sharply.
  6.   Release the hair gathered on the crown and part it from the center. Take one half and cut it straight to have an uneven look.
  7.   Take the other half of the wig and repeat the step above; cut the wig in equal length to the first half
  8.   Complete the look by combing your wig hair and pressing it straight.
