How to put on a lace front wig for beginners


Putting on a lace front wig for beginners may seem intimidating, but with the right guidance, it can be a simple process. Start by preparing your hair and ensuring the wig cap fits snugly. Position the wig on your head, aligning it with your natural hairline. Secure it in place using wig clips or bobby pins. For a glueless application, use adjustable straps or combs inside the wig to secure it. If using glue, apply a thin layer along the hairline and press the lace onto it. Finally, blend your natural hair with the wig, style as desired, and enjoy your flawless and natural-looking lace front wig!


Preparing Your Hair and Wig


Before applying a lace front wig, it's crucial to properly prepare your hair and the wig. Start by ensuring your natural hair is clean, dry, and free of any tangles. If your hair is long, consider braiding or pinning it flat against your head to create a smooth base. Next, adjust the wig cap to fit your head comfortably. Secure the wig cap using bobby pins or wig clips to ensure a secure and snug fit.


Applying a Lace Front Wig without Glue


If you prefer not to use glue, there are alternative methods to secure a lace front wig. Begin by positioning the wig on your head, aligning the front edge of the wig with your natural hairline. Adjust the wig until it sits comfortably and looks natural. Use wig clips or bobby pins to secure the wig at the front, sides, and back of your head. This method provides a secure fit while allowing for easy removal and repositioning.


Applying a Lace Front Wig with Glue


For a more secure and long-lasting hold, using glue can be an option. Start by placing the wig on your head and aligning it with your natural hairline. Apply a thin layer of wig adhesive or lace front glue along the hairline, using a brush or your fingers. Allow the glue to dry until it becomes tacky. Carefully press the lace front of the wig onto the glued area, starting from the center and working your way outwards. Gently smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles. Once the wig is in place, style as desired.


Blending the Wig with Your Natural Hair


Blending the wig with your natural hair is a crucial step to achieving a seamless and natural look. Whether you have short or long hair, these tips will help you seamlessly integrate the wig with your natural hair:


Match the Color


Select a lace front wig that closely matches your natural hair color. This ensures a seamless blend between your hair and the wig. If necessary, you can also dye or tone the wig to match your hair color.


Style Your Natural Hair


Before putting on the wig, style your natural hair in a way that complements the wig. If you have long hair, consider braiding or pinning it close to your head to create a flat base. For shorter hair, use a comb or brush to smooth and blend it with the wig.


Adjust the Hairline


If the wig's hairline looks too straight or unnatural, consider plucking some hair strands along the front edge to create a more realistic appearance. Be cautious and pluck sparingly, ensuring a gradual and natural-looking hairline.


Use Hair Accessories

Hair accessories such as headbands, scarves, or hats can help blend your natural hair with the wig. These accessories can cover any visible gaps or inconsistencies and provide a cohesive look.


Apply Styling Products


Use styling products like hairspray, serums, or gels to smooth down any fly aways and frizz. Apply a small amount to your natural hair and the wig, then comb or brush through for a polished and blended finish.


Heat Styling


If the wig is made from heat-resistant synthetic fibers or human hair, you can use heat-styling tools to further blend your natural hair with the wig. Use low heat settings and be mindful of the wig's recommended temperature limits.


Final Touches and Styling


Once the lace front wig is securely in place and blended with your natural hair, it's time to add the finishing touches. Style the wig according to your preference, whether it's straight, curly, or a specific updo. Use heat styling tools, hairspray, or other hair accessories to achieve the desired look. Take the time to adjust the wig's positioning if needed, ensuring it feels comfortable and looks natural.



Putting on a lace front wig may initially feel overwhelming, but with practice and the right techniques, it becomes easier. Whether you opt for a glue or glueless method, Divine Beauty Bar's step-by-step instructions will ensure a flawless and natural look. Embrace the versatility and beauty of lace front wigs with confidence.


To begin with a proper procedure first of all prepare your hair by cleaning and styling properly to create a smooth base. Secure the wig cap snugly on your head, ensuring a comfortable fit. When positioning the lace front wig, align it with your natural hairline for a seamless blend. Use wig clips or adhesive according to your preference to secure the wig in place.


To further blend the wig with your natural hair, you can use styling products. Apply a small amount of hairspray or gel to your fingertips and gently smooth down any fly aways or stray hairs. This will help create a more polished appearance.


If necessary, you can use heat styling tools on low settings to further blend your natural hair with the wig. For example, you can use a flat iron or curling iron to match the texture and style of the wig. However, be cautious when using heat to avoid damaging the wig or your own hair. Use heat protectant products before applying any heat.
