Step By Step Guide: How To Cut A Lace Front Wig

Fashion Blog Mon Feb 05 2024

Lace front wigs are becoming increasingly popular among individuals searching for a natural-looking, adaptable hair option. Cutting is an important step in getting a perfect and individualized appearance with your lace front wig. While it may appear difficult, cutting a lace front wig is doable with the appropriate equipment and procedures. This article will show you how to cut a lace front wig properly.

Why Should You Cut The Lace Front Wig?

Cutting the lace allows you to mold the wig to fit your natural hairline, resulting in a smooth and realistic transition from the wig to your own hair. This makes the wig appear more natural and less like a wig.

It also gives you additional styling possibilities. You may make a natural-looking hairline, separate the hair in various ways, and even draw it back without showing the wig's edge.

How To Cut A Lace Front Wig

Before you start cutting your lace front wig, there are a few things you need to prepare in advance:

  • Clips (Large)

  • Rat-tail comb

  • Scissors, eyebrow shaver, or razor

  • Wig head (optional)

  • Foaming mousse or water

  • Makeup pencil 

Step 1: Put the wig on

On your head: The wig's hairline should be about a quarter-inch above your actual hairline. Secure the item with the clips and adjustable straps. Make sure the lace is sitting flat against your head.

On a wig head: Secure the wig with a few T- pins. That way, it won't slide around the area.

Step 2: Cut off the ear tabs

Use the pointed end of a comb or another instrument to divide the hair right above your ear.

Pin the hair up, leaving a little tab of the wig over the ear.

Cut around the contour of your ear using scissors, then remove the tab you cut off to help the wig lay flat throughout cutting and installation.

Step 3: Mark the hairline

It is a good idea to mark the hairline as a guide. Although it helps you not cut too much of the lace off, some people choose not to do this step.

Take a makeup pencil and draw your hairline from ear to ear. Simply draw a line on your skin in the form of your hairline. Make sure to leave roughly a quarter-inch gap between your hairline and the traced line. If necessary, comb the wig hair backward and use clips to keep it out of the way. To hold the hair in place, apply a small amount of style mousse or water.

If you're going to use a wig head, put the wig on completely, fasten it to your head, and draw a quarter-inch line on top of the lace in front of your natural hairline. That way, when you put the wig on your wig head to cut the lace, you can use the line as a guide.

Step 4: Cut the lace

Make little cuts along the hairline where you marked on the lace to make small portions that are easy to cut and prevent snags or jagged edges.

Pull the lace taut and gently cut each part along the hairline to prevent accidentally cutting into it.

During the cutting process, try to avoid cutting exactly straight lines because they might appear less natural.

If you don’t feel confident cutting the lace off in one piece, no problem. You can cut the lace in small sections to make the process easier.

Things You Need To Remember

Lace front wigs must be cut, but not too close to the hairline; otherwise, the hair will begin to fall out. Lace front wigs should be cut 1 to 2 inches from the hairline.

When the lace front is cut off wrongly, the hair will dry and become brittle. The hair will begin to stand out since it no longer resembles your own natural hair. It is advised that you care for your wigs as you would your hair, keeping them in perfect shape.

When the hairline is cut wrongly, it does not resemble a natural hairline. Try to avoid a terrible look on your wig. If you are unsure how to cut or apply the lace front wig, see a professional hairstylist.

Many first-time users use improper adhesive on their lace front wig. Please be aware that the appropriate adhesive must be applied and allowed to dry completely; the procedure might take up to 15 minutes to complete.
