If you are a lace wig wearer in daily life, you must know that when you got a new front lace wig, no matter what the lace front wig styles are, it usually comes with excess lace that hangs over the forehead. You must trim it back into the wig to get the most natural-looking. Here, this post is about how to cut lace front wig, you will know the tools that need to be used and the steps about how to properly cut a lace front wig.

The most important thing is, a steady hand, a good pair of scissors and much patience are needed when you do the process. The process will be shorter and a little easier than a full lace wig since a lace front wig does not reach all the way around to the nape of the neck. By the way, Because all of the Nadula hair wigs are made of virgin human hair, we will take virgin hair lace front wig as an example in this article.

Tools Needed To Cut Virgin Hair Lace Front Wig

1. A scissor or razor

These two tools serve the same purpose but they are up to preference. For the scissor, if you're a beginner you might want to cut it a little bit further away from the hairline because in case you make any mistakes you can always go back and fix it. I highly suggest that you use a small scissor.

Some say razors allow the more “jagged” cut which mimics the hairline more naturally. While others have found that scissors also allows that “jagged” cut.

2. Wig Head (optional) 

This tool is up to your personal preference. Some people like to cut their lace on their wig heads, while others like to cut their lace while the wig is on their heads.

3. Clips

Used to clip away access hair.

After all the tools are prepared, we can begin to cut the lace step by step:

How To Cut Lace Front Wig?

Step 1: Braid your Hair

Braid your hair into scalp braids, a twist out, or a low ponytail. Doing so allows your wig to sit on your head evenly. The flatter the hair, the flatter your frontal lace wig will sit on your head. Cover your hair using a wig cap to avoid friction from your wig base, which may lead to breakage.

Step 2: Put Wig On or Place Wig on Wig Head

The most important thing to do in this step is making sure your lace lays flat and where you plan on wearing it. When using a wig form, use your pins to lay your lace flat. When placing the wig on your head, use clips to clip the wig down or use the adjustable strap in the back.

Step 3: Cut the Corners near your ears

Clip any excess hair out of your way. Doing this allows you to see better as well as ensuring you do not cut off any extra hair or lace. Now, cut the corner nearest to your ear and around the ear on both sides if necessary.

Step 4: Cut Off Sections

Cutting your lace in sections vs straight across allows you more room to create the natural hairline you desire. Most times, cutting the lace off in a straight line gives the hairline the “wig” looks. Make your first cut straight down the middle of the lace. Next, make cuts by your temples

lastly, make cuts between your temple and ear. Now that you have your sections begin trimming your hairline one section at a time.

Step 5: Glue Lace down (Optional)

Use adhesive glue, tape, or gel to lay your lace down onto your head. Wrap your head using a silk scarf for about ten minutes to makes sure your edges and adhesive are laid down.
