I often see a lot of people wearing a frontal with the front all glued up. The essence of rocking a frontal is to make the weave look so real; like your real hair but, the reverse is often the case when you let a non-professional install your lace frontal weave or wig. Read on to learn tips on the most natural way to style your lace frontal.
What is a lace front?
A lace front is a small sheer lace panel along the front hairline attached to the frontal of the wig. The hair strands are hand-sewn into the holes of the lace. Wearing lace front wigs is very simple because they are stretchy and cover the entire scalp area and gives the appearance of a natural hairline.
How to lay a frontal?
You can attach your lace front wig using either a liquid adhesive or a tape adhesive. You can achieve a secure hold using either method…which option to choose is simply a matter of personal preference.
First, cut the lace back to the hairline. Be careful not to cut any of the hair. Place the wig on your head to ensure a natural appearance.
Clean your face and next with ensuring that you get all areas around the perimeter of your hairline. Allow the Scalp Protector to dry completely before applying the adhesive.
One very important thing to remember is to apply the glue thinly and evenly; it should be spread one inch beneath your hairline. After the glue is applied (preferably Got2b glue), carefully put the lace base of the wig on top of it. Let the glue dry for 15-20 minutes and your lace front wig should be firmly attached. You can also use a blower to hasten the drying process.
Carefully follow the steps above so natural that you can snap a pic and add the hashtag or caption “What Frontal” on Instagram.
