What Is A Lace Frontal Wig?

Lace frontal wigs or lace front wigs, as they are sometimes called, are a variation of Lace Wigs which are sewed by human hair bundles with lace frontal. They are extremely popular among our clients and among people who wear wigs in general. Lace wigs can be classified by their mesh appearance that adds a greater realism to your wig. Lace frontal wigs are so named because the sheer lace that makes up the wig is located in the front part (the part that rests on the forehead) of the wig. These lace front wigs are ideal and extremely popular because they will appear as if you have a natural hairline in front, even if you are wearing a front lace wig.

Step By Step: How To Make Lace Frontal Wig

Step1: Preparing the Wig Band

Turn the wig band out to expose the lace. You want to start by bleaching the knots of the lace frontal in order to make it blend with your scalp color. Mix peroxide in a 1:1 ratio and spread the bleach on the lace with a knife as though you were spreading butter on a piece of toast. Do this on the front side of the big band and then turn it over and do the same thing on the back of it.

Step 2: Rinse Your Wig

Once you have spread the bleach, allow it to set for 30-40 minutes. Set a timer and go do something fun while you wait! When you return, you need to wash off the bleach with shampoo, tint the lace frontal and finally condition your wig. After conditioning and a quick rinse, your wig is ready to pluck!

Step 3: Plucking the Lace Frontal

To easily pluck the lace frontal, spray it with water. Pluck it right after conditioning, so that it’s still wet. Do not pluck the hairline because you could create a visible bald patch. The same process applies to the sides of the of the wig. Tie the hair up in a bun, and pluck sides the hairline. While you’re at it, it’s necessary to do the same thing on the lace frontal wig.

Step 4: Place Your Wig

Place the wig cap onto the mannequin head then place the lace frontal onto the cap. Drag the wig forward and down to where your ears will be when you wear it. Pin it down.

Step 5: Stitch Lace Frontal

Next, you’ll want to stitch the lace frontal to the wig cap. Stitch at the base of the lace where the lace meets the hair. Do your best to stitch as neatly as you can. At this stage, you can cut the extra lace off but this isn’t necessary or maybe even advisable. A better alternative would be to stitch it down also.

Step 6: Sew-in Your Hair Weave

It is at this point, that we begin sewing in the human hair weave. Start at the back of the mannequin head and attach the hair weave to the wig cap. Stitch from one side to the other following a semi-circle form around the mannequin head.

When you reach the other side, fold over the hair weft and sew it down neatly and securely so that it lays as flat as possible each time. Continue by stitching over to the other side of the head.

Repeat these steps until you reach the top of the head at the seam of the lace frontal and the wig cap and sew the tracks as closely together as you can to eliminate any gaps. You should only see tiny gaps between tracks.

Step 7: Cut Off The Excess Wig Cap

After that, cut off the excess wig cap since you’ll want the frontal to blend in with your hairline ultimately. Add the wig combs.

Step 8: Install Lace Frontal Wig

Cornrow your hair back neatly and put on the lace frontal wig you just made. Next, carefully trim the lace off at the front of the wig.

Step 9: Create The Natural Hairline

One of the main complaints from newbie lace front wig wearers is the unnatural hairline. No one's hairline is full from ear to ear, and it'll be the first indicator that you're wearing a wig. Adjust your lace front accordingly. If you have thinner natural edges, then pluck your lace front's hairline to get it to a more realistic density.
