Lace Front Wigs
There are three methods of attachment to secure a lace front wig.
Wig Grip. Flexible fabric, usually velvet, that wrap around your head and provide a place to secure your wig. It’s best to choose a band that’s close to your skin color. That way it’s less likely the band underneath your wig will be seen.
Glue. For a lace front installation with glue, first secure your hair with a wig cap or clips. If you use a stocking cap, be sure to use hairspray or styling gel to secure your edges in place.
Double-Sided Wig Tape. Requires no mess and is easy to apply. If you do mess up during the application process, it’s easy to remove the tape and readjust your wig. It’s also easy to wash off than glue and start over.
Our non-slip enhanced wigs are made with a special material called ‘artificial skin’. This skin-like material uses your body head to naturally adhere the wig to your scalp. Therefore, glue or tape is not required. Non-slip wigs can be worn by everyone. However, they adhere best when the hairs are less than 2″ in height.
