But before you rock that #flawlesswig, let's master the art of installation. Buckle up for a step-by-step guide that'll make you a closure champ in no time!
Gather Your Squad:
- Your trusty lace closure: Choose one that matches your skin tone and desired parting style.
- Wig adhesive: Opt for a gentle formula suitable for your skin type and wig weight.
- Wig clips: To secure the closure while the adhesive sets.
- Foundation and concealer: For blending the lace to your skin tone.
- Brow pencil or hair mascara: For creating wispy baby hairs (optional).
- Scissors: For trimming the lace, if needed.
- Tweezers: For precision placement.
- Cotton swabs: For cleaning and touching up.
Prepare the Battlefield:
- Wash and condition your natural hair: Start with a clean canvas for optimal wig grip.
- Deep-condition (optional): For extra smoothness and protection.
- Braid your hair down: Flat braids work best for a secure base.
- Part your hair: Match the parting of your closure for a natural look.
Lace Like a Boss:
- Apply a thin layer of adhesive: Focus on the perimeter of the lace and leave it to dry to tacky.
- Position the closure: Align the parting with your natural hair and gently press down, starting from the front hairline.
- Secure with clips: Hold the closure in place while the adhesive sets.
- Trim any excess lace: Be careful not to cut into the hair knots!
- Blending Magic: Use foundation and concealer to match the lace to your skin tone. Apply in light layers and dab, don't swipe.
- Baby Hair Brilliance: Add wispy baby hairs with a brow pencil or mascara for extra realism.
Voila! Lace Conquered!
Now that your closure is slaying, remember these maintenance tips:
- Cleanse your wig regularly: Follow the care instructions for your specific wig.
- Baby your lace: Be gentle when washing and storing to avoid tearing.
- Touch-up adhesive: Reapply as needed for a secure hold.
