People who are applying these wigs for the first few times need to be a little more patient until they master the art. Listed below are the essential steps to follow while putting on lace front wigs in manner that ensure a perfect fit and a secure grip.
- Before starting the application process, it is important to ensure that all the products required for the same are placed within easy reach. This would include the cleansing agents, wig tapes or adhesive, scissors and of course the wig.
- It is also important to ensure that the skin where the lace of the wigs is to be attached is free from any dirt, oil and moisture. As such wig wearers should thoroughly cleanse bald scalp and the skin around the hairline to remove any dirt and oil and then wipe it dry so that the area is moisture free.
- In order to protect the skin form any allergies and prevent any irritation caused by the lace, individuals should apply a thin layer of skin protector around the perimeter of the hairline. Give a gap of a few minutes to let the protector dry completely.

Wearers should also hold back the baby hairs on the wig so that these do not get stuck with the adhesive or wig tape during application.
