Tools Needed To Cut The Lace
Wig stand (optional) - this tool is up to your personal choice, a wig stand or cut the lace front closure on your own head, both are okay.
Scissors or razor - again these two tools are also up to preference. Some say razors allow the more “jagged” cut which mimics the hairline more naturally. While others insisted that scissors also allows that “jagged” cut.
Clips - used to clip away excess hair.
Tweezers - to pluck your hairline be more natural.
Be sure to gather all your tools prior to cutting the lace off of your wig.
How To Trim The Lace
Step 1: Braid your Hair
Braid your hair into scalp braids, a twist out, or a low ponytail. This could make sure the wig (e.g,made from honey blonde bundles) evenly. The flatter the hair, the flatter your wig will worn on your head. Cover your hair using a wig cap to avoid friction from your wig base(if possible), which may lead to breakage.
Step 2: Put Wig On or Place Wig on Wig Head
The most important step is making sure your lace lays flat.
When using a wig stand, use the pins to lay your lace flat.
When placing the wig on your head, use clips to clip the wig down or use the adjustable strap in the back.
Step 3: Cut The Corners near your ears
Clip the excess hair out of your way. Doing this helps you to see better as well as ensuring you do not cut off any extra hair or lace.
Now, cut the corner nearest to your ear and around the ear on both sides if necessary.
Step 4: Cut Off Sections
Cutting your lace in sections could create the natural hairline you desire. Most times, cutting the lace off in a straight often gives the hairline the “wiggy”looks, especially for the wig sewed by cheap 613 bundles with closure.
Make your first cut straight down the middle of the lace.
Next make cuts by your temples
lastly, make cuts between your temple and ear
Now that you have your sections begin trimming your hairline one section at a time.
Step 5: Glue Lace down (Optional Step)
Use adhesive glue like Got2b, tape, or gel to lay your lace down onto your head. Wrap your head with a silk scarf/wrap for about 10-15 minutes to makes sure your edges and adhesive are laid down neatly.
Do not show your natural hair out: Some women like to pull their edged out in the front. We do advise you do pull all of your back and secure it prior to placing your wig on your head. Doing this could keep from none of your hair exposing accidentally.
Try melting the lace to your skin tone: Doing this ensures that the lace is undetectable and the baby hairs, as if growing from your own scalp.
Be careful with your wig: the lace is delicate. So make sure you are handling it with care.
