How to Make The Lace Frontal in Wig
If you want a lace frontal (size 13×4-13×8), you’re going to have to accept that it will usually cost you much MORE than bundle of hair, it will require LOTS of tweaking to look the slightest bit natural (bleaching, twee-zing, tinting, trimming, etc.), and it will require WEEKLY maintenance/upkeep.A closure will lay down without some sort of adhesive only from around the end of your eyebrow to the other end of your eyebrow, depending on your head shape. To get those side burns and have that lace frontal mesh to your scalp like that you’re 99.9% going to have to use an adhesive (which does not have to be lace glue).There are many ways to install a frontal (sew in and wig). Here are the methods and the pros and cons of each:
“Glue-less” but with special product;
Pros: Easy at home fix, rinses off with water, does not irritate skin or break the hair, Lace lays mesh with the skin; product is used sparingly;Most natural looking, give illusion that hair is coming from scalp.
Cons: Lasts about 4-5 days at a time; May break edges if your forehead isn’t big enough to place properly and if not removed properly.
Pros: Lasts the longest (tops 2 weeks), Lace lays mesh with the skin
Cons: Glue is messy, must come back for a retouch unless you can do it at home; Glue is known for irritating the skin and severely breaking off the edges.
Pros: Easy to redo at home, strong hold
Cons: Tape may irritate the skin; does not lay as flat as the others, may shine through the lace
Pros: Does not use any product at all or elastic band, no breakage or irritation;
Cons: MUST come back for a retouch every 4-5 days; Entire frontal must be removed and re-installed; WILL cause thinning of hair by the ear (the anchor braids) because of how much tension used to pull it flat; Will not get the full versatility of the frontal because the lace near the ear won’t lay as flat
Pros: Does not use any product, lasts a little longer than the no product
Cons: Band can be uncomfortable (but can be adjusted), Client will not be able to achieve the side burns look (it will look unnatural around the ear area unless the client can maintain the baby hairs that are there to cover it.
