Have you ever struggled to secure your lace front wig with a lace glue or tape? If so, you’re not alone. 


Over the years, we have worked with many hairstylists who have shared valuable tips with us. This article will discuss installing a lace front wig without glue or tape. 


Wearing a lace front wig doesn’t have to be daunting. You can achieve a natural and secure look without glue or tape with the right tools and techniques. 


So, let’s get started!


Tools Needed


You’ll need the following tools:

  • 1、Bobby Pins: These will help secure the wig and prevent it from shifting.


  • 2、Scissors: If it’s a new lace front wig, you may need to trim the lace on the wig with scissors or a razor so it can perfectly fit your hairline.


  • 3、Wig Grip Band: This will keep the wig in place and prevent slippage. The wig grip band is worn underneath the wig to provide a non-slip surface.


  • 4、Comb or Brush: Once it’s in place, you will need a comb or brush to style the wig.


Step-By-Step Procedure


Here’s a step-by-step process for wearing a lace front wig without glue or tape.


Step 1: Prepare your hair


Before putting on your wig, ensure your hair is tidy. Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your hair, then divide it into small sections. 


It’s best to create cornrows or braids that lay flat on your head and provide a smooth surface to clip the wig on. Use a wig grip band to hold your wig in place for a firmer grip and non-slip surface.


Step 2: Position the wig


Wear the wig and adjust it to fit comfortably. Open all the clips on the wig and fit them into your natural hair. The ear tabs should align with your ears, and the wig should sit snugly on your head. Make sure the wig’s hairline is also aligned with your natural hairline. If the wig is too tight or loose, use the adjustable straps at the back to adjust the fit.


Step 3: Secure the clips


Use the combs or clips inside the wig cap to secure the wig in place. Start at the front of the wig and work your way back. Be sure to insert the clips directly into your natural hair. Begin at the front hairline and clip each section of the wig down, ensuring the clips or combs are secure. 


Then, slowly work your way towards the back of the wig. Avoid pulling too tightly, as this can cause headaches. Use pressure-sensitive clips instead of metal ones for a more comfortable fit.


If you want, you can also use bobby pins to hold the wig in place further. Place the pins on the wig’s ear tabs, sides, and back, then attach them to your natural hair for more security.


Step 4: Check the wig


Shake your head slightly to check if anything is slipping. If you feel any movement, secure the clips more tightly or consider sewing in more clips. Adjust the wig till it sits comfortably and looks natural. Use your fingers to smooth out any bumps or lumps.


Step 5: Style as desired


Use scissors to trim any excess lace from the wig. Cut the lace carefully and follow the shape of your natural hairline.


Once the wig is secured, you can style it to your liking. Use a rat-tail comb to separate the hair at the lace part. You can also use concealer or foundation to blend the lace part with your skin tone.


If the wig is curly or wavy, use a curling iron or hot rollers to enhance the curls or waves. On the other hand, if you want to straighten the wig, use a flat iron on a low-heat setting. However, use a heat-protectant spray before curling or straightening to prevent damage to the hair.
