How to Cut Lace for Lace Front Wig and Full Lace Wig

Making a lace front wig is a long, meticulous process that can take 10 to 15 days. Once the lace front wig is complete, the excess lace that hangs over the forehead must be trimmed back into the wig for the most natural look. This is a delicate process that takes a steady hand, a good pair of scissors and a lot of patience. Since a lace front wig does not reach all the way around to the nape of the neck, this process will be shorter and a little easier than making a full lace wig which will take more than 3 weeks.

Things You’ll Need:
Thin hair clip.
2 large clips
Rat tail comb,scissors.

1.Find the center of the front of the lace wig and slide the thin hair clip vertically to mark the position. There should be two even lace pieces on each sides.

2.Clip the hair on either side of the center-marking clip back using the two large hair clips. This will keep any stray hairs from being cut sometimes.

3.Cut away about a quarter-inch of the lace all around the front and sides of the lace wig hairline. Do this using long, fluid scissor strokes to avoid jagged edges. It is best to cut away small portions of lace instead of all of it at first, since cutting away too much maybe will ruin the lace front wig sometimes.

4.Remove the center-marking clip. Keep the hair clipped back, adjust the clips as necessary.

5.Cut the lace back towards the beginning of the hairline in the front and sides. The lace that is on the forehead will be the most visible, so it should be cut back all the way to the hairline. Pull the lace tight with your fingers while cutting to ensure even, smooth cut.

6.Trim the sides of the lace front wig so that only about an eighth-inch of lace protrudes out from under the hairline. It is not necessary to cut the lace all the way back on the sides, since this part is not as visible as the forehead lace.

7.Double check the trimmed lace to ensure that there are no jagged edges. Make sure the lace is cut completely even, especially around the forehead area,cover lace with make-up if needed.
