LACE FRONT AND LACE WIG APPLICATION GUIDE
PLEASE READ ENTIRE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE ATTACHING UNIT

Preparing Lace Wig for Application:

I find it easier to place wig on a Styrofoam mannequin in order to cut the lace.
1. Put clips on hair and baby hair around the perimeter of the wig. This will prevent the hair from getting stuck in the glue when applying the unit.
2. Carefully cut the lace around the entire hairline, a little at a time. You may cut all the lace off or you can leave a little of the lace if you feel more comfortable doing so. Make sure all baby hair is carefully pinned back so it is not cut.

Preparing Skin and Hair for Application:

1. Wash, condition and dry your hair. After your hair is dried either braid hair in small cornrows or tightly wrap the hair around the head.
2. Wash your face completely. Then using cotton balls, use 99% Isopropyl alcohol to clean around your entire hairline to remove any oil that may be on your skin.
3. “OPTIONAL”, However, I do recommend using it. Apply scalp protector or liquid band aide to prevent skin irritation. This will act as a barrier between your skin and the adhesive. (This step is very important for those who workout, swim or those with sensitive skin.)
4. Before applying the adhesive, place wig on the head. Using an eyebrow pencil, mark an outline where you want the wig to be placed at the hairline. Now remove the wig from the head.
