People usually buy wigs to upgrade their hairstyles. If you keep wearing your hair the same way every day without styling it up even a little bit with extensions, what’s the point? Experimenting is one of the many reasons behind getting a wig and you should use it to its full potential.
All you fashion addicts, gather around! This post mentions several ways of styling your straight lace frontal wig. Don’t stress, even if you are a beginner. These techniques are quite easy to follow, and you can soon impress everyone around with the chicest hairstyles.
Do not get too disarmed by the word “kit” – you probably have everything you need to change your hair up a bit so just take them out to get started with the work. A wide-tooth comb, a paddle brush, sulfate-free shampoo, straightener, tweezers, curling iron, wig spray, and scissors are all the things you need to bring out a new look with your lace front wig. The only item you might not have is a wig spray, but it is readily available at any nearby store, and you will have to use it throughout the duration of having extensions. This is why it’s better to get it now. Let’s browse through the hairstyles and see which one suits you best:
A great option for summers, French braids are both practical and fashionable. If your day revolves around being outdoors for chores, this should be your go-to hairstyle. You can sport a trendy French tail if you have a lace front wig with medium-length hair.
However, if you are a beginner, you might think these braids require a lot of effort which is true. But once you get the hang of it, it barely takes 15 minutes. Just split your hair into two sections and divide the top part into three 3 equal strands. Hold those three strands with your fingers and thumbs and lace them together by crossing each strand over the other.
Don’t pull the extensions too hard to avoid loosening them from the lace cap. Keep repeating the process until you are left with about 2 inches of hair. Secure it tightly with a hair tie and go about your day without worrying about the loose strands teasing your face.
Use a hair tie to pull your wig in a neat look. Ponytails work well in both casual and professional settings so you can either tie the wig at the base of your neck or a few inches above. There is a common misconception that you cannot pull wig hair into a ponytail but with the perfect technique, you can achieve that look. After attaching the lace front wig to your scalp, leave a few strands of your natural hair popping out to give it a messy look. Secure all the strands with a band and there you have it – a stylish ponytail that goes with any outfit you don! Experts say that with extensions you should always aim for a loose ponytail sitting close to your neck. High ponytails might cause the strands of the wig to break from the roots.
Do you like the laid-back look a little too much but always struggle with volume? Don’t worry, try a new method and we ensure you, you will rock the lounge look anywhere. This hairstyle is a walk in the park for people who know how to a tie a mean ponytail with a front lace hairpiece. Follow the steps above to secure your hair in a nice tail with a cloth tie. Again, it could be near the base of your neck or a few inches higher. Avoid combing your hair to get a nice messy look. Twist the ponytail around and leave a few inches off the tail to secure it with hair pins or another tie. Loosen a few strands from the front and perfect your chic style with a wig spray.
You might be wondering why there was a mention of clippers or scissors in the tool kit for styling wigs. Well, here’s why: you can chop a little hair from the wig to achieve several amazing looks. The long-layered cut involves trimming a bit of your hair in layers to make it seem a little chunkier and therefore thicker. Obviously, a hairstylist is the best guy who can give you perfect layers but if you want to take things in your own hands, you can do it without damaging your locks. Just remember to wash and condition your wig before picking up the scissors. First, secure them with clippers, then release a few inches and cut equal lengths. The end result should have layers that add volume to your wig.
Try these hairstyles and improve your fashion game every day. If the quality of your front lace wig is incredible, you wouldn’t have to worry about losing strands in styling.
