Lace Wig Application With Glue

Always clean the area around the hairline before application. Rubbing alcohol is a good prep to remove excess oil from the area the lace is to be applied on.

  1. Using a Q-Tip or applicator brush, apply a thin coat of glue around the perimeter of your hairline. Use a blow dryer on low to dry the glue until is not completely dry but tacky. Do NOT bond lace wig to wet glue, the wig will not set properly and will not stick well. The area should be sticky to the touch.
  2. After your glue is ready for application, you must position the lace wig on your head. To make sure it is aligned properly, you must first bond the wig at the center of your front hairline. (The center point can be determined by parting the hair down the middle and aligning it with the center of your forehead or widows peak.) Then going from one side to the other, press the edge of the wig down into the adhesive using a fine tooth comb.
  3. Double check your hairline and touch-up any areas where the wig is not applied securely. If you need to remove any excess glue use glue remover.
  4. When you have completed the application process, tie down your hairline with a silk or satin scarf. This will allow the glue to set and dry properly. You may also sit under a dryer during this step to aide in the drying process.
