Step 3: You may use hair adhesive to attach your wig, but be sure to avoid the area of your head that contains your natural hair.

Step 4: Make the hair into a high ponytail by using a comb to collect it. Use a hair tie to keep it in place.

Step 5: Bring your natural hair up and over the hairline in the back of the wig, and then fix it with bobby pins so that it stays in place. You should include your long hair in a ponytail if it is long enough.

Step 6: To conceal the elastic band that holds your hair back in a ponytail, just split off a little piece of your hair and wrap it around the band. Maintain its position with a bobby pin.

Step 7: To get a smooth and shiny appearance, gently comb in a tiny quantity of gel down the length of your head, and then add a few drops of hair oil to the ponytail.

#4. Layered Cut

When you want to upgrade the look of your lace front wig, a layered cut is an excellent option. This style adds movement and volume to your locks by creating shorter layers around the face and neck that gently blend into longer lengths at the back. It's especially ideal for those with medium-length wigs, as it can give them a more flattering shape.

Layered Cut

  • Curling iron
  • Small rubber hair ties
  • Haircutting scissors (do not use regular scissors)

To create a layered cut, follow the steps below:

Step 1: To avoid having uneven hair trimmed, first use a straightener to get the hair in the desired position.

Step 2: Make a slit in the center of your wig.

Step 3: Take a portion of hair about the size of your thumb and separate it from the hair on each side of your face. Gather them together into a ponytail about two inches below your chin, and then tie the ponytail with an elastic band.

Step 4: Repeat the process with the second part of hair from either side of your head, drawing it to the front of your head and fastening it with a hair tie around half an inch below the initial section of your hair.

Step 5: Repeat the process with two additional portions of your hair, or continue until all of your hair is safely fastened. When compared to the other portions, there should be a little larger gap between the third and final sections.

Step 6: Take off the hair tie that is attached to the first portion.

Step 7: First, take the hair from both portions and hold it between your index and middle fingers. Next, give each area a single twist. If necessary, switch hands after you've completed the twist.

Step 8: Make a series of fine cuts in an upward motion that is slightly ragged below your fingertips. Continue doing this until you have trimmed all of the hair. This approach avoids blunt ends.

Step 9: Proceed in the same way with the last three parts of the puzzle.

Step 10: Blend the layers by cutting in a downward diagonal motion with your scissors until the ends and breaks between the parts no longer seem jagged. This process should continue until the jagged appearance is eliminated.

Step 11: You may get a stunning end effect by curling your hair.
