Step 1: Lay out your extensions, or “wefts,” on a flat surface, grouping together like sizes.
Step 2: Part your hair wherever you would normally.
Step 3: Section off hair perpendicularly from your part down to your ear.
Step 4: Use a hair clip to hold the section in place.
Step 5: Repeat steps 2–3 on the opposite side of your head.
Step 6: At the back of your head, section off the bottom inch of hair and clip up the rest of your hair.
Step 7: Select the weft of hair that will best fit the section. You will continue to do this for each section.
Step 8: Use small hair elastics to create sections of hair the same distance apart as the extension clips.
Step 9: Open up the clips on the first weft.
Step 10: Secure the weft clip on top of the elastic and snap closed.
Step 11: Once all clips are snapped closed, smooth out the hair with your fingers or a brush.
Step 12: About half an inch up from the first weft, create the next section of hair.
Step 13: Use small hair elastics to create sections of hair the same distance apart as the clips on the weft.
Step 14: Secure each weft clip on top of the corresponding elastic and snap closed.
Step 15: Once each clip is closed, smooth out hair with fingers or a brush.
Step 16: Create the next section half an inch above the last and put in the small elastics.
Step 17: Snap each extension clip closed on each elastic and smooth out your hair with fingers or a brush.
Step 18: Create the next section half an inch above the last and put in the small elastics.
Step 19: Snap each clip closed on the elastics and smooth hair with fingers or a brush.
Step 20: If you parted your hair on the side, create the next section toward the side with the most hair - not directly in the middle of your head.
Step 21: Snap each extension clip closed on the elastics and smooth hair with fingers or a brush.
Step 22: Create the next section of hair on the side of the head with more hair, about half an inch above the weft.
Step 23 : Use one hair elastic and an extension weft with a single clip.
Step 24: Snap the clip closed and smooth the hair with fingers or a brush.
Step 25: On the side of your part with less hair, use one hair elastic for an extension weft with one clip.
Step 26: Snap the clip closed and smooth hair with fingers or a brush. Take down the rest of your hair and style as desired.

How to Apply Full Lace Wigs

Full lace wigs look natural and stay put when you put them on correctly. They can even be worn during most sports activities without coming off. Put on your full front lace wig the right way so that only you will know that those luxurious locks are not yours.

Step 1
Put on a flesh-colored wig cap, tucking all of your hair inside the cap. Adjust the wig cap so it sits at your front hairline. If you don’t want to wear a wig cap, comb your hair back away from your scalp line.
Step 2
Trim the lace on the full lace wig. This only needs to be done the first time you use your wig, and it does not need to be done if the lace has already been trimmed by the manufacturer. To trim the lace, put the wig on your head. Use hair clips to fasten the wig hair back away from your scalp line. Trim any lace that sticks out past the wig hairline using a pair of sharp scissors. Cut small amounts of lace at a time to avoid accidentally cutting too much. Be careful not to cut any of the wig hair. Leave a little bit of lace sticking out past the wig hairline, but no more than 1 inch.
Step 3
Clean the skin by your hairline with a cotton ball dampened with isopropyl alcohol to remove body oils that could prevent the wig adhesive from sticking properly.
Step 4
Apply scalp protector to the skin by your hairline. This only is necessary if you have sensitive skin.
Step 5
Attach wig tape to the edges of the full lace wig. The tape is applied to the edges of the lace around the underside of the wig. Wig tape can be used alone or in combination with wig adhesive.
Step 6
Apply a thin layer of wig adhesive to your scalp using a cotton swab. Allow the wig adhesive to dry for the length of time recommended on the label directions. Wig adhesive can be used alone or in combination with wig tape.
Step 7
Position the full lace wig on your head. The easiest way to find the front-center of the wig is to part the hair on the wig. Parting the hair will reveal the hairline. The middle of the wig hairline should line up with the middle of your forehead at your hairline. Press down on the edges of the wig for five seconds to make the adhesive stick to your skin. Style the wig as desired.
