Step 1: Choose your wig 

The first thing you need to do when customizing your wig is to choose a wig. That’s a no brainer. At NAIJ Hair, we have lots of wig options that are premium quality.

After choosing your lace front human hair wig, place the wig on a mannequin head and secure it with your pins (T-pins work well). 

Step 2: Pluck like you never have before 

Plucking your wig will make the hair look more natural by creating a unique hairline. Use tweezers to pluck the excessive hair around the frontal hairline to make it look less bulky and artificial.

Part the hair in two parts down the hairline, and pluck loosely down the part to make the wig look more natural. Make sure you don’t over tweeze the hair because it can leave bald spots in the hair.

Step 3: Lighten the knots with bleach 

The knots of your lace front wigs are where the hair is connected and it looks like little black dots along the entire lace. By bleaching the knots a lighter shade, it creates an illusion where the hair looks like it’s growing out of your scalp. 

Take your bleach, developer, and a mixing bowl. Add powder bleach in the bowl and use a cream developer. Use your mixing brush and begin stirring the mixture until you create a paste that is not too runny.

Turn the lace front human hair wig inside out and pin it down to the mannequin head. Begin bleaching the knots along the entire lace and let it lighten for 15 to 30 minutes. Make sure you are bleaching the knots and not the actual hair. Wash the bleach out with a neutralizing shampoo.

Step 4: Cut the lace 

Next is to cut the lace along the hairline and the ears. Do this by putting the wig on the mannequin head before you start trimming the lace so the wig will fit you best.

After cutting the lace, add foundation to the hairline and the entire lace of the wig. Apply the wig to your own head and trim any access lace.

Step 5: Style those edges 

Styling baby hairs is like the icing on the cake. It adds a little sweetness to any look you want to slay. Take small sections from the frontal hairline and trim them with a razor to form baby hairs. Use your favourite gel or mousse to create your desired baby hairs.

You can style your human hair wig any way you want. If you are using heat on the wig, make sure you use a heat protectant to ensure the longevity of your hair investment.
