Now that you know the do’s and don’ts, here are some great styles to try with your lace front wig:
It is important to remember that while a lace front wig might look very natural from the front, the back may not. Pulling your hair up and making a half ponytail leaves hair to cover your nape. You can turn that ponytail into a bun as well. A low ponytail over the nape of your neck will also look great.
2. Half-Space Buns
Space buns will also leave your neck covered with the front of your hair up. Make a part in your hair from the top of your ears horizontally, from ear to ear. Make a part through the middle of the collected hair and fasten one side with a hair tie until you finish the other side. Then, use that top section of your hair to make two small buns. You can even leave strands of hair hanging loose to frame your face if you would like.
3. French Braids
French braids are an excellent way to wear your hair. They are useful if you are going to be doing something and need to keep your hair out of the way. They also look amazing!. To create French braids, first, part your hair down the middle. Tie or pin one section out of the way while you braid one side. Gather three strands of hair and start braiding at the top of your head, working toward the back. As you move down, add new sections of hair to each third of your braid. When you get to the bottom, put a hair tie at the end to hold it. Athen, you are ready to do the other braid.
