How to apply your lace wig using tape

If you have just purchased a human hair lace wig and would rather apply it using tape instead of glue, here are some handy instructions for you to consider.

  1. Braid your hair in cornrows or pin your hair flat and place a wig cap on your head that is in a colour that is closest to your scalp.
  2. Take some double sided tape and cut it if necessary to a desired shape to go around the perimeter edge of your wig. Try to line up the tape as close to the hairline as you can. It is also so wise to let the tape go between the wig cap and your skin to ensure all areas are covered properly.
  3. Leave a few spaces between the tape pieces to allow room for your scalp to breathe.
  4. Place the wig on your head so that the perimeter of the lace lines up with the tape.
  5. Pin back the hair so that it doesn’t stick to the tape when it is being applied.
  6. Peel the tape backing off to reveal the adhesive.
  7. Start at the front of your hairline and attach the wig starting at the middle of the forehead.
  8. Press the tape down firmly and hold for up to a minute.
  9. Once the wig has been applied to your full hair line, tie a head band or silk scarf on to your head and pull tight to set the tape adhesive to form a firm bond.
  10. Wear your head scarf for 30 minutes to an hour and remove. You now have a beautiful natural hairline and everyone will think it’s your own hair!
