Get the Perfect Part

After cleaning and prepping your wig, it’s time to work on how to style a wig to look natural. Your margin of error for getting an unnatural look is millimeters wide.

When discussing parts, it is best to differentiate between lace-front wigs and 360-lace wigs. There is a difference in how you can manipulate the parts and lace.

A 360-lace frontal wig will allow you to part or section the perimeter of your frontal, and achieve ponytail styles. While full-lace wigs can be styled into updos and can even be used to create braids, plaits, and cornrows. Full-lace, or 360 wigs, give you more versatility in styling options. Lace-front wigs, on the other hand, allow you to create a part only where the lace is attached to the base of the wig. Typically, you can manipulate the front sections of the wig for parting purposes. Hence the name lace front.

How to Part a Lace-Front Wig

Let’s start with how to style a lace-front wig.

Lace-front wigs will allow you to manipulate the hair only in the front of the wig. This means you can create a part anywhere along the front of the wig where the lace is sewn onto the structure. It’s good to start your styling by deciding where you would like to section the wig to create a natural-looking part.

A key factor to consider before you cut the wig is how you plan to install it. Will you use glue or other methods to install the wig, and what looks best with your natural hairline? You may opt to purchase a ready-to-wear lace wig. These wigs will require less work to create a natural look out of the packaging.

Some wigs will require you to apply makeup foundation to the lace to best mimic your scalp and may require you to pluck hair to create a part that appears natural. Not all parts are the same. When you naturally part your hair, think about the width of your part and the density of hair along the part. You will also need to adjust the lace that will follow your hairline along the front of the wig.

Place the wig on your head and adjust it, outline where you would like to cut the lace from the front of the wig with an eyeliner pencil, and remove the extra lace with a small pair of scissors you can easily maneuver. Remember that you can always cut more off, but you cannot add it back once you remove it.

How to Part a 360-Lace Wig:

360-lace wigs offer more variety in styling. Because these wigs are made by looping hair onto lace to create the entire wig, you can part the wig anywhere you want, and you can even rock cornrows and updos with these wigs. They are most often made with human hair and can be dyed, curled, or straightened to meet your styling needs.

Lace-front wigs, full-lace or 360-lace wigs will all require you to trim the lace around the edge of the wig and manipulate the part you wish to create. Since full-lace wigs come in different levels of hair density, meaning some wigs are fuller than others, you may need to adjust the width of the part by plucking some hairs. You can then color the part with foundation to best match your scalp.

Keep in mind we are talking about millimeters of width to manipulate. Slow and steady is best when adjusting your parts. Take your time when plucking hair, and remember it is very important that you make these adjustments while you are wearing the wig. Do not attempt to do this on the wig stand. It will result in uneven and dis-satisfactory results.
