Question by sothru: How to apply a lace front wig when u have a lot of hair on your edges?
I just purchased a new synthetic lace front wig. I applied it the correct way and cut off the lace just like you’re supposed to do. The only problem is…it doesnt look as natural as it should. I have a lot of hair on my edges and i know i must apply it past my edges. My edges come really close to my face. What could I do to make it look more like it’s mine?

I have almost the exact same problem as you. My edges go very far, and when I tried to apply a frontlace wig, it looked extremely unnatural as it was even MORE toward my brow since I tried to cover my natural hairline.
What I did (and most frontlace wig users would probably shudder at this) was part a quart inch of my natural hairline and separate it from the rest of the hair. I applied the lace ON that part.
It looked really great, and I think that’s something that people with lower hairlines will have to work with to adjust.
There’s so many things that I have a hard time doing because of the hairline! But there’s always a way to work around it.
Good luck, I hope this helps some and works for you too.
