Learning how to style a lace wig can help you achieve custom looks that the beauty stores can’t provide. It also great to know that you do not have to settle with the basic hairstyles and looks that are on the shelves.
With a little styling products and simple techniques, you can transform that plain jane wig into a edgy style.
A Curly Way to Style a Lace Wig
Below we break down a tutorial by YouTube vlogger peakmill for her Quick & Easy Tapered Curly Fro Look.
You want to choose a textured wavy lace wig. In the tutorial, she uses a Deep Wave Brazilian Virgin Hair Full Lace Wig by Wow African.
A list of the tools and products you will need:
- Co-wash conditioner
- Light hair oil (argan oil, grapeseed oil, or jojoba oil)
- Setting lotion
- Perm rods – 1/2″ for the back, left, & right side – 3/4″ for the top (amount will vary on hair thickness)
- Hair Clips
- Professional hair cutting sheers / scissors
- Hair Pick
- Styrofoam or Canvas wig head
Before you begin styling, co-wash the wig.
Next, secure the wig on a wig head with pins, and then cut the lace along the hairline.
Step 1: Add light hair oil on wet hair
Step 2: Add setting lotion throughout the wet hair so the curls can last longer.
Step 3: Divide the hair into smaller section with clips.
Step 4: Start with the back, then take a small section of hair and roll and secure the 1/2″ perm rod
Step 5: Repeat rolling with the 1/2″ perm rod until the back, right, and left sides of the hair are complete
Step 6: Then proceed rolling the top with the 3/4″ perm rods until complete
Step 7: Let the wig air dry overnight or use a hood dryer for quicker drying time
Step 8: Take out the rods
Step 9: Begin cutting the hair to desired length in a tapered style. Shorter in the back and sides, and longer up top.
Step 10: Put the wig on and proceed to cut to your style desire.
Step 11: Use the hair pick to fluff
Step 12: Add a part or style to your liking
