Human hair lace front wigs provide an affordable and efficient way to change your looking. They are also a easy option for people who lost their hair or thin hair. However, there remains the problems of keeping a wig in place while going about your normal business. There are some easy and affordable options to ensure that your lace front wig stays on and does not fly off in some embarrassing occasions.
Many women who wear lace front wigs choose to use wig glue because when correctly applied, it holds a wig in place for anywhere between one and five days. Wig glue is available in hair supply shops and also can be purchased online. To use, clean the area where glue will be applied with rubbing alcohol. Apply the glue to the perimeter of head, around the hairline in a thin line. Place the edge of your lace front wig on the outer edge of the glue and press it in, leaving it to dry and securely seal. To safely remove the glue, apply a glue solvent made specifically for wig glue and lift the wig off gently.
Although wig glue secures lace front wig to your head, some feel the application cumbersome and messy. Consequently, many wearers prefer tape to hold their wig. It can be purchased at beauty supply stores or from online stores. Wig tape, which is double-sided, can be applied around the perimeter of head scalp, where the edge of the wig will rest on it. Once in place, the lace front wig should be gently applied onto the tape and let it dry.
Combs and clips:
Combs and clips are an increasingly common way to secure lace front wigs.

Combs and clips, on the other hand, do not cause such problems and are easy to apply and remove. To use this method, place your lace front wig in exactly the position you want it to remain. Insert two or more clips at either temple and then some around the nape at the back of your head. Also, place one clip on each side behind each ear. Ensure that the clips are the same color or close to the color of your wig, and camouflage them with hair so that they are invisible.

With this method, the wig will lay flat on your head firmly.
