How do I remove a Lace Front hairpiece without damaging it?


Adhesive should be sprayed using Lace Release Solvent or alcohol from the hair side of the hairpiece.

Spray until the foundation is wet and then wait for the adhesive to loosen. Carefully peel away the hairpiece from your head.




How should I remove adhesive when it remains on the head after removing the hairpiece?



The adhesive may easily be cleaned from your head using an adhesive remover, solvent or alcohol.



Where is the best place to start releasing your hairpiece when removing it?


There is really no best place to start.

Starting at the front left or right temple, peel up the edge and remove it like you would a large bandage.



How do I avoid pulling hair out of my hairpiece when removing it?



You must completely release the adhesive or tape from your head before attempting to remove your piece.



How can I eliminate adhesive residue that is embedded into the lace?


You should gently remove any remaining adhesive or toupee tape residue with adhesive remover, solvent or alcohol. Be patient and give the solvent time to soften the residue.


Using a lint free rag or micro-fiber towel work well when eliminating residue.


Many customers have also reported using the “Mirror Slide” technique.


Begin by pressing the base against a mirror and slowly slide the base down the mirror.  The adhesive should slide right off the lace and onto the mirror.  Repeat the process until all areas of the base are clean.


After removing the residue, what should be done to help my new hairpiece adhere with a new application of adhesive?


Unfortunately, some removers and solvents are oil based and will leave a residue.

Simply washing the affected areas with shampoo and water will allow the adhesive to stick correctly again!!

The unit must be completely dry before re-applying adhesive.


 HELP!  I have glue in MY hair!!  How can I remove it?

 Apply solvent to your hair and allow the adhesive to loosen.  Gently comb your hair with a fine-tooth comb to remove the glue.  Continue to slowly comb hair and add solvent until the glue is completely removed.  DO NOT comb your hair aggressively.  This will result in hair loss.


How long should I wear my unit without removing it?

Frequent removal is recommended for hygiene purposes.  If you have oily skin or perspire a lot, only wear 1-2 days.  If your skin normally remains dry and cool, then you may wear much longer.


Please remember NOT to neglect your own hair!!  Your hair must be properly washed, maintained and conditioned regularly to promote growth and sustain health.

I ordered a custom Lace Front wig from a vendor and it did not include baby hair around the perimeter.  Should I send it back?


We do not recommend sending your Lace Front wig back to the vendor.  It will cost you additional time and money to forward the wig back.  We would suggest that you ventilate the baby hair yourself.  If you are familiar with the hair ventilation technique, it will be easy to trim some of the hair from the wig and ventilate the baby hair around the perimeter.


I have a Lace Front wig unit and it is beautiful, but it does not match my hairline.  What should I do?


If you are ordering a custom Lace Front wig, the best thing to do is to send a head template to the vendor/seller.  This will ensure the appropriate fit.   However, most companies sell stock units and pre-made units.  If this is the case you can do the following:


  1. If the hairline needs to be moved back, gently pluck away the individual strands of hair until the wig match your hairline.
  2. If you need more hair around the hairline, you can ventilate the hair into the lace yourself.   This will save you much time and money.


Is there anyway to attach a Lace Front Wig without adhesives?


Yes.   You can have your stylist sew the custom wig to your head and around your hairline.   However, we do not recommend this technique if you have weak, thinning hair or suffering from any type of alopecia.


I received a Remy Human Hair wig and I noticed that it gets tangled easily.


There is a great solution for that problem.   It is called The Clorox Scrub. 




I ordered the package of French Lace and the holes are very tiny.  It seems really difficult for me to attach the hair to the lace.


The French Lace is indeed described as "Invisible Lace".   The ventilation process takes much patience.  Do not get discouraged. Practice makes perfect!   Be sure to have the lace secured to a wig head / block so that it only allows minimal movement.   Use great lighting so that you can see the holes.   If you are still unable to see the holes, place a dark blue tape or material under the lace so that you can view it better.



On occasion, the ventilating needle snags the lace.  Is the needle defective?


No.  The needle is not defective.  There is a small hook at the very tip of the needle.   If the needle is held incorrectly, it will snag everything it comes in contact with.   To prevent this, hold the ventilating needle at a slight angle when attaching hair to the lace.   Also, grab the correct number of hair strands that correspond with your needle.  Needle #2 will grab two strands of hair.  Needle #3 will grab three strands of hair and so on.



I made a custom hair template and it turned out great.  Now I am ready to place the template on my head and it won't fit. What happened?


The custom template is designed to fit your head tightly but comfortably.   When making your template, style your hair the way you plan to wear it under the wig.   Any variation in hairstyles will affect the fitting of the template.   Most clients prefer to style their hair in an under-handed french braid so that the Lace Front wig will lay flat on the head.    By all means, do not create a head template on a wig head.   Why?  Because the template will only fit the wig head--not your head.   If you need to make a template on a head other than your own, use a canvas wig block (in the appropriate size, of course).   Measure each point of your head and transfer them to the wig block.  This method will give you measurements as if you had the template on your own head.
