  1. What is Frontal Wig Construction?

Before explaining the steps of making a frontal wig. I would like to mention the basic construction of frontal wigs. Thus, you can be informed about the main parts of frontal wigs.

A frontal wig consists of two main parts: the weaving part and the lace part.  

The weaving part also consists of two main parts: net cap and hair curtain. One sews the hair curtain on the net cap. Here, hair wefts are sewn layer by layer. Different companies have different sewing styles. Some companies prefer to sew the wefts from the top to the bottom. Others like to sew from the bottom to the top.

The lace part is placed on your head. You secure this part there using glue or pins.  If you want your lace to be invisible and undetectable, you cut the lace so that it will fit into your natural hairline.

  1. Getting prepared for making a Frontal Wig.

Select the Texture you like

There are different hairstyles you may choose such as straight, bob, curly, blonde or red. You should make up your mind on which one you like to choose and, only after that, start to make your frontal wig.

Select the Cap that suits your Head

You should measure your head to choose a suitable cap for your head. The cap should not be too tight or too loose. Also, choosing the right material from which the cap is made is important for feeling comfortable when you wear your wig.

Select the Lace  that can go with your Skin

If you choose lace different from your skin color, it will be visible on your forehead, so people will easily notice that you are wearing a wig. To avoid this situation, you should choose the lace that goes with your skin color. Thus, the lace melts into your skin and becomes unnoticeable.

Buy Best Quality Materials

Even you buy the best quality, thus the most expensive, materials for making your frontal wig, the total price you will pay would be far less than the cost of a high-quality frontal wig. If you are spending your time, energy and money to make a frontal wig, then try to make the best one, using best quality materials.   

  1. Steps of making a Frontal Wig

Step 1: Make the Lace Frontal Ready

First, you should determine where to place the lace frontal on your head. Find out how far the lace frontal should be from your natural hairline using a tape measure. Again, measure the distance from one ear to another. When you do these, your hair should be flat. Wetting your hair can be a good idea to flatten your hair.

Then, cover your head with plastic wrap. Try to make it as tight as you can. Mark your natural hairline on the wrap using a pencil. Highlight the line that you draw using tape.

Next, Remove the plastic wrap from your head and wrap it over the wig head. Model the pattern that you obtain from your head on the wig head using pins. Cut the lace according to this pattern, but it should be a bit longer than the pattern. Because you may need extra lace in the following steps.

Finally, you should test the lace that you have cut according to your natural hairline on both the wig head and your own head and make necessary adjustments.

Step 2: Sew the Lace and Hair Bundles to the Cap

 Place the cap on the wig head. Secure the lace frontal on the cap using pins. Style the lace frontal as you wish in this position. Following this, stitch the lace front to the cap using a needle starting from the middle to the sides.

Now, it is time to attach hair bundles. Sew them to the back of the cap using a needle again. Sew each bundle at an upper position on the cap until you reach the lace frontal. When you do this, do not hurry and take your time.

In the end, cut the excess cap, which is longer than the lace frontal. The whole process will take you a couple of hours. Check on the wig head whether the wig that you have just made fits into your natural hairline. Make some adjustments if it is necessary. Check the same on your head as well.

The last thing that you should do in this step is to check if there is excess lace. If so, trim the lace. Now, you are ready for the next step.  

Step 3: Secure your Frontal Wig onto your Head

It is now time to wear your wig. You are excited, aren’t you?

First of all, wash your face and neck. You can apply a skin oil and scalp protector against adverse effects of adhesives. Then, Pull back your natural hair in the form of a ponytail or a bun. It is possible for you to wear a cap if you wish below your wig.

After those preparations, it is now time to secure your wig onto your head. Use some adhesive to stick your wig. You can also use pins for this process if you use a cap.  Check your wig if it fits into your head and looks natural. If you wish, you may let some of your natural hair be seen. Style your wig and enjoy.

Optional Stage

If you want, you can dye or bleach the lace frontal before you make your wig.    

Making a frontal lace is as easy as that. Now, you can buy the materials for making a frontal wig, follow the steps in this guide, watch more videos on YouTube for elaboration and make your frontal wig.
