How to cut off the extra lace for a seamless hairline?
Hi there, we are UWigs. Today's blog will show you some best techniques for cutting the lace and what to use for cutting, especially if you're working with transparent lace wigs.
If you are a beginner at cutting the lace, and you don't know what to do when it comes to the lace, you get the extra lace all around the cap, the lace can hang over the ears, or the cap can be too big. So keep on reading, we will show you how to adjust that.
Choose the best scissors.
If you plan to use just some shears, make sure they are very sharp. Small scissors would be better because it's going to help you get that detail. Besides, we also want to use a razor. It will help you get as close as possible to the hairline.
Step 1: Cut the lace in the back of the wig off
As far as the lace in the back, we don't need it. So we want to make sure that we get rid of the extra lace in the back of the cap before applying the lace wig. That way, we won't have excess lace hanging at the back of our neck. So cut away that lace in the back before putting on the lace wig.
Step 2: Pressing out the hair around the hairline
Ensure all of the hair is pushed out of the way before cutting the lace in the front.
Step 3: Cut the ear tab area properly
First of all, we use a regular shear to cut the ear tab area properly. Because this area is not so important, it is not going to be seen. And when doing this, make sure you're not cutting it wrong because we don't want to lose a chunk of hair.
I know you may have had this problem, where sometimes you glue down your lace front wig, you have a perfect application of your lace front wig. However, the area around the ear is the first to lifts, which means that you may not have cut the lace deep enough, where it'll go over the ear.
Step 4: Cut the front lace
Make sure that hair is pushed out of the way before cutting. If you plan to tweeze your hairline or anything, it would better do that before cutting the lace off. Because after you cut the lace off, it makes it a little bit more difficult.
Put a slit in the middle of this lace at first but not touch the hairline at all. And then put a slit on the left and the right sides. Then, pull the lace up and start where we put the slits and gently snip to get as close to the hairline as possible. Use the ends of the shears instead of taking the entire scissor. Because it's going to have lace leftover, we don't want leftover, so use the ends of these shears. And most importantly, cut it gently, making sure not to cut off the sideburn area.
That is all you need to know about cutting extra lace off around ears, front, and back.
