First place the wig on the head of the mannequin, or wear it on your own head. This step can be based on your own preferences. If you put the wig on the head of the mannequin, you should fix the hair with hairpins to ensure that the lace front wig will not fall off when you trim the lace. If you wear the wig on your head, you can pull the wig forward a little after wearing it, so that the hairline of your wig slightly exceeds the part of your hairline. The lace should extend beyond your natural hairline. Then fix the wig to make sure it doesn’t swing back and forth on your head.

Step 2:Map Out The Hairline
The best technique for cutting lace wigs is to draw a line along your hairline, which can guide you where to cut.

If the scissors you use are not too sharp, they will pull the lace, which will damage the lace. When cutting, the lace should be straightened to avoid accidental cutting of excessive lace. Trim along the previously drawn hairline. If you are a novice lace cutter and are not confident to trim the lace at once, you can cut the lace into small pieces, which can make you cut the lace easily.
