To install lace front short wigs like bob lace front wigs is easier than to install full wigs, since a lace front wig does not reach all the way around to the nape of the neck.
Once a wig is complete, the excess lace that hangs over the forehead must be trimmed back into the wig for the most natural look. This is a delicate process that takes a steady hand, a good pair of scissors and a lot of patience. Find the center of the front of the lace wig and slide the thin hair clip vertically to mark the position. There should be two even lace pieces on each side of the clip. Clip the hair on either side of the center-marking clip back using the two large hair clips. This will keep any stray hairs from being cut. It is best to cut away small portions of lace instead of all of it at once, since cutting away too much lace will ruin the wig. Cut the lace back towards the beginning of the hairline in the front. Trim the sides of the lace front wig so that only about an eighth-inch of lace protrudes out from under the hairline. Double check the trimmed lace to ensure that there are no jagged edges. Make sure the lace is cut completely even, especially around the forehead area.
