What to Do When Your Wig Arrives

Lace Fronts Australia Blog - What to do when your wig arrives.

Your new wig from Lace Fronts Australia has arrived! Excitement bubbles as you eagerly unwrap the package, but then comes the moment of truth: what do you do next? Whether you’re new to the world of wigs or a seasoned pro, knowing how to properly care for and style your wig upon its arrival is crucial for ensuring it looks and feels its best. Here’s a comprehensive guide on what to do when your wig arrives.

Prepare Your Tools

 If you opted to receive your wig with the lace uncut, gather your tools: scissors, a comb, and little clips. These essentials will help you trim the lace to fit your desired style.

Trimming the Lace

Using the comb, gently brush the hair back to expose the lace. Find a comfortable position and carefully cut a straight line along the hairline, leaving a bit more lace than you think you need. Take your time and follow the natural curve of your hairline for a seamless finish.

Wear a Wig Cap (if needed)

If you have natural hair, pull it back and secure it with the wig cap provided. This step helps create a smooth base for your wig and ensures a snug fit. If you’re bald or have a shaved head, you can skip this step.

Putting on Your Wig

Now comes the fun part – putting on your wig! We offer plenty of instructional videos on our YouTube channel to guide you through this process. Remember to adjust the wig to your liking and ensure it sits comfortably on your head.

Combat Frizz

Due to shipping conditions, your wig might arrive with some frizziness, especially in humid or hot climates. Fear not! A hot comb is your best friend in taming flyaways and smoothing over the top of your wig for a polished look.


When not in use, store your wig in the satin bag provided by Lace Fronts Australia or on one of their canvas heads. This helps maintain its shape and keeps it free from dust and tangles.

Washing Your Wig

To keep your wig looking fresh, it’s essential to wash it regularly. Lace Fronts Australia recommends washing your wig after 14-20 wears, depending on your usage. Follow their care instructions for the best results and longevity of your wig.

Receiving your wig from Lace Fronts Australia is just the beginning of your journey to fabulous hair. By following these steps and utilizing the resources provided by Lace Fronts Australia, you’ll be well-equipped to style, care for, and rock your new wig with confidence.
