  1. What is a Glueless Wig?

A glueless wig, as the name suggests, is a lace front wig that is made to be worn without the use of glue to secure the lace. Most glueless wigs will use another method to secure the wig to your head and will feature lace that easily blends into the skin.

  7. Cut Your Lace in a Zig-Zag Motion

Cutting straight across will make it more likely to lift, so cut your lace in a zig-zag or wave motion to make it easier to blend.

  1. Blend The Lace To Your Skin Color

This is possibly the most crucial step. You have to make sure that the color of your lace blends in with your skin color to a tee. Use your foundation, concealer, powder or tinted spray to get your lace to the color you want. Adjust as necessary until you get an almost perfect match.

  1. Install an Elastic Band

In case your wig doesn’t already come with an elastic band sewn in, add one yourself. Now, be careful not to make the band too tight because this will cause headaches, and don’t make it too loose either because that won’t stretch your lace enough to make it blend with your skin.

  1. Use a Wig Grip

Wig grips are bands that go around your whole head, often made of silicone or another material designed to grip, that help keep your wig in place all day. They work by increasing the amount of friction on the inside of your wig. This way, the wig is less likely to slip back or fall off. Obviously, even though the hold will meet most women’s day-to-day needs, it’s not as strong as the one you would get from using glue, so be careful not to get into any fights in this one.

  1. Rock A Middle Part with Some Longer Bangs

Generally, middle-part wigs are more likely to lift on the sides rather than at the center. So, if you can get a unit with longer bangs on the side, you’ll be able to hide the sides of your wig and get away with not wearing any glue.
