This lace front wig hairstyle is perfect for women in love with a neat look! When in a ponytail, hair is pulled away from your face and secured at the back of your head with a hair tie or a clip. Most women either tie the hair at the base of the neck or a few inches above.
Some women think that the ponytail look is impossible to achieve with a lace front wig but it is actually perfectly possible. Here is what you need to do:
- Attach your lace front wig to your scalp
- Leave a few loose strands of your natural hair poking out of your wig from the back and sides
- Collect all the wig hair and secure it with a cloth hairband
- Position the loose strands of your natural hair around the lace front wig to complete the look
