(Don’t know how to do this? Check out this blog post that covers it in great detail.)
A simpler method – known as the Bandaid Method – is a way to achieve a more realistic looking part and will hide the knots, grids or holes on your closure, lace wig or frontal lace quite well.
You will need a Pick or Lift Comb, T-Pins, Tweezers, Scar Away Silicone Scar Sheets, Styrofoam Mannequin head; Skin matched concealer, Concealer brush, and a toothbrush
Place your lace wig on the Styrofoam mannequin head and select where you want to place your part. Using the lifting comb or pick, tidy up your part by separating the hair.
Use a tweezers to pluck out hair strands going down your part. Pluck out just a few at a time to make a clear defined parting. If you remove 2-4 hair strands at a time as you go back it should be just enough to make a clear definition and will not tear the lace. It doesn’t hurt to use caution here. Avoid using unnecessary force.
Wigs have certainly evolved over time. Lace fronts closure, in particular, offers a very natural looking option, as the hair appears to be growing from your own scalp.

If your lace frontal doesn't have baby hair, how to make it look natural? Now we will share a video by Teaira Walker of how to make lace frontal look more natural for girls! Check out these simple tips! Flip your hairpiece inside out and place it back on the mannequin.
This product can be a bit expensive at about roughly $26 a box, but it’s helpful to know that one piece can go a long way, in some cases even last through shampoo and you can double the number (usually 12 to a box) by cutting the sheet in half.
Simply peel and stick directly onto the lace. Remember to stick the sheet down onto the lace about two to three millimeter from the edge where the baby-hair meets the excess lace you’ll be cutting off in order to properly blend your hairline later.
Once it is on, turn your wig over the right way up and using a toothbrush, brush the hair away from the part to tidy it up.
Use your concealer to touch things up and blend your part to match your complexion. Going backwards and forwards along the part, simply dab concealer on the part a little at a time until you’re satisfied that it’s quite well blended.
Once you’re done, your part should now look something like this. The grids and or holes should now be quite well hidden.
This is a great method but if you’re looking for manufacturer’s solution you might look to try Silk Top Wigs. These lace wigs have eradicated the need to manipulate your lace wig before you put it on.
Silk top wigs are growing in popularity because the ventilation technique allows multi-directional parting without worrying about visible knots.
The silk top consists of a layer of lace and silk fabric on the top front of the cap. When the hair is knotted, the knots are below the silk concealed between the layers, making them 100% invisible giving the illusion that the hair is actually growing out of your scalp.
There is no other ventilation technique that creates a more flawless appearance than hidden knots on a silk top, you don’t need to bleach the knots and you don’t need to worry about any other techniques to make the knots invisible or less visible making life much easier.
I hope you found this information useful and that it will help you get that realistic and undetectable look. Go ahead and get close, they won’t be able to tell that it’s a wig.
Anyone who's worn a lace-front knows that the appearance of the hairline is key. While we're not expecting folks to believe you grew your hair by twenty inches overnight, you still want your weave or wig to look as natural as possible.
Lace-front refers to a wig or closure where the hair is singly tied into a base made completely of lace. A good lace-front will mimic the way hair grows out of the scalp.
