Preparation

Clip all hair and baby hair away from the edge of the wig. This will prevent the hair from getting stuck in the glue when applying the unit.
Cautiously cut the lace around the entire hairline. You may cut all the lace off or you can leave a little of the lace if you feel more comfortable doing so. **Make sure all baby hair is carefully pinned back so it is not cut.
*OPTIONAL*: When you have completed cutting the lace around the entire perimeter, you can spray Block on the edge of the lace to prevent it from fraying. (Please be sure to use this sparingly, because it can try white if you use too much.)
 
Start with clean hair. Either braid hair in small cornrows, or tightly wrap your hair for a flat look
Clean the skin with soap and water (not oil based cleansers)
Remove oils from the skin with an alcohol based cleaner. Your wig will not stick to an oily surface.
Do not use cotton wool or fluffy material on your hair line for wig lace, the fluffy will stick and be difficult to remove
Apply a thin layer of skin protectant to the  skin around the perimeter of the hairline. This will act as a barrier between your skin and the adhesive. (This step is very important for those who workout, swim or those with sensitive skin.
Allow the skin protectant to dry completely.

*RECOMMENDED* For those with hair, put on a flesh-toned wig cap, and line it up with your hairline, so it is completely covered. This will work as a protective layer for your hair, and will also create a scalp illusion under your hairline. (Make sure the wig cap is pulled taught onto your hairline.) FYI: To prevent the wig cap from slipping, allow the glue and/or tape to overlap onto the nylon stocking cap or loosely stitch the cap in place

Tape Application

Make sure your skin, hair and wig are clean and dry.
Cut the tape into desired shapes, you want the tape to contour your hairline.
Peel the paper from one side of the double-sided tape and apply the strips of tape around the perimeter of the lace wig. Press firmly into place. *IMPORTANT* You should leave small spaces between the tape to allow for water to escape, if you will be wearing this for extended periods of time.

Position the lace wig on head, and starting with the center, go from side to side, pressing the wig down in sections with a fine tooth comb. Press firmly.
When you have completed the application process, tie down your hairline with a silk or satin scarf. This will allow the glue to set and dry properly. You may also sit under a dryer during this step to aide in the drying process.
