Cut away the lace all around the front and sides of the lace wig using a long fluid scissors strokes to avoid the jagged edges. It is better t cut away small portions of the lace instead of all of it at once since cutting away too much lace may ruin the wig.
Remove the center-marking clip while keeping the hair of the lace wig clipped back and adjust the clips if necessary.


Cut the lace back towards the beginning f the hairline in the front. It should be cut back all the way to the hairline since the lace on the forehead will be the more visible. Pull the lace of the wig tight with your fingers while cutting to ensure even and smooth strokes.
