How Long Does a Lace Front Wig Install Last?

A lace wig installation can last anywhere from a few hours to a full day, depending on the type of installation method being used and the skill level of the stylist.

Choose The Best Install Technique For You

There are several different methods that can be used to install a lace wig, including using lace adhesive (glue)  installation or glueless wig installations using extra hold hairsprays or gels.

1-2 Week Hold - Lace Adhesive (Glue) Wig Installation

The adhesive or glue wig installation is a longer lasting option that involves attaching the wig to the front of the head using a special glue or tape formulated to attach the lace piece to the skin. This type of installation can take anywhere from 2-4 hours to complete, and will look the most natural as it will look as if the hairs attached to the lace piece are coming from the scalp - the ultimate "melt" look! To remove this installation, gently saturate the lace are with an alcohol until the glue completely loosens and gently slides off the skin.

1-2 Day Hold - Glueless Wig Installation

The glueless wig installation is a quick and easy option that does not require any glue or tape. Instead, the wig is secured to the head using adjustable straps and combs. This type of installation can take as little as 30 minutes to complete, and is a great option for those who want a quick and easy installation without the hassle of glue or tape. Applying an extra hold hairspray or gel in a thin layer across the lace piece will give you extra security for a 1-2 day wear. This glueless installation method will easily be removed with water.

Lace Maintenance Is Key

In addition to the installation time, it's important to note that the longevity of a lace wig depends on how well you care for it. Proper maintenance, such as regular cleaning, conditioning, and styling, can help prolong the life of your wig and ensure that it looks its best for as long as possible.


Overall, the length of time it takes to install a lace wig can vary depending on the method being used and the skill level of the stylist. It's important to choose an installation method that works best for your needs and budget, and when you're unsure, to work with a skilled stylist who can ensure that your wig is installed properly and looks natural.
