What to Do if your Lace Front Wig is too Big or Small

Wearing a lace front blonde wig can be a great experience for many reasons, but it is not without its drawbacks. One of the most common complaints about lace front wigs is that they are too big or too small.

Here’s what you need to know:

If the wig is too big:

Cut off the lace

You can cut off some of the lace from either the front or back of your wig to make it fit properly. Use small scissors and be careful not to cut any hair if possible. If you can’t find a way to make it fit, this is probably your best option.

Put your wig on backwards

This will give you more length in the back and will help cover up any patches where there was too much hair in one area of your head when you were wearing it before cutting off some of the lace. This might not be an option if you have already cut off some of the lace because of how short your natural hair is, but otherwise it can work well as long as you keep in mind that when you turn your wig back around again, your hair will be sticking out from behind the wig instead of being tucked inside like normal!

Shrinking the Wig

There are a few different ways to try to shrink your lace front wig. The easiest way is to wash it with hot water and shampoo, then put it in the dryer on low heat for about 30 minutes. If that doesn’t work, you can also iron it on high heat for about 15 minutes.

Returning the Wig

If those two methods don’t work, you’ll need to return your wig and get another one that fits better. This depends on where you bought your wig from and how long ago you purchased it, so contact them directly for more information about their return policy.

If the wig is too small:

If your wig is too tight, the lace will be pulled forward on your forehead. This can cause irritation and discomfort. The wig may also become uncomfortable and painful if it is too tight.

Try Washing and Drying it

If your lace front wig is too small, one of the best ways to make it fit better is by washing and drying it. This will help shrink the fibers so they fit better on your head. Also, if your wig has a closure or other piece that might be too large for your head, washing it will help shrink that as well as any padding or mesh in the cap. The key here is not to use heat when drying; just let it air dry on its own without using any heat whatsoever.

Get a new lace front wig cap

If nothing else works, try getting a new lace front wig cap instead of trying to make yours work for now. Sometimes even if you have washed and dried your current cap multiple times with no results whatsoever, there’s still hope for getting an exact replacement from where you bought yours (if possible). If not, also keep in mind that there are many different brands out there with different sizes so


When you are considering whether or not to buy a lace front wig, one of the things you have to know is if the size is suitable for you. If you come across a lace front wig that is too large for you, take deep breaths and make sure your wig is tightly fitted. Put your hair up into a tight ponytail and see if the problem goes away. Also, keep in mind that lace front wigs have some stretch to them which allows them to adjust until it fits properly. The edges may be a little bit loose after wearing it for some time. But this will not be a problem as you can trim it with scissors until they fit better.
