Among all lace front wigs, the 13×4 lace front wig stands out as one of the most commonly used. This type of lace front gives you the desired thickness and length to admirer’s look. As with the general Lace front wigs, the 13×4 lace front wig is also beautiful and looks natural. It’s also not too long, so you wouldn’t have people doubting if it’s a wig or natural hair.

The lace in a 13×4 lace front wig is there to align with your skin. That’s why most manufacturers use a transparent lace front. That way, the lace assumes whatever tone your skin gives it – thereby giving it the most natural look possible. While the lace is the part of the wig that makes it look natural, it can also be the part that can make it look synthetic.

If you have the lace of the wig protruding forward, there is no way people would not know it is a wig. Luckily, fixing a protruding lace in your lace front wig is a simple process. All you need is to follow the steps we will discuss in this article.

Get necessary materials

Before you can cut off the lace in your lace front wig, you will need some materials. Without these materials, it’s possible you still get it done, but you are risking damaging the whole wig itself. The materials required are the headstand or dummy for easy workability, the scissors for the actual cutting process, and a mirror to check how good your work is.

Wear the wig to visualize

To know how much you need to cut, you have to check the wig, and there is no better place to check than on your head. Some people have straight hairlines, while some have curved ones. If you do not cut it right, you wouldn’t like to wear a wig. Remember, you’re trying to cut off the protruding lace and not all of the lace. Therefore, when you wear it, you can see how much lace is on the wig and how you can cut it. If you have a pen or marker, you can get the point of reference on the lace.

Wear wig on dummy

You will be doing most of the cutting with the dummy head.  By working on the dummy head, you are making the process easier. First, you should wear the wig on the dummy precisely the way you would love to wear your wig. As much as possible, try to get the hair out of the way. You can tie the hair to the back or hold it at the back with a suitable hair clip.

Cut carefully

The lace in your lace front wig is a central part of the wig, so you don’t want to make any mistakes. The best way to cut is to mark out where you want to cut and cut carefully. You can even test the wig at intervals to check if you are cutting it right.


Lace front wigs are probably the most common for their beauty and natural appearance from the lace. Cutting that lace may be necessary, but you have to be careful. You can follow the steps in this guide!
