How to Put a Lace Front Wig in a Ponytail – Two Ways

Are you thinking about putting your lace front wig into a ponytail? Cool! You have two great options: keeping it low (and/or to the side) or wearing a sky-high and sleek ponytail like Ariana Grande.

Low/Side Ponytails

Pulling your lace front wig into a low or side ponytail is a cinch.

You don’t need to do anything special or unique.

Simply grab your hair, pull it back into the desired area, and wrap your elastic hair band around the hair.

High Ponytails

There’s nothing chicer than a high ponytail – unless, of course, everyone can see the lace at the nape of your neck, and that’s precisely the issue when it comes to wearing a high ponytail with a lace front wig.

The other issue is that a high ponytail will tug on the wig, which can lead to unwanted sliding.

That doesn’t mean it’s not possible, though.

Here are some great tips for wearing your lace front wig in a high ponytail. 

1. Consider Using a Wig Cap

A wig cap is an excellent way to keep a high ponytail secure while also hiding the lace. Apply the wig cap, then secure the front lace wig to the wig cap. Style your hair into a high ponytail as desired.

2. Or a Wig Band

Applying a wig grip band is another great way to secure your high ponytail with a lace front wig. This will keep the high ponytail secure and stop the wig from sliding backward – which is a definite problem when wearing a lace front wig in a high ponytail.

3. Conceal the Lace

Using a wig cap or a wig band is an excellent way to ensure the high ponytail doesn’t play a game of slip n’ slide. However, you’re not in the clear just yet.

We still need to discuss that pesky lace saying “Hello!” at the nape of your neck.

The best way to conceal it is to use the preferred product to disguise the lace on your head/face. Simply apply the product to blend the lace with your natural skin tone. That way, it won’t be noticeable, and you can rock your awesome high ponytail everywhere.
