How to Ventilate (or Add Hair to) a Lacefront Wig
I’ve seen a lot of really creative methods for adding realistic hairlines to wigs, but in my personal opinion, nothing beats a good lacefront wig! With lacefronts starting to be offered in a rainbow of colors, cosplayers have a lot more options to work with than they did even a few years ago.

It’s accomplished with a ventilating needle or latch hook, and much less time consuming than threading individual wig hairs through a conventional hand-sewing needle. Ventilating kits are relatively inexpensive ($10-$20) and can make adding hair to a lacefront wig a fairly simple, if not tedious, task.
