I use the the hair grip, which really works. There is feedback somewhere on this forum about it. With the hairgrip I only on use the comb in the back of the wig and I put the comb under the hair grip (not into my hair). I use the tan one.

OP, I think it would be best to sew an elastic band to both sides of your lace frontal so it lays flat and snug. Then you should sew down the back of the wig. The stitches don't have to be super tight to wear it's difficult to remove every night. But you do want the stitches secure enough so the wig doesn't fall off.

Knowing this, I'll probably never wear a u-part ugh

I always thought combs were the safest application


You can still wear a u part wig but you would have to sew it down to avoid applying the wig with wig combs.

Blue liner tape in the front, elastic band in the back.  USE SKIN PROTECTOR.  I've been doing this 5 years, no skin or edges issues.  I remove every night.

I'd never whip my wig around without taping the front down!  But that's me.

Headbaands that go all the way around the head are useful, too.  Something to pin to.
