Ok so I half asleep when I first watched this video but when I watched again I am not sure if i think her method is a good one or just a stupid one because she is running the risk of ripping her lace. But let me know what you think. I know a lot of people use tweezers to thin their wig but this is much faster after way to achieve similar result. Ok stupid forum is not letting post this video so here is the link...sorry about that ladies.

I've gotten impatient and done something similar without having any tearing. I think it all depends on the quality of the lace and not pulling more than a few strands at a time. I wouldn't try it with a unit from a vendor who's lace I wasn't sure was durable enough to handle it. 

I did kind of like the idea of slitting the lace at the hairline to give it more of an uneven hairline. I think I might try that with Got2be and a beater just to see how it looks.

I don't think the ending result was too bad but I do not know if I would take the chance of ripping my wig. But damm that tweezing process sure takes a long too

I've always been a fan of lighter density - especially around the hairline. However, her thinner hairline didn't look natural to me. I think she drastically shortened the life of her unit. What is she going to do when when the hairline naturally thins over time? If she had thinned it differently that unit could have lasted for several years with proper care and maintenance.

all of this --to be honest I did try the pullout method that she did but I do it in a downward pull with literally a couple of hairs at a time as I don't like to see bald spots in a lace wig...I like our own ms sexibeach video better as it thins it evenly for a more uniform appearance
