I don't know. I wish I could help. I don't see how you could though, but have you tried applying it behind the hairline? You can also custom order a u-part lace wig.

I thought I remembered reading a thread where someone has created a u-part out of a lace wig, and reinforced the edges by sewing around the border with clear thread.  I wonder if buying some PU material to sew around the border would work?

Maybe add ribbon instead of the PU.  You can buy the pre-made ribbon from a fabric store.

I havent found a thread on lace u part wigs. I was thinking I could just cut the "U" section and maybe it wouldnt tear up. or maybe if I reinforce the edges with some frey stop....what yall think?

Yes it can be cut into whatever you want, but be heavy on the fray block & weft sealant.

I was looking at the website that Syleena Johnson has on her collection of U part wigs. she wears them in the show "R&B Divas" the website is renownhair. I liked the full lace u part she has but to get the hair texture I want(relaxed straight) and the length(14inch) its going to cost about $500! I looked at the regular cap wigs on the site and i am not sure if i like the wefted cap construction. i cant ind any sites or companies that have a full lace U part wig with a kinky straight or relaxed texture hair..

OP, there are CVs who will make a custom U-part wig for you.  Roman comes to mind, for example.

I ordered from the syleena Johnson collection from the clearance section. the wig was nice but it was too big, I guess I have an extra small head especially when I braid it into a beehive so I can braid down the u-part wig. I shouldave ordered custom so i wouldnt have had to cut the wig up so much. I dont have Roman's contact info to order from him. I want to order another one to my specifications.
