Converting a regular wig to a lace front?

I got this wig as a gift (I'd upload a photo but my camera doesn't want to work) and it's a nice wig (the right color, real thick, heat resistant, and all that) but I needed a lace front and this is not. Now since this was a gift I want to keep it but can't use it as is. So basically I want to know is there a way to turn it into a lace front or give it a good hair line?

If you want to make a natural-looking hairline, you could try Malindachan's hairline tutorial:

WOW something I can actually help with!! I did that for my Beast wig since the wig needs to be curly, but her hairline is showing in the front.

Basically I wasn't going to get tight enough curls doing it myself so I had to make a lace front for hers and sew it on the front.
But you are able to do it. I got lucky since I had to make it look like the straight hair continued on to the curls, but I could hide the back under her headband. I had to play with it a bit and... I made the lace front myself so it took forever. But it turned out well!
The before is my icon though it's a bit small, and this is the after

If you need like actual help with it I can do that too :3
