Lace Front Wig - What is It?
With so many varieties of wig on the market, how do you know which one to choose? In this quick guide, we’re detailing everything you need to know about the lace front wig , starting with what it is and how to wear it.
Lace front wigs come with an invisible hairline. This creates a flawless hair style and makes the wig less noticeable. So, if you’re after the natural look and a comfortable fit, the lace front wig is a great option.
While different manufacturers will use different types of lace, they all use a thin lace material. The hairs are individually sewn onto the material. It might sound like a tedious task, but it ensures a high quality, natural looking wig.
The invisible hairline creates the perfect illusion that the wig hair is growing out of your scalp. It looks like a thin, lightweight mesh.
How to wear a lace front wig?
With premium lace front wigs, you shouldn’t have to cut or customise. Simply tie back your hair, put on your wig, and you’re ready to go. However, with some you may need to cut away some excess mesh at the front of the wig.
These wigs should come with adjustable straps for the perfect fit. The easiest way to wear the wig is to place the wig’s hairline in line with your’s. From there, you can secure using combs, or specialist hair glue or tape.
While you should be able to find a lace front wig to match the skin tone on your scalp, you can also apply some foundation to create the perfect tone. If you have dark hair and still want some of your natural hair on show, you can also apply eye liner or eye shadow to the seam at the front of the wig. This will help the wig to seamlessly blend with your natural hair tone.
If you want to keep your wig-wearing a secret, the lace front is by far the best choice. Just make sure to choose human hair for the ultimate real-life hair replica. While synthetic styles are also available, they don’t quite match up to the authentic look and feel that human hair has to offer.
The only thing to bear in mind is the delicate nature of the lace. It will need to be handled with care and kept in a safe space when you’re not wearing it.
How does it compare to the full lace wig?
While wig browsing, you may have also come across the ‘full lace wig’. The full lace option comes with a lace cap designed to cover the whole head, whereas the front lace is designed to cover the front of your head. The lace front gives you more options over your hairline, so if you want to be able to change your parting as often as you like, the front lace is your best bet.
