The in and outs of a Lace Front Wig

  • Lace front wigs are designed with a sheer lace base which is attached in the front beyond the hairline of the wig.
  • The hair used to make the wig is usually tied by hand to a sheer lace base. On the other hand the Full lace wigs usually have a base which is entirely made from lace.
  • But the lace front wig is more popular, where the sheer lace is only at the front near the visible hairline.
  • The rest of the lace front wig is made using less fragile material so that it does not rip or tear easily.

Lace front wigs - the facts:

  • Lace front wigs are designed such that they do not envelope your entire head.
  • The ones that do envelop the entire head are the full lace wigs.
  • The lace front wigs only cover the front of the head and run from ear to ear. The way this works is that the wigs are custom fitted to a person's head.
  • They can be trimmed and then temporarily glued to the person's skin around their hairline.
  • These wigs are designed such that they are to detect. It will be impossible for anyone to figure out where the lace starts or ends. It is so undetectable that even the trained eye of a hair stylist will not be able to detect that you are wearing a wig.
  • It is only when they actually lay their hands on your hair that they would find out.
  • The lace front wigs can either be synthetic hair or human hair.
  • The advantage of using human hair wigs is that they look more natural and are easier to style and maintain.
  • They are designed such that they blend with the wearer's natural skin.
  • Many front lace wigs have some form of baby hair around the temple area that is used to effectively hide any visible signs of lace on the forehead.  This results in making the hairline look more realistic.
  • The additional advantage being that with the hair knotted into the lace it will give an illusion that it is growing from the scalp.
  • As far as substance used to attach the wig to the wearer's hair is concerned, and adhesive that is safe for human use is applied on the front lace wig.
  • Such a process is quite effective and the wig will ideally stay bonded for a up to a week.
  • Not everyone wears their hair the same way. In fact according to studies carried out a different hair style suits different face shapes. For example if you have an oval face many different types of hairstyles can suit you from super short to long sweeping layers. But I digress.
  • The point of the matter being that different people will require their wigs to be in different sizes and shapes.
  • To complement this front lace wigs are available in many different shapes and sizes.
  • The wigs are perceived as something that is ready made, but it is a little known fact that wigs can also be custom made depending on the personal preferences of the buyer.
  • The hair complements the persons facial features and hence you should choose our wig wisely and even get some advice if necessary. 

Benefits of Front Lace Wig:


Besides looking fabulous the front lace wigs have many advantages.
  • They fit very nicely; they have an ability to contour to a wearer's head.
  • They provide natural looking parting hair which is mainly due to the mesh lace used in the wigs.
  • These wigs have the amazing ability to be textured according to preference.
  • The buyer also has the option of maintaining straight, wavy or curly hair.
  • There are many colors available as well for the buyer to choose from like blond, red, black or brunette to name a few.
  • If you prefer long hair then that too is not an issue since the wigs are available in many different sizes as well.
  • These wigs do not get damaged easily but even they are damaged due to some or the other reason, they can be repaired with little or no effort.

What to expect when buying a lace front wig:

  • When you actually set out to buy a lace front wig you will be confronted with many different options.
  • Thus at this stage it is necessary for you to have a clear picture in mind of the type of wig that meets your unique requirements.
  • It is likely that you may be confused between the two wigs, full lace wig and lace front wig. But if thinking with a clear mind you will quickly realize that both the wigs have unique qualities and characteristics.  For example if you know the type of hair style that you like to wear as well as the quality and material ( for example either human or synthetic) then the choices will start to narrow down till you find your perfect wig.
  • It is important to make a note of the fact that the higher the quality of the wig the more they tend to cost. Human hair wigs for example tend to be slightly more expensive but they also come with many advantages too, like heat resistance for one.
  • Elevate Styles is one such place where you are sure to find the wig of your choice. There are plenty of options available and in case you don't find what you are looking for you can even put in a special request.
