One of the most important parts of a wig is the cap. The way it is built has a massive impact on how natural the wig will look on your head. There are many different types of wigs, some with lace and others without it. Within the range of lace wigs, you will also find many variations, like lace front wigs, closure wigs, full frontal wigs, 360 lace wigs and even full lace wigs. Each one of these options have a different size of lace that was used to build that specific wig.
The more lace is used to build a specific wig, the more expensive it will be. This happens because the lace part is normally hand-made and the strands of hair are attached manually to the lace, one by one, to make it look like a real scalp.
What is a Lace Front Wig?
Lace Front wigs have an ear-to-ear lace part that is not so wide as fontal wigs. The lace area is normally 13inch x 1inch wide. Most of lace front wigs will also have a lace part line, which can be placed in the middle or on the sides. Differently from frontal wigs, you can’t choose a different place to part your hair, because it will be pre-determined by where the lace is positioned.
Advantages of Lace Front Wigs.
There are many advantages of investing on a Lace Front wig. The first one would be the easiness to install. All LolaSilk lace front wigs are glueless, which means you don’t need anything like glue or adhesives to keep your wig in place. This type of wig is the best choice for home installations and when you don’t have a lot of time to get ready.
Because Lace front wigs are glueless, it also means that it is very easy to remove it every night before bed time, which allows your scalp to breathe, helping to preserve your own natural hair. Also, extensive exposure to glues and adhesives can cause irritation and even alopecia on your natural hairline.
Another important advantage of lace front wigs is that they are cheaper than other wigs with more quantity of lace, but you can still achieve realistic hairlines and create the most amazing updos like you can with full frontal lace wigs.
What are the disadvantages of lace front wigs?
If you like to change the position of your part line often, maybe you should consider investing on a full-frontal lace wig because you won’t be able to part your hair on a different place using a lace front wig. Another disadvantage is about customization. You can definitely pluck the hairline of a lace front wig, but you won’t be able to pluck it deeper than 1inch. If you really love more dramatic hairlines, lace front wigs might not be the best choice for you.
Just keep in mind that the more plucking you do, the less time your wig will last, because it will be already starting with much thinner hair at the front part.
