Everything You Need to Know About Front Lace Wigs


Lace Wigs

There are many reasons to wear a wig. Maybe you suffer from hair loss, or maybe you like how it looks on you! Selecting the right wig for the right occasion can give you so much confidence, but there is also a stunning variety of options available, which can be extremely intimidating, especially if you’re new to the wondrous world of wigs.

One of the wigs that are popular for giving an all-natural look is front lace wigs. Here’s a guide that can help you find the right wig.

What Are Front Lace Wigs?

Lace wigs are available in a variety of styles. A front lace wig contains sheer lace around the front area that traces your hairline and lays along the forehead.

The lace at the front of these wigs is designed to replicate your hairline, adding realism to your style and looking most natural when it blends in with your skin tone.

However, you must remember that, as the name suggests, there is lace only towards the front of the wig. And so, the blending that provides the natural look is only on the front of the wig. Commonly, the blending effect will only be visible on your forehead and 2 to 3 inches behind your hairline.

How Are They Made?

These wigs are created by affixing a thin, naturally hued lace to a wig cap and attaching strands of hair through the holes to allow them to flow freely like natural hair.

The remainder of the cap is composed of a tougher, more lasting material since lace can rip and would not produce an entire robust hat. Any extra lace is clipped to match the natural hairline contour.

What Is the Difference between Front Lace Wigs and Regular Wigs?

A front lace wig, as mentioned before, has hairs that are painstakingly hand-tied into a thin, practically undetectable lace material at the front hairline. This characteristic creates the appearance that the hairs are sprouting directly from the scalp, resulting in a highly natural-looking hairline.

A basic cap wig, however, is just a standard wig with hair wefts attached to the whole cap. The front "hairline" will have a seam or blunt edge, giving the impression that the hair begins suddenly.

How to Wear a Front Lace Wig

For the lace to blend in with your skin, you’re going to have to either apply adhesive to it. So before you even think about putting on your front lace wig, it is important that you do a skin test with the adhesive of your choice. If there is no reaction to it, you can start by flattening the hair onto your head. Wig caps can be really handy here, but simply using several pins will also do if you don't have one.

Clean the area around your hairline and your forehead, and then it’s time to fit the wig.

Start by tilting your head forward slightly, and then setting the wig to your forehead. You should slip the wig with a front-to-back motion, like you would with a bathing cap. Tilt your head back until the wig is properly on, and align it to your real hairline. Feel free to tuck in any stray hairs as well.

Why Use Them?

The appearance of hair growing from a natural hairline is one of the wig’s most appealing features. It's practically hard to tell that the wearer is wearing a wig at all as the wig appears so natural! Another great thing about front lace wigs is their variety in terms of styling.

Picking the right wig might be challenging, but once you've found "the one," it'll quickly become one of your favourite accessories.
