There was a time when lace front wigs were reserved for the Hollywood movie industry. Today, it is one of the most popular wigs used and is more affordable than ever. And why wouldn’t they be? Unlike traditional wigs, lace front wigs are light weighted, comfortable, and natural looking if you wear it correctly.
What is Lace Front?
As the name suggests, lace front means that a sheer lace panel is only in the front part of the wig. With a high-quality lace, it can seamlessly blend with your skin tone and give off the impression of a natural scalp.
In addition to the lace, strands of hair or fiber are also manually tied into the lace to give the illusion of natural hair growth. Want to know more about this hand tying process, check out our recent article on hand-tied wigs.
To create an even more realistic look, some manufacturers would attach baby hair onto the wig to help hide the lace!
Durable, comfortable, and easy to put on. Lace front wigs give you the coverage you need plus styling options you want. It's no wonder Hollywood stars love them so much.
