What Is A Lace Front Wig?

If you’re new to buying a wig, you might be confused by all the different terminology and types of wigs out there. Don’t worry, we’ll save you the headache of researching different websites for the right description. In this post, we’ll be talking about the lace front wig. We’ll tell you what it is, what styles it’s best for and what the benefits are, of wearing a lace front wig. So, you know when and where you can wear your wigs.

What Is A Lace Front Wig?

If you’ve been searching around the internet for lace wigs, you’ll find all different types, from 360-lace, full lace, lace closures and even lace front wigs. Each one is different and has their own unique uses. For example, a full lace wig and a 360-lace wig are perfect for styling hair into braids, buns, and all sorts of different hairstyles.

A lace front wig, however, is perfect for those who like looser hairstyles, like low ponytails, very loose braids or small braid details that won’t affect the rest of the hair. Not only that, but a lace front wig has a sheer piece of lace attached to the front of the wig. This helps it to blend in with your skin, and makes the wig look more natural than regular costume-shop synthetic wigs.

How Are Lace Front Wigs Made?

Unlike full lace wigs, which are completed made from lace material, a lace front wig will be made with a wig cap, which is made of a thicker material. These wig caps can be useful, as they protect sensitive scalps and can hold a wig in place. After all, as the day wears on, a wig can easily move from its original placement. Not only is this inconvenient to the wearer, it can also be uncomfortable to wear.

With a wig cap, that’s not a problem. It’ll keep the wig in place, while still protecting the sensitive scalp. What makes a lace front wig unique is the piece of mesh lace attached at the front of the wig. This not only helps the hairline of the wig to match your own, but it also allows your natural, smaller baby hairs to peek through, to disguise the lace itself.

The Benefits of Wearing A Lace Front Wig

There are quite a number of benefits to wearing a wig in general, but particularly with lace front wigs, there are a few, ranging from breathable materials to easy applications and even the range of hairstyles you could do with a lace front wig.

Breathable Material

More often than not, a synthetic wig cap will be itchy, thick, and generally uncomfortable. They are also made with materials that don’t allow your scalp to breathe. However, with lace front wigs, you will find that their wig caps, the lace mesh and the wig itself are made of breathable material, allowing air to circulate to and around the scalp, so your head can stay cool and fresh throughout the day.

Natural Looking Cap

Usually, a wig cap isn’t dyed at all, and either you’ll get caps that are too dark for your head or just plain black. When it comes to wearing a lace front wig, you don’t need to worry. These wigs tend to utilise wig caps that are close to your natural skin colour. So, you don’t have to worry about it looking too obvious.

Easy Application

Lace front wigs are generally easy to wear. There are many options you can explore, when securing your wig to your head. You can choose to use tape, elastic bands, or even cosmetic glue. You can even secure it with just an elastic band and a silk scarf. There are many tutorials online to show you how it’s done.

Varied Hairstyles

There are many ways you can style your hair, with lace front wigs, from simply having it down, to styling it with a fringe, or even using loose hairdos, like loose braids, buns or even tie it up with a silk scarf, if you’re too lazy to glue or tape the wig to your head. The possibilities are endless, and you’ll not only have voluminous hair, but hair that you can work with, to create those complicated hairstyles you see online.

Your Favourite Colour Any Time

One of the most convenient things about wearing a wig is that you can change your hair colour on a whim. Tired of your natural black, browns or blondes? Why not try a hot pink wig on Wednesday? Or change it up to an ombre blue on a Thursday? Save your hair from permanent damage with bleach and hair dyes by wearing wigs. You’ll save yourself the time, effort, and money it takes to dye your hair, visit the salon for touch ups, and buying all those coloured haircare products. All it takes is a few wigs, and you’re already good to go.

Perfect For Thinning Scalp/Bald Scalps

If you’re suffering from thinning hair and bald scalps, but you don’t want it to be too obvious, then a lace front wig is perfect for you. It’ll help you hide that balding hairline, and still keep you looking young and fresh. Not only that but it’ll look natural, as if you’ve just had it done at a hair salon yesterday.
