The idea of lace wigs made with human hair may seem like a contradiction, but the “lace” in lace wigs isn’t referring to the stands of hair. Instead, the lace is used to construct the sheer base of the wig that meets the scalp. The strands of human hair are tied by hand to the base, creating a high-quality hairpiece that is indistinguishable from natural hair.

Full lace wigs have the entire base made of less, while front lace, obviously, only have lace in the front. This makes them less expensive but also limits your styling capabilities. However, the rest of the front lace wig is made of a more durable material, so they tend to last a little longer.
