There are 3 main types of lace wigs:
- Full Lace Wigs

FULL LACE WIGS
Full Lace Wigs are the most versatile type of wig.
They are 100 % hand tied meaning each strand is individually tied to the lace material giving your wig a more natural undetectable appearance.
Full Lace Wigs can be styled just like your own hair. They can be parted anywhere and worn in a high ponytail or an up-do.
In order to achieve this versatility Full Lace Wigs are normally applied with adhesive. For a detailed demonstration on how to professionally apply a Full Lace Wig click here…

LACE FRONT WIG
The last type of lace wig is a Lace Front Wig which is a great option for women on a budget.
As the name suggests Lace Front Wigs are made with lace only in the front part of the wig.
The lace front area is made with hairs individually hand tied to the lace which gives it a realistic hairline. Most lace front wigs on the market have only 1 inch of lace but if you purchase a wig with up to 3.5 inches of lace which allows for a longer and more natural looking part you’ll get more versatility.

The rest of wig is machine wefted.
The adjustable straps and combs allow for the Lace Front Wigs to be worn with or without adhesive.
Lace Wigs are designed to provide a more natural and undetectable wig appearance. Although it may be a large out of pocket expense initially, lace wigs are a longer lasting option to weaves and closures for example. If cared for correctly, a lace wig may last you 1-3 years, while a weave and closure including the cost of a stylist to sew -in the weave, will last you about 2 – 3 months for the same cost.
Lace Wigs are truly an investment but if you purchase your lace wigs from a reputable seller and provide the proper care, it’ll be well worth the investment you make in yourself!
