Are you considering wearing lace wigs, but you’re not positive if it’s worth taking the plunge?
I’m here to help you make that choice.
In this post, I’ll highlight 5 chief reasons why I love lace wigs and why you should too.
Everybody knows they are fantastic for length and quantity, but did you ever consider that it’s also a wonderful way to hide a bad haircut, hair loss or experiment with color and attain those hair goals you have been dreaming about for prom night or your wedding day?
Here are the 5 reasons why wigs are worth investing in…
1 – Celebrity Styles & Versatility
Wanna look like your favorite celeb?
Celebrity’s are known for the trending hair styles that we love and yes it’s true, trending styles are incredibly fun but they come and go. Trying to keep up with trends can cause serious wear and tear on your own hair.
For example, if you cut your own hair to keep up with a certain hair trend, when that trend passes you may have to go into a transitional growth period that’s usually awkward and in most cases unflattering! That being said, most of us have that one horror story of going to a hair appointment and requesting for a tiny cut off the ends, and coming out with a brand-new un-asked for pixie cut! 🙁
It happens to the best of us. The good thing about lace wigs is that they can easily fix this issue. They don’t hinder hair development so it’s the ideal alternative to rocking more locks while waiting for your real hair to develop.
Additional great news is that lace wigs themselves are becoming more and more trendy and you can get the look of your favorite celebrity in no time!
2 – Fashion Accessory & To Keep People Guessing 😉
I’m a woman and I love accessories, don’t you?!
Ever considered the fact that your lace wig could be a form of accessorizing like wearing a beautiful piece of jewelry, sexy shoes, a cute purse or nail polish? It’s a form of self expression and if you’re anything like me, I love to express myself in many different ways.
If you enjoy changing your look and not being repetitive, well, lace wigs are very effective in that sense! And, if you really love wearing your lace wig as a fashion accessory, take it a step further by switching your style often and that will keep friends, family or people in the office guessing what your next look will be! Depending on how you install your lace wig, you can switch up your style weekly or even day to day to match a particular outfit or to dress up for seasonal party.
Rihanna is well known for switching up her look. Below are some examples of her adventurous lace wig personality… 🙂
3 – Protective Style
So in all seriousness, you do have to take care of your own hair.
Trimming your ends, oiling your scalp and deep conditioning on a regular basis all contribute to healthy hair growth and development. The maintenance of your own hair in addition to the proper care of your lace wig ensures that both will remain gorgeous and in good shape.
Wearing a protective style, lace wigs specifically, allows your own hair to rest between styles away from the harsh elements that occur naturally in the environment and from the things we do to our hair to look the way we want to look, like using heat and coloring…
4 – Great Body – Big Hair Don’t Care!
Lace wigs aren’t just for those experiencing some type of hair loss.
Density is what determines just how full your lace wig is and if you love thick and full hair, lace wigs can help you get it.
Density is defined as how thick or thin the hair on your lace wig will be. The standard and most popular choice is 120% which is Medium Thick Density. The average human head is considered to be between 100%-120%.

5 – Lace wig Improvements
About a decade ago lace wigs were scarce. Available only in Hollywood circles and ultimately very expensive, they ranged in price anywhere upwards of $800. There also was a lack of variety of styles and of cap construction options for comfort. This was very frustrating for some.
Since then there have been some major improvements made. Here are some of them..:
Cap construction – now lightweight and breathable. There are a variety of types and materials that fit your specific needs.
Silktop wigs are growing in popularity because the ventilation technique which allows multi-directional parting without worrying about visible knots.
The silk top consists of a layer of lace, and silk fabric on the top front of the cap. When the hair is knotted, the knots are below the silk concealed between the layers, making them 100% invisible giving the illusion that the hair is actually growing out of your scalp! Pretty cool, right?!
Textures – Especially good if you plan on leaving some of your own hair out and want to match for a realistic look. Check out an earlier blog where I go into detail about the different lace wig textures, click here.
Cool colors – All imaginable colors are available now.
And the list goes on and on!
