You may have also heard it being called the frontal, the lace frontal, or the front lace wig. Whether you are researching or experimenting with lace front wigs, this article is perfect for you.
WHAT IS A LACE FRONT WIG?
What is a lace front wig and what's the differences between lace front wig and full lace wig? Lace front is a type of braided wig that is constructed with a flesh-colored and thin lace at the frontal (from ear to ear) area of the wig. This type of wig is designed to mimic the natural hairline, so the hair gives the illusion that it is growing from your scalp. As well as it looks natural as the lace blends with your skin tone. You do not have to worry about the remainder of the wig as it is designed with a thicker lace. This ensures that it provides hold, and volume and is long-lasting This is what makes these types of wigs extremely popular within the beauty industry.
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM A REGULAR WIG?
A regular wig is constructed 100% using hair wefts while the lace front wig is not. The hair wefts are sewn to the entire wig cap that makes the hair look bulky at your hairline. This will look awkward as this is not how your hair naturally is or grows. With a lace front braided wig, the lace at the front is constructed by hand-knotting the hairs through the lace. Not only does it give the illusion of your hair, but it also allows you to move them freely into any style as you would your natural hair. Also, the wig cap is lightweight and comfortable which makes it breathable while you are wearing it. Your scalp and hair will receive the proper ventilation needed if you are wearing it for prolonged periods as well as during hot seasons.
HOW TO APPLY A LACE FRONT WIG?
A lot of people think that applying lace front wigs are too hard because you cannot just put it on and head out the door. With these wigs, you must be careful during the application process because of the thin lace at the front. You want to maintain its longevity, so you must be gentle when you are installing especially with the use of the correct adhesive. Whether you use glue or tape, you do not want to damage the wigs or your natural hairline. Once you have secured the wig with an adhesive, it will stay on for a very long time. There is no need to take off the wig every day and then reapply the next day. This can cause more harm than good. Once you purchase a lace front wig, most suppliers will provide you with tips to follow when you are installing.
HOW LONG-LASTING ARE LACE FRONT WIGS?
The timeline of the wig is dependent on several factors such as the quality of the hair, proper maintenance, and how often you wear it. At FANCIVIVI, our wigs are made with high quality Japanese Fiber and lace material that have to meet stringent criteria. Therefore, the wigs last from six months to over a year.
Additionally, you must have a routine in place to take care of your wig. This includes cleansing, conditioning, and maintaining it every so often. Ensure to use products that are free of chemicals to maintain the longevity of the lace. As well as wear them in rotation every 2 to 3 months so the lace doesn’t go through significant wear and tear. And avoid placing heat near the hairline!
