Wigs can come with either real human hair or synthetic hair, styled or straight, black or some other color, and so forth. But one trait that you may not think about is the wig’s base, or how it is actually worn on a person.
Some wigs can be worn simply like a cap, and then there are those that can be braided into your hair, almost like extensions but for your whole head. Lace wigs offer a nice medium between the these types of bases.
As the name suggests, lace wigs contain a sheer, lace base where each strand of hair is tied to the lace itself. A full lace base can be worn for those who would like to style their wigs in an updo, but takes more time to put on. A lace front wig, however, only has the sheer lace on the front of the wig, so it can be placed one quicker than a full lace wig, but will only allow the wearer to style their hair down. But, lace fronts are more popular than full lace, since people tend to value the convenience of the former.
Whether you’re experience hair loss or not, lace wigs can be a great choice for those who are looking for a full hairpiece that looks natural, as if it was their own hair.
However, we do recommend that you do not wear your lace wigs for long periods of time. The constant tugging of your own hair may damage hair follicles. But like with anything in life, everything must be taken in moderation. You should wear these wigs on special occasions, and when you have found the time to properly place the wig on your hair.
Lace front wigs are a popular choice for those in the entertainment field, especially in the performing arts, since they give a natural look and are easy to put on and take off a person.
