Front and Full Lace Wigs by Danielle Lawrence
and Full Lace Wigs.
Things you should consider before deciding whether to buy a Lace Front or Full
- Are you very active, do you require an unusually secure wig?
- Do you intend to wear your wig occasionally or daily?
- Are you heavy-handed or gentle when styling your hair?
- How do you wish to style your hair?
- How much time do you have to put your wig on?
- Do you wish to change the colour, curl or straighten the hair of the wig?
Considering your image and lifestyle needs will enable you to decide which of the
various wig types might be suitable for you i.e.: Full Lace or Lace Front?
What are the pros and cons of a Full Lace Wig?
They are constructed entirely on a lace base with a lace seam that is fixed around the
entire circumference of the head (as oppose to just at the front from ear to ear as
with a Lace Front Wig). The hair used in the wigs is lightweight and versatile and can
be parted at any point and in any direction. The hair can be worn up, in a pony-tail or
Because of the wider variety of styles available as well as the option for extended
wear, they are very popular. They can take longer to put on than a Lace Front Wig
due to the wig needing to be secured with adhesive all the way around the head. This
can be an issue for those who only want to wear their lace wig occasionally and for
shorter periods as they perhaps have less time to spare in preparation. It's not an
issue though if you are intending to wear your wig for days or even a couple of
weeks at a time.
- They are more natural looking (undetectable) than other wigs
- Hair and scalp below can breathe
- They are comfortable and light weight
- They offer more versatile styling options.
- They can be worn for extended periods.
- You can sleep, work-out and even swim in a Full Lace Wig. Though chlorine and
salt water can damage lace wig hair just as it can your own.
- Has to be glued around entire perimeter of the head.
- Can be time consuming to put on.
What are the pros and cons of a Lace Front Wig?
A Lace Front Wig is constructed from lace at the front only with a stronger, more
durable material at the back similar to that of a regular wig. It is secured with
adhesive or tape around the front from ear to ear and either a machine made cap
with elastic or elastic straps built into it at the back.
The lack of need to adhere the wig with adhesive at the back as well as the front
saves some time in application and as such may be more suitable for short term or
occasional wear due to less time required in preparation. However the fact that the
seam is not adhered around the entire perimeter of the head means that while the
hair can still be worn in a low ponytail it cannot be parted in any direction as it can
with a Full Lace Wig.
- Lace Front Wigs are quicker and easier to apply than a Full Lace Wig.
- You can wear a Lace Front Wig off the face and at the back in a low ponytail.
- You can use a lace front Wig over heavier hair.
- Suitable for extended wear
- Lace Front Wigs are not as versatile for styling as Full Lace Wigs.
