First up — Laced Wigs.
The term lace front wig and full lace wig are virtually the same and has a very natural front hair line. It is constructed with fine lace in the front and a variety of materials in the back of the head. A full lace system is the ultimate system since it will look natural from every angle regardless of how the hair is brushed or styled. The main objective of a lace front wig or a full lace wig is to look beautiful and natural! You do not want anyone to ever think you are wearing a wig.
A full lace system is usually preferred to any other type of wig because of its style, design, beauty and naturalness. It caters to individuals who wish to change their hair style without damage to their own hair, or to those who may have experienced hair loss or hair damage. Even if you’d like to give your hair a break from daily styling without compromising your look, purchasing a custom lace front wig could be the right option for you.
Wigs come in different lengths, colors, textures and densities. They can be synthetic, human hair and synthetic mix or 100% human hair and are attached with different types of adhesives. Several kinds of specialized tape and glue are used for keeping the wig in place. Wigs can be purchased already made and styled or custom designed prior to ordering by a specialist.
One thing to consider, if left on too long or too tight there is a chance of causing friction alopecia, so wearing wigs for more than 6 or 8 weeks at a time is not recommended.
