What is a Lace Front Wig?
One of the biggest things we hear from our customers is how they’d like a wig that is almost unnoticeable to the typical bystander. Well, in those cases, we generally direct them to a lace front wig.
Lace front wigs are best known for having one of the most realistic looks amongst all types of wigs. As the name would imply, the lace that makes up the wig is located in the front – what that does is give the look of having a natural hairline.
What are the benefits of wearing a lace front wig?
Aside from the natural look, there are several positives to choosing a lace front wig. We did cover this in a previous post, but we’ll run through the benefits one more time:
- They are amongst the most versatile. Since the lace cap is underneath the wig, you can part the middle without revealing any of the underlying lace
- They are both extremely durable and breathable
- They are becoming increasingly affordable (whereas before they were mostly for the movie stars and on the higher end of pricing)
Are lace front wigs more difficult to clean?
The main difference between wig cleaning has to do with the material, as opposed to the way the wig was built. So, when it comes to lace front, they are no more difficult to clean than other types. Since human hair wigs are more difficult to clean than synthetic, you’ll have a harder time cleaning those, but that’s because of the material and not the design.
How would you store a lace front wig?
Even though they have dropped in price, lace front wigs are still considered an investment. As such, you want to make sure you take proper care of them!
Our first suggestion is to keep the wig from sunlight, dust or excessive heat (the high temperature can damage the binding material). Also you will want to keep it away from children and pets, whose playful fun might result in a damaged wig!
Your best and safest bet is to buy a wig hanger or a stand (like the styrofoam heads you see). These are best if you need to get your wig ready quickly.
