The Difference between a Front Lace Wig or a Full Lace Wig

Remy hair offers the highest quality.

Remy hair is treated human hair and makes a high quality wig.

A lace wig is one of the most realistic types of wigs because of the way it is constructed. These wigs consist of an invisible lace base onto which strands of either remy hair or human hair are tied to create a natural look. Before you buy your next wig, make sure you understand the difference between a front lace wig and a full lace wig so you can enjoy the look you want.

Coverage

The primary difference between these two types of lace wigs is the way they are constructed. The front lace wig is made with lace that only wraps around the front of the head, back toward the ears. Anything beyond this area is made from a microfilament or other material to keep the costs lower. However, a full lace wig will feature lace under the entire wig to create a more natural look like your actual scalp.

Versatility

Some people use wigs as a way to change their hairstyles on a frequent basis. If you enjoy some versatility in your styling options, the type of lace wig you buy can play a major role in your ability to style the hair any way you want. For instance, a full lace wig can be styled into any type of hairstyle you could create with your natural hair. However, a front lace wig cannot be styled in certain ways, such as a ponytail or bun, because the material underneath the hair will show through, making it obvious you are wearing a wig.

Hair Types

Regardless of which decision you make, you will need to choose whether you want your lace wig to be made from remy hair or human hair. A remy hair wig is typically more expensive because it is unique. This type of wig is constructed from donor hair that is kept in the same position after removal from the contributor’s head, preserving the natural look of the hair. No chemicals are used. Human hair wigs are also created from donor hair, but this hair is separated and chemically treated so it is easier to style. It is often bleached before it is dyed to ensure the color is uniform throughout the wig.

Choosing the right kind of lace wig depends greatly on your intended purpose. A front lace wig is ideal if you don’t want to style your hair more than one way, while a full lace wig is required if you plan to wear your wig in many ways, particularly in an up-do. In either case, you must also decide whether you want to spend more for remy hair for a more natural look or if a treated human hair wig will provide the desired effect.

Tips to Successfully Apply and Remove a Wig

Keep your wig natural with proper application.

Proper application is necessary to keep your wig looking natural.

Whether you have lost your hair due to an illness or you are looking for a way to easily change your hairstyle, a lace wig can be the perfect option. However, applying a wig so it looks like your natural hair can be a challenge. With these tips, you can achieve the beauty you are looking for quickly and easily every time.

Clean Your Skin

Your skin has natural oils that can affect the fit of your wig. Before you apply your wig, use rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt or oil. This is especially necessary if you will be using glue to secure the edges of the wig. It is also important to remove any old glue from the area because new adhesive will not bond to it properly.

Use Clips

A lace wig is designed to fit securely to your head without the need for adhesives or other connections. However, if you don’t have any hair, it may be best to glue the wig down to ensure it stays in place. The right fit will also depend upon buying the proper size. If you find the wig fits too loosely, you can use clips at the back to adjust it for a snug, comfortable fit.

Trim the Lace Edges Smoothly

When you put on your lace wig for the first time, it may not give you the exact look you want. These wigs are designed for use with scissors to trim the edges. This will help create the right hairline for your face and eliminate the need to find a wig that fits as is. The look is all in your hands. As you make your cuts, it is important to use smooth motions and avoid cutting jagged edges. Cut off only a small amount of lace at a time. You can always take more off but you can never replace any areas that have already been removed.

Wig Removal

Taking off your wig is a fairly simple process. Placing the hair into a ponytail will give you easy access to the edges. Use a specially designed wig adhesive remover to gently separate the lace from your head. Once it has been removed, carefully wash the adhesive from your head and remove any excess glue from your wig. Keeping your hairpiece clean will ensure its beauty lasts a long time.

Wearing wigs has become somewhat of a fashion trend. You don’t have to be losing your hair or bald to wear a lace wig. Today, many women are choosing this option to change their hairstyles quickly and easily. With the help of these tips, you can make the process of applying and removing your wig easier so you can enjoy wearing them more often.
