FULL Lace Wigs: Full lace wigs are wigs with a unique lace base that is ultra fine tissue thin. This lace material actually looks similar to fishnet with tiny holes through the netting. The tiny holes allow for the wig maker to tie hairs through the lace cap using only 1-2 strands at a time. This gives the allusion that the hairs are growing directly from ones scalp. This process can take up to 2 weeks for skilled hands to complete just one wig. The term “Full Lace Wig” means that the whole cap will be constructed using this method. Because the whole cap is constructed of this lace material, a full lace wig would be the most natural looking wig available to the general public today. This type of wig can also be worn in any style including a high ponytail. You will also get baby hair around the FULL cap including the back.

The life span of a full lace wig with Remy hair can be anywhere from 3-6 months or more (depending on care and usage. Because ALL of the hair is TIED in knot by knot the full lace wig will not shed as much and will last the longest.

Lace Front Wigs:

Human Hair Lace Front Wigs: Human Hair Lace Front Wigs are a more affordable alternative to Full Lace Wigs. They come with human hair as in a FULL lace wig. The hair is very natural looking and soft. The hair can also be styled on most any heat setting that one would use on their own hair. You can find them with any amount of hand tied lace in the front the same as with synthetic lace front wigs. The amount will vary from vender to vend from anywhere to .5 inches of lace to 3 inches of lace. The more lace used in the front, the more of a natural look the wig will have. With three inches of lace attached to the front you should be able to style the hair in the op and front freely. You will not be able to get a high ponytail because the wig will have a different back than what of a FULL lace wig. A lace front wig will have an adjustable strap in the backing.

The life span of a human hair lace front wig will vary from user to use depending on usage and care. The average user should expect anywhere from 2-3 months to 6-8 month or even more but it will depend on care.

Synthetic Lace Front Wigs: Synthetic Lace Front Wigs are non Remy hair wigs with lace attached to the front of the caps and single strands of hair tied into the tiny holes of the fine lace material. Because the hair is tied in using just 1-2 strands of hair, it creates a very natural look for the front of the cap. The back of the cap is machine made so you will not be able to wear in up in a high ponytail.

The life span of synthetic hair can be anywhere from 1-4 months depending on usage and care.

Shedding will also vary from person to person. The best grooming method would be a wide tooth comb to avoid unnecessary shedding. Because these wigs are machine made in the back, shedding is more likely to accrue than with a traditional full lace wig.

The amount of hand tied lace used can also vary PLEASE BEWARE! You can find Synthetic Lace Front Wigs nearly everywhere these day so here are a few things to look out for and BEWARE!
