The Difference Between A FULL Lace Wig And A Lace FRONT Wig


Before you go ahead and shop for some lace wigs, however, you do have to realize that these wigs do come in two different types – the lace front wigs and the full lace wigs. Both of these wigs have their advantages but in order to choose the best one for you, it is important that you understand their differences as well.

Lace Front Wigs

The main difference between these two kinds of wigs lies in the material used for the base. A lace front wig uses a sheer lace base for the front portion of the wig. In some lace front wigs, the lace covers the front half of the wig while in others, the lace is only used for a couple of inches. The rest of the base is made of a thicker but still comfortable material.

Lace front wigs look very natural towards the front because the lace is almost invisible. The hair can be parted in the middle or on the sides. Also lace front wigs are attached to your head with an adhesive only along your hairline above your forehead.

Full Lace Wigs

Full lace wigs, on the other hand, come with a base that is made entirely of lace. The lace material essentially covers the whole head even all the way to the back. Because of this, full lace wigs are more versatile because you can also style them into up-dos, braids, and many other hairstyles that are not possible with a front lace wig. However, full lace wigs are also more expensive, sometimes costing more than $1000.
