Brooklyn Hair’s Full lace vs Lace front wigs
How do you choose? Full lace vs Lace front wigs
Well, if you’ve never worn a full lace or lace front wig, or you’re new to wigs entirely, the decision between the two can be hard.
What’s the difference? Let us carefully break it down for you.
Full Lace Wigs:
A full lace wig consists of lace throughout the entire base, and so each hair strand must be hand-tied because the lace is very delicate. This is mostly why full lace wigs are somewhat more expensive, but on the bright side full lace wigs can be styled any way you wish.
The full lace base ensures that wherever you part the hair, it will mimic the look of scalp to look natural. Another benefit of full lace wigs is that they are lighter than lace front wigs.
Lace Front Wigs:
Lace front wigs are half machine made and half hand-tied and comes in average size with adjustable strap at the back of the wig. The hair is individually hand-tied into a thin, nearly invisible lace material at the front of the wig, and this feature results in a very natural-looking hairline because it gives the illusion that the hair strands are growing right from your scalp.
Lace front wigs normally measure 13” long and 4” wide in the front then connects to a mesh/wig cap base that’s incorporate hair on wefts by a machine to complete the rest of the wig. The lace front allows for a natural hairline at the front, and hair can be parted above the forehead, but will be limited throughout the rest of the wig.
The main take away is that lace front wigs are usually more affordable than full lace wigs because the hair can be machine-sewn into the mesh/wig cap base which is a quicker and easy way to make compared to full lace wigs which are tediously hand-tied. Either option is a great pick and you will be highly pleased especially if you get your hair done by a professional stylist.
Happy wig shopping!
