Many options exist when it comes to wigs, gone are the days when wigs looked like something that belonged only on our grandmother’s heads. These days, many well-known celebrities wear wigs for various reasons.
Whether you're looking to change your hairstyle to experiment with different looks, or because of hair loss, you might wonder which is preferable when comparing lace front wigs and full lace wigs.
Lace Front Wigs:
Lace front wigs are crafted with a lace base at the front, from ear to ear for frontal wigs, and from eyebrow to eyebrow for closure wigs which sit in the middle of the head, then the rest of the wig is constructed on a stretchy breathable wig cap.
This allows for a natural-looking hairline at the front and the illusion of hair growing directly from the scalp. Lace front wigs allow for the hair to be parted and styled in many ways, providing the freedom to achieve various looks. The natural hairline makes them more realistic and makes them suitable for everyday wear.
In terms of cost, lace front wigs are generally more affordable than full lace wigs making them more accessible to everyone who needs them without breaking the bank.
Full Lace Wigs:
Full lace wigs are constructed entirely with a lace base, which makes them more natural and realistic, especially at the back of the wig. The lace material covers the entire scalp area, enabling the wearer to create several parting styles anywhere on the wig cap. Each hair strand is hand-tied to the lace, ensuring a more realistic look.
The main difference between the full lace and lace front wig is that the full lace wig can be worn as a high ponytail which is not ideal with a lace front wig because of the wig cap/ tracks at the back.
Having said that, you need to consider some other factors like;
If you want a cheap lace front wig, then full lace wigs might not be for you as they are more expensive. Consider your budget and how much you are willing to invest in a wig before deciding.
2. Styling Needs:
Assess your styling requirements and preferences. Full lace wigs are your best choice if you want a wig that can be worn as a high ponytail. If you want an affordable wig that can be worn as a low ponytail or left down, then we suggest you get a lace front wig.
Full lace wigs are constructed with lace entirely. This means that they are delicate and require more careful handling. On the other hand, lace front wigs can withstand daily wear and tear with ease and have a longer life span.
Choosing between a lace front wig and a full lace wig ultimately depends on your styling needs and budget.
Lace front wigs are budget friendly and are suitable for everyday wear. Meanwhile, full lace wigs are great for styling as a high ponytail.
Assess your priorities, and consider your most important needs in choosing the right wig.
