What Is A Lace Front Wig?
A lace front wig is exactly what it sounds like. This wig has a sheer lace strictly in the front edges of the unit that are cut off just prior to be installed on your head.

Lace front wigs are often worn by many celebrities, but there are a few cons to this type of unit. With the baby hair effect, there can often be issues with the tape/glue used to adhere the wig to the front edge of the skin.
For starters, you are putting excessive amounts of stress on the perimeter of your edges if done too frequently. This can cause permanent damage if not handled correctly. The tape/glue can also interact with the skin and form a pulling type effect that will be a dead giveaway. Most times you can also see the glue if too much is installed We've seen this occur on many celebrities in the limelight as well. Though a really good lace front wig can cost you anywhere from 300-400 dollars you can also find cheaper versions at a beauty supply shop, depending on the texture, quality, length, and style you are going for.
How To Wear A Wig?
For the starters, they may not know how to put on a lace front wig. Here we will guide you with a brief introduction:
1. When you first receive your lace front wig, you may notice that there is excess lace that extends out from the front of the wig. This lace should be trimmed down with a pair of sharp scissors to follow the shape of your natural hairline. Be careful not to over trim the lace. You want to cut close to the hairline of the wig without cutting the actual hairs.
2. Lace front wigs should be worn at the natural hairline. To put on your wig, hold the wig by the ear tabs and flip the wig upside down with the interior of the cap facing up and the back of the wigs furthest away from your body. Place the front of the wig cap at your forehead and slide the wig back over your head. Once you have your wig on, you can adjust the placement of your wig to give yourself the most flattering look.
3. Most of our lace front wigs feature interior adjustment straps to give you the best fit possible. We also offer an array of products such as wig grips and comfort gel cushion bands to create a secure and comfortable fit. Some women also prefer to wear a bamboo or cotton wig cap underneath their wig. Any of these products can be worn safely and comfortably underneath a lace front wig. Just be sure that the placement of these products sits slightly behind the hairline, so that they cannot be seen in the mesh area before the hair starts.
