Lace Wig Types

What is a lace Front wig?

A lace front is a wig that's hairline is constructed of lace material. This material is made out of French Lace or Swiss Lace and is virtually undetectable to the naked eye when placed against the skin. The hair is knotted into the lace and appears to grow from the scalp offering a natural appearance. Only a lace front wig can be trusted to maintain the illusion of growing hair and it's the preferred choice of celebrities, actors, and people in media.

French Lace Front Wig

French lace is a strong material used at the front edge of a hairpiece in combination with bleached knots to give an extremely undetectable look. The knots are not hidden by lace, but using lighter knots creates the illusion of growing hair. French lace is less fragile than Swiss lace and with proper care and maintenance it could last a long time.

Swiss Lace Front Wig

Swiss Lace is more fragile than French lace but strong enough if handled carefully. It is the most undetectable but also very delicate. Swiss lace needs to be handled with care and is not recommended for first time users of lace front wigs.

French Lace + Ear To Ear Stretch

French Lace + Ear to Ear Stretch is a French lace cap with an elastic material constructed within the unit for maximum durability and elasticity. This will allow a client to pull back the hair in a high ponytail while offering an adjustable "perfect" fit. *Recommended*

French Lace + Thin Skin Nape

French Lace + Thin Skin Nape is a very thin, clear coat of polyurethane over a clear silk base that allows for easy application and removal. This will allow a client a secure fit on the back of the head and scalp without the application of glue. It still appears extremely natural and is very flexible.
