Lace wigs have become increasingly popular lately, primarily due to the fact a good number of celebrities use them daily with stunning results when it comes to obtaining a natural feel and look. Some time ago, these wigs were extremely expensive and thus, not available to the general public. Things have changed though and due to the massive demand, the prices dropped significantly, resulting in this type of wig being by far the most preferred by consumers all over the world.

Natural Look, Affordable Prices

The primary advantage these wigs have over their counterparts is the lace. The lace allows for the maximum natural result while massively advancing breathability and comfort. Lace wigs are primarily categorized in lace front wigs and full lace wigs. As implied by their title tag, lace front wigs only have lace in the front hairline; sometimes knotted with baby hair. Since lace is an expensive material, using it only in the front hairline is what allows for lace front wigs to be so affordable. The best parts of these wigs (back and sides) use other materials to compensate, usually monofilament or polyurethane.

Full lace front wigs (or full lace wigs) use lace throughout the wig. That makes these wigs easier to style since every part of the wig looks natural, not just the front hairline. They are far more breathable and comfortable to wear. However, they’re more expensive as well.

Note that as a material, lace requires more care and attention than monofilament or polyurethane, and others. Thus, the more lace, the more care a wig will need. Natural looks, comfort, breathability, and styling options do come with a cost, unfortunately.

Synthetic or Human Hair?

After having decided whether you’re going for a lace front wig or a full lace wig, based on your own needs and budget, the time has come to decide on the type of hair:

  1. Synthetic hairdo looks natural. Not as natural as human hair but they come really close. Synthetic hair is far cheaper (even 10 times cheaper) than human hair lace wigs but is not as durable. This means that, depending on how often you need to use your synthetic wig, you’ll soon have to replace it with a new one. It’s common for customers to purchase two synthetic hair wigs at a time to have a replacement ready, should they need it. Synthetic hair does not require as much attention as a human hairdo. The best and most commonly seen synthetic hair is Futura fiber; iron safe up to 400F and 200F respectively.
  2. Human hair is the most natural-looking, they’re far more durable than synthetic hair. Styling-wise, they’re exactly like one’s own hair; they can be cut, dyed, dried, styled anyhow. There are no limits really. However, they require as much care as your own, natural hair as well. They need to be shampooed, conditioned, and dried… Human hair lace front wigs are very expensive though when compared with synthetic hair. While a synthetic wig may start at $30, a human hair one may start at $200. However, milky way lace front wigs combine human hair with low pricing. The most popular human hair types are Remy, Indian and European.

Is The Color Of The Lace Important?

The color of the lace is truly important because it very much determines the natural look of the wig. Laces come in various colors: Transparent, light brown, medium brown, and dark brown to match different skin colors. However, most manufacturers build their lace wigs using a neutral lace color that can match all skin colors.

Before You Buy

Before you go on and buy a lace front wig, you should conduct thorough market research to make sure you get your wig at the lowest price possible. Some sellers are way out of place these days. Apart from pricing, you should always purchase from trusted, reliable sellers.

Market research is a long process, however, there are websites that do not sell lace wigs directly; they do market research (price, merchant reliability, etc) and present their findings publicly. It may be a good idea to start from there, after all, it only takes a couple of minutes (or much less) …
