Whether you're new to wearing wigs or have been wearing them for years, you'll come across the terms "lace front wig" and "full lace wig." They have always been the ideal choice for wig lovers. Before you buy, you need to know some specific information about them to make a better decision. In this article, let's take a closer look at these two different types of wigs.


What is a lace front wig?

One of the most popular wig options, lace front wigs are loved by women of all ages for their natural hairline and versatile styling. There is a transparent lace part at the front hairline, and virgin hair is artificially sewn into it to make it look more natural. The size of the lace is also different according to the needs, generally can be divided into 13X4 lace front wig and 13X6 lace front wig.

 

What is a full lace wig?

The entire bottom of a full lace wig is made of lace, not just in the front. This means you can wear the wig any way you want. Compared with other wigs, full lace wigs can provide more styling, such as high and low ponytails, etc., which is one of the reasons why many people decide to buy full lace wigs.

 

What's the difference between the two?

1. Different lace area

The lace area of the lace front wig is only on the hairline part, while the lace front wig has the entire lace cap, and the lace area covers the entire head.

2. Air permeability is different

A full lace wig has a lace cap all over the bottom, which allows more air in, so it's more breathable than a lace front wig.

3. Different styles are provided

The full lace wig can be combed into any hairstyle you want, such as a high back ponytail, etc. The front lace wig can only be combed in the middle part or side part. So the full lace wig can provide more styling.

4. Durability

The full lace wig can be completely attached to the whole head, so it has strong durability. You can even go swimming with it on without worrying about the wig falling out.

5. Different prices
Due to the difference in the size of the lace area and the manufacturing process, the price of full lace wigs is higher than that of front lace wigs.

 


Which one should i choose?

Which is better, a full lace wig or a lace front wig? It all depends on your preferred wig style, budget, etc. Usually if you are new to wigs, then it is recommended that you choose lace front wigs, because you only need to glue the hairline part. Compared with full lace wigs, it is easier to install. Of course, if you want a wig with good air permeability and durability and can be designed in a variety of styles, then a full lace wig will be a good choice for you.
