What Are Lace Wigs?

Hey there, this is Sandy from Shallamar’s Hair Solutions in Orlando, Florida. Today, we will be discussing: what are lace wigs?   There are two kinds of hair that will be on a lace wig.  There is human hair and synthetic hair.  In this article, we will be focusing on human hair lace wigs.  Lace wigs are wigs that are made up of different kinds of lace. The lace tends to give you a more natural look. In today’s society, celebrities, as well as the general public are wearing lace wigs. Celebrities are the ones that actually made these wigs more popular. As a result, everyone or most people want a lace wig or have questions on them. Lace wigs are very different from the typical traditional wigs. Back in the day, the wigs were made up of all these different kinds of materials and they were not very natural looking. Lace wigs were meant to give a more natural look. And there are many different kinds of lace wigs. Let’s talk about the different kinds of lace wigs, starting with regular lace wigs:

Quick Links:


What Are Lace Front Wigs?

A lace front wig is where lace is in the front of the wig from ear to ear. Which gives you the option to wear the wig with various options. Such as wearing the hair at the back of the face, or with a scalp part on either side or center. A lace front wig gives flexibility in the front of the wig and creates options for your hairstyle. The back of the lace front wig is made with a different kind of material. The back is typically machine weaved, or machine or hand sewed. The front is going to be lace. That is the general make up of a lace front wig.

What is a 360 Lace Wig?

A 360 lace wig is going to be a wig that has lace going all the way around the perimeter of the wig, so you’re able to wear the wig up in a ponytail or high ponytail if you’d like. The middle of the wig is made from a different material. The rest of the wig is made up of all lace. It gives the ability to be able to wear the part wherever you want and also gives the ability for you to wear a high ponytail.

What is a Full Lace Wig?

A full lace wig is where there’s lace all over the wig. One hundred percent of the wig is lace. Lace wigs were designed for people with no hair that want to have a more natural look so the wig is made to mimic hair growing from the scalp. The wig can be part anywhere on the lace has it goes against the scalp, it gives the illusion that there is hair growing from their scalp with full lace wig.

Lace Front Silk Top Wig

We also have what is called a lace front silk top wig. A lace front silk top wig is where there’s lace made in the top of the wig and there is also a silk base in the front center of the wig which gives the ability to wear a scalp looking part. Which means if you wanted a more scalp looking part, a silk base lace front wig would be a great choice for you and that’s what a lace front silk top wig would do.So we have a lace front wig, we have a lace front silk top wig, we have a 360 wig and we have a full lace wig. Those are the four most popular wigs on the market. Let’s touch on another subject. 

What Wig Density Should I Choose?

You can get lace wigs in different kinds of density. Most wigs are going to come with a 130 percent density on the wig itself. Now, you could customize your wig if you wanted more hair, density or volume. You can make the wig as thick as you would like. A customized wigs gives all these options. If 130% is not good for you, you could get away with 150 percent density to 200 percent density, to whatever density you want on your lace wig. You could change the density of the wig. You could also change the length of the wig.

What Wig Length Should I Get?

Let’s talk about the length of the wig. The length of the wig could be anywhere from four inches to 30 inches or beyond, that will be based upon what you want. The most typical lengths on the market today is going to be eight inches to 30 inches, 30 inches will be a pretty long wig. The longer the wig the more you’re going to pay for the wig. The more density of hair on the wig, the more thickness and volume the hair has, the more you’re going pay for the wig as well. Also, you could change the colors.

What Color Options are Available with Lace Wigs?

You can do different colors. You could customize the colors on the wig as well. You could also get a wig with 100 percent virgin human hair and do different colors with it. You could actually color the wig and get great results. The lace knots can also be bleached on the lace wig to give a more natural look. You have to be careful when you’re bleaching the knots and make sure you’re using the correct volume of peroxide and based upon the volume peroxide you use, that should also dictate how long it stays on that lace before you take it off. Make sure when you mix a mixture to bleach it, it’s very thick because if it’s too thin it will seep through the lace and it will bleach the hair and that’s not going to be a pretty look. Okay. So when it comes to lace wigs there are different variations and a lot of different things you got to keep into consideration.I would suggest if you’re considering purchasing a lace wig, that you get a consultation done with either a salon that specializes in wigs or a shop that specialized in customize wigs. Get a consultation to get all your questions answered. Make sure you have an idea of what you’re looking for. Also, make sure you get a customized wig if you are looking for a particular look. I would really suggest a customized wig that way the wig fits exactly to your head. Some people have the kind of head that a certain wig would fit on. Some people don’t.Most of the wigs in the stores are going to come with 21 to 22 inches of circumference. Not everybody has this 21 or 22 inches circumference. So if that’s not you, then you’d want to get a customized wig. Sometimes it is 21 or 22-inch circumference, but you may have a different variation in the size of your ear to ear, or different across the top of your head or across the forehead, or nape of your neck, there are quite a few things to keep into consideration.It’s quite a few different things that go into play. We do a lot of wigs here, in our salon. We also do customized wigs as well as a lot of specialty wigs. It will be all based on what you are looking for. When it comes to lace wigs, if you’re looking for a natural look or if you’re looking to change your hair color, change your hairstyle, change your hair texture without compromising your hair, a lace wig would be a very good option.
