What is a lace front wig?
The hair are individually hand-tied to the lace front piece to create a more natural look. Lace front wigs can be combed away from the face because the hairline is almost invisible and the scalp can be seen through the mesh. You can also pull the wig hair back or tuck it behind the ears without showing the wig cap. This gives it versatility and a very realistic look.
A lace front wig can also contain other types of construction elements such as a monofilament top, a hand-tied cap, a capless style, or be a classic machine-made cap. Because lace front wigs offer such a natural-looking hairline, many wig wearers want a cap that combines a lace front with a monofilament, or a hand-tied cap for the most realistic look. With the greatest versatility, as these types of caps also allow hair to be parted in multiple directions.
