You can do all kinds of experiments with your look without worry. Let that stylist in you unleash her full potential!
LACE FRONT WIGS
The best lace front wigs are a type of wig whose front is made of delicate lace which is also attached to the hairline to make baby hair and it seems like a sack closed with a drawstring. The rest of the body of the wig is made of an unbreakable material that stretches but does not blend in with the scalp as much as the lace part. Its popularity has been growing among people who wear wigs routinely, or even occasionally. The reason is that they give you a completely natural look. How do you do that? Well, the cords these wigs come with are natural skin colors that you can even customize to match your skin tone and help the cord blend in perfectly with your skin. In fact, the sheer lace that the wigs are made of extends one or more inches so that the lace blends into your skin and is completely unnoticeable, giving your more confidence a boost with that flawless natural growth look.
Distinguishing Features of Lace Front Wigs
The best part about lace front wigs is the sheer lace itself that blends into the skin on your forehead and helps you have such a natural hairline that even the person next to you won’t be able to detect it. But there are also more attractive features:

The other wigs are not very useful in that regard because the user must be careful not to expose the wig cap even when the hair is parted. The lace front wig frees you from worry.
- Another important feature of these wigs is that they are generally 100% unprocessed natural virgin hair, which means that the user will not have to face problems such as shedding or feeling uncomfortable at high temperatures and the hair will also look completely natural.
- The cap size on average is 22.5 inches and has a density of 120%.

- Plus, they’re breathable, a factor you don’t want to miss when choosing your wig. The lace front wigs have lace as a base that is breathable for the scalp and does not make you feel uncomfortable.
