What is Lace Wig
What is a Lace Wig
Real Lace Wigs are handmade by skilled wig makers. The technique used to create a lace wig is called ventilation. The hair is stitched strand by strand to a base made of lace material. The lace serves as the scalp and resembles natural skin or scalp when attached to the head. The lace comes in various colors and can be matched easily with any skin tone. The lace is thin and undetectable. Many different types of laces are used such as Swiss lace, French lace, Korea, and German Lace. The swiss lace is the most undetectable of them all but also more vulnerable due to the thinness of the lace. French lace is the most popular as it is still undetectable and more durable than the Swiss. Machine made lace wigs are made on thicker laces because this French and Swiss cant withhold the stress made by the machine and would therefore be damaged. Human made lace wigs are the best.
Lace Wigs differ from regular wigs in various ways. Lace wigs are the most undetectable on the market. The beauty of this wig is that no one will know that you are wearing a wig. Lace wigs are worn by top celebrities like Beyonce, Tyra Banks, Jessica Simpson, Oprah, Ru Paul, and more A-listers. If you've ever wondered whats their secret... this is it!
Lace wigs can be parted anywhere on the cap, worn in a high ponytail undetectably, can be worn while swimming, and causes minimal or no damage to your own hair.

These wigs are designed to last for years if cared for properly. They can be worn for weeks at a time. If you want to add length, color, style, body, texture, etc... lace wigs are the best option.
Lace wigs have become more mainstream today. They used to be a secret amongst celebrities and Europeans but now they are marketed to chemo and alopecia patients as well as everyday women. They are a great hair replacement option for people who suffer from hair loss or people who have hair that wont grow.
Lace wigs are expensive but they are well worth the money because they are more versatile and last longer than traditional wigs. Lace wigs are made with Indian Remy or other fine grades of human hair that came from a real human. Other types include Chinese or Mongolian Remy Hair. The hair is also hand tied to the base strand by strand and takes about 25 days to produce one unit.
There are several different types of lace wigs on the market. The main difference in all of them will be the cap construction, the type of lace used, the type of hair used to make it as well as the method used to make it as I discussed earlier.
As far as cap construction there are full lace wigs, front lace wigs, thin skin wigs, lace with stretch and so forth. Full lace wigs are the best.
Full lace wigs are made on a full lace cap and are the ones that can be styled in any way, parted anywhere, and worn in a high ponytail. Lace Front wigs only have lace in the front and they are made regular in the back. These are not worth the money but will be undetectable in the front only. Thin Skin wigs are made on a plastic base and adheres to the head well. They also come in a combination of thin skin and lace. Thin skin lace wigs are said to be the glueless lace wig. Some lace wigs are made with synthetic hair or non Indian Remy hair so beware of imposter's who sell their wigs dirt cheap. The average Human Hair full lace wig will cost about 300.00 These wigs used to average about 700.00 to 1500.00 and still does in some locations. This is why they were only worn by celebrities and such.
No matter what your needs are full lace wigs are the perfect option. They are worn by all ethnic groups and come in all varieties and textures of hair.
