    DAY 33

    It’s raining cats and dogs and as I pull into work my wig looks perfect. This is a big deal because I styled it all by myself and I am not the best at primping my own hair. It’s a short and dark, one length wig from Louis Ferre made of human hair. The quality is amazing! At first the lace wouldn't lay down properly on my forehead so I thought it may be defective. But it's almost like it just figured out my head shape because after I styled it (flat ironed the waves which took me too long!) the hair feels incredible and looks great!


    DAY 38

    I’ve noticed that no matter how secure I know my wig is I keep touching it to make sure it hasn’t ridden up. I’m not sure if this is a nervous habit I developed because it took a couple of weeks for me to get the 'putting on' process down. But once I start tugging my hair underneath begins moving. I made a conscious effort not to touch it and trust it is where it belongs. I found myself still doing mirror checks just to be sure.


    DAY 41

    Three days later and the not-tugging-on-my-wig-to-make-sure-it’s-in-place effort is working like a dream. What a difference! It turns out the problem was my own insecurity about my wig moving. Today was my first real experience with cold set, which is when a wig sits in a box a long time, or is exposed to extreme temperatures while in the box. It sets the hair in a weird shape, (usually on top or in front). I learned to spritz it down with water, rub my hands together vigorously and touch it up. The heat from your hands resets the hair!


    DAY 46

    I'm learning so many things about hair color. The only thing that's changed on me over the last month or so has been my hair. But there’s a difference in the way I’m treated depending on which color I choose for the day. I received the most compliments on my hair as a brunette. I feel the most at home in this color. The consensus seems to be that I look younger, "classier" was the word used. But as a blonde I received more concessions: men allowed me to go first in line; I got little extras at the counter; and (of course) I got looked at. Even women were giving me the “once over”. Each color has its advantage for sure.

    Back in the olden days, lace only existed on your grandma’s dress. Nowadays lace is everywhere, even on wigs! Although lace is mainly known as a fabric to make clothing, this type of material has been included in the cap construction of wigs to create what are known as lace front wigs.

    What are lace front wigs?

    Example of a Jon Renau lace front wig diagram

    Wigs made with a thin sheer lace base at the hairline are called lace front wigs. This characteristic is important because it gives your wig a natural looking hairline. Not only does a lace front mimic natural hair growth at the hairline, but it also allows you to style the hair off the face without revealing the wig. This is what helps your wig look… well, not so wiggy. Although some wigs can be entirely made with lace, most generally only have the lace at the hairline, which can extend either from temple-to-temple or ear-to-ear.

    Did you know that many wigs come with a ready-to-wear lace front wigs? Most people are intimidated by lace front wigs thinking they require a lot of time and preparation before wearing them. However, temple-to-temple ready to wear lace front wigs arrive precut out of the box. That means less time fussing with your wig and more time for fun! Think of ready-to-wear wigs like ready-to-wear fashion. They’re meant to be worn without any alterations.

    Check out these frequently asked questions The Wig Experts have answered below.

    Lace Front Wigs FAQs

    Can you see the lace front?

    OK, first of all, the lace fabric used in wigs is not like your granny’s lace dress. The lace used is a sheer and fine net-like material that has a seamless barely-there appearance.

    So don’t worry, you won’t be sporting a “vintage” looking wig.

    Do I have to cut the lace on my wig?

    The great thing about a temple-to-temple lace front wig is that they’re ready-to-wear – absolutely no cutting necessary! If you purchase an ear-to-ear (professional) lace front you will have to get it professionally cut. But most lace front wigs are ready-to-wear.

    Tip: A lace front is extremely delicate so it should be handled with care. The lace should only be cut with pinking shears; cutting it with regular scissors could make the lace fray and unravel. Just say No, and let a professional help you! Take good care of your investment!!

    Do you have to add tape or adhesive to the lace front wig?

    All temple-to-temple lace front wigs come ready-to-wear.

    Then how does the lace front wig stay on?

    Wigs are designed with adjustable straps, which will adjust the cap into place. These straps (pull, Velcro or clip) help to flatten the lace front into place and won’t lift.

    Note: An ear-to-ear lace front wig is normally known as a “professional lace front wig” because the lace extends 1-2 inches in length. Professional application is recommended to create a custom hairline, which can be secured with tape or adhesive. Read more about it here.

    Do I have to apply makeup to the lace front wig?

    Generally the lace front is sheer enough to where it will blend with your skin. However, if you have a darker skin tone you may have to apply a bit of foundation or powder to match to the color of your skin.

    Tip: You can “dye” the lace front using a tea bag. Use a damp tea bag and dab onto the lace until you match it to your skin color. The more you dab the tea bag, the darker the color.
