Are Lace Front Wigs Worth The Money?

Posted on June 25 2019

Lace front wigs can be more expensive than wigs without a lace frontal, but that's because they are high-quality and look the most natural. For a look that's undetectable and has great styling versatility, these wigs are certainly worth the money!

Should I Buy A Lace Front Wig?





Initially used by the Hollywood movie industry to most naturally transform actors and performers. Lace front wigs have been increasingly worn by celebrities off the set too!  What was once a great and expensive trick of the trade, is now available for you to take advantage of too!  Lace front wigs may be the number one factor in having the best experience with wigs.

If you're searching for a new wig, you may be wondering what kind is the best fit for you. Most wig wearers want the most natural hairline possible. The hairline across your forehead is one of the first things a person will see when they're looking at your hair...make sure it looks flawless!

Lace Front Wigs have an invisible hairline. It is the only choice for the most natural look possible.  The good news is lace front wigs have become so popular, you can get them in both human hair and synthetic hair, and in almost every style you could want.


Why Are Lace Front Wigs More Expensive 

Lace fronts are wigs that have a small very sheer lace panel along the front hairline attached to the front of the wig. The hair strands are hand sewn in to the holes of the lace. One by one in many cases! The rest of the wig cap is made with a stronger material than the lace so it is more durable and allows for attention needed to fit your head.

The end result… an undetectable hairline giving the illusion that the hair is actually growing out of your own head. No one will know that you are wearing a wig unless you tell them! And even when you tell them… they won’t believe it until you let them touch it!

The process is labor intensive and so the cost is a bit higher but to get the illusion of a seamless hairline… priceless!

In the past, the only drawback to lace front was that you had to cut it yourself to suit your face shape and hairline. However, so much advancement has been made in lace due to the demand.

Now, you will hear the term “ready-to- wear" Lace front wigs.  This means the lace is measured perfectly so you don’t have to cut or customize (like they did in years past).  The manufacturers of ready to wear lace front wigs created a natural hair line on this delicate lace so you can put it on and go!  No more cutting or customizing. 

Keep in mind,  the lace is delicate so be careful not to pull it or stretch it out as it will lose its shape if you are too hard on it. 

Lace front wigs are a great solution for so many, but you don't have to be dealing with premature balding, alopecia, hair thinning or any hair loss. Most of us just want a flawless look when wearing a wig. It is a growing trend to wear wigs simply to change up your look. By minding a few key features... you will get the best look.

Whatever your desire is for wanting a wig, if you want the most natural look at your hairline… make the best of it… a lace front wig is your answer!

    Thanks again, Venus!

    Penny, great question about repairing the lace on your Upstage by Raquel Welch!
    While there are wig shops out there that repair lace fronts, many stay away from that service. It can become quite risky and expensive! Although the hair is still wearable, it may be easier to simply replace the item.

    Another thing we recommend is only adjusting your wig by the ear tabs to avoid stretching your lace.

    Thanks for your comments!

    This was a big help as I wear Lace front wigs all the time.

    I have two older lace “upstage” wigs. The lace has stretched out and I would like to know if there is anything I can do to repair the lace? The wig itself is still wearable, but I don’t like the look of the lace now.

    Thanks
