Short Lace Front Wigs

Lace Front Short Wigs: 2021’s Top 10

The term lace front describes the area at the front of a wig or hair topper made of a thin, mesh-like material where hairs are hand-tied into the material. This effect gives you the most natural-looking scalp effect because the hairs look as if they are growing right out of the scalp! New and experienced wig wearers love lace front wigs because no other wig feature gives you a realistic look like lace fronts.

I am 89 years old and my hair is almost white and very thin. I want a natural looking synthetic wig in that color, suitable for an old woman. Or maybe just a hair topper.
