Initially used by the Hollywood movie industry to most naturally transform actors and performers.

Now you've identified that you want a new wig… Time to figure out if you're going to get human hair wig or a synthetic wig. Not sure? They both have their advantages. It depends on your wants and needs...and budget. Check out the difference between human hair and synthetic to make your choice: Which One Is Better

Made your choice? Now pick your style. Unless you have chosen a style with bangs, you are going to watch 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!

So how exactly is a lace front wig made?  

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 front 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,  lace fronts are delicate… I mean… its lace after all ;-)  So careful not to pull it or stretch it out as it will lose its shape if you are too hard on it.

    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.

  • Penny Senrick: March 10, 2017

    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.
