What Is A Lace Front Wig?

Posted on June 14 2019

A lace front wig is a wig that has a thin, nearly invisible lace material to which hairs are tied in one by one. The result is very natural looking hairline and the illusion that the hairs grow from your scalp. So let’s go over everything you need to know about lace wigs, including what makes them special, and how to wear one.

What Does Lace Wigs Mean?

First things first. Lace fronts can be called a variety of names, including lace wigs, front lace wigs, and lace frontal wigs. You get the idea: there is lace at the front. But why? The lace at the front of these wigs provides added realism to the look. The lace is designed to mimic a natural hairline by blending with your skin tone. Keep in mind that this style only has lace at the front, so you will only get the blending effect at your forehead, though some continue down the part as well.


With better quality usually comes an increased price range, and while that rings true with lace front wigs, there is a wide range of qualities to choose from. That means that you can easily find a lace front wig in your price range, particularly when buying from a reputable seller like


Some people ask if these wigs are more difficult to clean. They honestly aren’t; to wash one, you follow protocol according to the type of hair, rather than the style of the wig. That being said, if you have a human hair lace wig, it needs to be washed like any other human hair wig, and if you have a synthetic lace front, it should be washed according to any other synthetic specifications. 


As with any wig, the lifespan will be determined by what it is made of. Synthetic lace front wigs can last for up to a year if they are well-cared for, and lace front human hair wigs that are well cared for can last up to two years!
