Lace Front Wig or Full Lace Wig?

Lace Front Wig or Full Lace Wig?

Some people get confused when they hear the various terms — lace wig, lace front wig and full lace wig. There is a difference so let’s set the record straight… The term ‘lace wig’ simple refers to any kind of lace wig in general. For example…a beauty supply store may advertise that they sell #lace wigs. However, when you are ordering a lace wig you need to differentiate between whether you want a ‘lace front wig’ or a ‘full lace wig’. The difference is as follows: A ‘full lace wig’ is a full head wig that is made from human or synthetic hair that is tied to a lace mesh base. The wig is totally handmade having each strand of hair hand-tied to the lace base. …no machine sewed wefts. This is significant because the absence of machine wefts allows the hair to flow freely and gives you unlimited parting options. Full lace wigs allow you to wear the hair up in a high ponytail and can be customized to your individual head measurements. You secure the wig to your head by using special wig adhesive which can be in either liquid or tape form. When secured properly the wigs can be worn for weeks without removing them. #Lace front wigs are also full head wigs. However, they differ from full lace wigs in that only a limited portion of the wig is hand-tied or handmade. The front portion of the hair is hand-tied to a  lace mesh base just like the full lace wig but the crown and back portion is made using hair wefts which are machine...
