Fairly new to the world of lace wigs, I was overwhelmed by the plethora of wig options when I began my search. I had no idea what to look for choosing first, a traditional lace front. After accidentally ordering a 360 lace I discovered that the wig could be worn pulled up in the back. Hmm I thought, what other options are there? Well, the Lace Front Vs Full Lace article below will those questions and more.
Sometimes the nature hair community moves so fast that we forget that not everyone understands what’s going on and it can be a bit confusing. Case in point what’s the difference between a silk closure and a lace closure? No worries we’ve got you covered here!

It’s really not as difficult to understand once you break down the word with pictures (I’m a visual learner … so images work best for me) Let’s start with Lace Front Wigs: A lace front wig is exactly what it sounds like. This wig has a sheer lace strictly in the front edges of the unit that are cut off just prior to being installed on your head. The lace front wig provides the illusion of a natural hairline. The base of a lace front wig isn’t made of lace, but of a thicker material that is still comfortable/wearable. Lace front wigs are often worn by many celebrities, but there are a few cons to this type of unit. With the baby hair effect, there can often be issues with the tape/glue used to adhere the wig to the front edge of the skin.
For starters, you are putting excessive amounts of stress on the perimeter of your edges if done too frequently. This can cause permanent damage if not handled correctly. The tape/glue can also interact with the skin and form a pulling type effect that will be a dead giveaway. Most times you can also see the glue if too much is installed We’ve seen this occur too many celebrities in the limelight as well. Though a really good lace front wig can cost you anywhere from 300-400 dollars you can also find cheaper versions at a beauty supply shop, depending on the texture, quality, length, and style you are going for.
