Lace front vs full lace wigs: what’s the difference?

Wigs come in a wide variety of forms. You have wigs for basically every purpose depending on the size, style, length, fiber, color, cap construction, etc. Among the many factors to consider when choosing a wig that suits your needs and purpose, the type of cap construction has been a very confusing trail for many wig wearers to navigate. Whether you’re a veteran wig wearer or a beginner, it is often hard to differentiate between the two popular type of lace cap construction: the lace front wigs and the full lace wigs.

 

In this article, we give a comprehensive breakdown of the differences between these two wig types and which one is best for you.

 

Let’s start by introducing the wig types.

 

Lace front wigs

Lace front wigs, as the name implies, have the lace in front, giving the illusion of a hairline. The front edges of these type of wigs have a lace panel that resembles the appearance of the scalp while the back of the wigs are made of a thicker material with the hair strands attached to this

 material in wefts. These wigs give realistic hairlines and are generally affordable, but they in turn limit the styling options you can use.

 

Full lace wigs

Full lace wigs have a base made entirely of lace. This lace covers the entire scalp, allowing wearers to part the wig however they want. Full lace wigs are more realistic as they give the appearance of hair growing directly from the scalp. As they are more comfortable and more delicately made, full lace wigs are more expensive than their counterparts.

 

Differences between lace front and full lace wigs

Base construction

Lace front wigs are made of lace at the front and thicker material at the back, while full lace wigs are made with lace all through.

 

Appearance

Lace front wigs can only give the wearer a realistic hairline when worn, whereas full lace wigs can give the entire scalp a natural appearance.

 

Versatility

Your styling options when wearing lace front wigs are restricted due to the lack of lace at the back and sides. Full lace wigs, on the other hand, are very versatile as they give the illusion of a natural scalp. Hence, partings can be placed anywhere on full lace wigs.

 

Price

Lace front wigs are generally more affordable than full lace wigs. Full lace wigs are costlier due to it being handcrafted and time-consuming to manufacture.

 

Durability

Due to the thicker material used in the back, lace front wigs have a generally longer lifespan. Full lace wigs, on the other hand, have to be carefully maintained due to the entire cap being made of lace.

 

Which is better: lace front or full lace wigs?

The answer depends on your situation and preferences. Despite full lace wigs being breathable and permitting all kinds of styling, they drive a higher price tag. Lace fronts have a larger hair volume and a natural-looking hairline, but can’t be styled in as many ways as full lace wigs.

 

So, do your research. Consider factors like your budget or preferred style before making a choice. And above all, always go for high-quality wigs from reputable retailers like eternalwigs.com to ensure your wigs are both stunning and long-lasting.
