Simply put: Lace front wigs offer the most natural looking hairline. If you want to maintain the illusion of naturally growing hair from the scalp line consider purchasing lace front wigs.
Whatever the reason for wearing a wig, every wig wearer has one goal in mind: for the wig to look as natural as possible. Unless you are going to a masquerade ball or Halloween event, most people want their wig to look as natural as possible by having the hair appear to be growing out of their scalp along any exposed hairline. That is exactly what is achieved when a wearing a good quality lace front wig.
These wigs have a section of lace along the front edge. This section of lace is usually between half an inch and three inches depending on the wig manufacturer. The longer the lace line the more natural the look that is achieved. This section of lace has the individual hair strands attached, frequently by hand, to the lace. Most synthetic lace front wig constructions have cap back constructions that are usually machine-made, preventing you from wearing the hair swept up in the back or in a ponytail. If you desire these styling options you need to look for a FULL lace wig, which is a more expensive.
Lace front wigs are available with synthetic hair or human hair. There are many benefits to human hair lace wigs, beyond the natural look and feel of the product. Lace front wigs with human hair can be permed, washed, and styled. You can even shower or sleep in them. Quality human hair products offer all the options for styling, as does natural hair. However, they are considerably more expensive.
