The Difference Between Lace Front Wigs and Lace Top Closures

CopyFrom: Author:Alex Y DateTime:2014-09-27 Hits:0

Lace front wig and lace closure hair pieces have lace around the hair line to give the wearers more natural looks than conventional wigs used before. When used correctly, the lace blends with the wearer's natural skin tone to give the illusion of hair growing from the scalp. Wearing a lace front wig or a lace closure offers versatility in hair styling options.

Lace Front Wigs:
Available in a range of styles, hair types and colors, lace front wigs feature a thin, transparent piece of lace mesh around the hairline and sides, attached to a wig cap made from synthetic or human hair. Covering the entire head appeals to women looking to give their hair a break from daily manipulation, and the lace creates a realistic hair line, allowing the wearer part the hair for a natural look. The wearer must cut the lace to fit her own hair line and secure the wig with glue or tape around the perimeter of the head.

Lace Closures:
A lace closure covers only a portion of the head, and proves ideal for people who want to cover thinning hair or temporarily change their hairstyle. To cover thinning hair, the lace on the unit should blend with the wearer's skin tone before its glued or taped into position. Matching the lace closure with the wearer's hair style and color is the key to natural looks.

Lace front wigs and lace closures can be customized to fit an individual wearer's head or purchased as a stock piece from a website or brick and mortar beauty supply store on street. Ordering online allows for more style options, but not the ability to carefully examine the unit.

The price of a synthetic hair lace front wig ranges from $25 to $50, while human hair lace wigs cost $100 and up. A synthetic hair lace closure costs $15 to $30; human hair lace closures start at $30, depending on the size and type of hair and this price do not include shipping.

A trained hair stylist can demonstrate how to properly apply and maintain either unit, but following the manufacturer's application instructions will further improve the experience. The Queen hair products website claim:Most clients achieve a one to four weeks hold with the right adhesive, washing and nurturing their own hair in between applications.

Buyers can wear most lace front wigss or lace closures while participating in physical activities such as swimming, but Queen hair products suggests testing different adhesives in advance to determine which provides the best hold. Glue application and friction between the unit and the wearer's natural hair may cause a thinning hair line.
