Before you go ahead and shop for some lace wigs, however, you do have to realize that these wigs do come in two different types – the lace full wigs and the lace front wig glue or sew-in. Both of these wigs have their advantages but in order to choose the best one for you, it is important that you understand their differences as well.
Lets start with Lace Front Wigs: A lace front wig has a sheer lace strictly in the front edges of the unit that are cut off just prior to be installed on your head. It provides the illusion of a natural hair line. The base of a lace front wig isn’t made of lace, but of a thicker material. Though a really good lace front wig can cost you anywhere from 300-400 dollars you can also find cheaper versions, depending on the texture, quality, length, and style you are going for.
Full Lace Wigs: A full lace wigs have a base that is made fully of lace unlike the lace front wig. It covers the entire head and must be installed slightly different than a lace front wig that is only attached at the front edges of your head. It is best to wear a wig cap especially when installing a full lace wig, since it will be covering your entire head.
