Lace front wig and full lace wig: What are they?

Full lace wig

Full lace wig refers to the wig with the entire lace base. In other words, this method is designed from a lace cap that covers the whole head and 100 % human hair is knotted into this by hand. Because almost all the steps of making a wig are made by hand, it is regarded as a very complicated hairstyle.

If you want to buy a standard full lace wig, it’s important to determine if there is a strip of stretch lace over the top of the crown or not. This will allow basic movement, for example, hair growth underneath or variations in head size. For new wig wearer, using a wig can be a little bit hard and complex, as you need to bond all the lace cap to your head during the installation.


– Many wig wearers agree that full lace wig is more versatile because it can be parted anywhere. Therefore, you can style the hair in various ways.

– A full lace wig with lace all around allows you to pursue a ponytail hairstyle. This helps bring a more natural look than lace front wig. Also, this type of wig is a good option for getting the perfect twist out.


One of the clearest cons of full lace wig is that it tends to be slightly more expensive, which may be a barrier if you are on a budget.

Human lace front wig refers to the wig with a piece of lace put at the hairline position of the head. Basically, the size of the lace is 13×4 of 13×6 inch. The other part of the wig is made of thin and firm material and human hair is also sewn into this. In general, wearing a lace front wig is simple. You just need to bond the lace part to your head and this process doesn’t take too much time.


– This kind of hair is at more flexible and affordable prices and of course, this type is much cheaper than the full lace wig.

– Thanks to the lace hairline, the style promises to give you a natural & authentic look just in a quite short period of time.

– This type of wig has limited flexibility. The truth is you can not part the lace front wig anywhere. If you like a twist out, the lace front wig is not a solution.

– Wearing a lace front wig that is not secure with adhesive or tape can be a little bit risky. The hair can slip back or off your head, which is never an interesting experience. Also, if you do not take care of the hair carefully, this method can cause damages to the scalp and hairline when you use adhesive or glue to fix the lace.
