If you have never heard of front lace wigs you really are not in the minority. I, for one knew nothing of them until fairly recently. The reason for this is that they are such an amazing piece of hair styling technology so as to be almost invisible. Did you know that an awful lot body wave wig of Hollywood stars and some of the worlds biggest divas all use front lace wigs to great effect, so you can understand why a lace wig is such a fantastic investment.
We all dream of having longer, fuller and more manageable hair but, it is so hard to maintain this constantly; especially when hair styles are ever changing and to have an elfin crop one day only to discover that long straight hair is so in the next week can be a real set back.
So, to be able to keep up with fickle hair style fashion simply and easily is amazing. Thinking about it logically, how else would the stars manage it without some help? I do not mean having a stylist available 24/7, I mean to keep up with the short, long, straight and curly seemingly effortlessly?
I cannot believe that we have been hood winked for so long, but then front lace wigs are something very special indeed. The traditional form of wig involves a somewhat bulky cap having synthetic hair attached using grips and fasteners. Even with the best will in the world they do not fit snugly against the scalp so it is difficult to achieve a natural look from the beginning.
With a front lace wig, natural hair is woven into a delicate lace cap and double knotted giving a totally natural appearance at the hair root. Also, because the lace is so fine the overall look at the hairline is as normal as your own hair can be. They really are such a huge step forward in wig making technology, it is no wonder that it has taken us so long to catch on to them, we just have not realised, how could we?
Having an amazing hair day every day can become a reality very easily with a front lace wig. You can subject it to the kind of hairstyling regimes that your own hair would find difficult to cope with. There is only so much in the way of heat or chemicals that your own hair can put up with before you start to see the negative effects on the condition and manageability.
Front lace wigs also have something to offer other than just banishing bad hair days. If you are unfortunate enough to be suffering from a distressing hair loss condition such as alopecia or trichotillomania for instance, I can recommend the use of lace wigs for cosmetic purposes too. As they look so totally natural, the only person who needs to know that you are wearing them is you and I am sure that will go a long way in giving you a huge confidence boostI had thought I was pretty up to date on all things hair and fashion but, I have recently discovered front lace wigs and wow, are they something special. There was me thinking that all of these Hollywood leading ladies just looked amazing courtesy of a 24/7 stylist and now I find out that they use these lace wigs to keep them looking perfectly styled and stunning all of the time.
I am not sure I feel happy or cheated to be honest. I mean, cheated because they have had some awesome help in the form of front lace wigs and have so many changing hairstyles the likes of which i could never hope to keep up with; or happy because I then realised that we can all have the chance to look this good using lace wigs too.
Anyway, that aside what are lace wigs and more importantly what is so special about them? It might help if i give you a brief explanation of what is involved with a traditional wig. Obviously they have been around for a long time and tended to be constructed by attaching synthetic hair to a rather bulky cap using grips and fasteners.
The problem with them is the lack of natural flow and movement in the hair; they give a rigid, stiff appearance that unfortunately can make it quite obvious that the person is wearing a wig. By comparison, a lace wig is at the fore front of wig making technology and the most amazing thing about them is how natural they look even close up.
The lace is in fact a very fine, gossamer thin nylon that can be dyed to suit and match skin tone. The cap allows it to sit snugly against your scalp while you wear it and really does give the whole wig and hair line a totally natural look. Because the hair is woven individually by hand and then double knotted into the lace, the roots look amazingly real too. They have to be seen and worn to really appreciate how fantastic they are.
Of course this sort of quality is not cheap but, when you stop to consider how much you spend on salon visits getting your hair fixed you will see that your lace wig very quickly pays for itself. Also, when you think of the versatility and unlimited amount of styles you can have so easily and all without subjecting your own hair to heat or chemicals in order to look fabulous it is a huge bonus.
