What do Beyonce, Tyra Banks, Ashanti, Jennifer Lopez and Gwen Stefani have in common? They all were lace front wigs. Celebrity lace front wigs are the newest rage in modern hair replacement. We refer to these hair replacement units as “celebrity” lace front wigs because so many celebrities wear them. When applied properly the lace blends into the wig wearer’s skin and is virtually undetectable to the eye even upon close scrutiny. The lace creates an invisible hairline which gives the appearance that the hair from the wig is actually growing out of the wearer’s scalp. The result is no one will know that you are wearing a wig unless you tell them. Lace front wigs are the most realistic looking wigs on the market. They are constructed with very thin French or Swiss lace thus the name lace front wig. For a long time, lace front wigs were only available to the Hollywood elite, but, the secret is out and these wigs are now available for purchase by the general public. This means you too can have gorgeous and glamorous hair just like your favorite celebrity.
Celebrity lace front wigs can have a cap construction that is either: 100% lace, monofilament or polyurethane. The 100% lace cap is the most popular. 100% lace means the entire wig cap is made of lace. Of the two lace types used in the construction process the “French” lace is the most popular and most commonly used. The design of the French lace material is similar to a “window screen” in which you have very small holes. The wig hair is then hand tied to this lace mesh strand by strand. It is a tedious process. Monofilament Wig Caps are the second most popular wig caps used for making celebrity lace front wigs. The material of these caps is similar to “women’s pantyhose material” with very tiny holes so close together that it looks like skin when bonded to skin. Polyurethane Wig Caps also have a very natural looking front hairline area but tend to hold heat which can be very uncomfortable in hot climates, as such, these wigs are not as popular as the French/Swiss Lace and Monofilament Lace front Wigs.
Celebrity lace front wigs are generally very high quality expensive wigs. They are extremely safe and when worn correctly will not damage your hair and hairline the way weaves and extensions can. These wigs are highly in vogue because of their naturalism and versatility. They are extremely durable and can be worn at different occasions and under diverse weather conditions. Lace front wigs are available in a wide range of designs, styles, colors, lengths, and sizes and can be customized to fit your unique head dimensions. Unlike regular wigs, a lace front wig can be parted in any direction which means you have endless styling options. You can find a wide array of custom and celebrity style lace front wigs from shops that specialize in these hair systems. It may be difficult to find suppliers of these wigs in your local area unless you live in or near a large metropolitan area. If that is the case there are many lace front wig shops online such as lacefrontwigshop.com that should be able to facilitate your needs.
