When most people think of “lace” they think of delicate fabric material made with a web-like look to create an intricate pattern that is typically used to make clothing and fabric decor, like curtains. In the world of wigs, “lace” refers to a fine, sheer mesh that hairs are individually tied to. A wig labeled as “lace front” means that a piece of sheer lace mesh is located at the front of the wig cap.
Hairs are individually hand tied onto the lace front piece in order to create a more natural appearance. Wigs with lace fronts can be styled away from the face because the hairline is nearly invisible and the scalp can be seen through the mesh. You can also pull the hair of the wig back or tuck it behind your ears without the wig cap being seen. This gives you versatility and a very realistic look.
A lace front wig cap can also contain other types of construction elements such as a monofilament top, a hand tied cap, a capless style, or be a classic machine made cap. Because lace front wigs will give you such a natural looking hair line, many wig wearers desire a cap that combines a lace front with a monofilament or hand tied cap to get the most realistic look with the most versatility, as these types of caps also allow for the hair to be parted in multiple directions.
