What is a Full Lace Wig?
From the new crop of Hollywood hotties to the timeless beauty and elegance of stars from yesteryear, Tinseltown’s most gorgeous and glamorous women have relied on wigs and hairpieces to enhance their magnificence. Their flawless tresses have been a mystery for quite some time so when it was revealed to the masses, it was a breath of fresh air for women everywhere. The secret revealed is now commonly known as a Full Lace Wig. Even though the trend have gained steam in popularity, not everyone is in the know or fully understand the features or how you install them.
Full Lace Wig also called “lace unit,” “hair system” or “cranial hair prosthetic,” create the illusion that hair is growing out of one’s scalp. Full Lace Wigs are virtually undetectable because they're constructed with a gauze-like lace material in either French or Swiss lace and are comfortable for extended wear. The lace fabric is nearly transparent, so it takes on the approximate color of the wearer’s natural scalp. The creation of these wigs is unique as they take hours or sometimes days to make as the hair is ventilated individually strand by strand onto a lace base.
The primary advantage of a Full Lace Wig is its breath-ability and the ability to part or style it the same way you would style your hair. You can wear it off your face, in high or low ponytails and up-dos. No matter how you style it, you will have a natural look.
One of the most important things to know is that the correct installation is the key to a flawless look. Insuring that you cut the hairline of your unit to match your hairline is the first step in making sure you achieve a natural look. It is also important to learn the proper way to take care of the origin of hair used when constructing your wig.
There are a lot of options available on the market; don't be afraid to ask questions, take your time and enjoy your fabulous new Full Lace Wig.
