A lace front wig is a wig made with human hair hand tied to a lace base. Lace front and full lace wigs are the newest innovation in non-surgical hair replacement systems. The hair is knotted into the lace and has the illusion as though growing from the scalp. Lace front and full lace wigs have been worn by celebrities for years but are recently becoming known to the general public. While customizing your full lace or lace front wig it is very important to choose the right density to allow for the most natural look.
Hair density refers to how thick the hair is. The hair density that you order is really based on personal choice and what looks best on you. Most women achieve a natural appearance with light to medium or medium density; however, your choice will depend on your styling preferences and individual profile.
Naturally growing hair grows differently for every person. Hair can grow thin (light) around the perimeter (hairline) and thick (medium) in the middle. Hair can also grow thick (medium) around the perimeter (hairline) and thickest (heavy) in the middle. Below are the most popular choices for densities in the lace front/ and full lace wig industry.
o Light Density: This density is 60% thickness of an average head of hair. It is recommended for people whose natural hair does not have much volume or thickness. Light density on a lace front or full lace wig shows a fair amount of scalp. This density is popular with elderly women.
o Light to Medium: This density is 100% thickness of an average head of hair. This is the most popular density requested for custom lace front and full lace wigs. It means that the lace front or full lace wig will have light density at the hairline and medium density every where else. This is the most natural looking and most recommended by top stylists. This density is suitable for most women.
o Heavy: This density is 150% thickness of an average head of hair. This is too much hair for most women to look natural. This density in lace front wigs or full lace wigs is usually worn by performers who desire a heavy style. Not recommended for a person looking for a natural look in a lace front or full lace wig.
Remember whatever density that you choose, lace front and full lace wigs provide the most natural looking extensions in the market today.
