Philadelphia Lace Front Wigs

Lace Front Wigs Philadelphia | Rosalind Stella’s Wig BoutiqueWhen you decide to try a wig or hair piece for the first time, there are a lot of options to choose from and the vast variety can be overwhelming. You can choose between synthetic hair and human hair, or maybe you just want to enhance your look with extensions or toppers. Then there is cap construction, like monofilament and lace. How do you know which style is right for you? While the internet is a great resource for research and to learn the differences between construction and styles, there’s no replacement for professional salons like Rosalind Stella’s Wig Boutique. Experienced stylists can help you select the right style to match your needs and lifestyle. To give you a quick study guide and a head start before you visit us, below are highlights of one of the most popular types of wigs, lace front wigs.

Seamless Beauty

By far one of the best benefits of a lace front wig is the natural look it achieves. This is certainly one reason it is such a popular style (especially with celebrities like Beyoncé). In fact, lace front wigs are typically used in the costume department of theaters and on television and film sets because of their natural look.

The lace front construction creates a natural look of hair growth along the hairline, making the wig appear seamless. Another huge benefit to lace front wigs is their versatility. Because of the seamless look achieved by the lace, you can actually pull your hair back and style it away from your face. Unfortunately, this look is not readily available with many other wig styles because you often have to tease, fluff up or fill in hair around the hairline to “hide” where the wig is attached. Going one step further towards the natural look, some lace front wigs also feature short, fine hairs at the edge of the hairline to further hide the wig seam.

Lightweight and Comfortable

Since lace is considered such a delicate material, you may be wondering how a lace front wig is made and how it can support all of those hair fibers. The material in a lace wig is constructed with sheer lace-like material and dyed the color of flesh. So you can actually get different colors of lace to match your skin tone, or some wigs can be dyed to match. This is important to create the seamless, natural look. The hair fibers are then hand-tied to the fine lacey material, creating a realistic hairline.

The entire base of the wig can be made of the lace-like material, or just the front can be made of lace while the rest of the base is constructed from other synthetic materials. Full lace wigs are more fragile and expensive than just lace front wigs, and the delicacy leads to a shorter lifespan for the wig. Philadelphia lace front wigs can be made from synthetic hair or human hair.

There are two ways the lace front wig can be purchased: ready-to-wear or customizable, meaning the lace may need to be dyed or trimmed to perfectly fit your head and blend in with your hairline. A lace front wig exposes your hairline, so it covers less of your head than other types of wigs would. This means less material and less weight, making the wig more comfortable. Lace front wigs tend to be more expensive than other wig constructions because of the materials they are made with and the natural look that they provide.
