Let's chat about lace-front vs non lace-front wigs. We know how overwhelming it can be to choose the perfect wig, but don't worry, we've got your back. Let's break it down and find out which option might be the best fit for you.
What is a lace-front wig?
So, let's start with lace-front wigs. Picture this: a wig with a sheer lace panel at the front that runs from ear to ear. This delicate lace allows for a natural-looking hairline, as you can't see where the wig starts and your forehead begins. It's like magic! The rest of the wig is made from a comfortable and breathable material, and the hair is attached strand by strand to mimic the look of real hair growth.
Lace-front wigs are all about giving you that flawless, seamless, and super realistic appearance. Lace-front wigs are awesome because it means you do not have to blend any of your own hair with the piece to make it look realistic- the lace-front does all the hard work for you. Or, if you don't have any of your own hair, it'll give you the illusion that the hair is growing right out of your scalp.
At Lusta, we have a few different types of lace-front wigs, The Lace-Front Essentials, the Game Changer and The Luxe.
What is a non lace-front wig?
Now, let's talk about non lace-front wigs. These beauties are designed to be worn with your natural hairline exposed. Instead of a lace panel, the hair is sewn into the cap in a way that creates a more defined hairline. You simply blend your own hair with the wig for a flawless look.
At Lusta, we have one non lace-front wig, The Essentials Wig.
Can you wear a lace-front wig if you have your own hair?
Absolutely! Lace-front wigs are incredibly versatile, making them a fantastic choice for women with their own hair. You can just tuck your natural hair under a wig cap and then slip on your lace-front wig for that extra volume, length, or a whole new hair color. The hair at the hair line will look like it's growing right out of your scalp.
Can you wear a non lace-front wig if you do not have your own hair?
If you don't have your own hair, you'll need to create a seamless blend between your natural hairline and the wig. One way to do this is by getting bangs cut into the wig. This little trick works like a charm, hiding the transition between your hair and the wig, and making it look like it's all yours!
Which is right for you?
Now, this is where it gets personal. The choice between a lace-front or non lace-front wig really depends on your preferences, lifestyle, and comfort level. Let's break it down to make your decision easier:
Natural Hairline vs. Faux Hair Line: The most natural looking hair line will always be the one that is growing right out of your head. So, if you have the ability to blend your own hair, you might go for a non lace-front wig. However, if you don't have your own hair line, or your hair line is thin, then a faux hair line aka a lace-front is about to become your BFF.
Budget: Lace-front wigs are usually a bit pricier than non lace-front wigs due to the intricacy of their design. If budget is a concern, a non lace-front wig can be a fabulous and more affordable choice.
Remember, this is all about reclaiming your confidence, and your hair is just one aspect of that journey. Whether you choose a lace-front wig for that undetectable look or a non lace-front wig for its versatility, the most important thing is that you feel empowered and beautiful.
As someone who has experienced hair loss myself, I know how transformative wearing a wig can be. It's like stepping into a new version of yourself, one with endless possibilities and unstoppable confidence. So, take your time, try on different styles, and find the one that speaks to your heart.
We're here to support you every step of the way. At Lusta, we've seen women embrace their unique beauty and rock their wigs with pride. You're not alone in this journey, and we're thrilled to be a part of it!
So, my lovely ladies, whether you choose a lace-front or non lace-front wig, remember this: you are strong, you are beautiful, and you are worthy of every happiness life has to offer.
