Wigs 101: How to Choose a Lace Front Wig

Choosing a Lace Front Wig


Choosing your first wig may seem a little intimidating what with so many options to choose from. So, in today’s blog post we’re going to give you a few tips on how to choose your first lace front wig.


Style and Texture (Human or Synthetic) 

The first thing you want to think about is what style and color you are looking for, a short bob like Brown Sugar BS206, straight and long like Outre Risa, or beautiful curly like Freetress Victory

We stock both human wigs and synthetic wigs. Human wigs usually come in more natural shades and can last longer, whereas synthetic units can come in a wider range of colors and generally cost less. Both human and synthetic wigs can last months with the proper care. 

Parting Style

L-Part and C-Part units, like ­­­Freetress Softy and Zury Sis Cantu have a small curved parting area shaped like, you guessed it, either an L or a C. If you are the kind of person who likes to switch up your part from the side, to the middle and back to the other side, then you might prefer a unit with 4 by 4 inches of parting space such as Model Model Sena. Or you could choose a frontal wig such as O-Remi BVWF31 which has a much larger area for you to part.

Which brand? 

There are so many fantastic brands to choose from, and we stock a large number of them including Bobbi Boss, Freetress, Model Model, Outre, Vivica Fox, and much more! 

Hard or Soft Lace?

There are good things about both hard and soft lace so we recommend that you give them both a try. Hard lace is great for ensuring versatility with your unit because it doesn’t rise up when you want to style it, for example in a top knot. However, soft lace is very comfortable on your edges and if you are going to be wearing wigs daily for an extended period of time could be the right choice for you.

Will the wig fly off? - We know your thinking it, so here's our answer... 

Most wigs come with combs in the front and back of the unit, and also adjustable straps so that you can snugly (but not tightly) fit the wig to your head. Unless someone pulls it off, it’s not likely that your wig will slip off completely.
