A lace wig or a lace front wig is a special type of hairpiece or wig designed with a sheer lace base. Lace front wigs are made with real
human hair or synthetic hair is which tied, by hand, to a sheer lace base.Full lace wigs may have a base made entirely of lace while the
more common tactic is a lace front wig which has the sheer lace only at the front where the hairline is visible. The remainder of the wig
is made out of a less fragile material which is less susceptible to ripping or tearing than the lace. Full lace wigs can be pulled into a high
ponytail and updo's, as opposed to lace front wigs. The lace is only in the front half of the wig, to allow the customer to part the hair
any way he or she wants. If a lace front wig is pulled into a ponytail it will be obvious that it is a wig.The lace wig is usually attached
with the assistance of glues and tapes, which are applied to the front hairline area.
Once the glue has dried, the front lace portion of the wig is affixed to the area where the glue has been applied on the hairline, creating
a tight bond which keeps the lace wig in place on the head. Some lace wigs also have what is referred to as "baby hair" around the temple
areas which is used to cover up any visible signs of lace on the forehead, and the baby hair also helps to create a realistic hairline. There
are several different types of lace wig cap styles. The most common is the full lace wig cap. This requires glue and tape for application.
