13x4 Vs 13x6 Frontal

Lace front wigs are a great way of stepping up your hair game. Besides offering a natural-looking hairline, it can change your hair length, volume, and color. They can be made from actual human hair or synthetic fibers and are available in various colors, textures, and lengths to complement various hair types and styles.

This article will discuss two specific types of lace front wigs, the 13x4 frontal, and the 13x6 frontal. Specifically, we will cover their differences to determine which of the two is the better product for you.

Read on if you're interested in the specifics of 13x4 and 13x6 lace front wigs.

What is a 13x4 frontal?

A 13x4 frontal is a type of lace front wig with a 13-inch by 4-inch lace covering the frontal area. Its lace area reaches down to the temples and is composed of real human hair. The "13x4" refers to the size of the lace, which is 13 inches wide and 4 inches long.

Our 13x4 lace front wig has a 4.5-inch lace area, so you get a bigger free-parting area.

What is a 13x6 frontal?

A 13x6 frontal is a type of lace front wig similar to the 13x4 frontal, except its lace size is 13 inches wide and 6 inches deep. This means the 13x6 lace front wig's lace area can cover a larger portion of the head than the 13x4 frontal.

What is the difference between 13x4 and 13x6 frontal?

The lace size is the primary distinction between 13x4 and 13x6 frontals. As mentioned earlier, a 13x4 frontal's lace dimensions are 13 inches wide by 4 inches deep, while a 13x6 frontal is 13 inches wide by 6 inches deep. As a result, the 13x6 frontal will give greater coverage than the 13x4 frontal, which will cover a larger portion of your head.

Which is better, 13x4 or 13x6 frontal?

Choosing between a 13x4 and a 13x6 frontal depends on personal preference and the user's specific needs.

The amount of lace area covered will depend on the frontal's size. That said, the 13x6 frontal's bigger lace size means more parting room, allowing the wearer more freedom to part and style their hair any way they like. Bigger lace sizes also allow for more comfort and breathability in wearing your wig. 

If you're on a budget, a 13x4 lace front wig may be cheaper than a 13x6 frontal, but you'll have less styling freedom.

Ultimately, your personal preference and specific needs will determine whether you should get a 13x4 or a 13x6 frontal. If you prefer to have more styling versatility and breathability, opt for a 13x6 lace front wig. But if parting space is not a major concern and you want to save a few bucks, a 13x4 frontal may be a good option.

Pro Tip: When choosing a 13x4 or 13x6 lace frontal, ensure the lace front has a rectangular shape instead of a U-shape. Some wig makers will use U-shaped lace instead of a rectangular one, limiting the wig's styling versatility. So even if the frontal is 13x6 in size, it will still have less parting space as the U-shaped lace limits it to the middle area.
