A lace front wig can have synthetic or human hair, with hair strands that are hand-tied to a transparent lace frontal. The base is attached to the front of the wig to mimic natural hair. High-quality lace front wigs usually come with combs or straps so you can wear them glueless or with glues, tapes, and other kinds of adhesives. Lace front wigs are generally more expensive than regular wigs, but they also look more natural and can last longer.
Consider the following factors to choose the best lace front wig.
Different laces are used for making a lace front wig. You may have heard of “brown lace,” “French lace,” “Italian lace,” “Swiss lace,” and “HD lace.”
The principle is the finer and more transparent the lace is, the more invisible it is, thus producing a more realistic headline for wearers.
HD lace, one type of Swiss lace, has a very fine mesh and is very transparent, so it will give you an undetectable look and can blend into all skin tones perfectly. There is no need for you to apply any makeup to hide the lace.
On the contrary, transparent lace is actually less transparent than HD lace and may need to be covered with makeup.
High-quality lace, combined with excellent plucking work done by the wig vendors, will bring you a very natural headline, which is critical for a high-quality wig.
Size of the Lace
When it comes to lace front wigs, hair strands are hand-tied to the lace to mimic your natural hair. You can style or part the hairs on the lace the same way you would part your natural hair. Therefore, the larger the lace, the better it is.
Some hair vendors use U shape or chopped-off lace to reduce the cost. But don’t worry, because here at Keswigs, we only construct our lace front wig using true rectangular shape lace.
The type of hair used to make the wigs will determine the necessary longevity and maintenance. There are two types of hairs used for making wigs: synthetic hair and human hair.
Synthetic lace front wigs are cheaper but usually less natural, durable, and cannot tolerate heat or dye.Human hair wigs can be classified into three types: virgin hair, non-Remy hair, and Remy hair.
Virgin hairs are collected from one donor and have never been chemically treated, and this type of hair is what all wigs offered by Keswigs are made of. With these wigs, you can feel free to dye, bleach, and heat style them as your natural hair.
Non-Remy hair is hair that has been chemically treated and collected from different donors. They are the lowest grade of human hair that you should try to avoid because a large portion of hair cuticles are removed during the manufacturing process.
Remy hair is human hair collected from different donors, and they have been physically treated to alight the hair cuticles in the same direction before going through chemical processing. They will last longer than non-Remy hair but cannot compare with virgin hair.
Wigs with high density are the key to a natural, full-volume look. The cost of making a 200-density wig is at least double that of a 120-density wig because more hairs are used, and more human resources are needed to create it.
Check whether the wig is true to length. In the wig industry, longer hairs are much more expensive than shorter hair. Some hair vendors will mix shorter hair into wigs to reduce costs. In such cases, the hair at the end of the wig will be much thinner than the root. So make sure to check to determine whether the wig is true to length or not.
No, wearing a glueless wig will not damage your hair as long as you have installed and taken it off properly. Most damages are caused by hair glue or adhesives left on your hair. In the case of a glueless wig, you need only a minimum amount of adhesive, so it’s a very safe option.
Glueless lace wigs are a popular option for those looking for a comfortable and natural-looking wig. While there are benefits to choosing a glueless lace wig, such as its easy application and removal, there are also some drawbacks to consider.
Ultimately, choosing whether to wear a glueless lace wig and how to care for it will depend on personal preference and lifestyle.
HD lace wigs are great for people who want to maintain a natural appearance while wearing wigs. However, these wigs come with greater upkeep compared to regular wigs. With proper care and maintenance, your HD lace wig can provide you with a beautiful, natural-looking hairstyle for many years.

It depends on what you need. A lace front wig is cheaper than a full lace wig, and it’s easier to apply. But a full lace wig will give you more creativity because you can style the hairpiece as you like. After all, the whole cap is made with free-parting lace.
No, lace front wigs will not damage your natural hair if you apply them properly. In fact, a wig is a protective hairpiece that is great if you have damaged hair. However, improper use of wig glue or adhesive may damage your hairline. So make sure no hair glue is applied to your natural hair.
Depending on the weather and humidity, you can wear a lace front wig for around two to four weeks. The quality of the wig will also determine how long you can wear it. The better the wig is, the longer it can stay on without maintenance.
Here are some helpful tips to extend the lifespan of your lace front wigs and keep them at tip-top conditions.
– Wash your wig regularly, usually after 8 to 12 wears. But not too much because overwashing will cause the hair to dry up and get brittle.
– Detangle your wigs with your fingers or a specially designed wide-tooth comb before washing.
– Make use of specially designed wig shampoo, conditioner, and hair products.
– Use lukewarm or cold water to wash your wig. DO NOT use hot water.
– Place the wig on a towel and air-dry it after a wash. Don’t use a hair dryer, and don’t rub or twist it.
– When the wig is dry, apply hair oil and store it in a dry, cold environment if you are not using it.
– Wig rotation will extend the lifespan of your wig.
