Newport Hair Loss Center has prepared this guide to provide you with all the essential information about lace front hair wigs including how they are constructed, how to wear and care for them and a lot more.
What a Lace Front Hair Wig Actually Means
A lace front is a type of wig construction in which the lace material remains attached to the front portion of the wig. Human or synthetic hair is hand-tied to the wig in a way that looks natural. Like the name suggests, a lace front wig is designed to cover the front area of the head. The popularity of these wigs has increased over time because the wig hair seems to grow out of the scalp.
Lace front wigs don’t just look extremely realistic, but they also keep the scalp cool and comfortable in the summertime.
The lace material used in the lace front wig is of the finest quality. While the wig remains secure on the scalp, it also allows the scalp to breathe easily. Most of all, these wigs are also well-known for their versatility. After unboxing, you can give any style to the wig hair, depending on your individual preferences. After the wig has been shaped and styled in a particular way, the hairline still looks very natural. If taken care of well, the wig can last for a long time.

Lace Front Wigs: Human Hair or Synthetic Hair?
Lace front wigs are made from either real human hair or synthetic hair. Before you head out to a wig store or a hair loss center such as the Newport Hair Loss Center, you should know how a human hair wig is different from a synthetic hair wig. This will help you choose the most ideal option.
Human Hair Lace Front Wigs:
Lace front wigs made from real human hair are the most ideal match for your hair loss needs. Designed by expert craftsmen, each of these wigs takes a lot of time to construct.

Synthetic Hair Lace Front Wigs:
Synthetic hair is man-made fibers, not real hair. Wig makers employ a special technology to manufacture synthetic hair in order to give it a look and feel like that of original hair. You can apply different styles to synthetic hair wigs too, but the options are limited. For styling these lace fronts, you will need to use wide-toothed combs and wig brushes.
Since human hair wigs are made from harvested human hair, they are more expensive than the synthetic versions. If you plan to achieve a natural hairline and an extremely natural appearance overall, you should always opt for human hair lace front wigs that also offer many other benefits.

How a Lace Front Wig is Different from a Regular Wig?
A lace front wig is an expensive and gorgeous wig. It takes a great deal of expertise to construct such a wig. Unlike a regular wig, a lace front wig has all the hair hand-tied to the fine lace material. The lace material is of such fine quality that it becomes invisible once the wig has been installed.
The construction of a high quality lace front wig is quite unique. It gives an impression that the hair is growing right out of the scalp. That is exactly why these human hair wigs look so natural and blend seamlessly.

How a Lace Front Wig is Installed?
A wig should always be worn in a way that people cannot find you are wearing one. That is why how you install the lace front wig makes a great deal of difference. If you are a first-timer, you should learn all the steps of the installation process in proper detail. After unboxing the product, you may wonder whether the lace front wig is exactly the size of your head. At the Newport Hair Loss Center, our specialists will walk you through the entire process. Better still, you can have our hairstylists install your chosen lace front wig in an accurate manner.
Given below are the key steps that you will need to follow in order to have the lace front wig fitted on to your head.
Flatten Your Hair:
If you have a fair amount of hair on the head, you will first need to flatten it for the wig to sit properly. For those who have only little hair or none at all, using a wig liner is essential. The hair on the head needs to be brushed back and flattened in a way that the hair is even across the scalp. This is an important part of the lace front installation process.
Prepare Your Skin:
The hairline needs some preparation too. Any amount of oil or dirt along the hairline needs removal. Wash your forehead along the hairline with a gentle cleanser. People with sensitive skin should apply scalp-protecting serum after alcohol has been rubbed. In any case, do not forget to pat the hairline dry before you place the lace front wig on the head.
Place the Wig:
Now, it is time to place the wig on the head. Tilt your head a little towards the front and slip the wig on to your head just like you put on a bathing cap. Now, keep the head in an upright position and push the front portion of the wig towards the back till it is in the same line as the hairline. Tuck in any hair that is outside of the wig. Feel if the wig exerts any degree of pressure on your head. There should be no pressure at all. If there is pressure, this means the wig size is less than the size of your head. The wig, once secured, should neither feel too tight nor too loose. It should be an exact fit as per the size of your head.
Style the Wig:
Once the lace front wig is secured, you can now move on to style to suit your individual needs. Based on whether you have a natural hair lace front wig or a synthetic hair lace front wig, you will need to use different types of styling tools to do the job. Real hair lace front wigs have hair just like your original hair. You can style them in the same way as you style your own hair.
Lace front wigs are just like the real thing. They look so realistic that no one can tell if you have it fitted on to your head. If you have a question in regard to how a lace front wig should be worn, feel free to talk to one of our wig fitting specialists at the Newport Hair Loss Center in Los Angeles, Orange County or San Diego. Our experts will not only tell you exactly how you should wear the wig, but they will also equip you with some of the most valuable tips for accurate installation. If you plan to have a perfect fit, it is best to have the lace front wig installed as well as styled right at our hair loss center in order to achieve the most natural look.
How to Care for Your Lace Front Wig?
Now that you have learned how to properly wear a lace front wig, it is time to know how you can give it the best care.
Here’s the best tip: Treat your lace front wig just like your own hair. If you keep this in mind, you will never ignore caring for the wig. Always use branded hair care products to keep the quality of the wig intact. It is a good idea to use hair shampoo and conditioner from Amani, a highly reputed brand.
Using poor quality hair care products from the market to wash, clean and condition the lace front wig will ruin its quality. Local products contain toxic chemicals, which cause harm to the color and texture of the wig. When it is time to cleanse the wig, always do it in a gentle manner. Also, remember not to wash the wig too many times, as it will again damage the quality of the hair wig. How many times you should wash it depends on how often you wear the wig. Even if you wear the lace front everyday, it is enough to wash it twice a month. Avoid the application of heavy oils to the human hair lace front wig, as it will make the wig oily and greasy.
How Durable are Lace Front Wigs?
Real hair lace front wigs are expensive. So, it is crucial to know how long these wigs will last. The duration of these wigs depends on their actual quality, how frequently you use them and how you maintain them. If proper care is taken, a 100% human hair lace front wig will last for up to three years.
How to Choose a Lace Front Wig?
It is tough for beginners to find or identify high quality lace front wigs. If you plan to buy the best of these wigs, you should avoid going to the local market or a general wig store. Instead, you should head to a reputed wig store or a well-known hair loss center such as the Newport Hair Loss Center.
Lace front hair wigs are available in a variety of colors. Determine the color that you like and then see if you can find a wig of that specific color. You can also have the wig dyed by a professional.
Length of Your Hair:
There is a lace front wig to suit every length. Based on whether you suffer from hair thinning or partial hair loss, you should know which front lace will be most suitable for your hair length.
You need to take your current hairstyle into account. You don’t want to buy a lace front wig that doesn’t match the style of your hair. Also, these wigs are available in a wide variety of styles. But it is crucial to determine your favorite style or the new hair style that you would like to switch to.
Lace front wigs made from human hair can be colored and styled as per need. If you are unable to find exactly the color you like, you should seek the help of a hairstylist to have it dyed for you.
