“Wigs are growing very fast as people want to change their hairstyle as they want to look different from the crowd,” said a famous hairstylist Akki Shirakawa who worked at Lady Gaga and other famous fashion houses. Wigs are the most in-demand fashion of today’s women as they desire to be different from others.
It is very much important that you choose the right wig for yourself. A wig helps to secure your natural hair from damage and give you a hair break to grow back stronger. There are a few variations of lace wigs, full lace, lace front, half lace etc. However, all these diverse categories of wigs are named after how the cap is made. Here we differentiate between lace front wig and full lace wig.
Lace front wig
A lace front wig is a type of wig in which hair is hand-tied and has nearly invisible lace at the front part. This feature gives a natural-looking illusion that hairs are growing in front of the scalp. They come in natural humane hair as well as synthetic hairs.
The life span of a wig depends upon its use and care. Usually, synthetic wigs last up to six months while natural hair wigs last up to one year. Humane hair lace front wigs are costly and they can be washed easily with the help of shampoo or a detergent.
It is recommended not to use these wigs under wet conditions or while showering as there is a risk of wrapping or stretching of light material. It is necessary to clean the wig regularly as oil, sweat and odours can collect in its delicate material.
There are some tips to keep in mind that you should never try to pull off your wig before losing its adhesive material. Also do not apply any sort of glue or tape on biological hairs.

Full lace wig
Unlike lace front wig, the base in a full lace wig is made completely of lace and it shows that they are more versatile and can be worn in different styles. This puts them more expansive than other sorts of wigs. It can be installed a little bit differently than a lace front wig and it covers all of your head.
It is good to wear a cape before installing a full lace wig since it will be cowling all of your head. They come in textures like a bob wig or a straight wig. You can make different styles of this wig with a comb without damaging the cap.
These wigs are undetectable and widely used by celebrities and in the medical field by cancer patients or patients suffering from alopecia. They are breathable and are light but somewhat challenging for a newbie to wear. They come in lightweight, short as well as a long ponytail.
Due to their qualities, they are more expensive than lace front wigs and usually have high density. Depending upon these mentioned characteristics you can select a wig that fulfils your needs and make you look classy.
