The Lace Front Wig....Is It For the Everyday Average Chick?

Don't know what a lace front looks like? Just look at a picture of Beyonce, Tyra, or Mary J. Blige (I'm not too crazy about about Ms. Blige's wig) They are all wearing a lace front wig.
Lace fronts were first developed for cancer patients and women with alopecia. Celebrities have been wearing them for years. These wigs were always used in movies, and drag queens have always used them.

Lace fronts are wigs that have a small piece of lace mesh attached to the front which you attach to your head (by double-sided tape or glue), giving the illusion of a seamless hairline. If one is custom made, human hair is individually pulled through the lace, for an even more realistic look.

Unlike a weave, you can get more versatility out of a lace front. Also, you can change your style easily and make it look natural on a video because you can't see where the lace starts or ends.

A custom made lace front with the most expensive hair (Remy Indian) can cost upward of $16,000. Most good custom made lace fronts go for about $2,000-$3,000.Yet for all of their realness, lace fronts are not perfect. Outside of their considerable expense, they can be visible to the naked eye and can come undone if one moves her facial muscles too violently or sweats.

Lace fronts are not necessarily for the layperson The lace is very delicate, it's not something that a person can just put on and take off quickly. You have to take it off a certain way, you have to clean it a certain way. It's not that easy.

Too much trouble? I say so....


  1. I was thinking about a lacefront but does anyone know where I can get one for cheap???
