Lace front wigs seem to be everywhere. You only need to type a search for sites to pop up and tell you that you must absolutely, positively definitely must have a lace wig, without any real information as to which kind of wig is right for you… well that’s where our guide comes in handy!
We know that many people wear wigs simply to change their look but also for reasons including: illness, difficulty in growing hair, difficulty in managing growth hair, temporary and long term hair loss; so we know that authentic looking wigs are a must.
Authenticity is helped by having the right length, the right colour and of course, the right texture. But where oh where to begin?
If you’re new to the world of wigs, you may not even know what terms like Yaki or silky straight mean; thankfully we have that covered!
Whatever kind of texture your growth hair is, we’ve got the perfect match of lace wig texture for you.
Whatever the hair type, (human hair or synthetic fibres) and whatever the type of hairpiece, whether a lace frontal, full lace wig or a lace front wig, have a look at the guide below and as always... Peruse The Perukes.
When it comes to textures for lace wigs, there are several basic textures and a few variations for each (such as different size curl patterns or different types of waves).
For now we'll focus on the basic lace wig textures used in human hair lace wigs and lace frontals:
Silky Straight suits straight growth hair
Light Yaki suits very curly or afro growth hair
Yaki Straight suits very curly or afro growth hair
Kinky Straight suits afro growth hair
Body Wave suits all growth hair types
Water Wave suits all growth hair types
Deep Wave suits all growth hair types
Curly suits all growth hair types
Kinky Curly suits all growth hair type
Afro suits all growth hair types
Anything outside of these textures can be difficult to sustain once you have your lace wig, especially large curls (larger than 2cm).
If you're determined to choose a unique texture, then check with the retailer that it's a tried and tested texture that will remain even after the lace wig has been washed.
As always the Peruke Caveat applies:
This is a guide only, you can take the information on textures and use it, or you can leave the information and wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable and confident.
Your retailer should be able to show you images of the lace wig (lace front wig, full lace wig or lace frontal) before you purchase it.
This is especially important if the only images available are those of singers and actresses as the wig you receive may not match up to the hair textures in those images.
As we said before ultimately it's about having hair that you can wear with confidence.
