Full stretch lace wigs are an easy way to wear lace front wigs if you're new to the world wigs made with lace. Lace front wigs come with different cap types and as you already know a lace front wig means lace at the front only with a different form of cap construction throughout the rest of the wig.

Full stretch lace wigs with lace at the front typically come with adjustable straps at the back or an elasticated perimeter at the back. Traditionally they don't have combs as they are to be worn with the use of adhesives.

The glueless option for lace front wigs, usually come with combs or clips at the sides and or crown to secure the wig to your head.

The stretch lace  has hand tied hair (not machine wefts) throughout the cap means can add extra room to the wig.

The standard medium cap size of 22.5 inches for a lace front wig would fit a head of up to 23.5 inches.

It also means that if you have lots of growth hair (in density, length or both) then the stretch cap on the lace front wig cap will accommodate it.

Equally, the adjustable straps can reduce the overall circumference by up to four centimetres (approximately 1.5 inches) so if your measurements are slightly smaller than the standard 22.5 inch lace front wig cap, then you'll be able to adjust it to make it smaller.

Adhesive is not used for the non-lace perimeter – this does not make full stretch lace wigs less secure as the back secured by the adjustable straps at the back that start from just behind the ears (where the lace stops) reach round to the nape of the neck.

Full stretch lace wigs, don't have lace at the top of the ears, which means that the hair cannot be worn in a high up-do as the edge of the cap would show – however our top tip is to simply go for the elegant tousled (or loose)  ponytail so that some of the hair is covering the top and back of your ears, which means the cap edge is out of sight – ta-dah!
