Lace cap wigs that don't require the use of adhesives are often referred as "glueless" which we fully understand isn't a word... Here at TCPG we know that wigs don't come with caps infused with glue and we also know that although tape is an adhesive, people don't contact us asking for "tapeless lace wigs" instead they ask for wigs that are "glueless". So, as that seems to be the popular term of the day, we'll use it here... with quotation marks... in italics... because we're pedants.
The term refers to whether a lace wig requires adhesive (glue or tape) in order to be worn as typically the undetectable hairline was achieved with lace wigs is mainly achieved by using adhesives.
We at TCPG masterminded, created and trademarked the term V-lace wig (OK no trademarks but we did come up with it) to refer to lace front wig that has a small V-shaped lace section at the front with a created middle parting (by the way, there are now T-lace wigs and L-lace wigs... pretty soon there'll be a whole alphabet of lace wigs hee hee).
The v-lace cap wig is made with a small v-shaped section of lace at the front which can be at the middle, to one side or at an angle to create a sweeping fringe or what's known in the US as side-bangs. The rest of the cap contains variations of the following:
This type of lace wig cap construction means that it can add extra room to the given circumference.
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 full lace wig cap, then you'll be able to adjust it to make it smaller.
If you have significant or total hair loss and therefore cannot use the combs or clips, these can be removed or you can customise your order so that your v-lace front wig comes with adjustable straps but without combs and clips.
This is a really easy pseudo lace front wig cap construction to use and is a great option for those who are new to wearing lace front wigs as well as being popular with those who have worn them for some time especially if you're allergic to adhesives or solvents (or just want to take a break from using them).
Another bonus to the Wear & Go lace front wig (yes, that's what we here at TCPG are have started saying instead of "glueless" lace front wigs) is that you can take it off daily to take care of your scalp or any growth hair.
The parting is fixed and the air cannot be parted in anywhere else even if you've gone for a stretch lace cap with hand tied hair, so certain hairstyles will be off limits (half up, half down style, canerows, pigtails and so on).
The hair cannot be worn in a high up-do as the edge of the cap would show – However the TCPG top tip is to simply go for the stylish tousled (or loose) high ponytail so that some of the hair is covering the top and back of your ears, covering the cap edge - voila!
As with all lace wigs, there are variations to this cap design, some of which include:
The development of different cap constructions for lace wigs has been a somewhat slow burning affair but the growing popularity of lace wigs has sparked the development of different cap styles.
It's easy to be enticed into all sorts of options for your lace front wig cap construction, without really knowing whether you need (or even want) to go the whole hog with accessories.
The TCPG Top Tip for finding your way through the thicket of full lace wig cap designs is to decide: what it is you need, what it is you want and then choose your full lace wig cap construction; after all, it's going to be the hair that you wear.
