If a human hair lace wig isn’t ideal then maybe synthetic lace front wigs are an ideal alternative and here are your quick fire questions.
It’s the hair. Instead of human hair, the hair is synthetic hair… but no ordinary synthetic hair.
If you buy from us (or another reputable retailer), the synthetic hair should be made from fibres that are heat resistant to around 180 degree so you can use straighteners and curling irons that are temperature controlled.
Now this is the part to focus on; whilst you can use heat, the key is to not use excessive heat. If you keep in mind that this is a synthetic lace wig and not lace wig made with human hair then you should be able heat style regularly without damaging the hair and prolonging the life of the wig – which is something we all want, right?
The texture is silky rather than shiny so it won’t look like an ordinary synthetic wig that we all spot because of its unnatural reflective qualities.
Our synthetic lace wig textures guide tell you everything that you need to know about textures and although Remy hair is mentioned, the exact same rules apply to synthetic hair… In brief;
You can expect the exact same quality of lace in synthetic lace wigs as you can from human hair lace front wigs.
They come in both French and Swiss lace types and you’ll know from our lace guide that French lace is more durable than Swiss lace (which is a thinner lace) so opt for this if you’re new to lace wigs.
It’s important to emphasise that with synthetic lace wigs from the ready to wear section (stock) they typically only have lace in the front; which is why they're called lace front wigs. Most retailers don't hold synthetic full lace wigs as a stock item, so if this is what you're after then you're more than likely going to have to order this as a custom lace wig. There are quite a few lace wig cap constructions and they're available for synthetic lace wigs as well as human hair lace wigs.
You’ll also know that the lace comes in different shades so will suit the darkest and lightest complexions and every skin tone in between. You can be sure to have an undetectable hair line with your synthetic lace wig.
Again just as with human hair lace front wigs you can expect a synthetic lace front wig to have baby hairs around the perimeter to add to the authenticity of the hair line.
The baby hair will be an inch to two inches long and require trimming to the length that you choose.
There you have it, virtually everything you need to know about the super synthetic lace front wig!
Once you've decided on texture, the other decision to make is which colour to choose...
As luck would have it, we've put together a hair colour and skin tone guide which matches skin tones and hair colours; click the hair colour chart to enlarge (the chart can be enlarged twice just click the expansion box top right of the enlarged image window).
