Lace front wigs were first developed for cancer patients and women who were balding, and celebrities have been wearing them for years. It is only recently that they have crept into the mainstream.
Lace front and full wigs are different from regular wigs because the hairline looks like the hair is growing from your scalp. They have a small piece of lace netting attached to the front that can be glued or taped down to your forehead. You can’t just wear it plain like that because the netting will show. You have to apply makeup to cover the netting or lace. If the fit is correct, and the quality is good, the lace front will look like it’s you natural hair. They are extremely versatile and celebrities have been wearing them for years.
