Have you ever wanted to change your hair colour for a day or for a night out, but without the commitment of dying or cutting it? Maybe you've had a bad haircut, or a medical condition like alopecia might have left your hair looking patchy and thin. In any of these cases, wearing a wig could give you the confidence you need! It's so common to glue or clip in hair extensions, but wigs seem to be much less used, however they can be a great way to achieve the look you need. If its something you've been considering, here's what you need to know. 

Lace Front Wig
Lace front wigs and lace closures have lace around the front and sides to give the users more natural looks than traditional wigs. If applied correctly, the lace blends with the wearer's natural skin tone to give the illusion of hair growing from the scalp,realy looks natural. Wearing a lace front wig or a lace closure offers versatility in hair styling and hair colour. They're available in a range of styles, hair types, hair lengths and hair colours, lace front wigs feature a thin, transparent piece of lace mesh around the hair line and sides, hair strands are attached to a wig cap made from synthetic or human hair. One of the reasons wigs can get a bit of negative press or people are put off from trying them is that they can look false, but these lace front varieties really blend in well and look very natural. 

Lace Closures
A lace closure covers only a portion of the head, and proves ideal for people who want to cover thinning hair or temporarily change their hairstyle. To cover thinning hair, the lace on the unit should blend with the wearer's skin tone before its glued or taped into position. the lace closure matchs the wearer's hair style and color is the key to natural looks!

Lace front wigs and lace closures can be customised to fit an individual wearer's head or purchased as a stock piece from a website or a real beauty supply store on street. Ordering online allows for more style options, but not the ability to carefully examine the unit carefully. The price of a synthetic hair lace front wig ranges from twenty or so pounds, while human hair wigs cost a lot more, from around £80 and up. 

A trained hair stylist will be able to properly apply and maintain either unit, but following the manufacturer's application instructions will further improve the experience. Most clients achieve a one to four weeks hold with the right adhesive, washing and nurturing their own hair in between applications.

You can wear most lace front wigs or lace closures while enjoying your normal activities, even things like swimming. This is something well worth knowing if you need to wear a wig but have been put off trying it out at the pool or beach. Eclaceiwgs suggests testing different adhesives in advance to determine which will provide you with the best hold. One thing to be aware of is that glue application and friction between the wig and your natural hair may cause a thinning hairline, so make sure they're applied properly and perhaps give your hair a chance to rest and recover between uses.
