What are Short Lace Front Wigs?
Have you ever hoped to, with a wig, achieve a hairline with a more natural appearance than most?
Short lace front wigs are what you need.
These wigs are modelled after the human scalp and are suited for folks who wish to seamlessly style and keep their hairs off their face. They are short, after all.
While all of them are short, they exist in varying lengths:
- Mini Petite: 12.5"
- Petite: 13"
- Large: 14"
These lengths are ear to ear dimensions, and even the longest doesn't come close to the typical long lace front wig.
Unlike full lace wigs that are entirely knotted to a lace wig cap, these ones have laces that only extend from one side of your head to the other. It's why they're called front wigs or frontal.
Short lace front wigs are very fashionable and easily styled because they have an almost invisible hairline.
For people who suffer from hair loss and similar conditions, short lace wigs are the perfect cosmetic solution. Besides, they give you that ever-smashing boss lady look.
Are you supposed to cut the lace off a lace front wig?
Yes, you're meant to cut the extra/unneeded lace off the front wigs. Not cutting off the lace from a wig is like going around with the price tag and fashion labels on your clothing… It's probably even worse.
The only way to ensure that your wig fits perfectly and doesn't look awkward when worn is by cutting/trimming the lace-up to your human hair edges.
After cutting the extra lace, stylists go as far as using makeup concealers to ensure that there's a perfect blend between the frontal/closure and your skin tone. This helps it look as natural as possible.
Can you shower with a lace front wig?
Of course, you can.
Not everyone has the time to wear their wigs every morning as though it were for the first time.
There are, however, some precautions to follow. Here are a few of them.
- Don't attempt to shower with your wig if the adhesives have begun to come off.
- Your wig isn't as durable as your natural hair… don't scrub as aggressively with your fingers.
- As much as you can, avoid exposing your wig to direct pressure from the shower. This could pull it off. Rather gently tip the back of your head in, and allow the water flow to the front. This is gentler on the weaker adhesives in the front.
- You don't need to wash repeatedly. One simple wash with a wig shampoo will suffice in removing all specks of dirt and oils.
