Lace Front Wigs Can Help Beat the Heat!

Lace Front WigsLace Front Wigs & 100% Hand Tied Wigs Can Help You Beat the Heat

For most of us, we want our natural hair wigs year round. But, it has been really hot lately! To beat the heat, Strut Hair Solutions has increased our stock of two modern styles, 100% Hand Tied Wigs (or Full Lace Wigs) and Lace Front Wigs. It’s important to understand the main differences between the two and when each one should be worn!

Hand tied wigs, or full lace wigs, sound exactly like what they are; a lace fabric base in which synthetic or human hair is tied to and worn over the scalp. These can be 100% hand tied with human hair wigs or can be a combination of processed and hand tied wigs. Full lace wigs cover the whole scalp and can be worn with different hair styles underneath. They are usually worn with a wig cap because they cover the whole head. They are better suited for more temperate climates because they do not offer much breathability and can get very hot in the summer.

Lace Front Wigs, sometimes called Front Lace Wigs, are a popular alternative to 100% hand tied wigs and full lace wings because usually command a lower price, offer more comfort and wearability. Many celebrities have used lace front wigs to get the perfect hairline or for a quick hairstyle change. Lace front wigs can be used as a quick fix or to try out different styles.

When installed professionally, these breathtaking wigs can give the appearance of a truly natural hairline. The lace front wig is strictly attached by the front edges and are usually cut to fit when attached to your head. The base of the wig is usually comprised of a thicker material to keep a natural looking shape with improved comfort.

Benefits of Lace Front Wigs

An additional benefit is breathability; since the front of the hairline is covered with lace and hair only, a lace front wig allows for comfortable, wearable hair in hot weather. Allowing exposed natural hair to remain uncovered and cool is another great reason to use a front lace wig instead of a full scalp wig. A lace front wig is definitely ideal in hot and humid climates and is a great, natural looking alternative to other options. A 100% hand-tied, full lace wig allows even more breathing when it gets hot.

With the temperatures in Fresno hitting 110 degrees this summer, a lace front wig can prevent overheating. Make sure your wig is high quality and installed properly. A cheap lace front wig that is not put on properly could do damage to the skin, hair follicles and may lead to hair loss, or even skin discoloration due to harsh adhesives.

We recommend you speak to one of our professionals for assistance with getting the right wig and getting it in place properly. Prices for front lace wigs vary quite a bit based on quality, texture, length and style. Front laced wigs offer another option for a stylish and comfortable wig in summer heat.

At STRUT, we have a vast selection of 100% hand tied front lace wigs to choose from in-store. So, you can try them on, have them fitted properly, and then tailored to your scalp, face and body through cut and color. Visit our Fresno and Solana Beach locations for a free consultation on human hair front lace wigs. We look forward to helping you get the look you deserve!

Human Hair Wigs verses Synthetic Wigs. Which are best?

Human Hair Wigs verses Synthetic Wigs, which one is the best choice for you?

Shopping online or in a store we always look at prices. The cheaper the better we always think, because we are saving money. Is cheaper really always better just to save a few extra dollars? You can be the judge of that as we describe what makes the best natural wigs below.

Ever wonder the big difference between the best human hair wig verses a synthetic wig? Yes price is a factor but there’s more to it then just the price tag.

SYNTHETIC AND HUMAN HAIR MACHINE MADE WIGS

Synthetic and Human hair machine made wigs are what most people identify wigs to be like and tend to be the most common.  As you can see in the picture above wefts of hair are sewn together by a machine to create the over all look of the wig. Machine made wigs tend to be less expensive because they can be mass produced quickly. Synthetic and Human hair machine made wigs tend to have more volume  and lift due to the thickness of the cap.  These can look very realistic when the hair falls in the way its sewn. Due to the way machine made’s are sewn the top or scalp portion of the wig tends to look ratted and unrealistic.  I would not recommend a machine made synthetic or human hair wig for a person with a sensitive scalp or is irritable to certain materials. Over all synthetic and human hair machine made wigs are great for someone who is on a budget and likes volume in their hair!

Pros:
More volume, more lift, more hair!
Least expensive
Can look realistic

Cons:
Thicker, heavier cap construction
Can be itchy or uncomfortable to sensitive scalps.
Cap construction can be more hot and bulky.
Unrealistic looking scalp

100% HAND TIED SYNTHETIC AND HUMAN HAIR WIGS

The idea of wigs being hot, heavy and uncomfortable is true but wigs are not all made the same. Depending on the wig cap can determine the comparability and flexibility of each wig. 100% hand tied synthetic and human hair wigs weigh less then 2 ounces in weight, leaving you feeling light and comfortable. In the picture above you can see that the cap is constructed very differently from a machine made wig. The 100% hand tied synthetic and human hair wigs have each fiber or hair individually hand sewn into the soft mesh cap.  This technique recreates the movement of the way our natural hair moves and lays. Unlike machine made’s 100% hand tied cap’s have a very natural looking scalp giving the illusion of real hair. This type of cap gives you the option to change your part and customize your wig even more to how you like to wear your hair. The caps are fitted and lay smoothly against your head which makes it feel like there is nothing is on your head. Wigs with realistic scalp appearances really tie your whole look together and make your hair look thick, yet real. Overall 100% hand tied synthetic and human hair wigs are more expensive but can you put a price tag on comfortability, natural looking, light weight and happiness?

Pros:
Light weight and comfortable
Natural looking, moves the way natural hair does
Soft, fitted, comfortable cap construction
Natural looking scalp making it easy to part.

Cons:  
Not a lot of volume
More expensive
Not a ton of hair
