different types of lace wigs


Aug 12, 2022



Lace wigs are in great demand and for very good reasons. Their versatility makes it easy for women with different styles to find one that fits their own. Moreover, their quality and durability make them a favorite too as they can be worn countless times.

But, as with most things fashion today, what was trendy a few years back might be outdated today.

To help you sort through all that the market has to offer, we've rounded up the different types of lace wigs available and their main characteristics. 

Types of Lace Wigs

The world of lace wigs is complex and fascinating as there are various ways you can categorize them:

Based on the Size of the Lace Area

Here are the types of lace wigs based on their lace area:

  • Lace Closure Wig

Lace Closure wigs come in different sizes, but the most common one is 4x4 inches. You can use it to close off your wig or give the finishing touches to a particular hairstyle. 

One of the great things about lace closure wigs is their versatility. They can come in different styles, such as free part, middle part, and three-part. Keep in mind, though, that with a middle part, you only have one way of styling your hair. A three-part makes it possible for you to style your hair in three different ways, while the free part gives you complete freedom. 

  • Lace Front Wigs

If you want to achieve a more natural look and give the illusion of fuller hair, then the lace front wig is the right choice. Because the lace front wig sits on the front edges of your hair where the hairline starts, it becomes practically undetectable. 

In addition to the short installation time, lace front wigs allow you to style your hair however you want. That's because they give you a natural hairline, so it's almost like styling your own hair. If with other types of lace wigs some hairstyles are out of line, such as the ponytail, with a lace front wig you can get as creative as you want. 

  • Lace Part Wigs

A lace part wig has a significantly smaller lace area than compared to the lace front wig, for example. This lace area will only cover the hairline, but these partings come in different shapes, such as straight, C-shape, or L-shape. Because the part is made with lace, these types of wigs have a very natural look that makes it almost impossible to tell that you are wearing a wig. 

  • 360 Lace Wigs

As the name suggests, this type of wig has a lace area that covers the entire perimeter of the head. Because of its design, the 360 lace wig will make it look as if the hair is growing directly from your scalp. 

You can style this type of wig differently and even go for a high ponytail without being afraid that the lace will be exposed. 

  • Full Lace Wig

A full lace wig is made entirely with hand-knotted hair, which will give it a natural look. Because they are usually cut by hand and made of high-quality materials, a full lace wig is more expensive than other types of lace wigs. But its quality, comfort, and the freedom of styles it offers usually compensate for the hefty price. 

Based on the Color of the Lace

  • Transparent Lace Wigs

As the name suggests, the lace of this type of wig is very thin so much so that it almost seems transparent. The advantage of a transparent lace wig is that once you attach it to your hairline, it will blend with your skin and will look natural. 

  • HD Lace Wig

HD lace wigs are very soft and delicate and will blend perfectly with your skin. However, because of their very delicate material, a lot of care is needed when maneuvering them. If this is your first time using a lace wig, it's better to opt for the transparent one until you get the hang of it. HD lace wigs are premium products and they are priced accordingly. 

Based on the Hair Length

  • Long Lace Wigs

A long lace wig is perfect if you prefer a more bohemian and feminine look or if you like having plenty of options when it comes to styling your hair. 

  • Bob Lace Wigs 

If you would rather go for a more practical hairstyle or if you have fine or fragile hair, then a short bob lace wig might be the right choice for you.
