New Wigs User Must Know
#1   2020/07/19 10:50PM
Lace wigs are preferred by the majority of wig lovers for the soft lace part, realistic parting and natural hairline. However, for new beginners, they may still have some doubts about lace wigs. Hence, this blog is going to focus on some basic knowledge of lace front wigs. Hope all the new starters will have a clear picture of lace wigs and grasp fundamental skills to wear lace wigs with the easiest and most comfortable way.

We know that many people wear wigs simply to change their look but also for reasons including: illness, difficulty in growing hair, difficulty in managing growth hair, temporary and long term hair loss; so we know that authentic looking wigs are a must.

Authenticity is helped by having the right length, the right colour and of course, the right texture. But where oh where to begin?

If you’re new to the world of human hair lace wigs, you may not even know what terms like Yaki or silky straight mean; thankfully we have that covered!

Whatever kind of texture your growth hair is, we’ve got the perfect match of lace wig texture for you.

Whatever the hair type, (human hair or synthetic fibres) and whatever the type of hairpiece, whether a lace frontal, full lace wig or a lace front wig, have a look at the guide below and as always...

When it comes to textures for lace wigs, there are several basic textures and a few variations for each (such as different size curl patterns or different types of waves).

For now we'll focus on the basic lace wig textures used in human hair lace wigs and lace frontals:

Silky Straight suits straight growth hair
Light Yaki suits very curly or afro growth hair
Yaki Straight suits very curly or afro growth hair
Kinky Straight suits afro growth hair
Body Wave suits all growth hair types
Water Wave suits all growth hair types
Deep Wave suits all growth hair types
Curly suits all growth hair types
Kinky Curly suits all growth hair type
Afro suits all growth hair types

Anything outside of these textures can be difficult to sustain once you have your lace wig, especially large curls (larger than 2cm).

If you're determined to choose a unique texture, then check with the retailer that it's a tried and tested texture that will remain even after the lace wig has been washed.

As always the Peruke Caveat applies:

This is a guide only, you can take the information on textures and use it, or you can leave the information and wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable and confident.

Your retailer should be able to show you images of the lace wig (lace front wig, full lace wig or lace frontal) before you purchase it.

This is especially important if the only images available are those of singers and actresses as the wig you receive may not match up to the hair textures in those images.

As we said before ultimately it's about having hair that you can wear with confidence.

There's more information in the Lace (front and full) Wig Q&A section as well as the navigation menu, or if you'd like to keep up to date with the next guide about hair weave, hair extensions, wigs and hairpieces then please contact with Asteria Hair freely.
