Lace Front Wigs get their name from a fine piece of lace mesh at the wig's hairline. The mesh allows the wearer to pull some of her own hair through the wig, mingling real hair and artificial and creating a seamless, natural-looking hairline. Lace Fronts can also be glued on, making them secure enough to withstand dancing, running, and a full range of motion.
Celebrities such as Tyra Banks, Rhianna, and Beyonce achieve some of the glamourous hairstyles they sport by wearing lace wigs. Lace front wigs have a natural hairline and are undetectable when put on correctly. Lace wigs were once only a luxury of celebrities and the well to do. However, they have become more mainstream and are being utilized by women from all walks of life.
