Lace part wigs, also called T-part lace wigs, refer to the wigs with a T-shape lace part covering the area from ear to ear on the edges and in the middle of the parting space. You can find different lace part wigs with different widths and depth inches. The common lace part wigs include 4x0.75 inches, 13x5x0.75 inches,13x5x 0.5 inches, and others.
Very similar to lace part wigs, a lace frontal wig is also composed of a glueless wig cap and lace part. What differs between the two types of wigs is that lace front wigs have a larger area of lace, covering the entire top of a person's head. The lace front wigs can be divided into 13x4 lace front wigs and 13x6 lace front wigs according to the size of the lace part.
Both as lace wigs, the two types of wigs are very similar in construction. We will list the specific similarities between them below.
This is the most obvious similarity between the two wigs. They are both the combination of the glueless cap and lace part.
They are usually attached with the assistance of glues or tapes, which are applied to the front hairline area. Once the glue has dried, the front lace portion of the wig is affixed to the area where the glue has been applied on the hairline, creating a tight bond that keeps the lace wig in place on the head.
Both of them can create natural hair look for the wearers. The lace part mimics the natural skin of people. Only if you choose the high-quality lace wigs whose lace is invisible enough, they will give the most natural hair look. Sometimes, you need to apply some powder to make it match your skin tone.
To know which one is better for you, we have to know the differences first. You can take the following content as a reference to choose one of them.
The lace part of lace part wigs only covers the hairline and the middle part; while the lace front wigs have a bigger lace area covering the top of your head.
The remainder of a lace wig is made out of a less fragile material which is less susceptible to ripping or tearing than the lace. However, it is also less comfortable and breathable than lace front wigs which have bigger lace areas.
The lace front wig allows the wearer to choose a hairline. The lace is in the front half of the wig, to allow the wearer to part the hair any way they want. But with a lace part wig, you have to keep the middle-part hairstyle all the time.
A wig with more lace needs a more complicated production process. So the price of lace front wigs is much higher than lace part wigs.
After a basic understanding of the similarities and differences between lace part wigs and lace front wigs, here are some common questions about the two wigs.
