Lace Front Wig vs Full Lace Wig

The world is turning towards more realistic, lightweight, easy to wear, and versatile wigs to have the desired hairstyles. Considering all these factors, there is no better choice than lace Wigs. Lace wigs come in varieties ranging from “lace front wigs” to “full lace wigs.” Having a full spectrum of benefits and differences, sometimes it can be confusing for people to choose between these two.

First of all, you should have an idea about the basic differences between these.

 The lace front wigs, or you can call it frontal lace wigs, have sheer lace in the front, while the rest are made up of a strong wig cap. The lace front is attached to the scalp through glue or pins, while the back cap is held in place using combs and pins. It also has faux baby hair coming out of it, giving it the look of a natural hairline. 

Full lace human hair wigs, as the name implies, have a base entirely made of lace. It gives the wearers more versatility with hairstyles than a lace front wig. 

Here we list some of the significant differences between lace front wigs and full lace wigs to help you choose.


The weight of lace front wigs is comparable to the standard wigs available on the market because the thin lace covers only the front part, so it doesn’t make a big difference. Full lace wigs, on the other hand, have the base thoroughly made of lace and are much lighter. 


Lace front wigs offer a great range of versatility with hairstyles, but you have to be careful while styling the back as the wig illusion isn’t there. Full lace wigs offer greater versatility even at the back of the head without making you worried about revealing the wig. A simple example is that you can make a “low ponytail” with both but cannot make a “high ponytail” with a lace front wig. 

Natural look

Both of the wig options provide a natural look, but in the case of a lace front wig, it is limited to only the front of the hair. With a full lace wig, you can part your hair either way, just like your natural hair.


There is a tie here as both wigs can last between 6-12 months. Their durability depends on how often you wear them and maintain them.


Full lace wigs offer more breathability than lace front wigs as lace has good breathability. 

Volume of hair 

In full lace wigs, hair is woven into the wig cap by hand. On the other hand, in a lace front wig, the back wig cap has more hair than the full lace wig providing more hair volume and fullness. 


Lace front wigs are attached at the front edges of the head, while the rest of the wig is secured by using combs and pins. Full lace wigs need a wig cap to keep them secure and minimize the risk of scalp irritation.


Full lace wigs come in a higher price tag as compared to the lace front wigs as the whole wig base is made up of lace, and it requires more meticulousness to weave hair into it.
