Wigs have been an essential part of the fashion industry since ever. Some people experiment on their own hair but some do not want to damage their bio-hair and go with wigs of different colors and styles.
Nowadays, wig users prefer hair wigs over styling tools on their own hair as it causes permanent destruction of natural hair in the long run. Wigs are available in many different varieties. Wigs can either be Synthetic (made from synthetic polymer) or Human hair wigs (made from real human hair). Human hair and synthetic hair both have great versatility in texture, style, and color. Other than that, the wigs could either be the traditional old ones, monofilament, full-lace wigs or lace-front wigs. Monofilament and full-lace hair wigs allow you to part your hair in any way or direction as the mesh and lace make it look like the air are coming out of the hair follicles. Lace- front wigs are also ideal for a no-wig look as the front lace part merges well with the hairline and gives the deception of a natural hairline.
Lace front hair wigs are in demand and quite popular among wigs users currently as they provide a very natural and light look. They give the false appearance of a natural hairline and therefore it is difficult to tell if you’re wearing a wig. They are made up of human hair, Hand-tied in the front and machine-made or exclusively hand made on the back as well. They usually have a 3.5-inch lace piece at the front. This piece can be cut and customized according to your own preference. Lace front wigs have a lace front and a thicker wig cap. The hair is stitched to the frontal lace by threads and to the thicker wig cap giving it a fuller yet natural feel. They are stretchy and easily cover the whole of the scalp that gives a neat sight. These hair wigs are also cheaper in price than full-lace front wigs though they also give the independence of styling the hair as you want.

Now pour some glue on a blue blender or sponge and dab it over the hairline where the lace front has to be placed. The glue can also be applied with a makeup brush. Now let it dry until the glue goes transparent. Once the white color of the glue vanishes, place the lace front and adjust accordingly.
