What Makes a Full Lace Wig So Versatile?
Essentially a full lace wig is constructed from a lace cap that covers the entire circumference of the head, with the 100% human hair knotted into this by hand.
Full lace wigs are versatile in that they can be parted absolutely anywhere as the lace looks like it’s your scalp and can even be color-matched to match your skin tone. Full lace wigs can be pulled up into high ponytails and other exciting hairstyles and tend to last much longer than lace front wigs, for example.
On standard Remy lace wigs, there is a piece of stretchy lace that is placed over the top of the crown to allow for free movement in styling. This also allows for hair growth beneath the wig and for variations in head size.
Let’s take a look at the key benefits of a full lace wig:
Full lace wigs have a base that is made entirely of lace, which differentiates it from its frontal lace counterpart. It will, therefore, need to be installed slightly differently to a lace frontal wig.
The lace surrounding the head allows for a much more natural and comfortable look and feel.
It is recommended that you wear a wig cap beneath your full lace wig, as it will be covering your whole head.
Full lace wigs are extremely versatile, meaning they are perfect for women who enjoy tying their hair up for events or for sports. Compared to a lace frontal wig, which can only be styled from the front.
Full lace wigs tend to be highly durable. With proper care and maintenance, your full lace wig can last you between 6 months and 1 year.
However, it is always recommended that you remove your full lace wig at least once a week to give your natural hair and scalp time to breathe and so you can care for and maintain your natural hair to prevent build-up of dirt and bacteria.

Lace front wigs only have a sheer lace base for the front section of the wig. The rest of the base is not made from lace, but rather another type of thicker material.
