These wigs have hand tied mesh fronts where the bangs are located. A lace front is like a monofilament top, only more fine. The lace is nearly transparent, lays flat on the head and simulates a natural hairline. The hair is tied one hair at a time and is tied less dense that at the crown. Often times short curly "baby hairs" are tied onto the very edge to give the illusion of the fine hairs that grow at the hairline. This is the type of hairline that is seen in hair systems for men, and wigs for movie and media use.
The major benefit of human hair is that the hair can be colored and permed. Also, you can use a curling iron or electric rollers to curl the hair. Heat is not a problem with human hair as it is with synthetic. The human hair also lasts longer than synthetic hair, although the caps of both types of hair last the same (about a year). Human hair wigs need the same kind and amount of care as growth hair, and are generally a little more expensive.
In general, synthetic wigs may be the best choice if you have a limited budget, have little time or capacity to provide homecare and maintenance or if your hair loss is a temporary condition. The major benefits are easy care, reasonable price, permanent color, easy styling and usually quick availability. Most synthetic wigs today are made with Kanekalon fiber that holds its shape and color. The synthetic fiber used in wigs today has improved significantly over the past 10 years.
Hair extensions are available in many different colors, textures, styles, and lengths. Extensions can be attached to hair by weaving, sewing, braiding, gluing, and tubing. Some of these methods can last from two to six months with proper application and maintenance. These methods should be performed in a salon. To determine which method best suits your lifestyle and your hair, do your research and speak to a qualified professional.
