Let’s find out all about it together right now!


Lace front wig, in French, means lace front wig or wig with lace front.

When most people think of “lace”, they think of a delicate fabric. Made in the manner of a canvas to create an intricate pattern that is typically used to make clothing and decorative fabrics. Such as curtains.

In the world of wigs, the term “lace” refers to a thin, transparent mesh to which the hair is individually attached.



The hair is individually hand-tied to the lace front piece to create a more natural look.

Lace front wigs can be styled away from the face because the hairline is almost invisible and the scalp is visible through the mesh.

You can also pull the hair of the wig back or tuck it behind the ears without the cap of the wig being visible. This gives you versatility and a very realistic look.

A lace wig cap can also contain other types of construction elements. Such as a monofilament top, a hand-tied cap, a no-cap style, or be a classic machine-made cap.

Because front lace wigs will give you such a natural hairline, many wig wearers want a cap that combines a front lace with a monofilament. Or a hand-tied cap to achieve the most realistic look with the most versatility.

Because these types of caps also allow for hair separation in multiple directions.

When you receive your lace wig, you may notice that there is excess lace protruding from the front of the wig.

This lace should be cut with a sharp pair of scissors to follow the shape of your natural hairline. Be careful not to over cut the lace. You want to cut as close to the hairline of the wig as possible without cutting the hair itself.

Lace wigs should be worn at the natural hairline.

To put on your wig:

  1. Hold it by the ear flaps and turn the wig inside out, with the inside of the cap facing up and the back of the wig furthest from you.
  2. Place the front of the cap on your forehead and slide the wig onto your head.
  3. Once you have your wig on, you can adjust its placement to give you the most flattering look.

At Missmizz Wig, most of our lace front wigs come with interior adjustment straps to give you the best possible fit.

It is also recommended to use certain products such as wig clips and gel cushion bands to create a secure and comfortable fit. Some women also prefer to wear a bamboo or cotton cap under their wig. All of these products can be worn safely and comfortably under a lace wig.

Just make sure that the placement of these products is slightly behind the hairline so that they are not visible in the mesh area before the hairstyle begins.



The front of a wig is very delicate. It is important not to hold the hairpiece by the lace. Pulling on the lace can cause it to tear.

So be careful when adjusting your mane and always use the ear flaps or side cap parts to grip the wig when putting it on.

Lace wigs can be washed with wig shampoo just like any other wig. You just need to make sure you don’t grab the wig by the lace or rub the lace severely when washing.

It is also important to moisturize well with conditioning products because human hair in a wig does not contain the natural oils of your scalp. Therefore, it can become very dry and brittle.

Don’t put conditioner on the front of the lace, as this can cause the hair to come loose.

You can use wig styling products, but if you are combing a wig with lace on the front, we highly recommend using a wide tooth comb.
