What is a Frontal Wig?

<p>Wearing wigs is no longer the taboo topic it once was. In fact, the majority of women who wear wigs today are open and honest about it.</p>

<p>A popular misconception about wearing wigs is that the wig wearer is suffering from an illness that is causing hair loss. While it is true for some, many women enjoy wigs for their versatility.</p>

<p>Wigs are accessories, just like jewelry and handbags. It's nice to have a variety of wigs to wear depending on your mood or the style you're going for.</p>

<p>If you aren't a wig wearer, you may not have realized that wigs come in a variety of body types. For example, there are U-part wigs, half wigs, full lace, and the most popular is a lace frontal or frontal wig.</p>

<p>Continue reading and we'll tell you everything you need to know about the most common variety. The frontal wig.</p>

<h2>What's Different About Frontal Wigs?</h2>

<p>One of the biggest benefits to wearing wigs is that they are great alternatives to using harsh chemical treatments, heat, and hair dye. If you want a straighter style or a different color, your natural hair no longer has to pay the price.</p>

<p>You may already know that too much manipulation from styling can cause breakage, excessive shedding, and stunted hair growth. Wearing wigs is one of many <a href="https://www.allure.com/story/protective-hairstyle-tips">protective style options</a> to keep your natural hair in its best shape.</p>

<h3>Styling and Parting Options</h3>

<p>Lace front wigs are typically constructed with lace or silk that can easily be bleached or tinted to match the appearance of your skin. You can also wear a wig cap or wig band that's similar to your skin color while wearing one.</p>

<p>Both options provide a natural looking scalp area that makes the wig undetectable while you are wearing it.</p>

<p>Frontal wigs can also be pulled back into a ponytail or headband, exposing a hairline that looks similar to your own if you choose not to wear the wig parted. The biggest benefit of wearing a frontal wig is that you don't have to blend or expose your own hair to make it look natural like you would with a U-part wig for example.</p>

<p>Keep in mind that the lace portion of a frontal wig usually only goes back about four inches or so. This means that if you try a style that's parted completely down the middle, like pigtails, the tracks where the hair was sewn onto the wig cap will show.</p>

<p>This type of styling will make it obvious that you are wearing a wig. If you want even more parting versatility, you should consider purchasing a full lace wig.</p>

<p>Full lace wigs allow for parting throughout the entire unit. This allows for more complex styling like multiple braids or ponytails.</p>

<h2>Types of Hair on a Frontal Wig</h2>

<p>There is a frontal wig for every budget. You can find them for as much as $1,500 and as little as $30. What makes such a huge difference in the price is the type of hair that's being used.</p>


<p>Synthetic wigs are made from <a href="https://www.livestrong.com/article/75819-synthetic-hair-made/">synthetic fibers</a> that mimic human hair. The nicer quality ones can withstand heat from curling and flat irons.</p>

<p>But you have to carefully read the label prior to purchasing one. Because they don't all have that capability.</p>

<p>If you use a heat tool on a synthetic wig that wasn't built for it, the fibers will clump together and melt. Synthetic wigs are usually the least expensive ones you can purchase. It would be difficult to find one that costs more than $100.</p>

<p>These usually come in one size and utilize clips and adjustable straps for a custom fit.</p>

<h3>Human Hair Blend</h3>

<p>Human hair blend wigs use a blend of human hair and synthetic fibers. They are marketed as being a step up from synthetic hair, but higher quality synthetic wigs are typically better than any human hair blend.</p>

<h3>Human Hair</h3>

<p>Human frontal hair wigs can be curled, straightened, and dyed just like your natural hair. However, the human hair that's used to create them can sometimes be of lower quality.</p>

<p>The reason is, when a wig is classified as human hair, it can still go through chemical treatments whether it is by the manufacturer or donor of the hair. So, if you buy a human hair wig with blonde ombre, for example, it's possible that the part that had been color treated will have some dryness or stiffness.</p>

<p>These and virgin wigs come in custom sizes. Also, most vendors will allow you to choose whether you want to secure the wig with combs, clips, glue, or tape. The type of cap your wig is on will vary by your preference.</p>

<h3>Virgin Human Hair</h3>

<p>Although there are different qualities of virgin human hair, virgin is usually the best type you can buy. When you see a frontal wig advertised as virgin it means the hair has never been chemically treated or processed.</p>

<p>This means the hair is in the natural state that it grew in. Also, virgin hair typically comes from one single donor.</p>

<p>Whereas some human hair can come from multiple donors. If the hair is processed from multiple donors, it can have a couple of different textures, qualities, and even varying levels of softness. This is regardless of the treatments the hair may have gone through to appear completely uniform.</p>


<p>You can see Remy on a hair label whether a frontal wig has virgin or regular human hair. Remy is a signifier of hair quality.</p>

<p>So, if you see it on the label, it will most likely be a nice wig. Remy means that the hair cuticles were kept intact during the making of the wig. When the cuticles are still on the strands, it gives a more natural appearance because of the unidirectional lineup of the hair.</p>

<p>The most important part of buying a frontal wig is knowing how to ask for what you want. For instance, if your needs would be better suited by a high-quality virgin lace frontal wig but you ended up with a synthetic half wig, you will be highly disappointed.</p>
