Differences Between Lace Front, Lace Part, Full Lace & Glueless Lace Hairpieces

Posted by Superhairpieces on 2023 Jul 5th

Women's wigs are increasingly dominating the beauty world, not only as a solution for hair loss but also as a fashion accessory, allowing people to achieve incredible long-hair hairdos or punky short-hair hairstyles as and when they please.

While plenty of synthetic wigs and 100% human hair hairpieces are available online and in stores, the most sought-after ones are lace hair units - lace front, full lace, lace part line, and glueless full lace wigs and hairpieces.

When choosing the right lace hairpiece for you, understanding their differences is crucial to making an informed decision according to your needs.

What are lace front wigs and hair toppers?

Lace front wigs and hair toppers are designed with hair strands hand-tied onto the sheer, soft, fine lace panel at the front of the wig cap construction, extending from ear to ear.

This thin, delicate lace material blends seamlessly with the wearer's natural hairline, creating an illusion of real hair and providing a natural-looking hairline.

The remaining portion of the lace front wig is generally constructed using a more durable material, such as a monofilament base, for longevity and a secure hold.

Lace front wigs are typically secured with adhesive or tape at the hairline, creating a seamless blend with your natural hair. They are a popular choice due to their versatility and affordability.

Key Features:

  • Undetectable natural hairline.
  • It can be cut and shaped.
  • Breathable - allows air circulation.
  • Affordable compared to other hairpiece options.
  • Offers front hair styling flexibility.
  • Easy to use and remove.

What is a lace front with a center-part hair topper?

A lace front with a center part hair topper is similar to lace front wigs as they also feature a sheer lace panel at the front.

The key difference is that these wigs are designed with a predefined center part, which adds convenience for those who prefer a specific center parting style for a natural hair look.

The center part looks symmetrical due to the lace construction, offering a flawless and realistic appearance.

Key Features:

  • It comes with a pre-defined part line created by a sewn-in or hand-tied portion of hair that resembles hair growing directly from the scalp.
  • Lace part line wigs provide versatility in styling options.
  • They are crafted with breathable and lightweight material.
  • Easy application and removal.

    Full Lace Wigs

    Full lace wigs are meticulously constructed entirely with an ultra-fine mesh lace cap that covers the entire head from front to back and side to side, mimicking the appearance of a scalp. The lace and hair strands are attached by hand, allowing a natural-looking hairline.

    Full lace wigs allow hair movement for versatile styling, as the hair can be parted in any direction and even styled into updos and high ponytails. The lace material provides a seamless blend with the wearer's scalp.

    Key Features:

    • Realistic hair look.
    • Requires adhesive or tape to secure the wig.
    • Realistic and undetectable hairline.
    • Comfortable and breathable.
    • Parting can be placed anywhere.

    Lace Front Glueless Wigs

    As their name suggests, lace front glueless wigs do not need glue or tape adhesives during the wig installation. These wigs combine the best features of lace front and full lace wigs while eliminating the need for adhesive.

    They typically feature combs, adjustable straps, silicone strips, and clips to secure the wig onto your head for a comfortable fit. Glueless lace front wigs are ideal for individuals who desire the flexibility and realism of a lace wig but prefer a hassle-free application method.

    Key Features:

    • Easy application and removal.
    • It protects natural hair & provides a snug fit.
    • Clings to bald scalps.
    • Offers styling versatility.
