The first time I heard of lace wigs, I couldn’t imagine what they would look and if at all the concept would work. You see on one hand I had a mental image of lace in my head, like that of wedding dresses, and on the other, a picture of my hair, and the two just didn’t seem to go well together. However, when I actually saw a lace wig for the first time, it all made sense. It was a beautiful innovation and I was ready to welcome it with open arms. Ever since, I have been a huge fan of lace wigs; I love their feel, the fact that you can tie them up, or pull them back. It increases the freedom you have to style your wigs. So here are my four favorite;
List of Best Synthetic Lace Front Wigs
The Outre Synthetic Lace Front Wig Abella is a puffy wig. I like to compare it to Whitney Houston’s hair. It’s curly and big and creates a fuller image of your face. Leaving bare the wig’s hair line, it gives off a round face. The Outre wig is made of quality soft synthetic fiber, is of medium length and has a very many curls. Rated by many users as a 4.5 out of 5, the Outre is extremely soft, and though it might look a little intimidating in the pictures, (for those who are not used to big hair) many have said they were more than pleasantly surprised. Rather than being bulky, it was just full and light. Relatively bouncy even. Running your fingers gently through the curls to structure as you wish is highly easy and it keeps its shape for a very long time. Looking to be the next ‘waiting to exhale’ icon? Here’s the perfect wig for you!
Think Beyoncé. That’s what this next wig looks like. The Sensationnel Synthetic Hair Empress Lace Front Wig Giselle is long, curly and beautiful. It gives one a modern look and exudes both class and style. It’s a lady-like kind of wig that goes beautifully with any kind of attire. Tangle-free, this wig is very manageable and the curls fall softly into place whenever you wear it. The best thing, for me especially, about this weave is that when you comb it, strands of it don’t fall off everywhere. So looking to achieve my glamorous look, this is the wig I always go for. Fabulous for evening outings, red carpets, weddings and so on, this wig complements long evening dresses like none other. I guess that’s why Beyoncé always looks so gorgeous. The Giselle has been known to stay exactly as you bought it up to six months into wearing it. Delicately that is. Looking exactly as in the pictures, the Sensationnel synthetic hair wig never disappoints.
I wouldn’t be an honest reviewer if I didn’t give you my most honest opinion on every product I review. This next wig is a great wig, however, I don’t think it’s for everyone. I think this wig looks exceptionally gorgeous on those who have long oval faces, rather than short round ones. But correct me anytime if I’m wrong! The Freetress Equal Futura Whole Lace wig, the Sapphire make, looks like the kind of hair, Kelly Rowland usually wears. So create a mental image of Kelly in your head, that’s why I relate it to long oval faces. This wig is 100% individually tied, made that way to create the most natural look. And I can guarantee you, that’s exactly what it looks like. Soft in texture and quite on the light side, the wig is made of Futura fiber. Safe to any kind of styling equipment, the Freetress is known best for its versatility in up hairdos and pony tails. Rated at a commendable 4.3, this wig lends itself to a shiny, gorgeous and sexy look.
If we were to host the BET or Grammy Awards for hair, Sensationnel would be a top nominee. Getting a 4.5 rating for this particular product, Sensationnel once again, stands out among the rest. The Sensationnel Synthetic Hair Empress Lace Front Wig, the Bree model has an adjustable strap to ensure it fits anyone. It is available in both different colors, as well as different color mixes. Praised for its affordability, the Sensationnel lace wig is a beauty. One looks more elegant and lady-like in this weave. Its long straight nature with a sweeping bang makes you look a little more like Latoya Lucket. Recommended to have a wig stand so that you can place this wig when you go to sleep at night and wake up to its shapely splendor, the wig is otherwise not that high maintenance at all. Delicacy is required to a certain level but that is because the wig is synthetic and it is to be expected that after a while, a little shedding might start. I usually comb it from the bottom then work my way up, this is to ensure that the curls stay curly and structured.
So, I’m going to be the type of girl standing at meetings saying ‘Hi everyone, my name is Mary, and I’m addicted to lace wigs.’ And everyone will reply in unison “Hi Mary.” Lace wigs are so much fun. Instantly converting your look to anything you wish to look like for that particular day, lace wigs rarely ever look like wigs. And this is because of the whole exposed hairline concept. Looking exactly as if it were your own, lace wigs give you an effortless glamour, bringing genuine beauty to your face. Lace wigs can be a little on the expensive side, depending on which one you buy, however, just the same, you can find some pretty affordable awesome ones too. Just needing to refresh your wig with some spray here and there, lace wigs somehow seem to accustom themselves to your face, instead of the other way round. Dare to be different if you haven’t tried a lace wig before. It will be worth both the money and the experiment.
