Definition of Lacefront Wig

Definition: Lacefront Wig

It's rare that I dig into more technical hair terminology, but as anyone who's ever talked to a celebrity stylist knows, lacefronts are very popular, with fans ranging from Beyonce to Tyra Banks to — allegedly — John Travolta and Jeremy Piven. Lacefronts get their name from a fine piece of lace mesh at the wig's hairline. The mesh allows the wearer to pull some of her own hair through the wig, mingling real hair and artificial and creating a seamless, natural-looking hairline. Lacefronts can also be glued on, making them secure enough to withstand dancing, running, and a full range of motion.
