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.

Maybe, I see women everyday wearing fake hair and nails going to school and work - maybe they just hate themselves and believe the hype.

Awful, that's all I can say. Ok, maybe I'm square, but I don't see the reason for a young healthy woman to wear wigs, artificial nails etc., except when it's necessary for a photoshoot, movie or video.

I know woman who wear this type of wig, other types of wigs and weaves and sometimes it not about a racial issue; sometimes people just like to change up their look. I can understand sometimes it's about having good hair, thinking straight hair is the best, or even hating your natural hair; but sometimes it's about changing your look as you change your clothes.

Beyonce once word micro braids that had a similar look (for like the first party of her career).

They say beyonce has a wig collection worth millions! Personally, I don't really like extensions and wigs in general. They look fake and/or overdone most of the time, IMHO. I also think that my opinion has a lot to do with racial issues as well, and the asinine concept that black women don't have "nice hair", hence the need to wear these wigs. I'd like to see Beyonce sporting a more natural hairstyle, for a change. I'm sure she'd look simply lovely.
