Lace front wigs are more common and the remainder of the wig is made out of a less fragile material which is less susceptible to ripping or tearing than the lace. The lace front wig allows the wearer to choose a hairline. The lace is only in the front half of the wig, to allow the wearer to part the hair any way they want. Modern day lace wigs can be worn while doing activities like swimming and exercising, which make it a popular choice among alternatives. It is also an excellent alternative for anyone looking to avoid adding hair to the scalp via surgical methods.
