Some of the different types of lace wigs are full lace wigs, custom lace front wigs, and lace front wigs. There are also types of wigs made from lace that have virgin hair attached, which is ideal for people who want completely natural, healthy, untreated looking hair. Lace wigs are typically made of either real or synthetic human hair, and vary in price depending on where the wig is purchased and the quality of the hair attached. The type of lace wig also tends to have an impact on price.

Most lace wigs are made of either real or synthetic human hair that is intricately sewn into a lace base. The base is typically dyed to match the hair color of the wig so that, at first glance, it is not usually apparent that the hair is not the natural hair of the wearer. These wigs are normally quite popular with people who are suffering from extensive hair loss as a result of certain medical conditions. They tend to cover large areas of the scalp, unlike extensions, which usually only aid in enhancing the appearance of existing hair. Many people have to measure their heads in order to determine the appropriate size of lace wig to purchase, but most types come with stretchy lace that allows for a slight margin of error in measurement.

Full lace wigs are generally made to cover the entire head. Just as with other types of lace wigs, they come with real or fake hair that is sewn into lace. Some of these wigs are made to look so real that they even have a visible part at the top. These wigs are usually the most popular for people who have lost most of their hair as a result of chemotherapy or some other type of radiation.

The main difference between full lace and lace front wigs is that the front wigs only cover the part of the head that extends from the front hairline to the ears. These wigs can create a fuller, more styled appearance around the front of a person's face and may not be ideal for someone who is experiencing hair loss all over the top of her head. Lace front wigs are often used to enhance the appearance of existing hair much in the same way as hair extensions, but are also frequently used for people who are experiencing problems with thinning hair. A person can also have a custom lace front wig designed to look exactly like her natural hair.
