I’m Jess, your wig wearing, champagne drinking, Bravo TV obsessed, side part and skinny jean wearing (they have never gone out of style in my opinion), telogen effluvium and androgenetic alopecia hair loss BFF.
This type of wig has lace along the hairline only. It is constructed using a silk top and lace front. It can be seen as having the best of both worlds. The durability and realistic-looking part provided by a silk top and the natural-looking hairline provided by the lace front. Hairs are individually hand-tied into a delicate lace material that runs along the front (or hairline) of the wig giving the illusion that the hair is growing out of your head. The silk top provides a realistic-looking part line because the knots are not visible as they are tied underneath the silk material. There is a transition between the silk top and the lace front. There should not be a large bump or “step up” from the lace to the silk top. A good lace front wig will have a transition that is nearly undetectable. (Related terms: silk top wig, bleached knots, traced hairline)
