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.
Lace top wigs seem to be all the rage right now. This is understandable because they are lightweight, breathable, and lay very flat. A lace top wig uses a piece of delicate lace material for the scalp area and hairline of the wig. It is all one piece, so there is no transition at the hairline. The part can be changed anywhere within the lace area. Hairs are individually hand-tied/knotted to the lace. With this construction, you will notice what looks like “fly away” hairs. These are what are known as return hairs, or shorter hairs that result from the hand-tying technique. They are totally normal and can be tamed with styling. (Related terms: bleached knots, return hairs)
