    The use of “Lace Front” pieces for the Ulitimate Hair Line appearance has gone from Broadway to Hollywood and is now found all over the streets, in offices, clubs and the super market. Available in a variety of hair types, lengths and colors a weak or damaged front hair line can now be replaced with a virtually undetectable hair line of natural human hair tied (ventilated) into a fine “theatrical” lace that once attached using a special adhesive will disappear on the skin and the hair will easily blend into the existing hair.

    This technique for creating a “New” hair line has for the most part been available only to those in the film industry and a few who may have had a connection to a wig maker. It’s an effective and easy way to give one a new hair line without surgery or wearing a wig. There has been a huge resurgence of the use of lace fronts due to the popularity of their use by such celebrities as Beyonce and Tyra Banks. The lace fronts usually are about 10” to 11” wide and anywhere from 1” to 3” deep and are placed from temple to temple across the front hair line. T

    he lace is attached to the skin with the use of a liquid adhesive that is safe for use on the skin it goes on clear and dries clear. Once the adhesive is dry the lace disappears on the skin and can then be touched up with a small amount of makeup to blend into the skin. The hair that is tied into the lace can then be styled into the existing hair. Another use for the lace front that was taken from the theatre and film industry is to apply the front to an existing wig. The lace fronts can be purchased over the internet and then sewn onto the front of wig to give a full wig a very natural looking hair line and allowing the wearer to style their hair off the face, something that would not be possible with a typical wig.

    With this application the hair is contained in a wig cap, the wig is placed over the wig cap and the lace adhesive is applied to the skin at the hair line. It’s best to let the adhesive dry slightly before placing the lace onto the adhesive. A good tip for setting the lace into the adhesive is to press the lace into the adhesive with a piece of nylon stocking this will assure the lace is properly set, smooth and with no bits of lint. The new mainstream use of the lace front has brought a whole new dimension to the beauty industry and a wonderful new option for those with problematic hair lines allowing anyone to look and feel like a star.
