Wigs have been around for millennia and were used in Ancient Rome and other ancient cultures.  This wigs guide will tell you about the wigs of today and what they’re used for.  First you need to know about the various kinds of wigs.   There are regular woven wigs that have been around for a long time.  Wefts of hair are woven onto a nylon head-shaped mould to create a natural look.  Such wigs can come in human hair wigs or as synthetic hair wigs.  They don’t look as authentic as lace front wigs or full lace wigs, which are the latest style in hair pieces.  

J-Lo, Beyonce, Jessica Alba and Tyra Banks have all worn Lace front wigsLace front wigs or full lace wigs have a stripe of lace around the edges and the hair is fused into the lace.  The lace is the colour of the skin and is fused onto the head with a snug fit.  The hair appears to come directly out of the wig and you can’t tell the person is wearing a wig.  Such a wig was initially designed for women who have had chemotherapy or who have alopecia (hair loss) due to other reasons, such as alopecia areata or alopecia totalis (total hair loss due to autoimmune reasons).  The downside of this type of wig is that they are very pricey—from $300 to $1500) depending on the styling and the number of hairs used to make the wig.  You can find fairly affordable wigs on the Internet.  Follow the Wigs Guide on the website for sizing and you have the perfect wig in just a few weeks.

The lace should disappear on contact with your skin if you picked the right skin tone.  There are adhesives you want to use to adhere the wig to your head. Your skin cannot be too oily or it won’t stick well.  Use alcohol to dry off your skin before applying the adhesive. There are applicators or you can use Q-tips to put the adhesive on your scalp.  Use a good quality glue adhesive.  It might be messy when you first start this process but you will soon be good at it.  You can use glue or a glue tape to put on your skin and have the wig attach to it.  They make kits for the tape adhesive that can help you apply the glue more easily.  Most glue will last just a few days before you need to reapply the glue. 
Hopefully, this wigs guide will have shown you how to apply a wig correctly, especially a front lace wig
