What Is A Frontal Wig?

A frontal wig, also known as a lace frontal, primarily covers the front hairline or crown area of your head. It's a type of half or semi-lace wig that extends from ear to ear or temple to temple. This design ensures a fuller hairline, seamlessly blending with the rest of your hair. Frontal wigs come with an HD soft base, creating the illusion of natural hair growing from your scalp.

Learn The Difference!

Both frontal wigs and closure wigs fall into the category of semi or half wigs. The key difference lies in their coverage area. Closure wigs typically come in 4x4 sizes, whereas lace frontal wigs are available in various sizes such as 5x5, 5x7, 5x13, offering more coverage.

How Do You Install A Frontal Wig?

Frontal lace wigs can be installed using various methods. Some of the most common techniques include:

  • Crocheting the frontal lace wig onto your braids.
