…Why Lace-Front Wigs Are So Haute

It’s easy to see that one protective style trend is dominating this style season: lace-front wigs! “Lace fronts have become very popular because of how natural the hairline has looked over these years…It’s easy for women to get different styles using lace fronts, and they look so natural,” hairstylist Kamara Brown, from Dare 2 Be Noticed salon in Inglewood, CA. And the key to pulling off a great lace-front style, says Brown, is all in the lace itself. She tells us the thinner the lace, the easier it is to blend and your skin, especially when you’re using adhesive to secure the wig.” For more from our coif care convo with the stylist, check out the “8 Tips to Slay In Lace” story in the March ’19 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair on sale now.
