Customized Lace Front Wigs Are Worth the Extra Effort

Many hairstylists will create generic lace front wigs and sell them to the highest bidder. Customized lace fronts are designed specifically for each client. The colors used, the type and texture of the hair additions, and even the haircut that creates the layers are all customized to fit the client. Chondra chose to use long flowing layers with wand curls and a custom blonde hair color to match this model’s facial features, and lifestyle.

Lace Front Wigs vs. Full Lace Wigs

For clients with healthy hair, lace front wigs can be a better alternative than their full lace counterparts. Full lace wigs require hair additions to be secured throughout the style. This could create an issue with long hair in the back of the head because of the difficulties securing the wig. Chondra says that for individuals with healthy hair, lace front wigs are the better alternative. They are easier to install, less time consuming, and a better value than full lace wigs.

Lace Front Wig Customized for the Model

This long blonde lace front wig was created specifically for this model. Chondra Wilson used her expertise as a master wig maker to create a look that would compliment this model’s natural features. Chondra started with a custom color process that is designed to create a bold, vibrant blonde color that will definitely grab the attention in any room. The color was created using different hues of ashe blonde.

To add more flavor to the ensemble, Chondra added a precision haircut to the lace front wig to give her model long, flowing layers. The layers were precision cut using a razor technique. Razor cutting gives the lace front wig a more natural look.

Once the haircut and curl were completed, Chondra created beautiful wand curls, or loose wave curls, throughout the hairstyle. Wand curls can create a bouncy movement as the model walks. The amazing aspect of wand curls is that, if they are created properly, they will fall right back into place once the model stops walking.

Keep Your Hair Healthy While Wearing a Lace Front Wig

To ensure that her model’s own hair would be well taken care of throughout this process, Chondra gave her a deep conditioning treatment before they began. Chondra also gave her model a nice trim to get rid of any split ends. Then, she cornrowed her model’s hair so that it could lay safely underneath the lace front wig.

To keep her hair healthy, Chondra recommends a good shampoo at least once or twice a week. Chondra retails professional brand at-home products for all of her clients that perfect for deep conditioner shampoos. She also recommends a daily moisturizer and some natural oils to avoid dry scalp conditions.

Chondra also recommends using a mannequin head at night to properly take care of your lace front wig hairstyle.
