How Much Is a Lace Front Wig

I would be lying to you if I told you that front lace wigs aren’t popular. Whether you are brand new to the world of wigs or have been wearing them for years, lace front wigs are popular because they are so versatile, budget-friendly, and easy to work with.

If you’re ready to take that dive into wig-wearing, one of your biggest questions is going to be how much money will it cost? Well, I’m here to tell you that you can typically expect to pay anywhere between 50 and $500 for a lace front wig.

Let’s take a closer look at least front wig pricing and why there is such a wide discrepancy in price.

1. Type of Hair

When shopping for a lace front wig, you will run into two types of hair – synthetic and human. Human hair will always be the better option because it is silkier, smoother, and has a more realistic look. You also have the option of styling this type of hair however you please.

Within human hair are a few different other types, such as Remy human hair and virgin hair. Remy human hair is always going to be the most expensive because it has the highest quality. However, any type of human hair will be a good option.

Of course, you can expect human hair lace front wigs to be more expensive than their synthetic counterpart. This is all due to the quality, honey.

2. Length of Hair

When figuring out the price of a lace front wig, you should also consider the length of the wig. as you might imagine, the longer the hair, the more you’re going to have to spend. 

So, if you’re going for that super long 30-inch dream come true, expect to pay a lot more than a 12-inch wonder.

3. Overall Density

Another thing to consider is the density of the lace front wig. Density refers to the overall thickness of the wig. While some women will be completely comfortable with around 120% density, some women crave more.

If you’re looking for a full-bodied wig that will bounce and sway with every step, you will need at least 180% density. Just like the quality and the length of the hair, more density equates to more money. 

4. Color of the Hair

No, I have to be honest. Color does not play a huge role in the price nowadays. Usually, a blonde wig and a black wig will be around the same price. You might see a higher price tag when you opt for color options such as ombre, highlights, or balayage.

So, keep this in mind when you’re picking out your dream lace front wig. Also, remember that you can always change the hair color after you’ve purchased the wig. 

Don’t think that you have to buy a completely different wig just because you want a different hair color. It might be cheaper to dye or bleach.

5. Texture of the Hair

Last but not least, consider the texture of the hair. Curly and wavy locks are always going to be more expensive than straight stick strands. 

The reason for this is pretty simple. The wig creator has to spend more time creating elegant, full-bodied hairstyles, and time is money.

Again the texture of the hair is something that you can change after you buy the lace front wig. However, I completely understand why you want to purchase something curly or wavy right out of the gate. 

That’s what I do, mostly because my natural mane is completely straight, and I want something different without any styling necessary.

Final Thoughts

English print wig is an excellent investment, and you will love wearing it. However, you can expect to pay between 50 and $500 for your lace front wig. It all comes down to the quality, density, color, texture, and hair length.
