How many types of wigs are there?

When looking for a wig, the main questions you should consider is ‘what type of wig do I want?’ and ‘what’s going to work for me and the look I’m trying to achieve?’

There are 6 main types of wigs (there may be more out there but these are the most popular).

  1. Half head wig or the ‘instant weave’ These are made to be worn behind your hairline to add length and fullness. There’s usually a large comb on the inside at the very top for extra grip and the rest of the unit is wefted.

  2. U-Part Wigs are usually wefted from nape to crown minus an area at the top of the wig which is usually cut out to allow for your own hair to blend over the wig. It’s great for wig beginners who aren’t ready to cover all their hair and would still like to have some of their own hair out.

    1. Lace Closure wigs are made to cover and protect all your hair. They are usually wefted from nape to crown apart from a 4x4”/5x5”/6x6” lace area at the top. The lace adds versatility when it comes to parting.

    2. Lace front wigs are usually wefted at the back and have a lace front from ear to ear. They’re currently really popular as they offer a large amount of versatility when it comes to parting and style. If you prefer low maintenance hairstyles then this may not be for you as you have to be prepared to put in the work to achieve a natural look.

    3. 360 Lace wigs are wefted in the middle and have lace all around the perimeter. This allows you to put all your hair up whilst having a natural hairline (if done properly) at the front AND back.

    4. Full lace wigs contains no wefts, the hair is individually knotted on a full lace cap. It’s the most versatile unit you can get when it comes to parting and style.
