The most sought-after wig service of the recent times is a frontal wig installation. Frontal wigs, also sometimes known as lace frontals, are hairpieces which include a lace material that runs from one ear to the other. The lace allows for the wig to easily blend with your skin and your hairline, giving off an especially natural look. Because the lace runs along the entirety of the front of the scalp, it is the most versatile option when it comes to wigs and allows its wearer to part the hair any way as well as pull it back into a ponytail.
