When buying a lace wig, frontal or closure most people want something that looks as natural as possible. A key part of attaining this look is choosing the right kind of lace. Many opt for a regular or transparent lace, but the recent popularity of a new option on the market – HD Lace – has made the decision a bit more difficult.
What is the difference between HD and transparent lace?
The HD in HD Lace stands for "high definition". This type of lace is made from very thin Swiss lace. The material is soft and extremely delicate and becomes invisible when applied to the scalp, making the wig look more natural and the lace along the hairline less detectable.
Transparent lace, on the other hand, is regular French or Swiss lace in a transparent color. This regular lace is available in different shades of transparency depending on your skin tone.
Both transparent lace and HD lace are quality choices and offer benefits such as a natural-looking hairline, breathable material, and customization.
So which should I use?
It depends! Everyone’s hair goals are different and will affect your decision.
For lighter skin tones, transparent lace is a quality choice. Transparent lace is also cheaper, so if you’re fair-skinned or looking to save some money – this is your best bet!
HD lace, on the other hand, is higher in price due to the delicate quality of the material, but this also means that it’s meant for shorter-term use and not the best choice for beginners. Those with darker skin tones or more experience should invest in HD Lace for an undetectable install.
