Some women wear lace front wigs for the simple convenience of shielding their own hair from damage and changing up their style. Others use these wigs to conceal severe hair loss from illness, such as cancer or even stress. Lace front wigs became popular when women saw how versatile and natural-looking the appearance of the scalp looked.
