Depending on the style and material used to make the hair strands, lace front wigs
vary greatly in price from forty dollars all the way to nearly four hundred dollars. Let’s look at the least expensive one for calculating the approximate annual cost of wearing lace front wigs on a daily basis. For a simple style made of synthetic fiber hairs, you might pay forty dollars, plus the cost of shipping and handling if you order it online.
The estimated length of normal daily usage for the synthetic lace front wigs is six to twelve months before they start to show too much wear and tear and need to be replaced. If you look at the shorter end of that period, you would be paying about one hundred dollars for the two wigs needed for a full year.
Of course, purchasing several styles of lace front wigs would increase the amount of money you would be spending, but we will focus on owning just one style. When considering the annual cost of wearing lace front wigs, you also need to think about the additional costs that you might need to pay for any adherents you will use to keep your lace front wigs in place throughout the day. The least expensive way to hold your lace front wigs in place is simply using hair pins around the underside of the edge of the wig to secure it. The cost of a package of hair pins is very little and will not make much difference when calculating the annual cost.
If you choose to use one of the special liquid adhesives for holding your lace front wigs in place, it will need to be removed by a compatible adhesive remover. A small container of water proof wig adhesive might last an entire year, depending on how much you use. It costs approximately twenty dollars. The adhesive remover for use with lace front wigs will cost an additional thirty dollars for enough to last a whole year. That brings your approximate annual cost to one hundred and fifty dollars if you choose to use liquid adhesives.
Although most people would not guess it, adhesive tapes are the most expensive way to secure lace front wigs. They usually cost six dollars for a three week supply. That adds up to close to one hundred dollars a year plus the one hundred dollars for the cost of the lace front wigs gives you an approximate annual cost of around two hundred dollars if you use the adhesive tape.
Overall, the annual cost of wearing lace front wigs
costs much less than going to a hair salon every month to have a permanent style in your own hair at an annual cost of over seven hundred dollars.
