Living in a pandemic is not easy for most people. Covid-19 has literally turned the world upside down and countries are seeing shortages--from food to supplies to hair to You Name it! If you're active on social media, you may have seen some individuals complaining or making statements about the lack of lace. Is this talk full of fluff or is it the real deal ?! Is a lace shortage really upon us. A global lace shortage has been in effect due to the pandemic and this is because lace factories have slowed production. Lace is usually produced in countries such as Switzerland, France and Italy. Factories in these countries have decided to cease production until the first quarter of 2021. The shortage may have been more readily apparent last year and you may have seen slight increases in pricing of certain lace wigs due to the lack of global supply. You may have also seen more wigs being sold with headbands (which btw, we are not very fond of)!
Here at Essence Wigs, we specialize in all types of wigs. Not solely lace front wigs. The above unit is our Hot Spicy Trio unit from the newest collection: Caribbean Tingz. There is no lace on this wig. Lace front wigs can be a great option to showcase silky long or straight tresses if that's your thing. We create and carry various wig options for those seeking to wear natural looking hair and voluminous hair. When it comes to texture, lace is not important because naturally textured styles are not known for showcasing scalp or even artificial edges. Natural wigs units like ours are perfect when you desire to showcase your own edges and they look most natural this way. It's really due to the volume, height and texture of the hair that make lace unnecessary. When natural texture is the desired choice, lace is not really a desired choice as the purpose is for the hair to look like the hair growing out of your head whether it be type 3 or type 4 hair.
As wig professionals, we've come to learn that some individuals are anti-lace and want fuss free stylish options that are easy to wear. Some don't want to bother with glue which can be damaging to the hair or scalp underneath. Some of our wig caps offer a line of parting but are essentially lace free. They make wearing wigs easy peasy as they can just be placed on without the additional work that some lace units require.
If lace front wigs are your thing, Essence Wigs certainly has options for you. Check out our Perfect Fro unit:

As we continue on in 2021, you will see shortages of various types disappear as the pandemic is controlled and eventually ends. Always remember that lace is not really necessary for a natural textured wig to look natural.
