The Different Types of Lace Frontal Wigs Available


Interested in purchasing a lace front wig? You may notice that a lace frontal comes in many different variations. This can be intimidating, especially after you already narrowed your lace wig choice from many options down to a lace front. In this guide, you will learn the differences between the different lace frontal types. Accordingly, this will help you decide which one is the best suited for you.

13x4 Lace Front Wig

A 13x4 lace front wig measures 13 inches across and 4 inches back. It is one of the most popular choices for lace front wigs as it fits an average sized head. Most women fit into this category, however, it is still important to measure your head properly before selecting this option.

13x6 Lace Front Wig

A 13x6 lace front wig measures 13 inches across and 6 inches back. If you find you struggle to fit into average sized wigs or you feel very uncomfortable in them, consider the 13x6 rather than the 13x4 lace frontal wigs. Of course, take a few extra seconds to measure this aspect of your head before purchasing your wig.

360 Lace Front Wig

As you may have guessed, a 360 lace frontal has lace all around the circumference of the wig. Since this is the case, you can achieve any style with your wig without worrying about detection. This is because the sheer lace, pre plucked hairline and baby hairs all around surround not only your front hairline, but also the nape of your neck and behind your ears. Apart from the 13x4, this is our other very popular option.

How Do I Measure My Head for a Lace Front Wig?

It is very important to measure your head properly for any type of wig. It will ensure that your wig fits properly, making sure you don’t experience a constant need for adjustment throughout the day. This will reduce the chance you damage your hair and scalp with regular wig installation and wear. It will also minimize your worries that other people can tell you are wearing a wig. Since you are selecting a lace wig, we know realism and beauty are important factors for you.


In order to measure your wig for a lace frontal, have a tailoring measuring tape handy. This allows you to take accurate measurements as it can conform to the shape of your head and actually curve around it. Next, you’re going to want to measure from one ear to the other ear across your hairline. If you are close to 13 on this measurement, you can either opt for the 13x4 or 13x6 wig. Next, measure from the front of your hairline where you would place the front of the wig to where your wig would end. If this is 4 inches, select 13x4. If it is longer, select 13x6.


If you desire a 360 lace front wig, you will need to measure around the circumference of your head. This wig type generally fits between 54cm and 58cm. At Ali Annabelle, we also include adjustable straps to make sure you can achieve  a comfortable fit.
