Swiss Lace VS HD Lace VS Transparent Lace

What we're going to talk about in this article today is the lace material of lace wigs, including its types, colors, quality, and everything you need to know about lace. It's very important because it's a new trend everybody needs to understand, no matter you are absorbing knowledge about lace wigs to start your hair business or just want to shop a piece of lace wig that fits you most.

Swiss lace VS French lace?

You must have heard the name of HD lace wig-one of the most popular trend in the wig market, some may think that HD lace can also be named Swiss lace, but this point is not correct actually, cause HD lace is just a type of Swiss Lace. The Swiss lace does not only have features like high breathability, softness and durability, but also comes in several colors to fit different skin tones. From here, you can easily understand the point that why Swiss lace is the most widely used lace type in the wig market. The Swiss lace is widely used in lace wigs, for example, lace frontals, closure wigs, 360 wigs, full lace wigs, and so on. All Swiss laces of Elfin hair are 100% made in Switzerland.

What is French lace?

If you are new in the hair industry, it's very difficult to tell the difference between Swiss lace and French lace from its appearance. French lace is not as soft and breathable as Swiss lace, but French lace is more durable and harder than Swiss lace. And French lace is commonly more long-lasting than Swiss lace.

Why French lace is not as popular as Swiss lace?

Cause French lace is not a good option for people who have a sensitive scalp.


Swiss Lace VS HD Lace VS Transparent Lace

What is HD lace?

HD lace (full name "High Definition Lace"), is easy to know from its name that HD lace is the most invisible lace type in the wig market. View the picture above, we can see the difference between HD lace, Swiss lace, and transparent lace clearly. As we mentioned before, the HD lace is also a type of Swiss lace, an upgrade Swiss lace. The HD lace wig is the most popular option cause it can melt into one's skin perfectly (no matter which skin tone they are) to create a more natural and realistic appearance than other lace wigs. But in order to reach this extraordinary invisible effect, the HD lace is commonly pretty thin, so while we handle an HD lace wig, we need to be as careful as we can.

What is transparent lace?

Transparent lace is a normal lace made of French or Swiss lace. It means that transparent lace belongs to a kind of French or Swiss lace that has a transparent color. We often recommend transparent lace to women with light skin tones, but recently we found that the transparent color lace can melt into any skin tone after we bleach the hair knots and glue down the hairline. 

What lace fits you?

  • Skin color: The first point you need to take into consideration is whether the lace color can match your skin color. A good lace of lace wig should melt into your skin perfectly and look like your real scalp. If you are searching for the most invisible lace wig, the HD lace wig must be the first pick on your list, and the transparent takes second place. If you have light skin, choose transparent lace, HD lace. If you have dark skin, choose brown Swiss lace or HD lace.
  • Durability: If you are searching for a lace wig that is relatively easier to take care of, or you are looking for your first lace wig, I will suggest you pick the French lace wig, cause French lace is more durable and harder than Swiss lace and HD lace.
  • Comfortability: If you are searching for a lace wig that can bring you the maximize comfy, the HD lace wig is a good choice for you. Because HD lace wig is normally more versatile, soft, and thinner than Swiss lace, French lace, and transparent lace. Besides, the HD lace wig is also an ideal option for summer.
  • Budget: Commonly, an HD lace wig is more expensive than a regular Swiss lace wig or transparent lace wig.
