On Sunday afternoon my daughter asked me to be a “hair model” for her, she held a Lace front class. I had NO idea what that was but she said, “mom just sit and read a magazine and be quiet, you will be fine”. I found out that a lace front is sorta like a weave but it’s lace and kinda like a wig thingy and some sort of closure lol with a bit more maintenance I guess. It’s the hottest hair trend right now. Thats all I know, I’m not a hairstylist lol.
I have very long natural hair but I don’t really wear it out because once it’s blow dried and straightened it’s pretty lifeless. I’ve said before that I like the fullness of a weave, sew-ins etc. Those hairstyles also keep my real hair protected from the heat and other things. So this kinda hairstyle seems to work for me, I think lol. We will see in a few weeks how it holds up. My daughter says that you have to really maintain a lace front and if you work out, sweat a lot or very strenuous with your hair, this is NOT the style for you. It’s a temporary look and it last for about 2 weeks. People try to hold out even longer but it will start to lift around the hairline/edges and you don’t want that and your lace front will start to slide back, lawd!
So in my opinion after wearing this particular style for a few days, is that I really like it! Its carefree, you just put a bonnet on at night, get up in the morning, shake it out, brush it and go. I know one thing, it also took 10 years off my face, yes hunty! It kinda feels tight like wearing a high ponytail, so your face feels aa bit pulled for a few days. It eventually loosens up though. My friends said I look really youthful, I will take that! No botox or face lift needed…ha! I’m so proud of my daughter she keeps me young, till next time! xoxo
