Hi there, this is UWigs. Nowadays, people are facing too many choices of hair extensions. With no idea for which one to choose, wigs or weaves? It is a matter of preference and conditions. Wigs and weaves are similar, but they have their feature and serve different purposes. Therefore, we need to learn the difference between them before purchasing.
A wig is a hair accessory made from human hair or synthetic fiber. It consists of a wig cap with hair attached. In short, a wig is like a hat made from hair, so it's much convenient to put it on and take it off compare with the hair weaves.
A weave is braided hair sewn down with the hair weft extensions sewn onto the braids. We usually will use the weave with a lace closure or a lace frontal to get a more natural look.
The difference between wigs and weaves
Wig and weaves are different in many ways. First of all, the wig was already made by the factory. Then, it's ready to wear. When we get the human hair wig, what we need to do is customizing it a little bit to make it look more natural. But the hair weaves are often sold in hair bundles with closure or frontal, so we need to spend time on sewing. This task requires technical skills, so it usually needs to be completed by a hairstylist.
Which one is best?
As we have said, choosing wigs or weaves is a matter of preference and conditions. But to be honest, we would much recommend to chose a wig. The reasons are as follows.
First of all, it's a whole three-step process to sew in the hair weaves. It takes a lot of days. Young girls constantly change their hairstyle. So they don't have to go through three hours of having to get the hair done every time.
Second, it's much easier to wear a wig. No matter is a headband wig or a lace closure wig. We can quickly put it on and go out. The wig a perfect choice for lazy girls and someone who needs to go out and work in the early morning. Besides, when we went back home, we can take it off before sleeping. So we don’t have to worry about messing up our hair when sleeping.
Third, the lace wig is much breathable, especially the lace front wig or full lace wig. so it will make you feel more comfortable and keep you cool in the hot summer.
Forth, we can change our hairstyle as much as we want with a lace wig no matter the lace closure wig or any other types of wigs. But if we chose the weave, we will be stuck with the style.
