Why Female Bodybuilders Wear Lace Front Wigs
Women wear weaves and wigs for many reasons. Some just want a change of style, others wear it because they don’t have hair for whatever reason and some just like feeling like they can be a different person whenever they choose. When it comes to why female bodybuilders wear wigs the answer is a bit more complex.
Why Female Body Builders Wear Wigs
One of the major reasons why female body builders wear lace front wigs is because their hair (the hair that grows out of their scalps) is actually falling out of their head due to malnutrition. If you do a quick Google search you will notice that many bodybuilding women have very thin borderline unhealthy hair. This is because they cut out a lot of nutrition to be able to gain the perfect physique for competition.
The Bad Thing that Makes Your Hair Fall Out
What many women body builders won’t tell you is the one dark reason why they wear wigs. Some women body builders actually wear wigs due to abusing anabolic steroids. We all know that many body builders still practice the dark art and let’s be honest—as women it is extremely difficult and physically demanding to get the gains necessary to become the next bodybuilding woman of the year. Steroids and starvation diets are a quick way to lose your hair.
If you actually combine the use of steroids with the fact that many bodybuilding women starve themselves it all becomes clear. The price of the perfect body in their world is often times their health—and their hair. But hey, if you’re going to wear a wig you might as well look cute right?
Basically, lace fronts are a crowd favorite because they aren’t itchy and look just like real hair. You can take them off in the gym or even switch them up for whatever style you are rocking in your current competition.
Some of the benefits of lace front wigs:
The Natural Impression
When wearing a lace front wig, one of the biggest advantages is the illusion of hair growing from a natural hairline. Due to how natural the wig looks, it’s nearly impossible to tell that wearers are wearing a wig at all! At Simply wigs, we’re passionate about our customers feeling fabulous and comfortable in their wigs.
In the lace front wig, the natural impression it portrays is a great confidence booster for those experiencing hair loss. Lace front wigs are a great at disguising an unnatural boundary between your wig and skin, making it perfect for those also looking for new hairstyles to explore.
Comfort Is Key
Lace front wigs tend to be more lightweight and comfortable than many other wig constructions, particularly during hot weather or whilst wearing a wig for a prolonged period of time as it can sometimes get uncomfortable when your scalp becomes warm and begins to sweat. When wearing a lace front wig, your scalp is able to breath as the lace is so sheer.
Ease Of Application
Here at Simply wigs we offer a range of pre-cut wigs so that they are ready to wear. Alternatively, we also offer uncut and partly cut wigs, allowing you the option of being in charge of your own beautiful hairstyle.
Your Wig, Your Style
Another great thing about the lace front wig is the versatility you have with styling. There’s no lace at the nape (back of the neck), simply the wig edge which provides your wig with volume. A voluminous wig can be a priority for some women, giving the impression of healthy, blow-dried hair.
Many of our ladies have found the lace front wig more natural looking when the wig doesn’t have a fringe. This is because the wig and skin are merged, creating a natural-looking hairline. This can provide you with more confidence to explore styling options. Equally, you can sweep away the fringe of any of our front lace wigs without running the risk of revealing the wig edge.
Finding the perfect wig can be a difficult task, especially if this is your first wig and you’re not quite sure what you’re looking for. At simply wigs, you can browse our extensive range of ladies wigs!
Lace front wigs have been worn by Hollywood stars and celebrities such as Beyoncé, the Kardashians, Jennifer Lopez, and Tyra Banks, to allow them to have the perfect hairstyles for films, concerts and carpets. Over the last decade, lace front wigs have surged in popularity, and it’s no wonder why! What makes the design of these wigs stand out is their sheer lace front construction, which has revolutionized the natural wig look.
The front lace wig has a small sheer lace panel attached to the wigs hairline. Hair strands are sewn onto this, giving the effect of an undetectable hairline and the illusion that new hair is growing.
