Which is better, French or Swiss lace?

It really is a matter of preference. Swiss lace is finer, and more fragile, than French lace, and blends better with the skin for a less visible appearance. French lace is slightly thicker and more durable. We generally recommend that first time buyers go with French lace because they are inexperienced at wig application and removal and are more likely to damage a wig cap made of swiss lace. With experience applying and removing wigs, you may feel more comfortable with Swiss lace. Both laces can be tinted different shades of brown to blend with a variety of complexions.

As a general rule of thumb, however, Swiss lace is less visible than French lace. We generally do not make entire caps of swiss lace on our standard wigs. If you want Swiss lace, we prefer to use it at the front hairline and crown, and use French lace for the rest of the wig. This helps increase durability.
