Due to good breathability, light weight, and lace hair systems are all considered the best summer wear options, as they will give you the coolest feeling they can expect! Those who live a very active lifestyle are often the most loyal and persistent users because they sweat a lot. In terms of naturalness, both lace hair systems are undetectable, and when paired with 100% high-quality real human hair, can give the wearer a very realistic look of full hair. Nonetheless, they differ from each other in ways that will strongly influence those who choose between them.
Appearance: Without looking closely, it is almost impossible to tell the difference in their appearance, as both bases are made of thousands of ultra-fine threads neatly woven into a web of countless small holes. However, if you look closely at the base, you will see that the holes in the Swiss lace are slightly larger than the holes in the French lace, which actually makes the Swiss lace look less noticeable than the French lace. Larger holes undoubtedly mean better air permeability, which explains why the Swiss lace hair system feels more breathable to many wearers than the French lace hair system.
Touch: There are also differences in how the two hair systems feel on the scalp. Compared to Swiss lace soles, French lace soles are made of stronger and thicker thread, so when you touch them, you will feel that Swiss lace is softer and lighter. This difference is attributed to the finer fibers used in the production of Swiss lace materials, while the fibers of French lace materials are more elastic and strong. Although Swiss lace hair systems provide a relatively more comfortable feel, they do have their downsides. Compared to the French lace hair system, the Swiss lace hair system is more vulnerable to tearing and pulling injuries because the threads are very thin and soft. Hair system bases can easily break and go to waste if not used correctly. Usually, Swiss lace hair systems can last one to two months before becoming unusable. In contrast, French lace hair systems are more resistant to this damage, which makes them last longer, four to five months.
Hair density : Hair density is a measure of the volume of hair in a toupee. The higher the density, the more hair there is on the toupee. The hair density of toupees is usually divided into the following grades from low to high: extra light, light, medium light, medium, medium heavy, and heavy. The level of hair density that a toupee can withstand is another difference between the French lace hair system and the Swiss lace hair system. Given that French lace substrates are made of stronger fibers that are very resistant to pulling and breaking, the French lace hair system can have hair densities as high as medium thickness to meet the demands of head-hungry wearers with thick hair. However, when it comes to the Swiss lace hair system, things are not so flexible, as the maximum hair density compatible with the Swiss lace sole is medium light. Anything other than that will make the base of the hair system more vulnerable to breakage and damage from pulling. This prevents people who want hair density higher than medium light from trying Swiss lace hairpieces, which is one reason why French lace hair systems have a much larger consumer base than Swiss lace hair systems worldwide.
