Tips: You can refer to the steps for U part wigs when applying a V part wig and pay attention to the different shape opening of it, which makes V part wigs easier to install.

Major Differences between U part wigs and V part Wigs

The most obvious difference lies in the shape of the opening -- one has a U-shaped opening, while the other has a V-shaped opening. You don’t have to pull too much of your natural hair for a V part wig, whose opening is narrower compared with U-shaped ones. Therefore, V part wigs are a good option for wearers with small sections of hair volume on the front part of her head because they can cover the weak and thin hair (if any) seamlessly and make the illusion of fuller and thicker hair for you. While with a U part wig, you need to pull out a larger sections of your natural hair to cover the U-shaped opening so as to offer a more natural overall look. U part wigs are suitable for wearers who embrace a larger hair volume at the front of their head with thin hair on the side or the back. Another thing that makes the two wig styles different is the band. You will need to cut the band on the U part wig first before throwing it on, which makes installation a bit longer than V part wigs. To conclude, V part wig is more friendly and less time-consuming to wear, and U part wig is better at creating a more realistic appearance. You ought to take into account your natural hair conditions first before you pick out either of them.

Will U part wigs and V part wigs replace lace wigs?

Since both U part wigs and V part wigs are free from lace and glue, some people think that they’re so competitive that they might take the place of the classic lace wigs someday in the future. To be honest, we don’t think so. Although U part wigs and V part wigs are popular new styles that can offer a more natural-looking finish, they are not universal for all. Simply put, the prerequisite for wearing a U part or V part wig is that you already have medium to long hair or ample hair volume either at the front, back or both sides of your head, otherwise, the tracks will not be hidden well. In comparison, there are no such requirements for lace front wigs or lace closure wigs, that’s why they have been regarded as go-to options for anyone looking for full coverage of their natural hair, suitable for all wearers who desire to seek beauty and boost confidence with the help of wigs.
