We know it’s hard to keep up. From V-part wigs, U-part wigs to T-part wigs… another day, a new wig construction, right? Well, lucky for you, we’re explaining what V-part wigs are and why we love them!
What is it?
Although not entirely new, the sought-over V-part wigs derive from the classic U-part wigs. V-part wigs have a V-shaped opening at the very top of the wig - the tracks are sewn in a way that creates v-shape at the top.
Why we Love Them...
There are several things to love about V-part wigs, hence their recent popularity. Here are our top four fave-things-to-love-about-them!
1. No Lace = No Glue
There are no lace closures or lace frontals involved with V-part wigs, so you know what that means... no need for glue! V-part wigs are a great alternative for those who are either allergic to lace adhesives, have sensitive skin or simply just don’t like them - no scalp irritation here!
2. Cheap and Cheerful
One of our favourite reasons - V-part wigs are amongst some of the cheapest wigs on the market. The machine-constructed wigs are a lot more affordable since they do not require the tedious construction of lace frontals or closures. While a 14" body-wave frontal unit on UNice hair would cost you 158.77, a 14" body-wave V-part unit on the same site would cost you £108.17 - £50 off!

It's true that a certain degree of skill is required when styling lace frontale/closure wigs. From bleaching, cutting and trying to hide your lace, one can end up spending countless hours to get it 'right'. And lucky for you, these are things you never need to worry about with V-part wigs. They’re also super easy to put on and remove, with the usual help of slide-in grips at the wig opening...we love a stress-free hairstyle!

4. Get The Natural Look
Unlike most wigs, V-part wigs allow you to show off the natural glory of your hairline. This makes it pretty difficult for people to detect that you're actually wearing a wig - you never have to worry about your lace matching your hairline again! Even better, you won’t find unnatural bulks and bumps on V-part wigs as they either have ‘no weft on top, or the weft is so thin, unseamed, and flat that it is impossible to detect’. For all our natural-wig lovers, this wig might have to be your next try - head over to our previous blog post that offers 15 tips on how to make your wigs look more natural and less ‘wiggy’!
Finding the right wig is a journey, and we strongly believe that there is a wig out there for everyone! If you haven't had much luck with the lace-based wigs, why not try a V-part wig for a more natural, less-chemically-invasive hairstyle? Let us know in the comments if you’ve tried one before, or, if you're considering trying one in the future...
