I’ve been on the lookout for awhile – lace front wigs with bangs have always intrigued me. I love that the lace front helps to give the bangs a bit of volume and lift, which differs from how I currently wear the front of my hair.
I’ve blogged about the Ellen Wille line of wigs before…I LOVE this brand! The hair fiber is so realistic and so silky.
It’s some of the best synthetic fiber I’ve ever felt.
I’m not 100% sure if Ellen Wille only makes lace front wigs, but I think that may be the case. I knew I could start my search with this brand.
Turns out not only does Ellen Wille make some beautiful lace front wigs but she also makes beautiful lace front wigs with bangs. The kind of bangs I’ve always wished I could have, but couldn’t (because my hair was flat and lifeless and blah).
Enter the Code Mono wig.
I loved it the second I saw it. But–dang!–it wasn’t available in my color. So I got a hair-brained idea to try something radical.
Yep, this happened:
That’s right, this die-hard brunette decided she’d embark on her own Blond Ambition tour. I decided to get the color Sandy Blonde Rooted.
Check out the bangs on this lace front wig! They are just what I never thought I could have.
Let’s see a close up of the cap, shall we? It’s a little different than the Mega Mono I wrote about. Whereas that one was a mono top, this one is a mono part.
What’s the difference?
The entire top of a mono top is made of a mesh/lace material which allows the hair to be parted any way you want and still see “scalp”. A mono part can be adjusted slightly, but you’ll only see “scalp” in the area right around the part.
This was kind of a bummer for me, since I normally wear my hair parted on the right. But, I’ll make do.
You can definitely see my bio hair peeking out from the back of the wig. This is mainly happening because the tag is still hanging down (see the glittery string?).
(Note: I do wear my hair out when I wear wigs. I think it helps them to integrate better.)
You can really see that this lace front wig with bangs has SUCH a nice low density!
The real beauty of lace front wigs is that you can wear your hair off the face (presuming, of course, you like the way the lace front looks). This lace front looks pretty good right out of the box. I’d probably trim the lace back just a tad, but you can see that it looks pretty natural, even with a bit of my bio hair stuck in it (oops).
I love the roots on Code Mono! Having a darker appearance on top allows me to wear my bio hair out underneath the wig, too.
This Ellen Wille Code Mono wig review wouldn’t be complete without a photo in natural light.
It looks a little more beigy-neutral outside and a bit warmer inside my house.
So am I going full-on blonde?
Let’s not go crazy. This was really just for fun and to let my husband enjoy the wig-wearing experience, too. He loved it.
For now, I’m enjoying wearing this wig around the house at night when I want to give my head a break from my topper’s clips.
Who knows, though, maybe someday I’ll go blonde. I really wish I was “out” with hair-wearing so that I could switch up my look every day. It would be fun to try a new look whenever I’d like to.
Check out this awesome Ellen Wille style–Code Mono is perfect if you want a realistic fiber and density.
