This is a problem when trying to create a natural hairline and for this reason most front hairlines should be single hairs, or single knotted on a flesh tone lace material, which is also popular for full lace wigs.

Single Knots are hard to detect, but easy to shed. By contrast, double Knots are hard to shed, but easy to detect. For the advantages and the disadvantages of the two types of knots, usually wig suppliers recommend single knots at the frontal hairline 2 inches or around a perimeter of 2 inches especially for full lace wigs. This means the knots are hidden under the inside mesh (There are two pieces of mesh), and are completely invisible, giving off the impression that the hair is growing out of the scalp. This is the best method to hide the knots at present, but the procedure of processing is very complete.
