Frequently Asked Questions
What is a full lace wig?
Also known has a "Cranial Hair Prosthesis"
Full lace wigs are unlike traditional wigs. A full lace wig appears as if the hair is growing directly from your scalp. Each hair strand is individually hand tied to a lace (mesh like) base cap, which allows for a free flowing head of hair that can be parted in any direction, and even worn in a high pony tail or updo!
How long do lace wigs last?
This depends on the quality of hair used to create your lace wig. With the combining of high quality remy hair and proper care, maintenance and wear; your lace wig unit can last from 1 year to 18 months or more. Just like with shoes it's best to have more than one in your "hairdrobe" to rotate.
I have a full head of hair, can I wear a lace wig.
Sure, you must make sure your hair is prepared as flat as possible by wrapping or braiding ect. You'd then place a stocking cap (in the color of your scalp) over your hair in order to simulate a natural scalp.
Do I have to shave my hairline to wear lace wigs?
Absolutely not! You do not have to shave your hairline in order to wear lace wigs. The lace wig unit is adhered to the skin just past your natural hairline. However you may find it helpful to shave excess hair in the neck area to achieve a good bond at the nape. *Note: When taking your measurements be sure to take into account the space needed to apply your unit past your natural hairline.
How do you apply a full lace wig?
Lace wigs are applied using toupee tape, or a liquid lace wig adhesive. The tape or adhesive is applied around the natural hairline and the perimeter lace of the lace wig unit is pressed into the tape/adhesive. Please visit the "How to Guides" section of the website for detailed instructions.
Can I apply heat to the hair on my lace wig unit such as curling or flat irons?
Yes, our lace wig units are made using 100% human hair unless otherwise stated in the item description so you want to treat the hair as you'd treat your own. As with your own hair excessive heat styling will eventually cause damage. Unlike your own hair this hair is no longer living, so retaining moisture is a major factor in maintaining a healthy looking head of hair on your lace unit. Keep heat styling to a maximum of once a week if at all, roller setting the hair is a great alternative to curling irons and it is always recommend to air dry the hair. For the best results in terms of longevity keep heat styling to a minimum. Note: When heat styling your hair be sure to use a silicone based heat protection serum such as Simply Stylin' or Biosilk silk therapy.
What is the difference between Swiss lace and Super fine Swiss lace?
We construct our lace wig units using two types of fine lace, Swiss lace and Super fine Swiss lace. These fine laces are soft, very flexible, thin and provide you with the most undetectable application results possible, unlike the easily detected and hard to the touch laces you'll typically find on beauty supply store bought lace wigs.
Super fine Swiss lace is the most undetectable between the two as well as the most delicate. We recommend only the experienced lace wig wearers opting for super fine swiss lace.
Swiss lace is also very undetectable. It is the stronger and more durable than super fine swiss lace, however it still needs to be handled with care, never pull or tug or your lace regardless of type.
What are baby hairs?
Baby hairs are short fine hairs that are placed at the hairline for a more natural look. They can be placed at the front, on the side temple area, the back or around the entire perimeter.
How long will my custom order take?
Custom orders can take from 5 to 6 weeks to complete and ship. However we do offer a rush order service that allows for the completion and shipment of your order within 3 weeks from payment, (additional charges apply.)
