Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a lace front and full lace wig?
A lace front is a hairpiece that has lace from ear-to-ear, which will leave you with an undetectable and unbelievably natural looking hairline. The lacefronts, have monofilament from where the lace ends in the middle of the unit to the nape of the neck. Some of our other pieces have thin skin in the back so it can be trimmed back and glued down (these units can be worn in a ponytail).
A full lace wig is a unit made of all lace, it can be glued down all the way around the perimeter of the unit. You can wear this in a high ponytail. If you did not want to wait 4 weeks for a custom this is the closest you can get.
All of the units are 100% hand-tied and knotted.
How long can I wear the unit?
I have some clients that take their unit off every night, and than others that wear them for weeks at a time. Depending on the holding strength of the glue or tape you can wear it up to a month.
How long will the wig last?
I have units that have lasted for up to three years with proper care. Usually they last up to one year. Depending on various things like, how you take care of it, how often you wear and how you treat it. Comb and brush your wig gently, condition it every once in a while, and it will last for a long time.
How can I prevent my lace wig from shedding/losing hair?
We recommend using knot sealer to seal your knots on the underside of your wig. Just flip your wig inside out and be sure to protect the remaining hair with a plastic bag. Spray a light spray of knot sealer on the knots of lace wig cap. You should seal your knots after every washing. Knot sealer is available online for about $25.00, however, you can use matte clear acrylic spray that you may find in any craft shop for a couple of dollars.
What are baby hairs?
Baby hairs are fine hairs that are placed at the hairline for a more natural look. They can be placed around the hairline in the front, back or around the entire perimeter.
What are bleached knots?
Bleached knots is currently the best method of making the hair appear as if it is growing from your scalp. If you do not have bleached knots you will see a dark dot on the skin, especially when the base is lace. However, if the knots are single knots at the hairline, you do not need to bleach the knots.
What is the difference between Swiss Lace and French Lace?
There are three types of lace bases - Super fine Swiss Lace, Swiss Lace and French lace
Super fine Swiss lace is the the thinnest in quality. It is also the most delicate base available. Perfect for use in the front, as it is invisible and does not show.
Swiss lace is slightly thicker as compared to the Super Fine quality. This does not mean that it is visible. In fact, this lace is also a good lace for the front, as you cannot see it. It is also more durable in strength.
French lace is extremely durable and cannot be seen from the front as well. Most people prefer this lace because it is more durable
What color lace should I choose?
This depends on your scalp color, not your complexion color.
We offer the following colors: Transparaent, Light Brown, Brown and Dark Brown. You may dye your lace.
How do I dye the lace on my lace wig?
Lace should only be colored where it is visible (at the front hairline and where parted) One method: Using a Q-tip, dip the Q-tip into Rit Dye (fabric dye) and dab onto the lace cap where you want to change the color. We recommend using a Rit Dye color that is darker than your own skin tone. You may have to apply the Rit Dye more than one time to obtain the desired color on your lac cap. Also the color may fade with washing, so plan to redo.
Do I need a professional to apply my lace wig?
No, not at all. We include application and removal instructions, with every order. With a a little effort you can apply your wig yourself.

During very hot weather you may find wearing a lace wig uncomfortable, particularly if you are not used to ewaring a wig. Lace wigs need to be handled delicately, it is recommended that customers purchase a minimum of two wigs per year. Lace wigs ar more expensive than a machine-made wig, but a lace wig looks more natural when attached properly.
Are lace wigs less expensive than hair extensions & weaves?
Yes! Hair extensions are very expensive, you are not only paying for the hair, but also paying a stylist to install it and subsequent upkeep. Extensions require a lot of maintenance and returns to the salon every couple of weeks to have your extensions maintained. Adding $$$!
Extensions also damage your scalp and hair, and can actually cause you to permanently lose your hair. Many of our customers switched to wearing lace wigs after losing their hair from extensions, chemo-therapy or other medical issues. Now, because of celebrities like Beyonce, Tyra Banks and Jessica Simpson, lace wigs have gained popularity offering fabulous hair options.
A lace wig can last for years with proper care. If you are a daily wig wearer, we suggest getting a few different wigs and alternating them, so your wigs will last much longer.
