Choosing the Right Lace Type

We have 2 types of lace. French and Swiss.

Swiss lace is the most undetecbale. It's very fine, thin, and fragile. Must be handled with care!

French lace is thicker than Swiss therefore, it is more durable. The lace is still undetecable when applied properly and is more suitable for new users.

Choosing a Cap Size & Measuring Head

Unlike traditional wigs, you must choose a cap size when purchasing a lace wig. Sizes range from Small to Large. If you're unsure what size you will need you should measure your head and compare with our instock cap sizes to see which one will fit you best. To see cap measurements and for instructions on how to measure your head click here. Medium caps are standard size and will fit most women with a normal size head. When placing a custom order its always better to give the exact measurements of your head.

Choosing the Right Density

Wig density refers to the overall thickness of the hair. Most women prefer standard density for the most natural look. The hair is light around the perimeter and gradually thickens. The hair is not too thin but like a standard head of hair. Choosing a higher density such as 125% 150% or 175% will result in a more thicker wig. 175% is the highest density for instock wigs. The wig will still look natural but it will be very thick. View Our Density Chart

Choosing a Hair Type

Indian, Mongolian, Malaysian, Asian, and European Remy are all suitable high quality hair types. Some are more plentiful than others. Rare hair is more expensive to acquire therefore it costs more. Indian Remy is the most plentiful and is standard for all wigs. Standard remy hair has been processed with chemicals to acheive certain colors and styles. Virgin hair is kept in its original state and is free of any dyes or chemicals therefore it lasts longer. It is also more expensive because it must be gathered in a different manner to keep all the cuticles aligned in the same direction. This makes the hair last even longer because it eliminates matting and tangling of the hair. Different hair types have different characteristics.

Choosing the Right Cap

Full Lace Wigs vs. Glueless Lace Wigs

The most natural undetectable option is going to be the full lace wig. It must be glued down around the full perimter of your head. If you want to wear high ponytails, if you want the most natural hairline this is the only option! You can however add adjustable straps to a full lace wig so you dont have to glue it down in the back but only in the front. Good for clients who order shorter lengths and do not plan to wear it up in a ponytail. Glueless lace wigs give you the freedom of parting and styling your wig as desired but the hair line is not as natural as a full lace but still very suitable and worn by many. It eliminates the need for any glue or tape while still providing versatility in styling. If you're allergic to glue or dont like using it, the glueless full lace wig is a better option and it still looks very natural. To find out about other cap styles click here.

Adding Thin Skin Perimeter

A thin skin perimter is applied to a full lace wig to help protect the lace. It creates a barrier between the lace and the adhesives. It makes your wig more durable.

Bleached Knots

Bleaching of the knots are done to hide the knot where the hair is tyed to the lace. It makes the wig look more natural. Color #1 can not be bleached.
