What is a lace wig?
Lace wigs are made with a mesh-like lace material in the front, around the edges or all over in which individual hair strands are hand-tied. The lace is designed to blend in with your own scalp creating a natural, realistic looking hairline. When properly worn, with special adhesives, the hairline can be so realistic looking and virtually undetectable, giving the appearance of natural growing hair. These are the same wigs that many celebrities wear.

I want to order a lace wig but would like additional information. Can you help me?
Absolutely!! We offer a host of helpful information for your reference. Please visit ABOUT OUR LACE WIGS for additional information. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us and we will be more than happy to assist you..

Lace Front vs. Full Lace. What is the difference?
Lace Front wigs have lace only in the front, creating a realistic and natural looking hairline. Full Lace wigs contain lace throughout or around the entire base making it possible to wear your unit in a ponytail and creating a realistic and natural looking hairline around the entire unit. For added comfort, we do recommend stretch lace in the back. If you order a full lace unit, the base cannot stretch to accommodate your growing hair.

Can I wear a lace wig if I have my own hair?
Yes, however you have to wear your hair as flat as possible (i.e. in cornrows) underneath. It is also best to have your own scalp showing (parts) when you wear the unit as it creates a more natural, realistic look. I tends to look very unnatural if you have dark hair and lighter skin, but when you part your hair, you see a dark scalp. If you are unable to show your own scalp through your parts, wig caps work perfectly to conceal your hair color and create a natural scalp color.

Can I go swimming with my lace wig?
Yes, you can continue to do your usual activities with the unit on. Please avoid swimming or getting the unit wet with water or sweat for 24 hours after applying adhesives or tapes.

Can I wear my lace wig in a ponytail?
Yes, simply request Fine French lace or thin skin all around the perimeter of the unit.

I have lost all my hair. Can I still wear a lace wig?
Absolutely! Whether you have experienced hair loss due to chemotherapy, alopecia, trichatilomania, body dysmorphia, burns, etc., our staff can help you get your customized unit.

Go to top of page


Can I straighten and curl my lace wig hair?
Yes, this hair is 100% human and can be styled the same way you would do your own natural hair. Your unit can be permed, bleached or dyed however be sure to avoid getting any chemicals on the base. Don't forget, just as with our own natural hair, it can become dry and damaged when chemically processed. Be sure to regularly deep condition the hair on the unit and avoid daily use of heated appliances whenever possible.

How many colors can I use in my lace wig?
We do not charge any additional fees to add more than two (2) colors however we do not suggest adding more than about three (3).

How long does it take for me to get my wig after I order it?
It generally takes about four to six weeks to receive your custom lace wig from the time we receive your order. There is no "Express Shipping" available for any of the lace wig products.

What if I don't like my wig, can I return it?
No. All sales are final due to hygienic reasons. In addition, your wig is customized just for you so it would be extremely difficult to resale it to another client.

How long will my lace wig last?
With proper care, your lace wig can last about a year. Swiss Lace is the most durable and lasts longer than the Fine French Lace, which is thinner and more undetectable.

What is the best cap design for me?
Each person has their own specific design needs based on their life-style and how undetectable they want their unit to be. The finer the lace, the less detectable however the less durable, especially with daily adhesives. Thin Skin is less detectable to the eye but a bit more detectable to touch than lace. In addition, thin skin does not allow proper ventilation because it is not a breathable material.

Do you keep any units in stock?
We offer 100% customizable lace wig systems and we do now offer IN STOCK lace wigs, in limited quantities.

How do I attach my lace wig?
Please note each attachment method depends on your individual pattern of hair loss, personal life-style and desire for security. If you are new to wearing lace wigs, your specific attachment needs and method should be discussed with a professional stylist.

When you receive your unit, it will have about 4 inches of extra lace around the perimeter. Your stylist should place the unit on your head and determine how much lace should remain before cutting away. After your unit has been trimmed, your stylist will apply an adhesive to the hairline, being careful to not get the adhesive in your hair (please note that some adhesives will require an application on the hairline AND the lace). The lace is then applied over the adhesive and secured by rolling the back end of a hair comb over the lace to ensure that everything is completely flat. Depending on the type of adhesive used, you may need to hold the unit in place and allow the adhesive to dry. A hair dryer on a cool setting will work. Once the glue has completely dried, the hair can be cut and/or styled.

You will find that everyone has their own style of applying lace wigs. While one person may choose to apply the adhesive and unit inch by inch, others may choose to apply it to the entire front hairline before putting on the unit. Some prefer to adhere some of the baby hairs down to help conceal the lace and/or "shine" that some adhesives create, however, some stylists prefer to "airbrush" the hairline.

For clients with more active lifestyles, your stylist might suggest adding a few "stitches" to further secure your unit. Just like with a weave, a needle and thread is used to add a few stitches to attach the unit to your tracks. In the event that your unit is ever pulled or snagged, it will minimize the stress on your sensitive hairline skin. To avoid damage to the hair or the unit's base, please do not attempt to remove these stitches yourself!!

Adhesives vs. Tapes. What should I use?
Whether you choose to attach your unit with an adhesive or tape, it's completely up to you. Both adhesives and tapes offer daily, weekly and monthly attachments that can be used for the lace or thin skin units. Be sure to purchase the solvent or remover to properly remove the unit. Please make note that daily/weekly attachment methods cause more wear and tear on your hair system and it is a good idea to have a back-up unit, just in case.

What type of hair is used for your units?
We ONLY use 100% Premium Remy hair when creating your Premium Remy Lace Units. We now offer 100% Toyokalon (synthetic fiber) Lace Wigs however we NEVER mix the synthetic hair with the Premium Remy hair. Some store owners and/or factories try to cut costs by using much cheaper materials so they can sell a “real” product at a cheaper price,...unbeknownst to their clients. This is mainly because some store owners, whom are unaware of this practice, are still labeling, marketing and selling units as "100% Remy" when they are indeed not. Please do your research and keep in mind that you get what you pay for. All of our SYNTHETIC lace wigs are labeled as such and we in no way try to mislead our clients by thinking they are getting something “real” for half the price.
