Lace is the most undetectable material used in hairpieces these days. Once placed on your scalp, there is no discernable netting to signal that the hair on your head is not the hair you were born with. The foundation disappears as it touches your skin.
French Lace is a good choice especially for bases. It is very durable and has good disappearing qualities on the front hairline as well. It is available in bleached white, pink, tan, brown, and black colors. If matched in proper color with the own skin tone it is undetectable as much as Swiss Lace. We recommend French Lace for first time wearers. Swiss Lace is a delicate lace and can be used for the front hairline in addition to the entire base.
Lace cap material is manufactured in various shades to match various skin tones. Select a color that is the closest match to your skin tone. If you are unsure of which lace color will closely match, you can order a lace sample board to determine an accurate match. Transparent is best for all skin colors.
Stretch panel generally ensures a perfect fit without adding any extra bulk, is highly desired for new lace wig wearers. Stretch panel is a safety net for when you are unsure you have measured your head correctly it allows your wig to fit. Stretch panel locations are middle of wig (crown)
We recommend freestyle as it gives you freedom in hair styling. You may place your part anywhere you decide with the freestyle selection. If you select other options you will have less hairstyling flexibility.
Bleaching knots create the illusion of hair growing directly from your scalp. If you have every pulled a dark hair from the skin you will notice that the end of the hair that was closest to the scalp was lighter in color than the end of the hair furthest from the scalp. Bleaching Knots creates this effect. If you are ordering a wig that is light in color (blonde or similar) you do not have to select bleached knots as the hair is already light.
We recommend designing your wig with baby hair if you are a new lace wig wearer. Baby hair helps in disguising those less than perfect applications that may occur if you are new or in a rush. Additionally, hair does not grow from anyone's scalp without baby hair. The hair closest to the hairline, ear to ear (crown), or ear tabs.
KNOTS (Single and Double)
When hair is ventilated through a wig cap it is tied in a knot. Single knots are generally ordered for wigs that have a lighter density. Single knots are usually less detectable in comparison to double knots. However, double knots are just as undetectable. It's a personal choice. Double knots are preferred for durability and heavy density wigs.
All of our wigs are designed with natural hairlines. However, you may have a unique hairline (e.g. widow's peak). If you select, we will customize your lace front, full lace wig, hairpiece or frontal with a widow's peak. Please keep in mind that unique hairlines may not perfectly mirror your unique hairline. If you would like an exact match, please send us a photo of your hairline.
Additionally, many of our customers have a head full of hair under their wig. If this describes you, you may want to add a bit to your measurements so that your wig will cover your natural hairline. Please be careful when doing this especially if you have a short forehead.
