A material similar in appearance to nylon pantyhose that is very hard to see when it is placed against the skin. The hair is knotted into the lace and appears to grow from the scalp. The hairline of a hairpiece is the most important area. It is the part that is always detected if you wear a bad hairpiece. Only a lace front can be trusted to maintain the illusion of growing hair from the scalp.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LACE FRONTS AND FULL LACE UNITS?
Lace fronts have lace from ear-to-ear (frontals) in which it does not cover your entire head and you cannot pull up into a ponytail. Full lace wigs cover your entire head and you can pull into a high ponytail.
WHO SHOULD WEAR THE LACE FRONTS?
Anyone looking to change their look, clients with Alopecia areata, severe burns, radiation, hereditary balding or chemotherapy clients. Some insurance will help pay for this service, just refer to your unit as a "cranial prosthesis". Call your health care provider for details on how to file an insurance claim with your insurance provider.
ARE LACE FRONTS ONLY FOR WOMEN?
No. Men can have them fitted also.
HOW LONG CAN I WEAR MY LACE FRONT?
Lace fronts/full lace units can last up to one year or more if maintained properly.
WHICH FRONT EDGE IS THE LEAST DETECTABLE?
Swiss lace. Visually, it's the ultimate.
WHAT ABOUT UNDETECTABILITY AND STRENGTH?
Swiss lace is least detectable but is more fragile. French lace is very hard to detect and quite strong.
CAN I GET BLENDED COLORS?
Yes, at no additional fee.
CAN I HAVE BABY HAIR ADDED?
Yes, at no additional fee.
CAN I HAVE A PART?
Yes, freestyle (so that you can part the hair anywhere on the head). You decide!
WHAT IS INDIAN REMY HAIR?
Quite simply, the best hair on the market.
HOW DO I PUT IT ON?
Instructions are included with your order.
WHICH IS BETTER, TAPE OF GLUE?
Everyone has their methods of choice. Generally, it is much easier to use tape and it provides a longer hold, however, some clients prefer glue. There is no right or wrong way. It really is an individual choice.
HOW FAR FORWARD SHOULD IT BE WORN?
Often, new wearers of hair place the unit too far forward. They think that looks okay, but people really don't have hair coming out of their foreheads. The hairline should begin where your natural hairline would have begun. That's at least three fingers above the furrowed eyebrows.
HOW DO I REMOVE MY LACE HAIRPIECE WITHOUT DAMAGING IT?
We recommend (and sell) an oil remover that is second to none C-22 and Lace Release. Spray or drip it along the hairline and wait for the bond to release before lifting the hairpiece. It will lift in a matter of seconds.
SHOULD I START TO RELEASE AT THE FRONT OR BACK? Whichever you prefer. The Adhesive Remover prevents the new tape from sticking to the unit. Clean off the Adhesive Remover, (which is oil based) with alcohol. Then shampoo and condition and let the hair dry naturally.
DO I HAVE TO TAKE IT OFF EVERY NIGHT?
No, you can wear these units from 1 day up to 5 weeks without ever taking it off. If well maintained you can remove, shampoo the unit and your scalp/hair and replace for continued use for years. This all depends on the adhesives used and how well you maintain your unit.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CLEAN THE UNIT?
The best way is to remove it, remove the remaining adhesive residue and then wash it and dry it. Details are provided with each purchase.
WHAT ABOUT STYLING AIDS?
Please avoid gels and mousses containing alcohol as they will rapidly dry out and age your unit. Hair serums are great and so are some creams and pomades, but avoid product buildup by using a clarifying shampoo occasionally.
Try one product at a time, but don't mix, for example, a silicone based substance like a serum with an oil based substance like hair cream. You might end up with strange feeling hair and have to wash it all out and start over.
IS IT SAFE TO USE A HAIR DRYER TO STYLE MY HAIRPIECE?
High heat is death to your unit. Dry hair by shaking out a piece that you are not wearing or by rolling it in a towel. If you washed it in place, blot with a towel and your body heat should finish drying it out in no time. If you must, you may use low heat or cool air to dry your unit.
WILL THE UNIT TAKE DYE THE SAME WAY AS GROWING HAIR?
The hair in the hairpiece will take the color about three to four times faster than growing hair.
DO I USE THE SAME COLOR?
Generally, using a color that is one shade lighter will yield the perfect match for the hairpiece hair.
WILL THE RESULTS HAVE UNWANTED RED TONES?
You should stay with green base ash colors if possible and you may add a few drops of a drabber such as "Red Out" to the mix.
WHAT SORT OF COLOR SHOULD I BUY?
Rather than mix a pack of color and throw most of it away, use professional products. Use any brand of developer in either 20% or 40% volume. Cream developer is less messy than liquid. Use professional color from a leading brand such as Clairol, L'Oreal, Wella, Revlon etc. Normally the mix ratio is 1:1 color gel to developer cream.
CAN YOU EXPLAIN BLEACHED KNOTS?
When a dark hair is tied to the base of a hairpiece with a knot, you can see a dark dot on the skin, especially when the base is lace. Lace cannot hide the knot in the same way a monofilament base does. Bleaching the knots, usually only done at the lace front, but sometimes all over, makes the knots hard to see, and it helps create the illusion that your hair is growing out of your head. So this is a must have choice for dark colors.
CAN I HAVE BLEACHED KNOTS IF I HAVE DARK SKIN AND BLACK HAIR?
Yes. The bleaching will still help to hide the knot.

DESCRIBE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FRENCH LACE, SWISS LACE AND THIN SKIN?
French lace is more durable than Swiss lace and is very undetectable. Swiss lace is quite fragile but more un-detectable (than French lace). Swiss lace is not recommended for the new lace front wearer. Thin skin is very natural looking but can be very hot. Thin skin is made of a polyurethane material (plastic) and not recommended for warm climates.
WHAT IS THE BEST QUALITY HAIR FOR A HAIRPIECE OR WIG?
Our Indian hair is widely regarded as the best hair. It does not tangle, and if you choose a darker color and less curly hair, it is simply unbeatable with its beautiful feel and long life.
I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHICH KNOTS TO ORDER.
Then simply don't specify. We know the ideal knot for each area. Don't even ask! We use the least visible choice for each specific application.
HOW CAN I STYLE MY NEW HAIR WITHOUT DAMAGING IT?
Avoid brushing or combing wet hair as it can get plucked out in the process. Do not use hot air hair dryers. If you must, use the lowest temperature possible. For synthetic hair including human hair with synthetic gray, use no heat at all.
Avoid blow drying with tension from a round brush and avoid using heated styling tools. To protect the base, the best and safest tool you can buy is a vent or cushion brush that has stiff plastic bristles, widely spaced, each with a protective ball on the end. We will give you one of these brushes as part of the gift with purchase promotion.
HOW DO I KEEP THE HAIR AS BEAUTIFUL AND SILKY AS WHEN IT WAS NEW?
Even the best hairpiece hair is dead and is not rooted inside an oil producing shaft. Using popular conditioners and serums etc., helps. Also, use cool water temperatures when washing and low heat settings if you must use a dryer or heat styling aide. We sell shampoo and conditioning that will aide you in keeping your unit in its optimum state.
CAN I GET HIGHLIGHTS?
Yes. On the order form you can give us the percentage and color you desire. The highlighted hair will be the same color all the way from base to tip.
WHAT DOES THE HAIRLINE LOOK LIKE? CAN YOU TELL IT’S A WIG?
That is the beauty of the full lace wig - it is totally undetectable and creates a flawless hairline. No one will know that you have a wig on. The wig is glued to the entire outside perimeter of your head creating it's own invisible hairline. We provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to put your wig on.
HOW LONG WILL MY WIG LAST?
Your lace front wig can last for years depending on the upkeep and usage of the wig.
WHAT IS REMY HAIR?
Remy Hair is human hair that is collected directly from a single hair donor. It is also referred to as Cuticle Hair or Virgin Hair. It is the softest and most natural hair on the market. The majority of human hair sold in the industry is non-cuticle hair. The hair cuticle has been stripped by using an acid-bath. However, with Remy hair, this is not done, so the hair cuticle is intact, therefore the hair is stronger. It also makes the hair softer and more natural and makes it so it does not tangle which allows it to be ideal for longer wear.
DOES THE WIG COME WITH BABY HAIR?
YES, baby hair is a FREE Option - we do not charge extra to add baby hair
WHAT DOES DENSITY MEAN?
Density is defined as how thick or thin you want your hair to be.

HOW DO I ATTACH OR WEAR THE WIG?

CAN I GO SWIMMING WITH THE WIG OR GET IT WET?
