- Unlike regular wigs, Lace Wigs are hand made by meticulously tying strands of hair to a fine lace mesh material thus affording lace wigs superior advantages over regular wigs. The Strands of hair tied to the lace material not only allows for a light weight fit but if also create an impressive illusion of the hair growing out of a scalp. The lace, once adhered to the skin, virtually vanishes creating a natural looking and flawless hairline. Lace wigs also have amazing versatility and style flexibility. The full lace base allows the wig to be parted anywhere and can be worn in high ponytail or up do!
Up until recent years, lace wigs have been worn primarily by actors and people who suffered from hair loss due to medical problems such as Cancer and Alopecia. Now Lace wigs have exploded into the mainstream hair and beauty scene as more and more people discover their versatility and natural appearance. These wigs have also become increasingly popular among Celebrities such as Mary J Blige, Trya Banks, Beyonce and many more.
“Full Lace Wigs” are lace wigs which are designed with the entire wig cap being made from lace allowing for style versatility including multi-directional parting and the ability to style high up dos and ponytails. “Lace Front Wig” or Front Lace Wig only has lace in the front of the wig and the remainder of the wig is made from a regular netted wig cap as a result Lace front wigs have limited style possibilities.
Yes! You can braid/cornrow, wrap, or flatten hair to prepare for application. The main objective is to get one’s hair as flat as possible for the most natural look.
REMEMBER TO ALWAYS WEAR A WIG CAP TO PROTECT YOUR HAIR!!
Once applied correctly our wigs are, indeed, very undetectable.
Please note that all our in stock units have medium brown lace. Medium brown is suitable for a large range of complexions. It is suitable for people with dark brown complexion like Kelly Rolland and for people with light to medium brown complexions like Ashanti and everything in between.
Yes, you can certainly swim and exercise in your wig if the wig is applied with an appropriate adhesive that can withstand this type of activity. After swimming we highly recommend that you wash your wig to remove all Chlorine and/or Salt water from the hair.
Full Lace wigs can be parted anywhere on the cap! If you are covering your hair, the trick is to have your parts look natural by either wearing a stocking or wig cap that is close to your skin’s color.
If your unit is 100% human hair you can technically color the hair, however, since the hair in most cases has already been dyed, additional processing could significantly shorten the life of your wig. Using Virgin hair is recommended because virgin hair has not been previously processed or colored.
You can simply, order a Custom Lace Wig which you can customize your wig to your preference (IE: Color, length, texture).
Our Human Hair lace wig are made with High Quality Indian or Chinese Remy hair. Lace Frenzy also now offers lace wigs made with 100% Natural Unprocessed Virgin hair. Our Virgin hair is a superior human hair grade that is collected from a single hair donor. The cuticle layer of the hair is left intact making the hair easy to manage and virtually tangle free.
No!!A properly applied and removed lace wig will not damage your hairline. Please make sure you use an oil based solvent for removal to prevent the hair around your hairline from breaking off.
ALWAYS REMEMBER TO WEAR A WIG CAP TO PROTECT YOUR HAIR!!
Full Lace wigs can last anywhere from 6 months to a Year or ever more depending on use and how well it is taken care of. Lace Frenzy will provide you a complementary set of care instructions with your wig purchase.
Density is defined as how thick or thin the hair on the unit is. The standard and most popular choice is 120% which is Medium Thick Density. The average human head is considered 100% density so 120% is thicker. Most women achieve a natural appearance with light to medium or medium density; however, your choice will depend on your personal style preference. Lace Frenzy stock wigs have light density around the perimeter and medium 120% elsewhere.
French lace is stronger and will hold up better over the long run, French lace is slightly more detectable because of its thickness. Swiss lace is finer and therefore is less detectable and blends better with the skin/complexion after application, however it is slightly less durable and it rips easier if not handled with proper care. Lace Frenzy stock wigs are all made with Swiss Lace.
A bleached knot is a technique where we bleach out the knot that is made when strands of hair are hand-tied into the lace at the base of the cap. It bleaches the knot out, making it a little lighter so that it does not stand out as much. It gives it a more natural appearance as though the hairs are growing out of the scalp. This is recommended when you choice a dark hair color. Lace Frenzy Lace wigs come with bleached knots only around the perimeter.
How long your wig stays on will depend largely upon what type of adhesive you use and how it responds to your body chemistry. Most of our customers achieve a 1 to 2 weeks hold with the right adhesive. We do not recommend keeping the wig on for more than two weeks because over extended wears can cause damage to your own hair line. Find an adhesive that works for you and your body chemistry. The best way to find the “the one” is by trial and error.
