What is a Lace Wig?
A lace front wig is a wig made with human hair tied to a lace base. The two types of lace used in lace front wigs are French lace and Swiss lace. A "lace front" wig has lace at the hairline that is secured with liquid adhesive or tape. When the lace is adhered to your own hairline, it gives an invisible hairline, making it look as though the hair is growing out of your scalp. All of our wigs are made with Remy hair. Remy (or Remi), Chinese, and Malyasian hair. The hair is hand tied onto the lace which gives it a flawless look. The hair has not been weakened by stripping. Remy, Chinese, and Malaysian hair is created by careful processing which leaves the cuticle in place. The result is stronger, superior hair. Still, this hair has undergone some processing (such as cleaning, curly perming or dyeing), so it should also be treated gently. Remy hair is often referred to as "cuticle hair" because the cuticle is left intact. Hair that is stripped of the cuticle is often chemically treated to give the hair an artificial softness and shine, which wears down over time, causing tangling and a poor appearance. Remy hair does not have this problem and is the highest quality hair you can purchase. Each wig is handmade, with experpienced wigmakers securing one or more hair strands at a time, to the lace base. Our knotting technique creates a multi-directional hairstyling, with a natural hair flow. Knots are lightened for a realistic looking "scalp". Each wig takes over thirty hours of labor to complete. All wigs that we offer are new, never worn and top quality. The additional lace in the front of the wig is not meant to be left on for wear. Lace front units are designed to have the additional material trimmed prior to wear, what is left is a natural hairline which appears to grow from the scalp; leaving a flawless, natural look.

What is a Lace Frontal?
A lace frontal wig is manufactured with a thin lace that extends from ear to ear across the hairline. When you receive the unit the lace will be really long in the front, you will cut the lace along the front of the unit. The goal here is to create yourself a new hairline. You will not cut all of the lace, as you will apply adhesive to the lace/your new hairline.
