If this is your first time ordering a lace wig then you may not be familiar with all of the options available for customization of your wig. So, here we will break these options down for you so that you will be able to make an informed choice in choosing the options that you want for your wig.
If you plan on leaving a little of the lace out beyond the hairline then you should choose a lace color that is closest to your skin complexion. The majority of experienced lace front wig wearers prefer to get a lace close to their skin tone. This is the best option if you don’t want to experiment with using makeup/concealer to camouflage the lace.
- French Lace –French lace is slightly thicker and more durable than Swiss lace. We generally recommend that first time buyers go with French lace because they are inexperienced at wig application and removal and are more likely to damage a wig cap made of Swiss lace. With experience applying and removing wigs, you may feel more comfortable with Swiss lace.
- Swiss Lace – Swiss lace is finer, and more fragile, than French lace, and blends better with the skin for a less visible appearance. Swiss lace is only recommended for those who have some experience with wig application and removal.
- Standard Layered – The hair length is measured from the crown to the tip of the hair. What this means is that the hair will not all be the same length but will have 3 staggered or layered lengths. For example…if you request a 18-inch wig, 30% will be 14 inches (front of wig), 30% will be 16 inches (half crown and sides), and 40% will be 18 inches (back crown and bottom of wig). Culminating in a finished length of 18 inches. Other lengths are measured like this too, in 2-inch increments. The layered style is the most natural looking as it mimics the natural growth pattern of human hair.
- All Hair Same Length – Choose this option if you want all of the hair to be the same length. For example, if you request an 18″ wig then each strand will be 18 inches under this option. Selecting this option will also result in a finished length that is longer than 18 inches. There is an additional charge for this option.
