With so many different styles of wigs on the marketplace, picking a wig can be pretty confusing. There are lace front wigs, human hair wigs and several other wig-like hairpieces for women. In this buying guide, we take you from A to Z of buying wigs.
What Is A Wig?
A wig is a head covering that’s typically made from either human hair or animal hair, although some wigs are made with synthetic fibers.
What Is A Lace Front Wig?
attempt to create the illusion of natural hair growth along the hairline. They are made of the Highest Quality Indian, Chinese, or European Remy Hair (your choice of which), where the hairs are hand tied onto a fragile lace base.
This illusion generally improves the natural appearance of the hair and allows the wearer to style the wig away from their face without revealing that the fact they’re wearing a wig.
Why Wear Wigs?
Some people simply want to hide their hair loss, as wearing a wig can be far less intrusive (and cheaper) than restoring hair through surgery or even installing hair extensions. Wigs for cancer patients are also very common.
Some women use wigs like apparel, as an opportunity to periodically change-up their appearance. In the film, it’s common for actors and actresses to use wigs to suit the characters they portray.
However, real human hair wigs also have some shortcomings of its own. For instance, it requires a lot of maintenance. Just like with natural, you need to put in a lot of effort to care for it.

Tips To Get The Best Out Of Your Lace Front Wig
1. Hide Your Natural Hair: We recommend that you pull back your hair and secure it before you wear the wig. This will ensure that none of your hair is accidentally exposed under the lace front.
If for whatever reason you don’t have hair, simply align the lace front with your natural hairline to create a seamless transition from your skin to the wigs artificial hairline.
2. Match It To Your Skin Tone: This is how many women have done it for years.
3. Handle The Wig With Care: The lace on the wig is made out of very delicate material. Ensure that you handle it with care every time you take it off or wash it.
If you feel that you need to trim your wig, we recommend that you take it to a professional. The lace may unravel if you try to trim it yourself.
How Will It Fit You?
How the wig fits depends on your measurements. The measurements are the most important part of your custom ordering process. You must measure your head at 6 different points with a flexible tape measurer.
- From Front to Nape
- Ear to Ear Across Front Hairline
- Ear to Ear Over Top of Head
- Temple to Temple
- Nape of Neck
How To Choose Wigs?
Consider style length：As a rule, shorter “shake-n-go” styles are easiest to care for. Longer synthetic styles require a little more maintenance. A common mistake women make is choosing a style that’s too long, which might not only be more work, but may overwhelm their features.
Consider your lifestyle：What does your typical day involve? Will you be wearing your wig every day, or only occasionally? These questions, as well as others concerning your work, recreational and social activity, may affect which style you choose. Be sure to keep your typical daily or weekly activities in mind as you try different wigs.
Customizing your style：Before wearing your wig for the first time, take it to your hairstylist and have them trim the bangs and sides to suit your face. If you plan on coloring a human hair wig, we recommend having your hairstylist do it.
Choose a color that flatters：Many women feel most comfortable selecting a shade that matches their natural hair color. To do so, we recommend looking at your hair and color samples together under natural light to determine which color most closely resembles your own.
Washing And Care
1.Brush hair in sections (bottom, middle, top) from top to bottom with a wide tooth comb. Do not over brush, cut off excess tangles as desired.
