READ BELOW TO BECOME MORE EDUCATED IN DECIDING UPON THE RIGHT WIG FOR YOU BEFORE MAKING YOUR PURCHASE WITH US.
What Type of Wig is best for You?
This unit uses a swiss lace closure to close off the wig, usually a 4x4, 5x5 or 6x6. 4x4 means the closure will have 4 inches of parting space starting from your forehead back towards your nape, and will measure 4 inches across your forehead, this applies for 5x5 and 6x6. This protective style allows you to reframe from leaving your natural hair out. Its very simple to maintain and beginner friendly. We do not use or accept silk base closures.
This unit uses a Swiss lace 13x4 or 13x6 frontal that expands from ear to ear. 13x 4 means that the frontal will measure 13 inches across your front, covering your entire hairline and leaving extra lace that will need to be cut off. This allows for every size head to be able to wear a frontal. Measuring from front to nape, you will be provided 4 inches of parting. This concept also applies to 13x6 frontals. Frontals are more versatile, giving an appearance of a natural hairline and more parting space.
MEASUREMENTS AND STYLING
IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW YOUR MEASUREMENTS WHEN GETTING A WIG UNIT WHETHER YOU ARE PURCHASING OR CUSTOMIZING A UNIT. PRIOR TO PLACING AN ORDER PLEASE KNOW OR MEASURE THE SIZE OF YOUR HEAD IN ORDER FOR YOUR UNIT TO BE PERFECTLY MADE FOR YOU. THE AVERAGE CIRCUMFERENCES MEASURE 21",22", OR 23".
When it comes to styling please be aware that all of our units come fully customized. When placing your orders you'll be asked to enter your desired parting and hairline such as side part with a natural hairline with baby hair. Below are examples of this request but please feel free to reach out and contact us if you have any questions.
Bleaching the knots and PLucking
THIS IS WHERE LIA USES POWDER AND DEVELOPER TO BLEACH THE KNOTS ON A CLOSURE OR FRONTAL TO GET RID OF ALL OF THE BLACK DOTS ON THE LACE TO MAKE IT APPEAR MORE NATURAL. THIS IS INCLUDED WHEN PURCHASING A UNIT WITH US.
PLUCKING IS WHERE LIA, REMOVES EXTRA HAIR FROM A CLOSURE OR FRONTAL TO GIVE THE LACE A MORE REALISTIC HAIRLINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS INCLUDED WHEN PURCHASING A UNIT.
Closure vs. Frontal
WE RECOMMEND ALL NEW LACE WEARERS TO START WITH CLOSURES, BECAUSE CLOSURES REQUIRE LESS MAINTENANCE THAN FRONTALS. ITS RECOMMENDED TO WEAR A SILK/SATIN SCARF EVERY SINGLE NIGHT OR WHEN DOING ANY ACTIVITIES THAT COULD CAUSE YOU TO SWEAT OR GET YOUR HAIR WET IN ORDER TO PREVENT THE LACE FROM LIFTING.
Glued Vs. Glueless
WE RECOMMEND THE FOLLOWING ADHESIVES: BOLD HOLD, GHOST BOND, OR LACE GRIP. ALL ADHESIVE CAN BE SAFETY REMOVED WITH 91% ALCOHOL. GLUELESS UNITS WILL INCLUDE A BAND TO HOLD LACE DOWN FOR YOUR FOREHEAD.
