FAQs

What is a lace wig?
Individual stands of hair are hand knotted onto a lace cap base. This technique makes a wig look very natural, allows hair to be parted, worn up and appears to be growing from the scalp. There are many variations of lace wigs (full, lace fronts, frontals and closures etc.) see the individual listings for more specific details.
