Machine Made Wig: For individuals who are new to wigs, or possibly allergic to or simply not fond of wig glues and or wig tapes. These non-lace machines made wigs require no tapes or wig glues to wear. Unlike the comparable glue-less full lace wigs, machine-made wigs as indicated are made by sewing wefts a few centimetres apart from each other on the new and improved elasticated wig cap, which also has combs and an adjustable strap at the nape for a secure fit.
Full Lace Wig: is constructed from lace cap that covers the whole head and the hair is knotted into the lace by hand. On standard Remy lace wigs, there is a strip of stretch-lace over the top of the crown to allow for movement such as hair growth underneath and for variations in head size.
Lace Front Wig: have a lace panel in the front of the wig, attached to a cap made a different way (basic, monofilament, or hand-tied). Typically, lace front wigs have a lace panel that sticks out beyond the hairline of the wig. The panel needs to be cut (preferably by a stylist or cosmetologist who knows how to do it) This is what helps create the look of a natural hairline.
What Cap Size Do I Need
1. Forehead to Nape
Start the tape from the center of the front of your hairline to the hairline at the nape of the neck. If you have little or no hair, lay your index, third, and ring finger flat against your forehead just about at the brow bone. At the top of the three fingers would be a good straight point. Measure until about an inch below the small bone at the bottom of the skull.
2. Ear to Ear
Lay the end of the tape about a half inch above your little crease (where glasses rest) at the top of your ear between the ear and the head. Bring the tape across the top of your head to meet the other ear, without touching the ear, at the same point.
Start the tape at your hairline at the center of your forehead. Run the tape around, behind the ears, passing your hairline at the nape of the neck, and back up to the middle of your forehead.
4. Temple to Temple
Start at your temple, and bring tape measure around the back of your head to reach the other temple.
It is important to choose a style before you choose a color because each wig will only come in a selection of colors from the full-color range. Many women worry that if they don’t start with color, they won’t find the right color. Do not worry. Each wig can be custom colored. If you would like to match your style to your existing hair, detailed length measurements please contact and send us a picture to custom make.
Many cancer patients come to us because we only source and make 100% human hair wig. Human hair wigs offer the same styling versatility of real hair. This feature is both the pro and the con of a human hair wig. Because human hair wigs are made of real hair, they require much more maintenance, styling, and upkeep. Without the natural oils from your scalp to condition the wig, they can get dry and brittle without proper maintenance. Just like your own hair, they will lose their style in the rain or humidity and must be restyled. They are also much more expensive than synthetic wigs.
