Hair Shedding?

Dear friend, all hair gets shedding; it’s just the difference of more or less, even our own hair sheds, right?

Hair Styling

All custom lace front wigs come shaped to the style of your chosen photograph. Your stylist should refine the cut of the lace front wig to frame your face, something that cannot be done remotely as ever face shape differs.

How is lace front cap applied?

The lace front cap is applied with either special adhesive that is safe for human skin, or tape. The adhesive disappears into the lace front and creates the illusion of hair growing directly out of the scalp.

What is Monofilament?

Monofilament material is a thin gauze-like, nearly transparent material which is much more comfortable to the touch. Hair strands are attached by hand-knotting them to this material,
one strand at a time, hence the term “mono-filament”. This allows the strands to swivel freely on base and so the monofilament wig is more easily styled. This weaving technique also creates ventilation. Your monofilament wig will breathe while worn, and this prevents heat and moisture buildup. The monofilament fabric itself is nearly transparent, and so takes on the approximate color of your own natural scalp, whatever shade that is. This amazing”chameleon” effect is another plus to the monofilament wig design. It has been said that a monofilament part is the most natural looking part in the wig industry, because it bares the natural scalp color of the wearer.

What is Monofilament Wigs?

Mono wigs are tied by hand. Mono wigs are based on a fine mesh of monofilament material and are very light and ideal for hot climates. The mono mesh is so thin it allows the colour of the scalp to shine through, and it also sits extremely flat.

Mono Parting wigs use the mono only in the parting area, which keeps the cost down. This gives a fringless style and a completely natural look.

Mono Top wigs have the top and crown only in mono, ideal for styles with less bulk. It is also a very natural look.

Fully Hand Tied have full mono and have the best attributes of the first two styles, but are also more expensive.

What is a hair weft?

A hair weft looks like a little curtain of hair attached together at the top and free flowing at the bottom. Wefts can be made by machine, but the best wefts are handmade.

How Is the Hair Weft Applied?

Hair Wefts are attached to your head by sewing them to a tiny braid made out of your own hair. The track (known to hairdressers as a corn-row) runs horizontally around the back of your head. The tracks are done in the middle of your scalp underneath your hairline so you can’t see them.
The crown area of your own hair covers the top track making the extensions seem invisible. The number and size of tracks matches the number and size of wefts. The wefts and tracks ideally should be made in different sizes in order to match exactly the way your hair would look if you had grown it that way yourself.
Depending upon how much hair you need depends on how many tracks you have. For example: If I had hair to my chin and I wanted hair to my bra line (about 18″ long) I might need 5 or 6 tracks/wefts depending upon my current haircut. If I had hair to my shoulders that was thin and stringy and I wanted it thicker and more luscious but the same length I might need 2 or 3 (or more) tracks/wefts.
Once the tracks are done, the wefts are sewn to them and then your own crown area hair is blended with and combed over the extensions. From now on you have to think of the extensions as YOUR HAIR.

How Do I Look After Them?

You look after Hair Extensions the same as you would do long hair that you grew yourself. If you have never been able to grow your hair long before it is probably because you are killing it just as quickly as it grows. Here’s a few tips:

  • Wash, condition and MOISTURIZE your hair every 2 – 3 days. The extensions do not receive your natural scalp oils and so need to have moisture added every wash. If you don’t moisturize your hair extensions they will become brittle and break easily leading to split and ratty ends.
  • Treat them with respect. They will not grow back if you yank at them with a brush, burn them with the blow dryer, kill them with chemicals. Be nice to them – they cost a lot of money so make sure you get your money’s worth.
  • Always brush out all knots before you wash your hair, swim, or sleep. Start at the bottom and work your way up slowly using a paddle brush.
  • Make sure you wash in between the braids to keep your scalp clean and free of bacteria.

Can I wear my hair up?

Sure, the Extensions should not be applied any lower than the base of your scalp (about even with the middle of your ears) and so your hair under this point covers the extensions while you wear it in pigtails, ponytails, french twists, french braids etc.

What is Skin Weft Extension?

Skin Weft Extensions is completely natural looking and undetectable. Even if someone were to run their fingers through your hair, it is unlikely that they would really feel or see the addition. The hair looks like it’s growing from your scalp. The mono skin weft extension is hand knotted hair attached to very thin mono-skin base. It is applied along your hair line next to your skin. It is seamless, without bumps, braids, sewing, velcro, beads, metal tubes, glue, clips, nor chemicals and is completely invisible. Hair is reusable. It is also very easy and fast to apply. Can be applied with skin weft tape, purchased separately.

What about Hair Knotting Techniques?

Different hair knotting techniques are used to knot hair into the base, providing different performance and results. The quality of the wigmakers workmanship will have a great impact on the finished look.
Single hair, single knots are considered the best method of knotting producing a tiny knot for each individual hand-tied hair. Two or three individual hairs can be single knotted at one time speeding up the process to the detrimental of creating a larger knot with less aesthetically pleasing finish.
Double knots literally involve knotting hair twice to produce a double knot which provides a stronger, more robust knot. The resultant knots are however even more visible under close inspection. This is a particular problem when trying to create a natural hairline and for this reason most front hair lines should be single hair, single knotted on a flesh tone lace material.
The term hair injection refers to the method of inserting a series of hairs through a layer of polyurethane before coating the underside of the base with a single layer of liquid form polyurethane. Upon setting (or curing) the inserted hairs remain trapped between the two transparent layers.
Hair injection is a relatively new method of hair attachment, becoming increasingly popular due to its natural appearance, free of knots.

What is a Lace Front Wig?

A lace front is a wig that’s hairline is constructed of lace material. This material is made out of French Lace or Swiss Lace and is virtually undetectable to the naked eye when placed against the skin. The hair is knotted into the lace and appears to grow from the scalp offering an natural appearance. Only a lace front wig can be trusted to maintain the illusion of growing hair and it’s the preferred choice of celebrities, actors, and people in media. For more information on what is a lace wigs:
French Lace

French lace is a strong material used at the front edge of a hairpiece in combination with bleached knots to give and extremely undetectable look. The knots are not hidden by lace, but using lighter knots creates the illusion of growing hair. French lace is less fragile than Swiss lace and with care could last a long time.

Swiss Lace

Swiss Lace is more fragile than French lace but strong enough if handled carefully. It is the most undetectable but also very delicate. Swiss lace needs to be handed with care and is not recommended for first time users to lace front wigs.
Ear To Ear Stretch

Ear to Ear Stretch is a French lace with an elastic material constructed within the unit for maximum durability and elasticity. This will allow a client to pull back the hair in a high ponytail while offering a adjustable “perfect” fit.

Thin Skin at the Nape

Thins Skin Nape is a very thin, clear coat of polyurethane over a clear silk base that allows for easy application and removal. This will allow a client a secure fit on the back of the head and scalp without the application of glue. It still appears extremely natural and is very flexible.

Which Cap Style Do I Choose?

The most important questions is will you want to wear your wig in an updo or ponytail? If so you will want to choose a Full lace cap style. There are many different style caps – the most common are the full lace cap with ear to ear stretch, the full lace cap with no stretch, front lace only cap meaning lace in the front only, full lace cap with thin skin in front and lace around entire perimeter of head.

How to Choose the wigs

It may seem like a somewhat overwhelming task to choose the right wig, but it doesn’t have to be.

There are some guidelines that may prove helpful when choosing wigs online. There are three main things that you must ascertain before ordering wigs online; your face shape, the color you wish to order and what size wig to order. Once you have these three things determined, place your order and sit back and wait for your new look to be delivered to the door.

Face Shapes:

1. Oval: The face is longer than it is wide; the cheekbones are wider than the jaw. The oval face is proportional and is not considered to have a dominant area. Therefore, oval shaped faces in general look well with most hairstyles, textures and lengths.

2. Oblong: The shape is distinguished by long, narrow bone structure. To add softness and give the impression of Oval, use half-bangs or a fringe across the forehead area, curls at the nape of the neck and at the crown.

3. Heart: Easily stands out with wide forehead and narrower chin. To balance out this shape face, make sure some hair falls onto the forehead area to hide its width, wear hair full around the jaw and in front of the ears, wear close to the head near the eyes. This adds volume around the chin to offset the wide forehead.

4. Triangle: The opposite of heart shaped with wide chin and narrow forehead. Wear curly styles or shaped layers with tapered side and back to soften the edges.

5. Round: Characterized by fullness below the cheekbones and a wide hairline. Look good with linear or geometric styles that serve to “break up” the round look. When possible, add height, avoid width.

6. Square: Wide jaw and hairline; need waves or height on top and narrow at the sides. Add height by combing hair off the forehead; wisps, waves and curls around the face eliminate the straight lines and soften the characteristics of the square shaped face.

7. Diamond: Narrow chin and forehead with wide cheekbones. Best style for this face shape is a bob with narrow sides and volume at the chin. Do not style with volume at the sides or top height. Bangs or a fringe will cover the narrow forehead.

Next, peruse the online color charts or request sample hair color from Fsnwigs factory to ascertain the right color for you. Or, we cut a small sample of your hair and they can match for you. Remember, if you are going for an all out change, it is better to go lighter than darker.

Last, determine what your head size is .Although Fsnwigs are elasticized for perfect fit, you must measure the circumference of your head. Measure for circumference with a cloth tape: from the front hairline and around just above the ear to the base of the skull and back to point of origin. Match you result to petite, average or large size to order your wigs.
