6 EASY STEPS TO ORDERING A CUSTOM LACE WIG !
STEP 1: TAKE YOUR HEAD MEASURMENTS
For the most accurate results secure your hair in the manner it will be under your wig.
Typically most women either braid their hair straight back in cornrow, or wrap it flatly. Be sure to take your measurements a few times for accuracy. Use a fabric measuring tape for the best results.
Use our stock wig measurements as a guide if you are unsure of the accuracy.

STEP 2 : CHOOSE A LACE COLOR
How to Choose your Lace Color
The correct process to choose your lace color for a custom wig is to match the lace to your scalp complexion not your skin color. Please follow the examples below for a guideline for choosing your lace color.
Transparent: For White, Off White,or Cream scalp tones similar to Jessica Simpson
Light : For Light Beige or Beige scalp tones similar to Ciara or JLO
Light Brown: For Light Brown scalp tones similar to Beyonce
Brown: For Dark Brown scalp tones similar to Oprah.
STEP 3 : CHOOSE THE DENSITY
While customizing your full lace or lace front wig it is very important to choose the right density to allow for the most natural look.
Hair density refers to how thick the hair is. The hair density that you order is really based on personal choice and what looks best on you. Most women achieve a natural appearance with light to medium or medium density; however, your choice will depend on your styling preferences and individual profile.
Light Density: This density is 60% thickness of an average head of hair. It is recommended for people whose natural hair does not have much volume or thickness. Light density on a lace front or full lace wig shows a fair amount of scalp. This density is popular with elderly women. This is a good choice for African American Texture wigs because the hair is thicker with that texture.
* Light to Medium: This density is 100% thickness of an average head of hair. This is the most popular density requested for custom lace front and full lace wigs. It means that the lace front or full lace wig will have light density at the hairline and medium density every where else. This density is suitable for most women.
We recommend this texture for most wigs.
Heavy: This density is 150% thickness of an average head of hair. This density is usually worn by performers in theatre, and it is not recommended for a person looking for a natural look in a lace front or full lace wig.
STEP 4 : CHOOSE LACE TYPE
French Lace *recommended option
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. French lace is less fragile and typically offers the most long lasting lace wig.
Swiss Lace is more fragile than French lace which affords a slightly more undetectable appearance. However, it is very delicate and needs to be handed with care.

STEP 6- CHOOSE CAP CONSTRUCTION
The most important factor in deciding your cap construction is whether you plan to wear your wig in an updo or ponytail? If so you will want to choose a Full lace cap style. If not, you may opt for a lace front wig.
Cap Constructions Available:
Full lace -No stretch panel.- Best option for most natural appearance. Hair can be parted anywhere for a flawless hairline. Best option for ladies with no hair.
Full Lace without stretch-An option for a woman planning on growing her hair underneath. This cap allows for a wig to be worn while hair is growing back because it can expand as the hair thickens.
Lace Front Wig with stretch material at back of head- This cap is for a woman who doesn’t plan on wearing her hair up in a ponytail. Some ladies prefer to focus on the hairline and would rather have the back sewn down onto a braid.
