What is a 13 x 4 Lace Frontal wig?
A 13 x 4 lace frontal wig is Wig with a natural looking hair line from ear to ear mimicking hair coming from your scalp. Each hair has been knotted into the lace to give the most natural look. You can part the frontal anywhere you like without seeing any give aways! This means you can wear it half up or some pinned back. it has a realistic part backwards of 4" deep which means from the front of the hairline directly backwards giving a realistic appearance. The back of the wig is built on a comfortable stretchy cap that has rows of hair sewn on to create the length and thickness you desire. Lace frontal wigs are usually best glued/ sprayed down with "got2beglued" hair spray. Lace front wigs are a bit more advanced to fit at home because of this.
What is a 4 x 4 or 6 x 6 closure wig?
Closure wigs are easier to fit as there is more wig cap and less lace which means it grips your head better. They don't need spraying down. I offer 4" x 4" if you only want one parting. If you want the flexibility of changing up the parting but dont want to worry about spraying or glueing the front down we would advise a 6" x 6" closure style wig. You can still wear this wig in a low ponytail.

Even the smallest of changed could make a difference to the overall build time and cost.
Wearing your unit
Adjustments to length and thickness
When you receive your unit you must check to make sure it fits well cutting the lace. Once the lace is cut its strictly non returnable. It is like removing a price tag or a hygiene strip. Your wig can always go shorter and more layered if you find its too long and thick. Please don't rush into this as once its gone its gone and would be costly to replace rows of hair on your unit if you regret it. The more layers your wig has the thinner it will feel. Please only have it cut by someone who is experienced - not just a hairdresser but an experienced wig cutter. It is NOT the same as natural hair and we will not be help responsible if you do choose to have it cut shorter or more layered by anyone else but ourselves. Please get in touch if you want the length or cut altering and we will be happy to help. The first adaption is free of charge but anything after that will be chargeable.
What do i do when i get my wig?
You must not cut off the lace until you have tried the wig on and ensured it fits correctly. Once you are happy you can then proceed to cut the lace off carefully. The Lace will be left on the unit for you to remove to show it is a brand new unit made for you. Please click here for an instructional video of how to cut off the lace.
How often can i wear my wig/ How long will it last?
You can wear it as often as you like. We don't reccomend sleeping in it and if you do its at your own risk. It could damage the knots on the frontal and cause them to shed and cause it to knot. The less you wear it the longer it will last which is standard for any kind of hair extensions. The more frequently you wear it and use heated tools the quicker the hair will age. The hair we used is highest quality human remy hair so will have an average 9-12 months life span if cared for correctly.

Can i change the colour my wig?
We don't advise colouring your wig. We have coloured your unit to your exact requirements. Altering the colour is at your own risk and we can not be help responsible for any damage caused to the unit due to further colouring. If you need your wig colour topping up please get in touch for a quote.
Can i wear it in a pony tail?
You can wear your unit in a low pony tail. You will not be able to do a high pony without exposing the wig underneath. You will be able to do a 1/2 up style as it is with a lace frontal but if you choose a closure wig a 1/2 up wont be possible. We will be launching full lace wigs soon so you will be able to wear these units in a high pony!

How does it stay on?
The unit will be secured using the adjustable band method. You will then have the option of clips and combs (for attaching to natural hair) or silicone strips (so you can attach to your scalp).
Can i apply heat to my unit to re style?
Absolutely! Just bare in mind its real hair. The more heat you use the more you can damage those ends. Excessive heat can also discolour the hair so please be careful. The wigs should hold their style for a few days so try not to over do the heat. We will not be held responsible for damage due to excessive heat.
Can i sew my wig onto braids?
You can but at your own risk! But please be aware we don't advise sleeping in the unit due to potential damage. If you do have it sewn on its at your own risk so please be careful.
Can i glue it on?
Yes you can! If you plan on whipping that unit round all night then you can glue it down for extra safety. We will link a tutorial on how to do this soon.
Can i wear it glueless?
YES for our closure wigs. Our closure wigs are designed to be glueless thanks to the adjustable band but frontals do usually need to be sprayed down.
How do i tape my wig on?
If you need to tape your wig to your scalp then you can have silicone pads added inside the unit ready for the wig tape to be applied. We will up uploading a tutorial on how to do this soon.
What do i do if i have natural hair to hide underneath?
You can braid your natural hair so it is flat and under control to conceal under the wig. You will be provided with a wig cap to help keep your natural hair at bay.

Reasons Your Unit could be shedding/ balding and how to keep this to a minimum.
- Combing with a narrow tooth comb or a hard bristle brush whilst wet - this could snag the hair knots and stitching.
- being rough whilst brushing and styling - this could damage the stitching and pull out fragile knots
- avoid greasy products are the route area of the wig - this could effect the longevity of the knots
- brush from tip to root (bottom to top) never top to bottom - brushing from top to bottom will be too harsh.
- scrubbing the hair together in the sink or shower when washing - this can knot the hair and cause damage to the lace
- avoid scratching scalp through unit - it can damage the knots and stitching.
- avoid lots of hairspray and styling products - this will mean you will have to wash your unit more frequently
