Please read the following entirely. This read may answer your questions or help you better understand wigs and wig buying. This section is if you are brand new to wig wearing and could use additional education prior to making a purchase with Studio408
CHOOSING YOUR WIG
This unit is constructed with 5x5 Swiss HD Lace closure. 5x5 means the closure will have 5 inches of parting space starting from your forehead back towards your nape, and will measure 5 inches across your forehead. This protective style allows you to reframe from leaving your natural hair out. These units can be worn glueless, are very simple to maintain and beginner friendly.
This unit is constructed with 13x4 Swiss HD Lace frontal that expands from ear to ear. 13*4 means that the frontal will measure 13 inches across your front, covering your entire hairline and leaving extra lace that will need to be cut off. Measuring from front to nape, you will be provided 4 inches of parting. Frontals are more versatile, giving an appearance of a natural hairline and more parting space.
MEASUREMENTS AND STYLING
IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO KNOW YOUR HEAD MEASUREMENTS WHEN GETTING A WIG WHETHER YOU ARE PURCHASING A FACTORY MADE UNIT OR CUSTOMIZING YOUR OWN!
PRIOR TO PLACING AN ORDER PLEASE KNOW OR MEASURE THE SIZE OF YOUR HEAD IN ORDER TO ENSURE A PERFECT FIT. THE AVERAGE CIRCUMFERENCES MEASURE 21",22", OR 23".
HOW TO MEASURE
- CIRCUMFERENCE OF YOUR HEAD
- FROM HAIRLINE (FRONT) TO NAPE (BACK) OF NECK.
- FROM EAR TO EAR ACROSS THE NAPE OF THE NECK.
- *HAIRLINE FROM SIDE BURN/EDGES TO SIDE BURN/EDGES ACROSS FOREHEAD. (REQUIRED FOR FRONTALS.)*
USE OF BLEACH POWDER AND DEVELOPER TO BLEACH THE KNOTS ON A CLOSURE OR FRONTAL TO GET RID OF ALL OF THE BLACK DOTS ON THE LACE TO MAKE IT APPEAR MORE NATURAL. THIS IS INCLUDED WHEN PURCHASING A UNIT WITH US. THIS PROCESS IS USED TO MAKE YOUR LACE LOOK LIKE SCALP, GIVING YOU A MORE NATURAL LOOK.
REMOVING EXTRA HAIR FROM A CLOSURE OR FRONTAL, REMOVING THE "BULKINESS" TO GIVE THE LACE A MORE REALISTIC HAIRLINE. THIS SERVICE IS INCLUDED WHEN PURCHASING A UNIT FROM Studio408.
CLOSURE VS. FRONTAL
IF YOU ARE NEW TO WIGS AND LACE WE RECOMMEND YOU START WITH CLOSURES. CLOSURES REQUIRE LESS MAINTENANCE THAN FRONTALS. CLOSURES USUALLY MEASURE 4X4, 5X5, OR 6X6 GIVING YOU LESS LACE TO WORK WITH. WITH THE RIGHT INSTALL AND OR STYLIST, YOU CAN ACHIEVE A FRONTAL LOOK WITH A CLOSURE. IF YOU ARE A PRO, HAVE A PRO STYLIST, OR JUST WANT FULL COVERAGE ON YOUR HAIRLINE, FRONTALS ARE FOR YOU! FRONTALS USUALLY MEASURE 13X4 OR 13X6 GIVING YOU MORE LACE TO WORK WITH.
ADHESIVE VS NON ADHESIVE:
WE RECOMMEND THE FOLLOWING ADHESIVES: BOLD HOLD OR HOLD ME DOWN LACE ADHESIVE By Ericka J.
ALL ADHESIVE CAN BE SAFELY REMOVED WITH OILS, CONDITIONER, OR GLUE REMOVER
NON ADHESIVE UNITS ARE CONSIDERED GLUELESS AND WILL INCLUDE AN ADJUSTABLE BAND AND COMB AT THE NAPE TO ENSURE A SECURE FIT.
HANDMADE VS FACTORY MADE
HANDMADE UNITS ARE SEWN ONTO THE WIG CAP BY HAND USING A SEWING MACHINE. WHEN UNITS ARE MACHINE MADE, TRACKS ARE CUT THROUGHOUT THE WIG. FACTORY MADE UNITS ARE MACHINE MADE UNITS MADE BY OUR VENDOR AND ARE NOT AS CUSTOMIZABLE.
NOW THAT YOU HAVE ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WIG BUYING, LETS FIND THE PERFECT ONE FOR YOU!
