Q: What is a Lace Front Wig and Full Lace Wig?
A: Lace Front Wigs are wigs that only have lace in the front of the wig and the remainder of the wig is made from a regular netted wig cap or other similar materials. The lace in the front blends in with your skin to create the illusion that the hair is growing from your own scalp and thus a natural looking hairline. Most lace wigs have adjustable straps and wig combs to ensure that the wigs fit your head securely. These wigs can therefore be parted anywhere in the front and can be pulled back into a low ponytail.
Full Lace Wigs are Lace wigs which are designed with the entire wig cap being made from lace as well as lace all around the perimeter of the wig. Full lace wigs allow you to wear your hair in high up dos and ponytails. Upon applying & adhering the lace wig, a flawless, natural and undetectable hairline is created

A: Futura refers to the type of material from which the hair is made. Futura is the highest quality synthetic fibre that looks completely natural and is heat resistant up to 400F.

Once you wash your wig the style returns to its natural condition and you can then style it again as you like. Futura is both affordable and more manaegeable than most human hair fibres. It can however not be coloured or permed.
