Frequently Asked Questions

  1. I never have tried a wig before, how can I start?

The best way to get started is to schedule a time to talk. Lesley Corey of Locks By Lesley is  available to speak with you, virtually or in person, at your convenience. No matter where you are  on your hair loss journey, Lesley will help you explore your best hairpiece options during your  one-to-one appointment. As an Alopecian herself, Lesley knows what it’s like living with hair  loss. She will be happy to answer any and all questions you may have, and to provide her own  personal advice for your unique situation.  

  1. Do you lose your edges while wearing a lace wig? And are they safe to wear if you want to grow out your hair?

Yes, lace front wigs are totally compatible with growing your bio hair. So long as you are careful  to put on and take off your hairpiece using the recommended methods, your hairline and overall hair  growth should not be impacted. 

  1. How long will a human hair lace wig last?

A human hair lace wig will typically last for years with proper care. Some wigs (including  FOLLEA) can be repaired as needed to add lost hair back into your wig. Keep in mind that if you  are wearing your hair all day, every day, the longevity can vary. Locks By Lesley can help you  maximize the longevity of the hairpiece you choose by providing information on how to best care  for that specific type of wig. She can also recommend professional stylists who have a wealth of  experience color refreshing, cutting and styling human hair wigs. 

  1. What is a lace front wig? What is the difference between a lace front wig and a full lace wig?

Lace front wigs feature a small, sheer panel of lace at the scalp, which helps to create an  undetectable front & side hairline. On a full lace wig, the cap is made entirely of lace, allowing  for the hair to be parted anywhere without it looking unnatural. 

  1. How long can I leave a lace wig on my head?

You can wear a lace wig for weeks (up to 4-6 weeks), depending on the type of adhesive you  use. For optimal comfort and to prevent damage to the hairpiece, many wig wearers choose to  take off their hairpiece at night and store it on a mannequin head wig stand while they sleep. 

  1. Why are the wigs so pricey?

Human hair wigs can be pricey because of the type of hair that is used. High-quality hair, such  as European hair, is key to ensure a realistic look and feel, versatile styling options and the  longevity of the hairpiece. 

  1. What’s the best glue for a lace wig? Is got2b glue the only glue for a lace wig?

There are many glue and tape products available to help you secure your hairpiece. The best  glues for a lace front wig include: Walker Ultra Hold adhesive, got2b Glued Blasting Freeze  spray and Bold Hold Extreme Cream adhesive or tape.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Swiss Lace, HD Lace, French Lace, or Korean Lace?

Swiss lace is a fine, superb lace for the front of the hairpiece, where a natural hairline is key. HD Lace is soft and provides the most natural appearance, but it is a more expensive option. French lace is durable but thick and can be more detectable than other options. Korean lace is able to hold far denser and longer hair, but this can come with concerns about  detectability. 

      Which type of lace does use for the wigs?  

The type of lace depends on the hairpiece chosen. Follea uses premium lace on all of their  hairpieces, while Jon Renau uses SmartLace on their hand-tied lace front wigs. 

        Do all the lace materials come in different shades?  

Wig lace comes in a variety of colors, including transparent, light brown, medium brown and  dark brown. 

      Do all of the wigs come with the option of transparent lace?  

Transparent lace is ideal for achieving a flawlessly natural appearance with your wig. Locks By  Lesley offers a wide range of wigs and hairpieces with transparent lace as an option. 

     Is the lace thin so it can be easily blended into your skin? Is the lace soft? 

Wig lace is designed to be soft, lightweight, hypoallergenic, non-irritating and blendable with  your natural hair and skin tone. 

  1. Are your wigs beginner-friendly?

Yes, all wigs offered by Locks By Lesley are beginner-friendly and made with high-quality hair. 

  1. How long does shipping take to my country?

In the United States, shipping is typically 2-day expedited via FedEx. 

  1. Do you have to go to a professional to install the wig or can it be put on and go?

The wigs offered by Locks By Lesley are wigs that you can put on and go. Once you know how  to put on your wig properly, there’s no need for professional assistance. 

  1. Can a glueless wig be glued down? And What is the best method to “glue” down the wig and make it look natural?

To glue a wig down, the cap must have the ability to adhere to the glue. If your lace front wig is  compatible with glue, you can apply an adhesive to the edges for a secure, natural looking  result. If you are completely bald, you may consider using a roll-on glue product on your scalp to  achieve the most dependable hold. 

  1. Could I wear these wigs up in a ponytail? Do I need to use glue or something if I want to put the wig in a ponytail?

You can wear these wigs in a ponytail, with or without glue. Tip: Cutting in baby hairs at the  hairline will help to ensure a natural look when wearing your hairpiece up. 

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can women with sensitive skin also wear a lace front wig?

Absolutely. There are plenty of hair replacement options available for those with sensitive skin,  including hairpieces that do not necessitate the use of tape or glue (such as the FOLLEA  Gripper). 

  1. What are some common mistakes that could ruin a lace wig?

Some common mistakes that can ruin a lace wig include incorrect sizing, cutting too much of the  front lace, and using too much product or glue. Improper washing or coloring techniques can  also damage a lace wig. 

  1. How often should I wash the wig? And how can I wash a wig to make it last the longest?

You do not need to wash your wig every day. If you wear your wig every day, washing once a  week should be sufficient. (But, if you are sweating heavily, you may find that you need to wash  your wig slightly more often than once per week). Using a small amount of salon-quality  shampoo and conditioner is important to make your wig last. 

17.  And what shampoo and conditioner would you recommend when washing a lace front wig?

I recommend using the Neora ProLuxe shampoo, conditioner and hair mask, all of which are safe for use on human hair wigs as well as bio hair.   

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Does it get hot under a wig?

Wigs that are lace front and/or hand tied are comfortable and allow for breathability. Many  hairpieces feature special cap construction designed to provide excellent ventilation and a  lightweight feel. 

  1. Is it bad to leave out your own real baby hairs instead of creating them from your wig?

You can certainly blend your own hair with a wig for a natural look. Baby hairs do not need to be  cut in if you prefer to use your own hair to develop a natural hair line. 

  1. Can human hair wigs be dyed?

Yes, human hair wigs can be colored and even highlighted to create your own personalized  style!
