Human Hair

Human Hair Supply

Hair SupplyNaturally, all Lace Wigs and Hairpieces are created with hair and there are two kinds of hair that are commonly used: synthetic hair and human hair. There are also two ways hair may be applied of configured to create a Lace Wig or Hairpiece. One way is using bulk hair; the other is using Weft hair.

Bulk hair is loose strands of hair that are applied by tying them to a foundation or base using a Ventilating Tool.

Weft hair is hair that is sewn together at one end when synthetic; or at the root end when human hair.

To make most Lace Wigs or Hairpieces requires approximately 1 or moreounces of Weft hair. The length of the hair will ultimately dictate how many ounces of hair that will be necessary for creating this Hairpiece.

With this Hairpiece the hair volume may be controlled by attaching 1 or more Weft strips to each comb. When adding more then one Weft strip to each comb; first pin Weft strips together; and then sew them into one strip before attaching hair to comb.

In order for a perfect hair-color match; a hair sample must be sent along when ordering your hair supply.
