Frequently Ask Questions


The lifespan of your new wig or hairpiece depends on several factors, including the type of hair (synthetic or human hair), the quality of the wig, how often you wear it, and how well you care for it.

For Synthetic Wigs: Typically last about 4 to 6 months with regular wear and proper care. High-quality synthetic wigs might last a bit longer.

For Human Hair Wigs: Generally last longer than synthetic wigs, often around 1 to 3 years with regular wear and proper maintenance. High-quality human hair wigs can last even longer.


To make your wig or hairpiece last as long as possible, follow these care and maintenance tips:

1. Wash your wig regularly, but not too often. Use mild, wig-specific shampoos and conditioners. For synthetic wigs, wash every 6-8 wears; for human hair wigs, every 7-14 wears.

2. Handle your wig with care. Avoid tugging or pulling, and be gentle when brushing to prevent damage. Use a wide-tooth comb or a wig brush designed for your wig type.

3. Store your wig on a wig stand or mannequin head to maintain its shape and prevent tangling. Keep it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and dust.

4. Avoid Heat. For synthetic wigs, avoid exposure to heat from styling tools or hot environments, as this can damage the fibers. Use heat-protectant sprays and low-heat settings for human hair wigs if heat styling is necessary.

5. Minimize friction by avoiding excessive rubbing against clothing or pillowcases. Consider using a silk or satin pillowcase and wearing a wig cap underneath.

6. Perform regular maintenance, such as detangling and conditioning. For human hair wigs, deep conditioning treatments can help maintain moisture and softness.

7. Avoid harsh chemicals and products not designed for wigs, such as hair sprays, gels, or dyes, unless specified as safe for your wig type.

8. Consider professional cleaning and styling services, especially for human hair wigs, to ensure proper care and longevity.

When hair starts falling out, do I need to get a new hair system?

Hair systems do not last forever because the hair does not have our natural oils to protect it.

I can have hair added to your current hair system, but I don’t recommend it. By the time your hair system has thinned noticeably, the hair is already drying out as well. In addition, the base may have begun to fray. By the time you pay for repairs and shipping, it really makes more sense to order a new unit. But if you just can’t bear to part with a favourite hair system, I can have hair added for a charge of £80.00 + shipping.

Yes, the lace or silk injected top of your wig or hairpiece can be matched to your skin colour. Here’s how the process typically works:

1. During your consultation or fitting, the wig specialist will compare the lace or silk top to your skin tone. They may use colour swatches or a colour chart to find the closest match.

2. If an exact match isn’t available, the lace or silk top can often be custom tinted to better match your skin colour. This involves carefully dyeing the material to blend seamlessly with your complexion.

3. Makeup products, such as foundation or concealer, can be used to further blend the lace or silk with your skin, ensuring a natural look. Wig experts can provide tips on how to do this effectively.

4. Some wig suppliers offer pre-tinted lace or silk tops in a range of skin tones, which can save time and ensure a good match right from the start.

What do I do with that strip of bare lace at the front hairline with my new hair system?

All new lace systems have a strip of bare lace at the front that needs to be trimmed away.

It is easy to trim that excess lace with a pair of sharp scissors, BUT – be sure to leave 1/8″ – 1/4″ strip of bare lace ahead of the actual hairline. Why? Having the bare lace in front means that if the lace starts to fray a bit, you will not lose hair at the hairline. When it is attached, that small strip of lace disappears against your skin.

Do you offer full wigs for men and women?

Yes, and they are fabulous products too!

However if you have some remaining hair, especially around the back, I still recommend a hair system over a wig (or “full cap”) if at all possible. If your hair loss is extreme or patchy, I’d be glad to provide you with a full wig.
