1. I never have tried a wig before, how can I start?
It helps to have a good idea of what you want a wig to do for you. Do you want to wear wigs to change your look? Do you have hair loss or damage you want to cover without changing your natural hairs’ texture or color?
If you want a wig to change your look, decide which kind of hairstyles you want and find out which kind of hairstyle suits you better.
If you have hair loss or damage, start from getting the texture, color, style and length you would have if you were able to grow an adequate amount of hair on your head.
No matter the reason you want a wig, choose a wig shop with good reviews and ask a trusted friend or family to give you honest feedback.
And here are another few tips for you to get started:
(1) Start with wearing a hat that matches your outfit if you cannot perfectly manage your hairline.
(2) Wear your wig at home for the first few days until you’re used to it.
(3) Boosting your self-confidence is key! If you look good, and your family members and best friends feel you look good, then flaunt it.
(4) Get your wig styled by your usual hairdresser. Got to them often, like once every three months, to make sure your wig keeps its style.
(5) Carefully wash and store your wig. Keep it on a head when not in use.
(6) Change your wig at least once a year.
2. Do you lose your edges while wearing a lace wig? And are they safe to wear if you want to grow out your hair?
We wear wigs in order to look best and be attractive -- not because we want to lose our edges. Here are some tips to help to rock a stunning lace wig while maintaining the hair underneath. Please read the detailed information here: https://www.evawigs.com/blog/how-to-avoid-losing-your-edges-while-wearing-a-lace-wig.html
(1) Be sure to glue the wig in the right position.
Carefully trim the lace back so it lines up with your hairline. Not too far, or you will irritate your scalp, nor too close, or you risk applying glue to your natural hair.
(2) Choose the proper glue when securing your lace front.
Choose the right glue to suit different needs. For example, if you prefer to take off your wig every day, Got2B will not be a bad choice.
(3) Test your skin for sensitivity before applying glue.
(4) Disinfect the inside of the wig with alcohol.
(5) Remove the wig correctly.
Remove the wig gently by warm water or glue remover instead of ripping it off.
(6) Wear a glueless wig.
If you want to grow out your hair, we recommend:
(1) Take off your wig every night to give your natural hair some fresh air, especially on hot and humid summer days.
(2) Wash and condition both your wig and natural hair often to keep your scalp, your natural hair and your wig clean.
(3) And make sure that your natural hair is totally dry before putting on your wig, or you will feel itchy while wearing the wig all day long.
3. How long will a human hair lace wig last?
The wig itself can last 6 months to a year with proper care and storage.
Actually, some people buy wigs once a month or every two months because they prefer to change hairstyles often. Meanwhile, others prefer to buy wigs about once or twice a year, and they only buy new wigs when the old ones are no longer in good condition. These people should pay more attention to how to care for your wigs.
To help the wig last longer, here are 10 tips for how to wash, care for, and store human hair wigs.
And pay more attention to the common mistakes that could ruin a lace wig.
4. What is a lace front wig? What is the difference between a lace front wig and a full lace wig？
Lace front wigs have a lace mesh at the front of the wig cap to give it a more natural and subtle look. These types of wigs can be worn in multiple styles, including keeping the hair away from the face, because if applied properly, the hairline is almost invisible and the scalp can be seen through the mesh.
Full lace wigs have a fully covered, 360-degree lace-base from the hairline to the nape of the neck which covers the whole head. It is a very versatile wig that can be worn in multiple styles.
The difference is obvious now: A full lace wig has more wear options, and the wig cap is softer and more comfortable, as it is totally made with lace and thus more breathable.
Here we have a detailed article describing the differences among full lace wigs, lace front wigs, and 360 lace wigs.
5. How long can I leave a lace wig on my head?
We have surveyed how long our customers normally keep their wigs on.
And according to their feedback, most people wear wigs for work. Half of them only wear wigs when they’re working and take them off when they get home, so the average wearing time is about 10 hours a day. And they only lightly glue down the wig or don’t use glue at all.
Another half of our customers glue down their wigs and leave them on for around a week, and then take them off, wash and care both natural hair and wigs, and then put the wigs back on for another week.
Here we have some suggestions:
a. If you’re wearing the wig as a protective style, take it off every night.
b. If you’re suffering from hair loss, ask your doctor before committing to glue or tape.
c. It isn’t recommended to keep the wigs on exceeding one week, as you also need to wash and care for your natural hair.
6. Why are the wigs so pricy?
The prices are basically based on hair material, hair density (the amount of the hair used to make the wig), hair length, and cap construction type.
Human hair will become more and more pricy because of the lack of hair material. Nowadays, more and more people choose to wear wigs for many reasons, but fewer people prefer to grow their hair long. So the more hair needed and greater the length, the pricier the wig.
The wigs with a full lace cap, also known as hand-tied wigs, are the most expensive, as they need a lot of handworks.

7. What’s the best glue for a lace wig? Is got2b glue the only glue for a lace wig?
Got2b is NOT the only glue for lace wigs. There are other glues such as Esha, Bold Hold, Ghost Bond, and more.
Do some research to choose the best-fitting glue for yourself for different occasions, as different glue types have different uses. For example, if you need to do a lot of exercises, then the Got2b spray will not be adhesive enough.
We introduced 5 different wig types of glue in the second paragraph of this article https://www.evawigs.com/blog/how-to-avoid-losing-your-edges-while-wearing-a-lace-wig.html
8. Swiss Lace, HD Lace, French Lace or Korean Lace? Which type of lace does EvaWigs.com use for the wigs? Do all the lace materials come in different shades? Do all of the wigs come with the option of transparent lace? Is the lace thin so it can be easily blended into your skin? Is the lace soft?
Swiss lace is a thinner, more delicate and completely see-through lace, it was originally used to make lace for royalty. It is a more invisible lace, so if you want a very natural hairline, choose Swiss lace.
EvaWigs.com uses Swiss lace as HD lace.
French lace is slightly thicker than Swiss lace, but more durable.
Korean lace is the most commonly used lace, it is a copy-cat of French lace. Being that it is much more durable than French lace, so it is a great choice for active lace wig wearers.
At EvaWigs.com, only Korean lace comes in different shades, and the Swiss lace (HD lace) only has one color which is transparent, however, it’s a kind of beige, not as pale as transparent Korean lace.
Both of the two types of laces (Swiss lace and Korean lace) EvaWigs.com use are soft and thin, and Swiss lace is comparatively thinner and can blend into your skin easier.
9. Are your wigs beginner friendly?
Said @shouston303, “For us beginners, shake, apply and go is best!!!”
But what kind of wigs can easily put on and go? According to our customers' feedback, a beginner-friendly wig should be with:
a. Pre-plucked Hairline. As a wig beginner, plucking the hairline is very tough work, and too much plucking can even ruin your new wig.
b. Bleached Knots. Bleached knots can be another challenge for wig beginners. Bleached knots make it so much easier to cut the lace and look more natural in the parting area.
c. It should be glueless, easy to install and easy to secure. So, the wig cap should have combs, adjustable straps, and elastic bands, so we can feel safe and comfortable.
d. The last and most important factor is that it be inexpensive.
So here we recommend you some beginner-friendly wigs:
