Wigs, weaves, and hair extensions are simply becoming more and more common today for all women of all nationalities! Many well know female celebrities often use quality wigs, weaves, and hair extensions to create their glamorous look and star appeal.
Traditionally, women of color, have had very limited choices when it came to finding natural looking and high quality wigs, and hair extensions, unless they were custom made for them.

Full Lace Wigs do not only have the lace on the front part from ear to ear. With full lace wigs the lace goes completely around the perimeter opening of the wig. When it applied and fitted correctly the whole circumference of your head is sealed. This wig can be pulled up on the sides and the back …
