Creating high-quality lace wig stock hair has many different types of cap construction. Understanding the differences will help you choose the most secure, undetectable, and comfortable fit possible. Private Stock Hair™ provides full lace, lace front, u-part units, and cranial prosthesis from approved medical insurers. All lace and silk human hair units manufactured from Private Stock Hair™ are handtied (each hair individually inserted into the cap and double knotted). Private Stock Hair™ wigs are not constructed by merely sewing weft (tracks) on a wig cap by hand.
A full lace wig, a popular lace wig type for black hair is made entirely of lace material which means that it can be parted anywhere. Full lace wigs offer much more versatility of hairstyle options, but the cap material is very delicate. Full lace wigs are entirely hand-tied. A full lace wig requires adhesive around the entire perimeter of your head (from hairline to nape). Delicate wig caps, such as silk and full lace offer very little if any stretch. However, this wig can be secured by an adjustable backstrap if desired. Full lace and silk wig caps are very delicate and require much more careful handling and upkeep than lace front wigs. Adhesive (wig glue) is required to wear this wig style.

A lace front wig is Very durable and dependable. The front of the wig has Swiss lace with hand-tied hair only in the top 3" from the hairline with a little stretch from ear-to-ear comfort. Lace front wigs may only be parted in the small 3" section in the crown area. The back of the wig is made by sewing skin wefts on the wig with technical precision.
Skin wefts are extremely thin, but strong wefts that have been sewn to the back of the wig with an industrial machine. Skin wefts create the ultimate ultra-natural and virtually undetectable weaves and wigs. Lace front wigs may only be parted in a small section in the crown area. The lace wig cap has a little stretch from ear-to-ear for added comfort. The wig can be secured by the attached adjustable backstrap and side-combs.
Lace front wigs may also be sewn along the perimeter (edges) of your braid-down foundation rather than getting a traditional sew-in hair weave using our human hair extension wefts (tracks). Lace front wigs are ideal for new wig wearers as well as women looking for durable and quick wig life! Available Adhesive is not required to wear this wig style.
A glueless wig is essentially a lace front wig that does not require glue to adhere the wig to your hairline. Features: adjustable backstrap, ear-to-ear elastic band, baby hair, and bleached knots. Adhesive is not required to wear this wig.
A U-part wig is essentially a lace front wig with a 'U' shaped opening in the crown area of the wig. The wig is designed to allow you to cover the top of your wig with your own hair so as to create an extremely realistic scalp and hairline. An upart wig also allows for better ventilation.
A machine weft wig is made entirely by an industrial machine using skin weft-like tracks. The tracks are closely sewn together horizontally. The hair cannot be parted without seeing the tracks on a machine-made wig. Additionally, the tracks are sewn to the edge of the cap material at the hairline. To create a more natural hairline you can comb-over a small portion of your hair exposing your own natural hairline and baby hair. Machine wefted wigs are a popular choice for women with thinning edges or aversion to adhesives. Our full sewn units are secured with adjustable backstrap and side combs. Thick hair, type 4a, 4b-c wigs are a great choice in machine weft because most very thick natural hairstyles like our Curlfriend™ or Breathless™ can be shaped and styled naturally without seeing an actual appearance of the scalp. Adhesive is not required to wear this wig.

Keep your wig on a wire wig stand, styrofoam form head, silk, or silk to satin bag when you are not wearing it. This will air out your wig, prevents agitation, and reduces stretching. Keep your unit in a dry and cool area. It is recommended to shampoo your PS Hair™ wig and allow it to completely dry before storing it.
While supply lasts you will receive a complimentary stocking wig cap with all wig purchases! Stocking style wig caps are typically worn beneath your wig unit to help keep you rbraid foundation neat and lessen hair breakage. These caps are also worn to assist with the application of lace front wigs.
