Wig Basics for Getting Started

At Innovative Hair Solutions we have many options to match you with your perfect wig and provide the best service possible. When considering what kind of wig to get, you first need to understand the different kinds that are available.


Ready-made wigs are made using the same special and delicate process as all other wigs. Generally available in a half wig and full wig option, these wigs are generally priced lower than others while offering similar realistic features of a natural look. The ready-made wig may be an ideal solution for someone who is looking for an immediate solution to hair loss. Whether due to natural causes, or a life event like needing chemotherapy or other medical situations, we can provide you with a custom wig in a relatively short amount of time. For exact timing, contact us directly at Innovative Hair Solutions. We are here to find you the exact wig you are looking for and are more than happy to work with you to find the right look.


Lace front wigs, generally a slightly more expensive option, is distinguished by the fact that each hair is individually tied into a lace at the front of the hairline. These wigs have a very natural look and provide a more realistic look. If you’re looking for a high-end wig that looks like it is growing directly from your scalp, a lace-front might be the wig for you.

Full Lace Wigs

A full lace wig is generally created from human hair and constructed with a cap. Being constructed with natural human hair, you can expect it to behave like natural hair so you can part the hair in a variety of ways, make a ponytail, braids, or cornrows. Usually installed with glue on top of braided hair, the wig is secured onto the scalp. These wigs are typically high end, and it is best to let a professional like someone at Innovative Hair Solutions install them.


If you are looking for a wig to stand out, you can always opt for a custom wig. These human-hair wigs are created just for you, your stylistic choice, and your head shape. Typically lace-front or full lace, these wigs can be more costly, but provide a superior fit and realistic look.

Taking Care of Your Wig

Wigs should be thought of as your own hair, and taken care of accordingly, especially if you are looking to maximize the lifespan of your wigs. When you take your unit off, it is best to store it on a mannequin head. If your wig is sewn along your hairline, you should consider wearing a bonnet at night to protect the hair.

While you should not over-wash your wigs, when you do wash them, be sure to use sulfate free shampoo and pay attention to whether you are washing a synthetic hair wig or not as there may be specialty shampoos.
