Hair Lines

With hair of any kind you want it to look as real and natural as possible. The best way to do this is with customizing the wigs hair like by plucking and bleaching the hairline to mimic a beautiful BOMB scalp! 

Plucked meaning for wigs: A pre-plucked wig means that your hairpiece will come with a natural hairline where the baby hairs are already plucked using a tweezer.  Plucking  creates baby hair illusions and a realistic, natural looking hairline. 

Bleached knots meaning: When wigs are created a dark knot where each strand is secured when hair is tied to the lace base becomes apparent. Bleaching knots is a processing involving hair bleach (on the knots only) that will reduce their visibility and help make the hair extremely natural appear as if it is growing from your own scalp.

Our wigs come in two styles. Pre-Custom and Stock. Our pre-customized wigs are already, pre-plucked with baby hairs and bleached knots. Out stock wigs do not come preplucked or with bleached knots but you or stylist can customize the hair line easily to your liking. Read more here about pre-custom wigs
