Wigs & Customisation

What is the difference between HD Lace & Swiss Lace?

HD Lace (also known as CB Thin lace) is a very fine, delicate lace material. HD Lace creates a seamless hairline and melts more effortlessly than swiss lace.

Our swiss lace is also a fine material but not as thin as HD Lace.

What are the pros and cons of HD lace and Swiss lace?

HD Lace, due to its delicate material is not as durable as swiss lace. The life span of HD lace is decreased the more the wig is worn.

However due to the material used for our swiss lace, once installed with or without glue creates a flawless, undetectable finish.

Swiss lace is thicker than HD lace, it does not melt as flawlessly as HD lace.

However, as the material used for swiss lace is more durable, it lasts longer than HD lace.

Should I go for HD or Swiss lace?

This is dependent on preference and the reason for your purchase. For example, if your unit if for a special event e.g. wedding – we would recommend HD Lace.

What is the difference between 5×5, 13×4 and full lace?

The measurements above refer the size of the lace.

5×5 is our closure size and can be used to create a simple middle or side part.
