Human Hair Wigs for Women

FAQs Frequently Asked Questions

Wigs are a type of hair replacement system designed to cover the full head and provide the wearer with full hair coverage. These hairpieces are typically worn by women given the length, however, men can also wear wigs as well.

Superhairpieces offers a wide range of natural looking, comfortable and durable human hair wigs for women. This includes full lace and lace front women’s wigs in a variety of colors, textures and styles so you have one that exactly suits your needs.

Given that most of our wigs for sale are either full lace wigs or lace front wigs, you may be wondering — which one is better?

Both are similar in that they provide a natural looking front hairline, are easy to install and can last a long time if maintained properly. The differences, however, are that a lace front only provides a natural look in the front hairline while a full lace is natural throughout the hairpiece. However, because of this, full lace wigs for women tend to be more expensive than lace front wigs.

Additionally, full lace wigs may lack the durability of a lace front wig which can utilize a monofilament top for example. So in the end, it all depends on your needs and budget.

  • Choose the right base material/cap for your wig
    There are three main base materials in our wigs for sale at Superhairpieces with each having their own unique benefits — lace, skin and monofilament. Although nearly all our women’s wigs use lace in some form (full lace wigs or lace front wigs) which helps provide a natural look for the wearer and is a preferred choice for those with afro-textured hair, there are variations as we offer 100% hand-tied mono top wigs for example. Check out the different types of base materials.

  • Determine the right hair density for your women's wig
    Hair density is essentially how many strands of hair you have per square centimeter of your scalp or how thick your hair is. The more strands of hair you have, the higher your hair density.
    Choosing the appropriate hair density for your wig depends on a number of factors such as your:
    • Hair color
    • Hair type (Afro-textured, Asian, Caucasian, Hispanic)
    • Age
    Women generally tend to have at least medium hair density (110%) even in their sixties and beyond, but everyone is different and unique.
