Should I shave my hairline to wear a full lace wig?

Our customers basically fall into three categories. Those who have no hair loss, those who have temporary hair loss, and those who have permanent hair loss. We have many customers who have no hair loss or temporary hair loss ask if they should shave their hairlines to wear a full-lace wig. Many times, they have read information that was not completely accurate or has been outdated or was intended for a different type of wearer and they interpreted that information to apply to their situation. We do not recommend that customers with no hair loss or temporary hair loss shave their hairlines.

There are many options for achieving a successful adhesive bond or other application over an existing hairline. You do not need to shave a healthy hairline or even a recovering hairline to wear a full-lace wig.

The customer who has permanent hair loss may want to consider shaving the hairline. This is a personal decision and it is a decision that can be very difficult to make, as it can involve a lot of emotion. The decision to shave the hair is a journey that each person has to travel until they reach a point of comfort with making that choice. If you have permanent hair loss, whether it is from a medical condition such as alopecia, or due to post-surgical scarring, it may be a better option to shave a very sparse hairline than to hold on to it. The hard part is really coming to terms with accepting the hair loss and we completely understand the sensitivity in dealing with that.

We specialize in working with customers to help them achieve the most natural look for their circumstances. And with each customer, we are able to help them choose the application methods that are best for them.
