Having a beautiful hairstyle is the wish of every woman. There are more and more types of wigs on the market, and finding the perfect one can be challenging. When you come to the vendor’s site, does the variety of options make you feel hesitant? Like length, density, lace type & cap size. Therefore, it is essential to understand how these factors can contribute to giving you the looking and feel you need first.

In this blog, we will help you how to select wig length, density, lace type, and cap size:

1) Wig Length

Wigs come in different lengths. You can find them ranging in length from 8 inches to 40 inches. According to the length, the wigs can be divided into short wigs (8-12 inches), medium length wigs (14-22 inches), and long wigs (24-40inches).

But how to select the wig length? Like most women, you might think that wig length is simply the measure of the hair on the unit from top-to-end. While this is true, if you buy a wig based solely on this understanding, you may get a shorter wig than you expected. Cause the hair texture is also one of the most important factors that influence how long your hair looks.

Different wig textures of the same length may provide different appearances in terms of length. This is because the hair strands in wigs of different textures can be curly or wavy. It causes the hair to look a little shorter than its original length. This essentially means that wigs of the same length but the different texture may appear different.

In order to give you a better understanding of the length of each hair, we include a wig length chart, which shows each length of hair and where it falls on your body. This will help you decide whether a certain length is suitable for you. Depending on your height and physical characteristics, there may be slight changes.


2) Wig Density

Wig density is one of the most important aspects of any wig. Just as human hair has a different density, wigs are also characterized by hair density. Wig density is expressed as a percentage, which tells you how much hair is actually on the wig but does not involve texture. The higher the density percentage, the fuller it looks; The lower the density percentage, the thinner it looks. Getting a wig of the correct density will ensure you can embrace a perfectly natural-looking hairstyle.

To give customers the option to choose the density of they want, Yolissa hair makes wigs of different densities. This ensures that the client can choose the wig density according to their needs. 180% density is the most common and natural choice, which is most like our own hair density.

You can refer to this hair density chart to understand how full of each density is.

In the density chart, the texture is straight. Also, please note that different textures will affect how dense the hair appears. Cause with curl or wavy, the volume of the wig will become fuller than when it is in its original straight texture. So with same density, curly wigs will look fuller than straight wigs.

3) Lace Type

When shopping for wigs, you will come across different types of lace. Generally, being Swiss lace and HD lace. Each lace type has its unique characteristics, advantages and disadvantages. So, to choose the correct lace type for your wig, it is significant to know about all of them. 

Swiss lace is the most widely used type of lace for wigs. They are not too thin and soft. Swiss lace may not be suitable for all kinds of skin, but still needs to be covered with a liquid foundation. But perhaps the biggest advantage of Swiss lace is its durability – it can withstand more tension. And the price is more affordable. You can find Swiss lace on various wigs, such as lace frontal wigs, 360 lace wigs, full lace wigs, and closure wigs. According to the difference in Swiss lace color, it can be divided into transparent lace and medium brown lace.

HD lace is invisible, seamless and undetectable, very thin and soft. It can melt to most skin tones well. Human hair HD lace wig fits all customers with different color skin, creating an invisible effect that looks very natural. On the other hand, HD lace is more fragile than Swiss lace and is easier to tear during processing, so you need to be very careful with HD lace. Because HD lace is custom-made and expensive, you’ll rarely find it on 360 lace wigs or full lace wigs. Instead, you’ll find it in a lace closure wig and a lace front wig.

4) Cap Size

Measuring your head size is an important task before ordering a wig. No one wants to buy a wig that doesn’t fit.

On Yolissa site, the cap size for wigs default is medium cap size/average cap size, which suits 95% of customers. And wigs normally come with adjustable straps or Velcro (headband wig) on the back. Some slight size differences can be adjusted via them.

But each customer’s head size is different, so we also provide large cap size and small cap size. If you are interested in large are small, please leave a comment when placing an order or contact our customer service for help.
