Lace front wigs have a very unique construction that give
them a certain quality that standard wigs just can’t compete with. They are
made with a process called “ventilation” in which fibers are hand looped one by
one into the front lace. This special patterning mimics the look of a natural
hairline and gives the illusion of believably real hair.
First step in wig buying: CAP SIZE! Like snowflakes, no two heads are alike. They come in all different shapes and sizes. It is important you know your measurements when wig shopping.
Got small head? A large one? Well you can thank the heavens above because Pish Posh Wigs have adjustable caps that can stretch all the way up to 23” in circumference. I guess you could call us size queens.

Not all wig fibers are alike. If you want to straighten or curl your wig, you’ll need a flat iron, and to do that without frying your fibers into an unsavory ramen noodle-like texture, you’ll want a wig with heat resistant fibers. Pish Posh Wigs uses Futara, a high grade Japanese Kanekalon fiber that has a sleeker and softer texture than standard Kanekalon. Futara fibers can withstand heat up to 410 degrees. However, it is best to keep styling tools like flat irons between 280 – 340 degrees to avoid changing the fiber’s texture.
