FAQ's/TERMS & CONDITIONS
Here are a few answers to some commonly asked questions to Styled by Esther, if you can't find the answer to your question contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org or Instagram.
All styled wigs are subject to variations to the style pictured/requested, Esther chooses to retain creative control to create a fabulous customised style just for you! although If needing something specific, they will endeavour to recreate the style as close as possible but please be aware final result may vary and images provided are for inspiration only, no wig can be made "exactly" the same, we can get pretty close but out of respect I will design something similar and not replicate, especially if the images are of another wig stylist's work. If you have any special requests (e.g more height, tighter curls etc) please add notes on your order prior to checkout.
While not in use store either in a box or on a foam head to keep its shape. Maintenance and Up-keep is up to you, for additional longevity before every use you can give your wig a spray with strong hold hairspray to keep everything in place. If you want to learn more about wig styling & maintenance my styling tutorials on my Patreon will give you enough basic knowledge to fix up your wigs yourself!
HOW DO I PUT ON A LACE FRONT WIG?
You can watch this Informative YouTube video from the Styled by Esther channel below:
OR THE BASICS ARE:
Before the first wear, carefully trim back the lace in a semi circle around the forehead, make sure to leave about 1.5cm to 2.5cm of lace or whatever you feel comfortable with it differs with everyone.
For better stability use a wig cap or old stocking.
When putting on a lace front wig DO NOT put it on upside down then flip it over your head, it's the quickest way ruin a styled wig or make a Shake & Go ratty, hold it like you're putting on a swimming cap other the top of the head and lowering it on.
To secure the lace front wig you can use hairpins or spirit gum, when using spirit gum adhere to the temples and wait till tacky, then with a piece of stocking or soft fabric gently apply pressure to glue the lace down, using the stocking not only avoids getting spirit gum on your fingers but also blends the lace into your skin better.
HOW DO I WASH AND CLEAN MY LACE FRONT WIGS?
Soak in lukewarm water and add washing powder or fabric softener and then rinse. (ie, NapiSan, cuddleys, ect.)
Carefully hang by the nape of the neck to dry naturally.
Some people do use silicone based conditioner to wash them instead of fabic softener.

CAN I USE MY GHD/HAIRSTRAIGHTENER ON MY LACE FRONT WIG?
You can use certain temperature controlled hairstyling tools on a low setting 140°C/28°F and under.
but you have to be super careful because direct heat will end up melting the synthetic fibres of the wig.
Styled by Esther recommends to only to use steam to style and straighten your lace front wig as it is more gentle on the synthetic fibers.
We believe it's better to be safe than sorry.
