Wigs, Extensions, and Hair Types: Everything You Need to Know!

Posted on September 29 2017


At Hair Phenatiks we only provide the highest quality REMY virgin hair in our lace wigs, frontals, closures, and extensions. REMY hair is the softest and silkiest option and looks the most natural because all of the cuticles are properly aligned to prevent tangling. Our hair is also always virgin, which means that it hasn’t been dyed or chemically treated, and only comes from one donor. No matter what salon you choose, it is important to ensure your sew ins always have these two qualities to keep your hair looking beautiful and natural.


Once that is taken care of, it’s time to decide the next step: do you need a lace wig, a frontal, a closure, or sew in extensions? Do you want Malaysian, Brazilian, Indian or European hair? This article will break down everything you need to know to decide which hairstyle is right for you.


Silk vs. Lace Wigs, Frontals, and Closures

What is the difference between our Hair Phenatiks silk and lace products? Silk wigs, frontals, and closures are a popular choice because the color is easier to match to skin tone, and they look more natural when inspected up close.


Lace, on the other hand, is a common choice because it lays flatter on the scalp than silk does. However, lace can be hard to match to some skin tones and therefore can look less natural. It also is more expensive than silk.


If you can’t decide between the two, schedule a Glam Consult with our experienced Hair Phenatiks professionals to discuss which one is right for you. Now, let’s review what else we have in store...

Lace Wigs

Our 100% natural virgin lace wigs are one of the bestsellers here at Hair Phenatiks. All of our lace wigs are made from premium REMY hair. They are custom and hand-tied to ensure high-quality and long lifespans. Whether you need wavy, straight, natural or curly, we have every style, length, and texture here in store. We also provide celebrity inspired pieces and dyed lace wigs in pink, red, rose gold, and more exotic looks.


Our full lace wigs are the best choice for you if you want a natural look and versatile styling options. Our lace wigs are installed with/or without glue or tape.  Lace Wigs can last longer ,no commitment, and can last up to a year with proper care and maintenance.


Hair Phenatiks is also happy to offer a selection of frontal choices, including frontal packages, lace frontals, and 360 frontals. Like the lace wigs, our frontals are made from REMY virgin hair. Frontals run from ear to ear and may be the perfect choice for you if you don’t want a full wig, but instead just want to conceal your hairline.


Our lace frontals come in a variety of colors and textures to match your own look. Frontals can be glued in, sewn in, or installed with an elastic band, and the maintenance and lifespan of your frontal will depend on this choice.


Our Hair Phenatiks closures are smaller versions of frontals. They typically just run across your hairline on the forehead rather than from ear to ear and are used to add volume and density to your natural hair. At Hair Phenatiks we offer silk and lace closures which can both be customized to blend seamlessly with your natural hairline.


While our lace wigs are laid over the hair, our extensions are applied directly to your natural hair strand by strand. Extensions can be clipped in or sewn in. Clipped in extensions are great to add volume and supplement your own natural look, while sew ins can be unique and vary with our many colors and styles.


Our range of sew ins includes kinky, wavy, curly or straight and are all made from 100% virgin human hair. Extensions are a perfect choice when you want to give your natural hair a break to recover from chemical treatments, heat, or hair dye.


Which Hair Phenatiks Hair Collection is Right For You?

When you come to Hair Phenatiks, the options for your hairstyle are endless, and we’re here to help you find the best and most beautiful version of yourself. Once you choose whether you want a lace wig, silk or lace frontal or closure, or sew in extensions, the next step is to choose which hair is best for you. At Hair Phenatiks, we offer Silver, Diamond, Platinum and Gold collections of high-quality REMY hair.

Silver Collection: Brazilian Hair

Our Silver collection of Brazilian hair is a high-quality choice for any woman. Brazilian hair is well known for being beautiful, shiny, and smooth. It is renowned for looking incredibly natural and ranges in shades of brown and black. Brazilian hair holds up well and requires low maintenance.

Gold Collection: Malaysian Hair

Our Gold collection is made from natural REMY Malaysian hair. It has a beautiful shine and holds curls well. Malaysian hair is a good choice for women who are seeking more volume and weight for their hair. Malaysian hair is generally very dark and does not range as much in colors and tones as other types of hair do. The best way to take care of Malaysian hair is to refrain from washing often, but moisturize regularly with leave in conditioners.

Platinum Collection: Indian Hair

Our collection of Indian hair is very fine with a silky texture. Indian hair has less of a shine than other types, so it blends well and has a natural look when used as extensions. The best way to care for Indian hair is to always air dry it and wrap it overnight to keep it protected.

Diamond Collection: European Hair

Our Diamond collection is made of 100% virgin European blonde hair for extensions and sew ins. European hair matches well with Caucasian hair types. It is also a healthy alternative for achieving a blonde look rather than bleaching or dying your natural hair. European hair is generally super light and holds color well.
