So these hand made items are made on a silk, Swiss, HD or Tansparent lace. Huh!? Yes there are different kinds which makes it hard to choose especially with social media playing a major influence in the way things look now a days. But let me tell you this, what no one tells you before buying. Although very versatile lace fronts can be a hassle if you are new to the game. There is a lot of mantinence involved in the up keep of these products. They go from ear to ear and vary in size, 13x4, 13x6 or 360.
