Lace wigs have been around for many centuries. They are worn by many celebrities and women to enhance appearance. This type of hair replacement gives them the opportunity to try new hairstyles without damage to their own hair. There are people who have undergone medical treatments and have lost all of their hair. Lace hair pieces, called cranial prosthesis in the medical world, can help give the person a solution by attaching hair that looks natural and will go undetected so they can live their lives as normal. Men also wear these lace wigs s to enhance their looks and conceal balding as they start to age. When men wear them, they do not call it a wig but would prefer to call it a toupee or hair piece.
Lace wigs are made using a thin piece of lace for the base and each hair is individually attached to the lace with a special needle. This process is called ventilation. After the wig is completed, the lace around the edge of the lace front wigs is usually glued to your scalp using special adhesives that make the lace invisible. The result, if done correctly, is a wig that does not look like a fake. It should look as though the hair is growing directly from the scalp and no one will be able to tell it is not your actual hair.
Years ago wigs made with lace were very expensive. Only the very wealthy and famous people could afford to buy them. They were expensive because it took about 40 hours to create one hair piece and not many people knew the skill of making lace wigs. It was not uncommon for a full lace hair wig to cost anywhere from $1000 to $5000 or more depending on the quality of hair you chose. As lace front wigs have become more common in modern culture, they have also become more affordable. Nowadays, they can be purchased online or in hair supply stores in many countries.

Okay, so this time I actually did read it as wigs and not wings. But this got me thinking, how would lace wings be created, and who on earth would wear those? Man, you guys are really fueling my ZC creativity. Thank you kindly, good sir (or ma'am). Good day to you. Now going join your friend Becky in the banned spambots corner.

First of all, how did you escape the 17th century, and secondly, how do you know how to operate the internet? More importantly, HOW DID THEY KNOW HOW TO MAKE SPAMBOTS THAT COULD OPERATE THE INTERNET IN THE 17TH CENTURY?!

okay bye at least becky was actually hot till she broke my heart icon_cry.gif

On second thought he's still banned but this topic is so lulz-worthy I'm gonna leave it open for the hell of it. Stuff like this only happens once in a lifetime. ... okay so it's the second time it's happened this month but still.

'Nobody wants your wigs'

You have no idea how hard I am laughing right now. icon_xd.gif

At first I thought this was some sort of joke by someone who happened upon the archives. I'm kinda glad I was wrong. icon_xd.gif

What's with the wigs? And are there Lace-Back wigs? Just, why wigs? Of all the things to spam...I'm so used to seeing something like "Congratulations, you have been selected to win a free iPod Nano!"
So...does this mean all of PureZC has been selected to win a free Lace-Front Wig icon_deformed.gif!?

My one regret is that now that asd123 has been banned, there is now nobody proficient in the sufficient awareness of wiggery (Short of Wikipedia) to aid my inevitable ascent into masterhood of all things wig-related. Think of the sheer potential that could have been achieved here today!

Truly dark, dark times...

At least they got it in the right section this time...I don't see why anyone would spam advertizements for wigs on PureZC though...is this like one of those Indian call center type things?

I like how his custom title has been changed to "Nobody Wants your Wigs." That just made my day XD.

At least it isn't viagra spam. My Gmail spambox is LOADED with viagra spam. *shudder*

This is pretty much going to become the new PureZC inside joke. No doubt about it. Probably not quite as ubiquitous as 744 though.

Viagra spam? What in the world did you sign up for o.o? And if this becomes the new inside joke...what'll happen to the CDI Zelda jokes D:?

I honestly have no idea where the viagra spam came from. I suspect it was caused by creating a facebook account.

Just cause it's a new joke doesn't mean it will replace the old ones. My Little Pony didn't replace Gurren Lagann, which itself didn't replace the CD-i Zelda stuff. Likewise, lace front wigs will not replace 744, MAH BOI, or WATER! *splash*.

MAH BOI! Lace front wigs are what all true warriors strive for.

I hope this becomes a PZC meme, but I'm not sure it can when people talk about it becoming one.

Edit: Who set the filter so four exclamation marks get auto corrected to just one? Stupid...

That never stopped 744. There was an entire thread dedicated to it and I'm pretty sure people talked about it becoming a PZC meme.
