Lace-Based Hair Systems
If your client is looking for the most breathable hair systems orhairpiece toppers, lace-based won't disappoint! A lace-based hair system is made with a finely knitted mesh that has small holes, which allow for maximum airflow and breathability (especiallyideal for active clients). That’s why lace-based hair systems are one of the most popular types of hairpiece toppers for anyone who wears a toupee or and a wig. They get a comfortable base with a lightweight material that allows for a very undetectable hair system.
There are two specific kinds of lace-based hair systems:
- French Lace:This breathable and lightweight lace is practically invisible, thanks to its natural-looking color and well-ventilated stitching. Maybe your client is weighing the benefits of toupee vs. wig—no matter what they opt for, a French lace system is great for hot or humid weather. French lace can also be stretched to perfectly fit the wearer’s head and has a lifespan of 3 to 4 months.
- Swiss Lace:This option is less durable than French Lace and is ultra-thin. When paired with hairpiece toppers, it just doesn’t get any softer or more delicate than this natural base material. Unfortunately, that softness means Swiss lace doesn’t last as long as other materials and will need to be replaced more frequently, usually every 1 to 2 months.
We recommend using these adhesive removers for lace-based hair systems andwig removal.
Sunshine Oil Solvent
Thisgentle oil-based adhesive remover works best on delicate systems, like lace-based hair systems. Oil-based toupee and wig removers are the quickest at breaking down adhesives and are an excellent alternative to alcohol removers. Our Sunshine Oil Solvent is our go-to toupee orwig glue remover for clients who want an alcohol-free remover!
Sunshine Alcohol Remover
If you want to ensure a secure hair system application bond, ouralcohol-based remover is exactly what you need!While alcohol-based toupee andwig glue removers are slower at breaking down adhesives, the clean-up is much faster. There’s no oily residue to rinse away because the alcohol evaporates entirely after removal. We recommend using this solution for prepping and cleaning the scalp before applying anyhairpiece toppers for the best results.
Skin-Based (Polyurethane) Hair Systems
A skin-based system is made of a polyurethane material that blends easily, giving the illusion of human skin. (Hence the name!) These bases are see-through and come in a variety of thicknesses. Because the material is thin, a skin-based hair system can feel like it’s part of your actual scalp when you touch it. The thicker the material, the more water-resistant it is; the tradeoff is less breathability. These wig andhairpiece toppers last from 1 to 6 months.
We recommend using the following adhesive removers for skin-based (polyurethane) hair systems.

You can use Sunshine Citr-O-Sol to remove all types of adhesives and glues; your clients will love how it gets rid of all traces of adhesives without being too harsh on their scalp or hair system.
Monofilament-Based Hair Systems
Monofilament-based hair systems are the most affordable option—and the most durable. Mono bases use a fine mesh material that lets light and air pass through, helping increase its lifespan. Your clients will appreciate the styling versatility of a mono base: They can change their hair’s part any way they like! This base works especially well for clients who have more sensitive scalps.
