Thin skin lace wigs use a coating of polyurethane to create a pliable, swim cap-like base for the wig. Manufactures use thin skin with or without a conventional lace front wig to create the best fit and the most natural hairline. Thin skin lace wigs can be trimmed with scissors or a knife to match your natural hair line. To properly measure the thin skin for trimming, you will need the aid of a friend or other person.
