Last week, the Internet and the beauty world went berzerk when it saw pics of Kylie Jenner donning aqua blue hair for the first time. Headlines flashed across computer screens everywhere reading, "Kylie Jenner Dyes Her Hair Light Blue." Kylie's new blue 'do was no result of heavy bleaching or color treatment. Like many before her, she reached for a wig in order to achieve her lightly colored tendrils.

Now, you may be wondering, how did Kyle get her wig to look so natural? When you're Kylie, you don't just purchase any old wig, you splurge. The rising social icon reached for a custom-made lace wig, a 'do that had many of beauty's biggest players stumped. Lace wigs are no new experiment. They have been around for ages. Chances are your faves - Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga - have already worn them. Interested in giving lace wigs a spin? Here are a few things you should know first.

1. They're Called Lace Wigs for a Reason

Lace wigs are a special kind of wig in which human or synthetic hair is tied to a sheer lace base. The see-through lace is crucial in giving lace wigs their more natural appearance. Kylie's new 'do looks great cause you can still see her scalp due to her natural part. This is one of the many plus sides to wearing lace wigs.

2. Positioning Is Key

3. They Aren't Cheap

Yeah, you could purchase a synthetic generic lace wig, but it won't have you looking like Beyonce. If you want the real deal, you'll have to spend real money. Some units can cost upwards of $5,000.

4. Lace Wigs Require Maintenance and Attention

This isn't just an easy throw-on-and-go hairstyle. For the best results, you'll want a custom wig that has been made specifically for your desired look and hair shape. If you want baby blue threads like Kylie's, you'll need to consult a color specialist to get your wig's hue just right. Not to mention, you'll need to wash and condition your wig frequently to keep it fresh and voluminous.

5. This Is No New Trend

Ladies and men have been rocking with lace wigs for a while now. Kylie is by far not the first to fool the world with her black-to-blue-to-black hair transformation, just FYI.
