WIG CAP CONSTRUCTION

 

Wig technology has changed many aspects of the construction of the wig. These are no longer the wigs of old, they are highly researched and expertly manufactured products.

The wig starts with a wig base, technically referred to as a cap. This is the material which the hair is attached to. Modern cap constructions are ultra-light and durable, made from quality materials that help make the wig look natural. Cap selection is important when choosing a wig; each construction represents a different method of attaching hair to the cap and has its own unique set of benefits for the wearer.

CLASSIC – Machine Made

  • Includes both capless and traditional machine-made constructions

  • Most durable and affordable

  • Most or all of the cap has open wefting for maximum air ventilation

  • Construction often gives the hair a natural lift with built-in volume at the crown

  • Hair is perma-teased at the root to help keep volume as well as mask the cap beneath for a natural appearance

MONOFILAMENT

  • Each hair is hand-tied onto the monofilament cap which is made of sheer, soft, comfortable fabric (often used in conjunction with soft, stretchy netting at the back and sides).  The hair is hand-tied onto the cap, as opposed to machine sewn.

  • Creates the most natural movement as each hair moves freely

  • So natural, the hair appears to be growing from the scalp

  • The softest and most comfortable cap – ideal for sensitive scalp and hair loss

  • Allows for styling versatility as the hair can be combed in any direction

  • Also referred to as 100% hand-knotted

HAND-TIED LACE FRONT

  • Lace or mono extends at the fringe area of the wig

  • Each hair is individually hand-tied (knotted) to the section of sheer lace

  • Creates the illusion of a natural-looking front hairline

  • Allows for styling hair away from the face

  • Most are ready to wear and reach from temple-to-temple

  • The material is generally delicate and should be handled with extra care
