TYPES OF WIG CAP

 

Monofilament + 100% Handmade
The best quality wigs using monofilament and hand tying. This luxury product provides 100% comfort. The mono top is woven onto a fine base  and is undetectable to the eye. It looks like skin and is very realistic. The remainder of the wig is a fine mesh and the hair is hand tied to it making it lightweight. 



 


Monofilament + Weft
The hair is woven onto a very fine mesh on the scalp area (mono top) which is invisible against the skin. These are probably the most popular wigs. The wefted area is machine made with hair sewn to strips of material (ribbons).


 


100% Hand Tied
The whole wig cap is made of fine mesh.  Whilst this type of wig does not have a mono top, the whole wig is hand tied so still gives the appearance of skin.


 


Wefted Wig with Mono Parting
Wefting means the thin strips of material (ribbons) that the hair is machine sewn to. This particular cap has a mono parting. Again, this gives the appearance of skin, but usually these wigs are a little cheaper that the full mono top. The parting is not adjustable. This wig has a mono parting:




 

Small Mono Part


Wefted wig with small mono area, usually at the crown.


 


Wefted
Wefted means strips of ribbon like material which the hair is machine sewn on to. This is the usual construction of a wig and makes it more lightweight and cooler to wear. Wefted only wigs are a cheaper variety of wig cap. People with hairloss who need to wear a wig every day usually prefer a mono top wig as they are more realistic.


 

Lace front
Lace front wigs are 100% hand tied as mentioned previously, but with a lace (netted) front to give a realistic *join* at the forehead. These wigs do not need any adjustment to the front of the wig. Lots of 100% hand tied wigs are made this way giving an invisible line around the forehead.

However, some lace front wigs have lace that is left longer at the front of the wig so that it can be trimmed to the customers desired length. These are very rare now.  This is usually then glued to the hairline to give a realistic look.   Either way has the same effect. Video of how to attach these wigs can be found on You Tube.
