CAP CONSTRUCTION

We came a long way- Take a look at the advancements in the technology, they are so incredible; it is hard to determine the difference between a high quality synthetic wig and a human hair wig.

  1. 100% HAND-TIED100% hand-tied monofilament caps allow each hair to move freely for the most natural look. Other designs referred to as ‘hand-tied’ feature a combination of hand-tied and machine-attached hair. This means that some areas (generally the part or crown) are hand-tied, but the rest is machine-attached. If you want the entire cap to be hand-tied, make sure to look for 100% hand tied!
  2. MONOFILAMENTMonofilament caps offer a very natural look with parting versatility. The mesh material gives the illusion of hair growth from the scalp and allows for individual, hand-tied hair. As a result, hair can be parted and combed in different directions. Monofilament wigs can be monofilament at the part, crown or entire top of wig. Double monofilament wigs also happen to be a good option for sensitive scalps as the cap is soft. Of the monofilament caps, the 100% hand tied cap is generally the most comfortable.
  3. LACE FRONTLace front wigs create the illusion of natural hair growth along the hairline. This adds to the natural appearance of a wig and allows for styling away from the face. Some come pre-trimmed and are ready to wear while others will require some personalization.
  4. CAPLESSBasic caps are the most common and affordable design. Wefts of hair are sewn onto the cap, which has a closed lace layer at the crown. The hair is cut and styled into a specific style and the crown is often teased or crimped so you cannot see down through to the cap. This type of cap often gives the hair volume at the crown. Some wigs are referred to as capless. This is a bit of a misnomer as there is a cap, but instead of the closed lace layer at the crown, it has vertical lace strips with open spaces between the wefts.

MONOFILAMENT

 

Lace front/ Machine weft back with adjustable strap: can be worn in a low pony tail only. Features a 6″ parting area for more styling versatility. Lower cost alternative to the Full lace front/stretch lace back w/adjustable strap as with this cap the back is constructed with machine made wefts as opposed to the hair on the entire unit being tied by hand.Full lace front/stretch lace back w/ adjustable strap: can be worn in a low pony tail only, all hairs on unit are tied by hand.

 

Full lace no stretch: This cap style is recommended for those who are either experienced with head measurements, or those whom are completely sure of their head measurements.  High ponytail achievable

 

Full lace w/ stretch: This cap style is the recommended cap style for both experienced and those new to lace wigs and measurements as the stretch panel allows more freedom.

 

Full lace w/Hidden knots: Hidden knots allows for an even more natural scalp appearance that simply full lace. Hidden knots are created by injected the hairs into/through layers of silk panel squares thus hiding the knots that are tied to the base of the unit.  With this option there is no need for bleaching of the knots in the hidden knots/silk panel area. High ponytail achievable.

 

Full lace/ thin skin perimeter: This is a full lace cap with a strip of polyurethane material that extends around the entire perimeter of the cap. This cap is a good choice for those who don’t have hair around the natural hairline area who wish to achieve an even longer lasting bond with tapes/adhesives. High ponytail achievable.
