Wig Cap Types

 Back to Support Page



It all begins with the wig base, referred to as a cap. This is the material to which the hair is attached in order to create the wig. The new cap constructions are lighter, more durable, and so much more natural looking! When choosing a wig, it is important to consider the cap construction – each approach has a specific method of attaching hair to the cap and offers its own set of advantages. The differences between the various caps we use are explained below.

WEFTED CAP WITH LACE FRONT

The wefted wig has the simplest and therefore least expensive cap. Thanks to their lightweight materials, these wigs are highly comfortable to wear. The hair is machine-sewn onto the wefts, which in turn are attached to the cotton strips that form the wig’s basic shape. Pictured here is a machine-sewn cap made from wefts combined with a Lace Front, which allows fringeless (forehead-revealing) hairstyles.



PARTIAL MONOFILAMENT WITH LACE FRONT

This cap is mainly wefted, but the area of the parting is made from monofilament, which is a very thin fabric. In this monofilament part, any hair is tied individually by hand. Due to its transparency and fine knotting, the monofilament part looks like the wearer’s own scalp, hence the highly visible location of the parting appears particularly natural. Through the monofilament parting the hair volume at the upper head is flat,which gives the wig a special natural appearance.



MONOFILAMENT WITH LACE FRONT

These durable, high-quality wigs with large hand-tied monofilament on top of the head are specifically designed for medical requirements. The back and side parts of the cap are made from wefts, i.e., the hair is sewn by machine onto cotton ribbons. The monofilament,which is located at the exposed area on top of the head, is an extremely thin mesh in which the hair is tied individually by hand. Extremely lightweight and breathable, the monofilament cannot be distinguished from one’s own scalp. A parting can be drawn wherever required. In addition, the cap is combined with a Lace Front, which allows fringeless (forehead-revealing) hairstyles.



100% HAND-TIED MONOFILAMENT WITH LACE FRONT

This is our highest quality wig, offering an ultimate comfort and maximum natural appearance. The cap combines monofilament (upper head) and medical grade mono-net. In the area of the entire top of the head, where the scalp is easily visible, the hair is singly weaved into the monofilament. Fine and made of very thin mesh, the monofilament is extremely light and permeable to air, and looks like your own scalp. A parting can be drawn wherever required. The remainder of the wig base is made from mono-net. Into this fine and partly stretchy tulle the hair is individually tied by hand. This base is extremely light and air-permeable and offers optimum wearing comfort. In addition, the cap is combined with a Lace Front, which allows fringeless (forehead-revealing) hairstyles.
