Monofilament or Mono Top: transparent nylon or silk mesh with individually tied hand knotted hair fibers placed into the mesh. This allows the hair to fall naturally and gives it versatility for styling purposes. A mono top is suitable for everyone, and which is the most suitable substitute for those with excessive hair loss. The color of a natural scalp underneath and the mimic effect of real hair growth gives them the most natural look and the most comfortable use.
Lace Front: lace front wigs provide realism and styling from every angle. They feature hand-tied hair fibers in a poly-silk mesh base that generally runs temple to temple along the front of the wig cap. Lace front hairlines give the option of styling the hair on or off your face. A thin transparent lace is designed to contour to the shape of your forehead, which can work well with all skin tones and doesn’t require glue to fix it in almost all circumstances.
Skin Top: Thin polyurethane or latex inserted at the top of the wig cap with implanted hair. It creates an appearance of natural hair growth. A skin top wig construction is suitable for those with hair loss on the top of heads but having existing hairs around the head.
Standard Cap Top: This type of cap construction is usually made with a lace layer at the crown. A standard top wig cap works for wearers with total hair loss, or those still having hair.
Capless Construction: It is similar to a standard wig cap, but a capless wig does not have a lace layer at the crown as the standard wig cap does. It has vertical lace strips with open spaces between the wefting, allowing for maximum breathability and an overall lighter weight cap.
Open Cap: An open wefted wig cap means that the side and back of the inner cap is constructed with wefts of hair with approximately 1/2" of space between each weft of hair. This kind of wigs allows light-weight and breathable wearing experience.
Standard Traditional Wig Cap: It is the most common wig cap construction: closed lace layer at the crown with the hair machine sewn into the cap. The crown hair is usually lifted ensuring the cap is invisible.
Hand-Tied Wig Cap: Hair fibers are hand-tied into the cap, providing a natural airflow in the hair. There is no difference to your own hair, instead, it gives you greater confidence and styling versatility.
