Wig Cap Construction Types

Wig Cap Types | Philadelphia Rosalind Stella's Wig BoutiqueWearing a wig or wiglet can enhance both your look and your confidence. But there are so many choices when it comes to which wig is right for you. Once you make the big choice of human hair versus a synthetic hair wig, you will want to consider the wig cap construction types. Wig caps come in a variety of styles and budgets to suit your specific lifestyle and needs.

Basic: Affordable & Durable

Let’s start with the basic wig cap, also known as the most affordable and durable option. This cap construction features open wefting, where the hair is attached to the cap in rows creating air flow. The hair at the crown of a basic cap is usually teased so that the cap cannot be seen, even creating some natural volume for the hair fibers. While the basic cap is the most affordable option, it does limit you in styling options.

Lace and Mono: Active & Natural

If you have an active lifestyle or are looking for the most versatile and natural appear, a lace front cap is a great option. Because of their ability to blend into the scalp, lace front caps are often used in theater and films for their natural appearance. Hair fibers are individually sewn into a fine, lace material, sometimes even with fine or baby hairs to create a more natural look. With this cap construction, you can pull your hair away from your face and into a ponytail or updo. The illusion of a natural and seamless hairline attracts most wig wearers to lace front cap construction.

Monofilament wigs are also a natural, comfortable choice. A monofilament cap is constructed with soft, breathable material and is perfect for those with sensitive skin or those who have undergone medical treatments like chemotherapy. The soft, sheer fabric blends into the scalp well. In fact, you can part your hair just about anywhere with a monofilament wig. Monofilament caps can be completely made of the sheer fabric, or just feature the sheer fabric at the top, often referred to as a mono top.
