Two types of wig cap construction

Apr 24, 2017 5:41:31 PM

There are several different constructions methods for wigs and each has its own advantages. Selecting the right wig construction for you will depend on a number of factors such as your budget, environment and personal taste.



Also a very popular construction method, a capless wig can be a more affordable due to the simpler construction. It also has open machined wefts in the rear of the wig, which makes the wig both light and cool to wear. The hair in the crown area is often teased a little to hide the wefting and this also gives the appearance of a good volume of hair in that area. Because of the way the wig is constructed around the crown area you cannot style the wig to have a definite part. So it is best suited to people who normally don't have a definite part in their own style. This is commonly more for mature men and women.

Monofillament Cap:

This construction style uses a very light and translucent mesh in the crown area, which the hair is hand tied to. This gives a very realistic appearance, as the translucent mesh takes on the wearers scalp colour when placed on the scalp, so the wearer's own scalp is visible in the part area while being worn. Mono top wigs are very versatile as the hair can be parted as needed in the Monofillament area (referred to as a free style). Obviously the cost of not only the monofilament mesh but the labour intensive process of hand tying the hair to the mesh makes this one of the more expensive methods.


In reality if you have no budgetary constraints then custom-made lace wigs would be ideal. In reality the time and bother required to have the item regularly made and the extra care needed can sometimes outweigh the overall benefits as people often want a wig which is easy to care and quick to put on.
