The wig cap is the part of the wig or hairpiece that the hair is attached to and fits over your hair. There are many varied types of wig cap constructions available, and it’s important to know the differences and advantages of each so you can choose the one to best suit your lifestyle.

100% Hand Tied

The 100% hand tied wig caps are the most natural looking wigs, because each hair is carefully hand-knotted onto a fine tulle base which means the hair strands can be individually styled or combed into place, in any direction. 100% hand tied caps also offer versatility for styling and parting because the hair looks like it is growing directly from the scalp. These are the most comfortable and lightweight caps available, making them perfect for sensitive scalps.


Monofilament wig caps feature a monofilament section which is hand tied to a sheer, soft base and they are available as a monofilament parting, crown of full monofilament top for easy styling. Generally speaking, the higher the monofilament area, the more expensive the wig will be. Monofilament caps also look extremely natural when parted because the hair looks like it’s growing straight from the scalp.


Lace Front

Lace front wig cap constructions offer a very natural looking front hairline where the hair is hand tied to a sheer lace base at the front of the cap. This means that hair can be styled away from the forehead to give a very natural look. Due to the lace fabric, these wigs need very gentle care and handling to avoid damage to the cap.


Wefted Cap

The wefted cap is a popular and more affordable option, where the hair is machine sewn (not hand tied) onto soft and stretchy fabric strips. Due to the wefting, the wig is light, comfortable and cool with great ventilation to let the air flow through. Wefted cap styles usually feature more volume and lift around the crown and teasing at the roots so that the wefting is undetectable. In terms of use, these wigs are extremely durable and very easy care.
