The anatomy of a wig...
Wig cap

Not every wig is the same inside

Our range incorporates monofilament, hand-tied and lace front wig caps. Discover below the different cap types so you can choose the best style for you.

Comfort cap wig base...

Comfort Cap wigs are the most common type used with synthetic fibre wigs. The top section has been machine made and often has a "perma tease" at the root of the fibre to hide the material at the base of the wig. This stops you from seeing the base underneath. It also gives them great root lift on voluminous styles. The rest of the base is made up of rows of hair called wefts. These run from temple to temple around the back of the head from top to bottom. There is a small gap between each row. This allows the wefts and fibre to move freely, replicating natural hair movement but also allowing the head to breathe underneath by letting air through to circulate and keep you cool. The soft velvet band at the front, nape and sometime on the ear-tabs ensure all day comfort while the fine Velcro tapes mean that the wig can be adjusted for a custom like fit.

 

Lace front with comfort cap wig base...

Lace Front Comfort Cap Base

Lace front wigs have a virtually invisible, hand knotted sheer lace front. This looks very natural when on, mimicking the look of baby fine hair growing from your forehead. The rest of the base is made up of a machine made top and a wefted back, just like the comfort cap base. Velvet lined ear tabs add comfort for sensitive skin while the fine Velcro tapes mean that the wig can be adjusted for a custom like fit.

Monofilament part or crown with comfort cap wig base...

Monofilament Part or Crown with Comfort Wig Base

Monofilament refers to a very fine skin toned mesh, to which the fibres are individually placed which creates the look of natural hair growing from a parting. Monofilament can cover the whole top of the head or just the section where the parting has been placed (right, left or centre), or at times just a little. Sometimes the monofilament which the hair is tied to has an extra layer underneath it, next to the skin, but most have just the very fine mesh. The base is our Comfort cap construction which is light, comfortable and breathable while the fine Velcro tapes mean that the wig can be adjusted for a custom like fit. Velvet lined ear tabs add comfort for sensitive skin while the fine Velcro tapes mean that the wig can be adjusted for a custom like fit.

Lace front, monofilament parting and comfort cap wig base...

Lace front, monofilament parting and comfort base cap

This is one of our most popular base constructions, combining the fit & breathability of a wefted comfort cap with the natural look of a monofilament parting and the off the face styling & barely visible mesh front of the lace front. The wefted mesh is not only comfortable to wear, but as it is machine made, it keeps the cost of the wig down, yet retains the luxurious look of the hand tied effect of the monofilament top & lace front. Velvet lined ear tabs add comfort for sensitive skin while the fine Velcro tapes mean that the wig can be adjusted for a custom like fit.

100% Hand knotted wig base...

100% Hand Knotted Wig Base

This cap has a 100% handmade and knotted base for realistic movement and styling.
The mesh cap is very soft, and each hair is individually hand tied to it creating the look of natural movement.
This cap style is perfect for those with sensitive skin as not only is it soft to wear, it has a fine velvet lining the front of the wig from ear to ear.

Comfort cap wig base...

Lase Front, Monofilament cap, Hand Knotted Wig Base

The most luxurious wig cap combination, often found in our 100% human hair styles as well as the most exclusive & expensive synthetic fibre wigs.
The monofilament top of this cap is hand knotted on a skin matching base to provide the most natural looking movement and parting, whilst the cap is also 100% hand knotted on a contoured, lightweight stretch fabric, providing the look of naturally moving hair. The lace front is hand-knotted on an almost invisible mesh that blends in with your own skin tone. This gives the look of hair that is growing right out of your scalp. Velvet lined ear tabs add comfort for sensitive skin while the fine Velcro tapes mean that the wig can be adjusted for a custom like fit.
