There are several ways that wig caps are constructed
WEFT- The most popular is weft construction either by Hand or machine. Wefts are chunks of hairs sewn together to create the wig. There is limited flexibility in changing the styles of wigs made in this manner. To make a wig made of this type of sonstruction look its best we recommend using a pick comb or brushes without little balls at the end of each brush bristle to lift and separate the ahirs from each. By making the hairs fluff slightly around the part area it will mask the weft and give the wig a more realistic appearance.
CAPLESS- Made via a machine that places small wefts horizontally of hair onto thin, vertical, elastic lace strips. These straps may be limited to the front forward area of the wig or extend to most of the cap. The term “e;capless”e; means that there are open spaces between the wefts. Generally, this type of contruction looks better that a fully weft system since it uses smaller groupings of weft chunks.
SKIN SCALPS- Skin scalps use small areas of latex which have hairs inserted into them to create realistic parts in the hair. Although the wig caps can tend to be heavier if there is an extensive skin scalp area, these type of wigs generally look very good.
MONOFILAMENTS or MONO TOP- A fine, transparent nylon or silk mesh serves as the base of the wig cap with hairs individually hand-knotted into the mesh will allow the hair to fall naturally and gives more versatility in styling. Some wigs have full mono tops while some may have only a smaller monfilament area where the part is. Very suitable for persons with extensive hair loss, as the color of the scalp underneath shows through, creating the illusion of hair growing out of your scalp. This is the top end of wigs because of the realistic look that they can give. They also tend to be expensive because of the hours of labor involved in producing them.
