All about Wig Caps!


When it comes to purchasing human hair wigs, there's a lot to take into consideration. You want to pick the right color, length, shape and fit for you. You'll want to take your time figuring out which wig will be the best. But one component of wigs that many people don't think about is the caps to which the wigs are sewn that fit on your head. There are a few different options to consider.

The most common cap that you'd find in most human hair wigs is a standard cap. These caps are the ones that most people think of when they imagine a wig. The cap has a closed lace layer at the crown and the rest of the hair is sewn into the cap. The hair at the crown is usually teased to cover the cap so it has a more natural look. Because of this, there is a natural lift at the front of the wig which gives the entire look more volume, so it's a good choice for someone who wants the illusion of thicker and more voluminous hair.

Capless human hair wigs are similar in construction to the standard cap except instead of a closed lace layer it has lace strips that have open spaces between wefts, which are the threads that the wig is laced around to keep it together. These open spaces create a more comfortable and ventilated experience for the wearer, making them great for the summer time. They are overall lighter than lace wigs with standard caps.

The last choice of caps is a mono-filament cap. These caps use a nylon that is thin and breathable that looks like skin. In fact, it tends to match up pretty well with the natural color of the wig wearer because it partly reveals the actual scalp below. It creates a more natural look. It also offers the most choice in styling because each hair is hand sewn onto the cap so it moves like natural hair on the head. This means it can be brushed or parted in any way you'd like. They are a great choice for those with total hair loss because a standard cap can be itchy and uncomfortable to sensitive scalps but mono-filament are far softer.

I hope you find this information helpful as I know many of you wear wigs because of fashion (lolita, gyaru, ulzzang, etc.) or for cosplay purposes. Whatever choice you make in caps, make sure it's a comfortable one for you. Try on many human hair wigs so you can to get an idea of how each feel to you personally. Take your time and find that perfect wig.
