Cap Construction Descriptions
Traditional cap construction features a fine net material in the top area with an open cap in the back area. Weftings attached to stretch elastic lace make the open back creating better ventilation to keep the head cooler. The stretch lace along with adjustable tabs at the nape to adjust circumference allow for a more secure fit. A flexible wire in the ear tab allows the front sides to be contoured to the shape of the face for a natural look. A Traditional cap or a wig utilizing components of this type of cap construction is often referred to as a “machine-made” cap.
A Lace Front wig has a hairline made of a fine lace mesh in which each hair is individually hand knotted. The lace varies in width from ¼ to 1½ inches. The lace typically extends across the entire front hairline but on occasion may extend from ear to ear. The benefit of a Lace Front wig is an amazingly realistic hairline that appears as if the hair is growing directly out of the scalp and allows the fiber in front to be styled off the face in any direction. The neutral color of the lace mesh takes on the skin tone of the wearer making the hairline more natural looking and virtually invisible. A Lace Front can be utilized on wigs of any type cap construction.
Cap less wigs are commonly referred to as an “open cap” wig due to the lack of the fine net material used in the top as on a Traditional cap. The entire cap is produced with weftings attached to thin stretch elastic lace making the wig better ventilated throughout and more comfortable as a result. Adjustable tabs at the nape and contoured ear tabs are characteristic of this cap as well.
Our exclusive Featherlight_CapFeather light design utilizes Cap less construction using ultra-thin weftings throughout the wig. These amazingly thin weftings create super lightweight wigs that are exceptionally cool and comfortable to wear. Feather light are the most comfortable machine made wigs available. Adjustable tabs at the nape and contoured ear tabs are characteristic of this cap as well.
What is Monofilament?
Monofilament Top with Lace Front
Mono Top with Lace Front wigs are produced the same as a Mono Top wig but utilizing a Lace Front as well to create the most natural front hairline in conjunction with the realistic characteristics of a Mono Top. This allows for amazing off the face styling versatility as well as the flexibility to part hair on the left or right or in the center to achieve multiple styling variations. These wigs offer the most natural and realistic appearance due to the combination of the Mono Top and Lace Front.
A Monofilament Top (Mono Top) is produced with an extremely sheer mesh used to make a transparent base that creates a realistic looking scalp area and is then hand knotted with individual fibres to simulate the appearance of natural hair growth.
The fibre in the Mono area also allows for multidirectional styling and parting the hair on the left, right or centre creating amazing styling versatility and resulting in an extremely natural looking appearance.
A Mono Top feels smoother against the scalp than a Traditional or Open Cap and more comfortable as a result. Often a Mono Top will have a polyurethane strip in the front of the mono area to help create a more secure fit.
Monofilament (Mono) is an extremely sheer mesh used to make a transparent base that creates a realistic looking scalp area and is then hand knotted with individual fibres to simulate the appearance of natural hair growth. A Monofilament Crown (Mono Crown) cap contains a Mono area in the top area of a machine-made cap.
This allows for the fibre in this area to have a more natural and realistic appearance and is often used on shorter wig styles in the crown or in the centre area of a style that is flatter and with less volume in the top.
Monofilament (Mono) is an extremely sheer mesh used to make a transparent base that creates a realistic looking scalp area and is then hand knotted with individual fibres to simulate the appearance of natural hair growth.
A Monofilament Part (Mono Part) cap contains a wide Mono Part area on a machine-made cap and allows the wearer to style a conventional part or a more fashionable zigzag part for the most realistic appearance.

Which type is best for me?
Human Hair itself is premium quality and is available in different types and grades to suit each individual need. However, these pieces do require styling after every wash and are prone to colour fade as per growing human hair. Human Hair wigs can also be heat styled to create your desired look with blow dryers, straighteners or heated rollers. Human Hair pieces can offer the nearest replica of style for clients looking for the most natural system.
There are two different types of base available for custom made hair, the dermalight and the derma lace.
The dermalight is breathable, secure and undetectable custom made solution
The dermalace is a new product and unlike the dermalight is made on an all over lace foundation offering an alternative base for a custom made human hair.
Cyber Hair is a world patented synthetic fibre that looks acts and feels like real hair. The product was developed as a durable alternative to human hair, offering hair that retain its colour and style when washed. Aftercare is essential as Cyberhair needs moisture to maintain its condition but the styling is taken care of with the unique memory system in the fibre strands. Cyberhair is most suited to the shorter styles as the fibre is prone to friction frizz on longer lengths and is also ideal for those who require grey hair.
