 *The wig caps described below might have a slight variation from supplier to supplier.  However, this is a very good description overall, and wil give you a good idea of what cap you might prefer.

Often, people get confused when it comes to how to use a wig cap or how to choose the best wig cap to wear. But, it’s really quite simple. Just as with wig colors and styles, you also have a few different cap options available. The wig cap is where the synthetic fibers or human hairs are attached to create the wig. Cap construction has come a long way over the years, and now offer more comfortable and secure options to cause little to no irritation of the scalp. The new cap constructions are also more durable than before and provide a realistic look. When choosing your wig, take the cap into consideration to ensure you’re fully satisfied with your wig. Here’s a short wig cap tutorial to help you learn about the different types of caps. 


 

MONOFILAMENT

1.) Double Monofilament 2.) Open Cap 3.) Polyurethane Strip 4.) Ear Tabs 5.) Adjustable Tabs


Monofilament caps are another popular option as they hold a soft layer of material for comfort. Monofilament caps offer the illusion that the hair has grown naturally from the scalp when parted as each hair is hand-tied to a sheer base. The cap is perfect for parting the hair and styling versatility. Some monofilaments can be single mono or double mono.  Some like the double mono as they think it is softer (think of 2-ply vs. 1-ply); however, some women like the single mono as they think it is cooler.  I cannot tell the difference.  BUT monofilament crown will allow for the parting to be changed and does not show the teasing of a classic wig. The OPEN CAP allows for cooling ventilation and the POLY STRIP can be used for tape or adhesive. The EAR and ADJUSTTABLE TABS allow the wearer to customize the fit.  SEE: Jon Renau Nita, Hillary, Jenny, Bowie;  Raquel Welch Beguile, Excite, Infatuation.

LACE FRONT/OPEN CAP

1.) Lace Front 2.) Open Cap 3.) Velvet Ear Tabs 4.) Adjustable Tabs


Lace front caps provide a natural looking front hairline as each hair is hand-tied to the sheer lace section in the front of the cap. This allows the wig to be styled away from the face. However, the lace is very delicate, therefore, it will need to be handled with care. 35% OF SOMETHING GREAT IS BETTER THAN 0% OF SOMETHING GREAT. And that says it all. The mono part allows some movement of your part but not a great deal. However, comparing apples to apples, the mono part usually sells for less. The OPEN CAP allows for cooling ventilation and the POLY STRIP can be used for tape or adhesive. The EAR and ADJUSTABLE TABS allow the wearer to customize the fit.

This cap is wonderful in that people can slightly see my scalp and I can change the part to any direction even zig-zag.  The SMART LACE looks like a natural hairline as eachhair is hand tied one by one. Let your hair blow and your wig will still look and feel like natural hair.  The OPEN CAP allows for cooling ventilation and the POLY STRIP can be used for tape or adhesive.  The EAR and ADJUSTABLE TABS allows the wearer to customize the fit.

LACE FRONT/MONOFILAMENT/HAND TIED

MONOFILAMENT/HAND TIED 

1.) Swiss Lace Hairline 2.) Double Monofilament 3.) 100% Hand Tied Cap 4.) Velvet Ear Tabs 5.) Adjustable Tabs


The Monofilament top allows a natural looking hair growth. The monofilament top can be parted in multidirectional directions and has no perm tease.  The Hand Tied body of the cap completes the excellence as each hair is individually hand tied and moves like natural growth. Hand-tied caps offer wig fibers free movement, creating the most natural movement when compared to other caps. Each hair on the cap is carefully hand-tied to the base and is often the preferred option for those who have a sensitive scalp or hair loss. Hand-tied caps are among the most comfortable and softest caps on the market. With this cap, you’re able to comb and style the hair in any direction. The EAR and ADJUSTABLE TABS allow the wearer to customize the fit.

OPEN CAP 

1.) Open Cap 2.) Ear Tabs 3.) Adjustable Tabs


Open cap wigs are often referred to as “capless wigs” because they are extremely light weight, maintain full ventilation, and feel cool. The open construction allows for a secure fit while being extremely lightweight.  The EAR and ADJUSTABLE TABS allow the wearer to customize the fit. See: Jon Renau Jazz, Bree, Angelique, Blair, Natalie. Raquel Welch Boost, Breeze, Embrace, Heart Throb. Gabor Belle, Devotion, Perfection

TRADITIONAL CAP 

1.) Traditional Cap 2.) Open Cap 3.) Ear Tabs 5.) Adjustable Tabs


This cap is the most affordable and durable option and it can have more volume at the crown as the top is fully lined usually with lace for added coverage. The open cap allows for ventilation for additional comfort. The EAR and ADJUSTABLE TABS allow the wearer tocustomize the fit.  See Jon Renau Allure, Jessica.

  MEMORY CAP

A memory cap is a special cap that replaces the wide stretch lace for a thinner look. Plus, the material is more resilient and tends to hold to the head better for a more secure fit. Although the material is more durable, it remains light weight for added comfort.

 

No matter the type of cap you choose, all caps are secured and worn basically the same, so there’s no need to learn how to put on a new wig cap should you choose to purchase a different cap type than you’re accustom to. However, there are special tips and tricks you can use for different cap types, which you’re able to find with our wig cap tutorial.

Take the time to determine which type of wig cap will meet your needs the best, while giving you the exact look you want to hold your head up high with confidence!
