Cap Construction Guide

Here at Images Wigs, we know that when shopping for a wig, it can be over whelming and confusing at times. Especially when trying to decide on Cap Construction. Well here is some information on each type of construction to help you.

Cap Constructions as follows:

Capless Construction:

A Capless construction gives the effect of the natural scalp. This allows the wearer to have versatility with parting, and styling of the wig. The crown is constructed by vertical lace strips with open spaces between wefts. These openings allow a lighter and more breathable cap construction. If you are on to always be hot or live in an area with the climate usually being hot, Capless is great for helping you stay cool, and confident. Capless is one of our most popular Cap Constructions, here at Images Wigs. 

Monofilament Cap (also called mono tops):

A Monofilament Cap Construction has a fine mesh that allows the color of the scalp to show through making it to look extremely natural. The mesh is breathable and is the gentlest on the scalp. Each individual strand of hair is hand tied to the monofilament. It is this individual attachment process that is being referred to in the name Monofilament.

Weft or Lace Front:

A Weft or Lace Front Cap Construction have a lace section at the crown (refers to top rear portion of

the head) allowing the wearer to part the wig to either side or brush the hair in any direction. Broader spacing between each individual weft indicates construction techniques known as “thin wefted”. The wider the gap between wefts the greater the wig's ability to breathe and disperse heat, this construction is very common in the wig industry.

¾ Caps or Fall Wigs:

¾ Caps or Fall Wigs are approximately ¾ of the size of a full cap and is usually constructed using the

wefted technique. They are designed to allow the wearer to use their own hair to show at the front and on the sides as far back as the ears. Some may come with a head band or band of fabric along the front of the piece to create a break between color of the wig or hair piece and the color of the wearer's own hair. This allows for very natural look all day confident look.

Pure Stretch Cap Construction:

A Pure Stretch Cap Construction have a soft, elastic construction. Pure Stretch caps are very comfortable, due to the soft elastic, light-weight, breathable cap wig construction.
