Glueless Cap – These are the newest style full lace wig cap available. Constructed with a strap in the back and elastic around the circumference add to secures the wig while wearing.


A Silk Top wig – A silk top wig consists of a layer of lace, and silk fabric on the top front of the cap. When the hair is knotted, the knots are below the silk concealed between the layers, the hair is then injected through the silk material making the knots 100% invisible giving the illusion that the hair is actually growing out of your scalp. There is no other ventilation technique that creates a more flawless appearance than hidden knots on a silk top, you don’t need to bleach the knots, you don’t need to worry about any other techniques to make the knots invisible or less visible.

Wefted Wigs – The vast majority are also known as “capless” wigs. They are constructed from rows of wefts (fringes) of synthetic ber or human hair that have been sewn together into the shape of a cap, but do not have an underlying solid cap, per se. The more expensive wefted wigs feature a lace inset at the crown which allows the wearer to part the wig and brush the strands in any direction.

A “thin wefted” wig will usually have the rows of wefts spaced farther apart, which makes the wig lighter and more “breathable.” A thin wefted wig will often lack the lace inset at the crown. The downside of this is that sometimes the underlying wefting can be seen when the wig is parted on top. An extreme example of thin wefting is a costume wig which can have wefts spaced very far apart, sometimes to the point that the wearer’s own hair will show through.
