Lace Wig Cap Construction Design
Glueless Lace Wig
This cap is very similar to the "lace with adjustable strap in the back". With both caps, glue is not needed. The main difference between the two caps is that this glueless cap has more reinforcement by the temples. You can also have your glueless cap made with a silk top panel.
Silk Top Lace Wig
The silk top panel can be added to glueless lace wig caps, lace fronts with adjustable strap in the back and full lace wigs. Forget trying to hide or camouflage the knots at the hairline! The knots are completely hidden so you can confidently wear your unit, even without a wig cap! The silk base basically does what the wig cap would- it creates the illusion of a scalp. The silk top base is placed on the top of the cap as shown above. For the best coverage, we recommend a full silk base unit.
Full Lace With Stretch in Middle
This cap construction is the most popular choice because you can glue around the full perimeter and still have some stretch in the middle for a proper fit. Almost all of our clients choose stretch in the middle for this purpose. The stretch will not give you a different size (stretching from a small to a large size cap), but it will extend your usability if your measurements are not exact.
Lace Front with Adjustable Strap in Back
Not planning on gluing your unit down on the full perimeter? With this cap, glue is only applied at the front hairline. The strap in the back can be adjusted for fit. The front is made with Swiss or French lace and the back of the unit is made with Stretch Lace. The entire unit is hand-tied and does not have wefts in the back like beauty supply store wigs.
Full Silk Lace Base
Forget trying to hide or camouflage your knots! The knots are completely hidden so you can confidently wear your unit and wear without a wig cap! The silk base basically does what the wig cap would- it creates the illusion of a scalp. You can confidently part anywhere on the cap as the hair looks like it is literally growing out of your scalp. The full silk base is the best choice if you have your own hair to cover!
Full Lace With No Stretch
You can have your cap made with no stretch. Clients who choose this typically have their measurements down to a T. If you are covering your own hair, please remember that your cap size adjusts slightly due to hair growth and texture changes. In this case, having no stretch would not be a great option. The seams on cap designs with no stretch are sealed either with a polyurethane seal or hand sewn (as is pictured). If you are particular of one over the other, you should specify your choice in the comments field of the custom order form.
Full Thin Skin
This is not really a comfortable choice if you do not have hair loss. It can be very hot! People who choose this cap typically have allergies to the lace materials. You can choose thin skin 1) on the full perimeter 2) on the back perimeter only 3) on the front perimeter only or 4) a full thin skin cap.
