Wearing a wig is so much more than picking your favourite hairstyle, hair texture, or the hair colour that suits your skin tone. You also need to know about the wig cap construction that is best for you.
The technology around wig making has dramatically evolved over the years from the time where wig wearers used to worry about the unnatural look that came with wearing a wig to recent times, where a wig gives a natural-looking finish.
The main difference between an artificial-looking wig, and one that gives an illusion of hair growing out of your hairline, is the cap construction type. Each cap type has its pros and cons that could give you a distinct look and feel.
Wig caps are the base materials of a wig that mimics the shape of the head. A wig cap is the wig’s foundation, and the human hair weft is attached to it. There are five types of cap styles: lace front wigs, monofilament wigs, 100% hand-tied wigs, lace wigs, and traditional weft wigs.
What is a full lace wig cap?
A full lace wig cap is also referred to as a 100% hand-tied wig. They are the premium options of wig cap types. The entire cap base, crown, front, back, and sides are entirely hand-tied, giving you a natural-looking hairstyle.
A full lace wig cap style gives you the freedom to style your wigs in updos or high ponytails as it has lace all around the perimeter. A hand-tied wig can come in several forms, including;
- Glueless full lace wig; this full lace cap with stretch is equipped with fitted lace in the front and adjustable straps in the back. This cap style is suitable for use without glue or adhesives, and it doesn't give room for hairstyles such as updos or high ponytails.
- Glued full lace wig; this cap style is glued to your hairline, giving the illusion of a natural hairline. A glued full lace wig is the mother of versatility; you can make deep parts through the unit or style it in a ponytail to suit your persona.
Can a full lace wig cap be sewn on?
No, a full lace wig cap cannot be sewn on. It is worn as a glueless wig with adjustable straps or as a glued wig, held down by adhesives.
Recently, many women opt for the 100% hand-tied wig cap from LarweHair to enjoy the versatility that comes with an all-round lace perimeter.
