No, wigs come in several sizes and it is best to have a professional take measurements prior to purchasing your wig. Many brands offer styles in ultra petite, petite, average, large and extra large. Most styles are available in average. Not every style will come in every size. By learning your size, you can quickly narrow down your shopping options by ruling out wigs that would not fit. Consultations are free and include measuring.I’ve seen different types of Wig Caps. What are the differences?
There are five types of wig caps, and it is good to know which might suit your lifestyle and needs. When selecting your wig, it is wise to try on a few styles and a few brands to discover which type is best for you. Each cap will vary slightly from brand to brand.
The standard cap is the heaviest but it is also the most durable option. It has a closed flower net lace top and open wefting on the sides. The caps are made from a cotton-based material and the layers of hair are machine-sewn in. The style of this wig is pre set and the crown is often teased so that you cannot see through the hair to the cap. This teasing helps disguise the wig cap, as well as provide the wearer with extra volume at the crown.
The capless wigs are very common and usually very affordable. The crown, back and sides sport open wefting so the piece is light and well ventilated.
The monofilament cap is made from a thin, breathable nylon or polyester mesh material at the crown to create the illusion of scalp/skin. Since the scalp shows through the cap, the wearer enjoys a natural look. The hair is hand tied at the crown and may be parted and brushed in any direction.
The hand-tied caps are excellent for people with hair loss and are very well suited for wearers with a sensitive scalp as it is a very comfortable option. The cap is mesh based and the strands of hair are hand tied. This design provides ample ventilation and is very light weight.
The lace front caps create the most natural look available, but this clever design does make it the most expensive option. The hairline is so natural in appearance the wearer can even wear the hair up and off their face. This cap is not durable and requires more care. Wearers would benefit from using tape or wig adhesive to secure the wig in place.
