Wig technology has come a long way! But while wig-wearers are familiar with the many innovations that make it nearly impossible to tell the difference between wigs and natural hair, non-users may still be wary. Here, we break down the features that give wigs their authentic look—giving newbies the confidence to finally try them.
Lace Front Caps features fibers individually hand-tied to a sheer lace material, providing natural movement and an invisible hairline that blends seamlessly with your scalp. Running temple-to-temple (and even ear-to-ear), the lace allows for styling off-the-face (just as you do your own hair).
Mono Top Caps are constructed of individual strands hand-tied to a breathable MONOFILAMENT material. This technique mimics natural hair’s growth and movement, offering the same parting flexibility as biological hair.
Heat-friendly Fibers: “Stylability” is what makes a wig your own—and makes it more believable. 100% HUMAN HAIR wigs can be styled just like your own hair; and our EnvyHair™️ blend of 30% human hair and 70% heat-friendly synthetic hair can be blow-dried, straightened or curled up to 285° F just like human hair (while lasting even longer).
100% Kanekalon Fiber: This modacrylic fiber was introduced to the world in 1957 and set the standard for Synthetic wigs. It has a soft, human-hair like texture and is renowned for holding its shade, shape, and shine.
Multidimensional Colorations: Today’s tone-on-tone techniques create the variegated color of natural hair and include HIGHLIGHTED shades and ROOTED colorations—darker roots with a medium base and highlights.
Custom-Fit Adjustments include FLEXIBLE EAR TABS that let you personalize your wig’s placement; and VELCRO TABS and BUCKLES that let you customize the circumference.
A better fit = a more believable look. As does choosing a style best suited to your face shape. When you know the features to look for, you can confidently join the wig community and the new era of creativity and self-expression.
