Wigs come in a variety of cuts, colors and styles. And beyond just their appearance on top, underneath the hair wig caps are constructed using a variety of materials. Some are more natural looking, while others are more comfortable and affordable. There are different benefits of different wig caps. Here is a breakdown in the most popular cap types and their associated benefits.
A traditional wig cap is fully wefted (rows of hair fibers sewn into the cap) and features a closed crown, which adds volume around the crown area. An open cap is also wefted, but features open panels around the crown to provide some ventilation and a little lighter weight. Another take on the open cap design is the lace front open cap, which combines the cool, comfortable wearability of an open cap with the more natural looking hairline of a lace front.

Monofilament caps are one of the most popular due to their comfortable yet sheer cap construction. The sheer fabric used in monofilament designs is both soft on sensitive skin, which makes it good for those undergoing medical treatments, and it provides a natural appearance. Hair can be parted and any underlying natural hair can blend in seamlessly. A lace front monofilament cap makes the wig appear even more seamless along the hairline.
The most natural looking cap is hand-tied, which can be paired with a monofilament or lace front cap. Each hand-tied hair fiber mimics the natural growth patterns of hair, adding fluid movement and flexible parting. These wig caps can also be stretched without losing shape, thus they fit a wide variety of head shapes and sizes.
