About Wigs

When selecting a wig, you want it to look natural, fit properly and be comfortable. To this end wig makers have devised innovative and diverse manufacturing techniques to make wigs. Synthetic wigs now look as natural or almost as natural as human hair wigs and they actually have a wider variety of styles and colors. Wigs come in three sizes and almost all wigs now have some sort of adjustable tabs to assure the wearer a good fit. The area that most affects the wearer and that has the most diversity is wig comfort.

A wig's comfort is primarily determined by what the base or cap is made of and how the hair is attached to this base. For example, a hand made or hand tied wig has the fibers hand sewn into the cap, allowing easy styling and parting and making the wig very lightweight. A machine made wig has the fibers sewn into wefts in the cap sometimes causing the wig to be stiff and uncomfortable. Capless wigs are flexible, light and airy and usually have a mesh lace designed for comfort. Some wigs have a cap that contains 'artificial skin' which molds to the shape of the head and uses the bodies heat to help adhere to the scalp.

One of the most desirable of wig types is the monofilament wig. It's one step above the hand tied wig and comes the closest to looking like real hair. It gives the appearance that the hair is actually growing from the scalp. Each hair or fiber is tied into an ultra fine sheer mesh base. The cap is specially woven to allow for comfort and excellent ventilation. With a monofilament top, the hair appears to be growing out of the scalp. Monofilament wigs can be styled in any direction and parted any way you like. If you wear a wig every day, the Monofilament wig's comfort, superior wearability and natural look more than justify its cost. Both synthetic and human hair wigs offer the monofilament as an option. However, a monofilament human hair wig is the ultimate wig type. It looks natural. It is cool and comfortable. And, it can be styled and treated like your own hair.

"I am always amazed at how upbeat and wonderful our customers are! Especially when they are going through what is probably the hardest time of their lives. I love talking with these women, and am touched when someone takes the time to write and thank us. All letters are greatly appreciated and touch me deeply, but the first thank you letter I received (in 1995) is especially moving. I framed this letter and it has hung in my office all these years. It is the first one below, included in it’s entirety."
