How To Choose The Right Wig Cap

Choose the right wig cap

In addition to choosing a great style and color for your ready-to-wear hair, it’s equally as important to select the right wig cap. The cap is the part of the wig that’s actually on your head and that the hair is attached to. Finding the right wig cap is critical to ensure you are comfortable in your wig. At Woman in Disguise we only offer high quality and comfortable wig caps that are meant to give you a confident fit and breathability. Your decision is to choose the wig cap that meets your style flexibility preferences.

So, how do you determine which wig cap is right for you?

The Effortless

The Effortless wig cap is truly effortless which means the hair will fall exactly the same way every time you wear her. This wig cap is made of soft and comfortable materials so that it doesn’t cause any discomfort while it’s on your head.

The Essential

The Essential wig cap is like our Effortless cap, in that it’s made soft material. It has comfortable, breathable wefting that allows air to flow through the cap so it stays feeling fresh all day. This wig cap’s front is made from hand-strung lace. A hand-strung lace front gives you a great natural looking hairline, and it doesn’t cause any discomfort while you wear her.

The Essentials Plus

The Essentials Plus gives you the beautiful look with a lace front that provides a natural looking hairline. While similar to our Essential cap, what makes this the Plus is that you also get that hand strung area that gives you a very natural looking part through the part line.

The Ultimate

The Ultimate Wig Cap structure really matters for two primary reasons.

First reason is comfort. The Ultimate Wig Cap has a very nice soft top, and it is machine wefted. At Woman in Disguise, we only offer wig caps that use soft materials and wefting which gives you breathability and keeps you cooler. This wig cap also provides maximum styling flexibility.

Second reason is its structure has a beautiful lace front hairline, which looks like a natural hairline. The Ultimate Wig Cap also has a mono top which means you can put the part wherever you want to. It’s hand strung, and meant to look like a real natural hairline. This gives you flexibility to pull the bangs back, or put them to one side or the other. Part where you’d like and then the rest of the hair blends in and meets with the mono top.

Every cap is great in their own way!

All our wig caps are adjustable so you can find the best fit for your head, and you can adjust if one day you need it a bit looser and the next day a bit tighter.

Woman In Disguise does the first step for you by only offering high quality and comfortable wig caps. Now you can feel confident choosing the right wig cap for your styling preferences.

To Buy Synthetic or a Real Hair Wig- What You Need To Consider

If you’re trying to decide whether to buy synthetic or a year hair wig, here are some things you need to consider. Both styles are great, however one style may be better for you and your lifestyle.

Synthetic Wigs:

Synthetic hair wigs can easily look beautiful and natural with no effort. The major benefit to synthetic wigs is that they travel wonderfully. You can put them in a suitcase or a travel bag, and they are going to maintain their shape. They are very low maintenance wigs. Whatever style they come in is the style they stay throughout their usage life. I love synthetic wigs which is why we focus on offering you high quality, like-real synthetic wigs.

Synthetic Wig Pros are:

Easy Care: Because synthetic wigs have something called “style retention” they rarely have to be styled. You typically simply wash, dry and then shake them out, and the wig will return to its initial style.
Large Color Selection: The sky is the limit where colors are concerned. You can choose from an array of natural colors, as well as several fantasy colors.
Cost: Synthetic wigs are relatively inexpensive compared to their real hair counterparts.
Natural Looking: It is very difficult to tell the difference between a high quality synthetic wig and a human hair wig.

Synthetic Wig Cons are:

Shine: Some budget or economy synthetic wigs (typically those under $100) may have an unnatural shine. Luckily, at Women in Disguise we only have high quality synthetic wigs.
Longevity: To get the longest life from your synthetic wig it is critical to care for her properly. Care mishaps like applying heat via blow drying or curling will ruin your wig.
Less Versatility: It’s not as easy to straighten or curl synthetic wigs with heated styling tools unless it is a specifically designed “heat friendly” version. Even heat friendly synthetic wigs will not restyle like real hair wigs.
Cannot Change Color: Re-coloring will not work on synthetic wigs as traditional hair color does not adhere to the fibers.

Real Hair Wigs:

Unlike synthetic wigs, you can style and apply heat to real hair wigs. At Woman in Disguise we use high quality real hair that is healthy, so that you can choose to style in whatever way you like.

That being said, real hair wigs will come looking like your natural hair does, and like natural hair they require more maintenance than synthetic pre-styled wigs. If you’re someone who likes to change the style of your hair often then a real hair wig may be for you! A high-quality real hair wig is a significant investment which is why we offer real hair options through our custom order process. If you want more information please contact us here.

Real Hair Wig Pros are:

Adaptability: Human hair wigs can be straightened or curled whenever you want, just like your own hair. I recommend that you do not color your real hair wig. The hair has been processed and you cannot predict how the hair will color.
Naturalness: Human hair wigs are going to look and feel completely natural.
Durability: High quality human hair wigs cared for properly can last for years.
Texture: Human hair wigs come in the same variety of textures as real hair: curly, natural, thin, thick, straight, wavy, etc. If you choose a human hair wig, you’ll almost always be able to find something that matches your natural hair.

Real Hair Wig Cons are:

Styling: Human hair wigs can be hard work to maintain. They take effort and skill to style.
Upkeep: Like with natural hair, these wigs need to be washed, conditioned and restyled regularly to maintain their natural luster.
Environment: Human hair wigs will respond to humidity and other environmental elements like our real hair.
Cost: Because they’re made from real human hair, these wigs will be more than the cost of a synthetic wig. Length is one of the key factors of cost.
Delicate: Human hair wigs incur damage from brushing, washing, teasing, heat application, etc. Proper care is important including using care products formulated for wigs.

So, which type of wig is best for you? Hopefully some of these tips have helped you make an informed decision regarding which wig is best for you to purchase a real hair wig or synthetic hair wig! Let me know in the comments below and then start shopping!
