Monofilament wigs offer a unique combination of versatility and durability. A monofilament wig creates the illusion of natural hair growth and allows for multidirectional styling while also providing a cool, smooth feel against the scalp for long-lasting comfort.
Monofilament is a sheer mesh made of strong synthetic fiber. In wigs, monofilament is used as a translucent segment – the part area or the entire crown – of a wig cap. Hairs are individually hand-tied to the monofilament segment of the cap, so each hair can swivel freely in any direction, creating natural hair movement. This mobility also allows the hair to be parted and styled in any direction.
Sometimes referred to as a “mono top” or “skin top,” a translucent monofilament crown simulates natural hair growth from the scalp. Since each hand-tied hair is anchored to an individual spot on the monofilament, and since the monofilament is so sheer, it looks like follicular growth, even close up.
