Machine Made Wefted
Machine made wigs account for the biggest proportion of wigs sold today, they have become lighter in weight due to different types of constructions, many of our wigs have capless tops to reduce the weight yet further. Our ready made synthetic wefted wigs are available in an extensive range of colours and styles all in top quality fade resistant fibre are excellent value. Easy wear and care make the Wigs & Pieces range of wigs, the best value wigs money can buy. Most styles have thin weftings to avoid that bulky look. The fibres are soft and pliable and move more easily than real hair. As synthetic fibres hold their style and shape, your wig will require less attention than your own hair would do.
Monofilament Top wigs
Monofilament top wigs are fast becoming best sellers with wigs and pieces, as they offer a more natural transparent top and hand tied baby hair or under knotting of the front gives a realistic hairline to the wig. Hairs are individually hand tied into an invisible micro mesh foundation giving a similar appearance to that of natural hair growth even under close scrutiny. They are extremely cool and light weight and very undetectable compared to the machine made wefted wigs. Monofilament top wigs have specific taping areas (for the use of medical double sided tape) at the front and sometimes at the ear tabs and back which provides the wearer with added security when worn. Monofilament top wigs are truly a significant advancement over machine made wigs but due to the hand tied work take much longer to manufacture, therefore the cost of these are more expensive than the normal machine made wefted wig. Some of our Monofilament tops are single layered like the Noriko wigs and others are double layered. Each Wig company have their own defined construction that differs with each manufacturer.
Machine made wefted
Machine made wefted wigs have adjustable Velcro fasteners or hook & eye fasteners which allow you to adjust the fit. Wefts are single rows of fibre or hair that makes up the construction of machine wefted wigs.
Fully hand made monofilament
Fully hand made monofilament wigs or as they are often called bespoke or custom made wigs have an excellent fit due to them being manufactured to your specific head shape but also can be taped anywhere around the invisible skin perimeter giving the ultimate security. We can recommend this personal service although we do not do bespoke pieces, we know of several companies that do and we can advise you accordingly.
It is what is says...hand-tied, these wigs are delicately hand-made, every thread is single threaded, hence the naturalness of these wigs. Some of them are 100% hand-tied and some have a hand-tied crown. A few of the brands may do a hand-tied crown and include a wefted back, if you are unsure of the wigs contruction, please call us on 01964 631199 for more information.
Lace Top wigs are machine made and the tops have fibre sewn in to the lace construction, which is great for short spiky and full styled wigs. Often teasing or back-combing of the fibre is seen at the rooted area.
The lace front wigs have an infinity beyond the front hairline of the wig. Often it is a protrusion of approx 1inch (2.54cms) that is left for you the customer to adjust by trimming or folding under the hairline. This must not be trimmed if you are returning the wig. It gives a very natural-look to the hairline and because this area is hand-made you really cannot define the wig's hairline.
