WIG CAP CONSTRUCTIONS

To choose a wig is to choose a lifestyle. When you look at a wig, you are not only looking at the hairs attached, you want to understand how they are made, with what kind of magic technologies can those hairs look so real. Here at UniWigs, we offer the highest quality wig products. We also make every effort to be informative and considerate. This is a detailed catalogue for our customers to understand what type of foundations (also referred to as caps) our wigs are attached to. Based on different materials used on a cap, we divide our wig constructions into the following categories. It is common to combine more than one material on a single cap.

BASIC CAPS

Historically, a wig is used for adding the volume of hair or to disguise baldness. For a long period of time, the foundation of a wig is made of net or mesh with hair wefts1 sewn on it. This is the oldest and most economic way to manufacture a wig. Therefore such wigs are the most durable and affordable.

Traditional
1. Summary: The most classic cap, added a net layer to the crown in order to maintain the shape of the wig.
2. Material: Flower net front, ultra-thin wefts, memory mesh base.
3. Crafts: Open wefts sewn on cap base, with a net layer overlapping the crown.
4. Features: Durable, stable, affordable.

Capless
1. Summary: It is called capless because it’s super light weight, almost undetectable.
2. Material: Memory mesh, ultra-thin wefts.
3. Crafts: Ultra thin wefts sewn on memory mesh, with open space in between the wefts.
4. Features: Lighter weight, airy, affordable.

Hand-tied Caps

As time goes by, classic weft-sewn wigs no longer meet wig wearers’ needs. They seek for more comfort and more natural looking. That’s where hand-tied2(also refers to as hand-knotted) caps come to sight. This type of cap involves a great amount of manpower hours, yet it offers a highly natural look, lighter weight, and super comfort.

Depending on different materials hairs are hand-knotted into, there are three types of construction fabrics used on UniWigs products: lace, monofilament, and silk. Each approach has its own features and meets various needs. And they are usually combined with each other or other materials due to high manpower demands and cost, such as wefts or stretchy mesh.

Lace base snuggles with scalp perfectly, it is soft, breathable, and can be freely combined with any other materials. Soft , snuggly, breathable, free parting, different colors available. 3-4 strands of hair knotted at each cross.
Monofilament: Parting in any directions desired, the base is invisible, natural-looking. Fixed shape, perfectly fit the shape of your crown, natural looking, free parting, transparent skin tone available. 1-2 strands of hair knotted at each cross.
Silk: Our highest end cap structure, most complicated crafts and looks most natural among all product lines, invisible knots, looks just like your own skin. Just like each strand of bio hair growing from your own scalp.

Note 1: To weave the root ends of the hair onto a warp of three silk threads to form a sort of fringe called a “weft”. The wefts are then sewn to a foundation made of net or other material.
Note 2: It is a fine handmade craft where artists use a small hook, which is called a “ventilating needle”, to knot a few strands of hair at a time directly to a suitable foundation material.
Note 3: Monofilament(refers to as mono hereinafter) is a type of fabric that is widely used in textile industry. For a wig construction usage, it is knitted into a mesh that is more delicate and more comfortable than lace closure when applied to scalp.

Glue or Glueless
When we put on a wig, it is expected that the wig WILL securely stay in place. No moving around, no falling off. We do not want to encounter any of those awkward moments where our little secret is revealed. For this purpose, skin-safe adhesives or hair pins are the easiest options. We also offer more efficient options with none or less adhesive. With our uniquely designed, tight and invisible combs and clips sewn on temples and back, and adjustable straps fastened around nape, you can keep a peaceful mind that your wig will always stay where it is.

Uniwigs MUST-KNOW INFO—HAIRPIECES (Part II)

So we will go on with the last section Part I by dialogue Question& Answer.

Q: How can I order the right color with my hair?
A: We can make custom color as your hair color. But you will be highly recommended to order the 60# white blonde or 613# platinum blonde which you can ask the hair dresser to dye the color as you like. This will be much easier and better to match with your hair.

Q: My hair color is kind of medium brown. But your website is only for black colors. Can I just order the Natural black and dye to the medium brown?
A: We don’t suggest you to order the natural black if your hair color is medium brown which is lighter. It will need to bleach the hair and this will damage the hair. So you can order the 613# platinum blonde and dye it directly.

Q: My wig sheds a lot. I only wear for two month.
A: I am so sorry to hear this problem. Can you please advise have you ever done treatment or how did you usually care it?

Q: Well, normally twice washing each month and I usually sleep by braiding after the washing.
A: Madam, we didn’t recommend that sleeping when the hair is wet. The wig is more durable if you use the wig stand and drying in the shade.

Q: This piece was suppose to have bleached knots and it didn’t have them.
A: Hi, madam. Sorry for the problem. You ordered the lace closures with Natural Black color. We normally bleach a little on them since firstly need to make sure the product quality. If the knots are bleached too much and you will have the shedding problem soon.

Q: Ok, so how can I fix this problem?
A: Madam, please put some foundation on the parting to be more natural. And that will cover the knots well.
Q: I will have a try then. Thank you very much.

Any other question, ask me freely!

wigs care tips

Here is some good styling treatment for you to care your lovely wigs, pls read carefully and do as it writes, then your wig will be nice for ever~!

wigs care
wigs care

1.The right attitude is key to pulling off any hairstyle. If you are constantly worrying or fidgeting with your wig ,it won’t look good. Own it! Walk tall, be confident and you will be able to pull off any look you want..
2.Take your wig to your hairstylist to have bangs cut or trimmed, shaped or thinned out to remove excess bulk. A custom cut can make a world of difference. Think of your wig like a designer suit. Sure, you can wear it off the rack (or out of the box) and it can look good, but with a little tailoring it can look GREAT!
3.If you want to extend the life of your wig and keep it looking beautiful the proper care products are essential. Synthetic wigs require care products specifically formulated for synthetic hair. For human hair wigs, choose sulfate-free care products or products specifically formulated for color treated hair to keep the color looking vibrant, longer.
4.You should always have two wigs ready to wear at all times.This way you always have something to wear when you are washing your wig and a back up if anything should happen to one. Rotating between wigs also helps to extend the life.
5.If you love to cook here is a tip every wig wearer should know; NEVER open the oven while wearing a synthetic wig! The sudden burst of heat will ruin your wig; even the hot steam from a boiling pot of water can cause irreparable damage.
Avoid these kitchen disasters. Swap your wig for a stylish scarf or comfy cap; better yet, kick back and let someone else do the dirty work.
6.Synthetic wigs with too much shine look fake and unnatural. To minimize shine, sprinkle a little hair powder on your wig, and then brush through for a more natural look.
7.Add a headband, scarf or any hair accessory to create a personal touch. Just because you are wearing a wig doesn’t mean you have to wear it the same way all the time. Be creative.

How to create a classic ponytail for special events

ponytail

 

After several events at the start of 2016, ponytails as a classic but fashion style appears everywhere like Grammy Awards and the Oscar. We can read the summery: the simplest, the most classic.

There are plenty of ways to add interest to a ponytail and keep it fresh on any length hair without the need for ribbons and accessories. Here are a few ideas on how to create a really chic finish that looks stunning from every angle.

1.Brush dry hair smooth and draw it into a high ponytail at the back of your head. Secure with a covered hairband (hairband), then wrap a piece of hair round the hairband to conceal it.1

2. Lift most of the ponytail up and under to form a loop held against the base of  the ponytail with your band. Use the remaining hair to wrap around both the loop and all of the hairband.2

3. Pin the loop in place underneath so it is secure and the pins don’t show.

4. The ponytail should look like this when you have finished

5. The free ends can be backbrushed to make a fantail and spritzed with hairspray to hold, if you like

6. Alternatively, make a ponytail low at the base of your neck and positioned slightly off-centre

7. Roll the tail back under itself and grip in place, leaving one piece of the ponytail free to then wrap round the base and conceal the join

Stylist’s note:
Always disguise a hairband (headband) by taking a small section of the ponytail and wrapping it round the hairband. Push a hairgrip (bobby pin) through the base to secure it.

UniWIgs monofilament wigs are on sale

Monofilament material is a thin gauze-like, nearly transparent material which is much more comfortable to the touch, little harder than the lace material. Hair strands are attached by hand-knotting to this material, one strand at a time, hence the term “mono-filament”. This allows the strands to swivel freely on base and so the monofilament wigs is more easily to be styled. This weaving technique also creates ventilation. Your monofilament wig will breathe while being worn, and this prevents heat and moisture buildup. The monofilament fabric itself is nearly transparent, and so takes on the approximate color of your own natural scalp, whatever shade that is. This amazing “chameleon” effect is another plus to the monofilament wig design. It has been said that a monofilament part is the most natural looking part in the wig industry, because it bares the natural scalp color of the wearer, it is very popular by the users in the market.
monofilament wig construction

Monofilament wigs usually use 100% human hair material, and because of the material itself and the hand-knotting method, monofilament wigs will give the illusion of natural hair growth since the sheerness of the fabric at the scalp blends in with the actual color of the skin, making the wigs virtually undetectable. The monofilament construction ensures that even if the wig hair is styled and parted in a different direction, the wig’s construction will not be revealed. Combined, the thinness of the fabric and the sheer color will make you forget you are wearing a wig at all!

hand-knotting  method

At the same time, as monofilament wigs are light weighted, comfortable and easy to style, these wigs are considered the best choice for women suffering partial or even complete hair loss. It will be extremely important if your hair loss is caused by medical illness and your scalp is more sensitive to weight and temperature. So don’t be hesitate, monofilament is the best only choice!

 

UniWigs now is holding a big sale on their high-quality monofilament wigs. Come and save up to $180 on your favorite mono wig. Never miss a single chance to take a great wig home 🙂
