Wig Buyer's Guide


1.Follow the principles when selecting wigs

This article is written mainly for customers who're new to wigs and who're unclear about wigs. When choosing a wig, we usually follow principle listed below- hair cut, cap size, cap construction, hair types, color and craftsmanship.


2.Cut

Cut refers to the haircut of the wig. Wigsu let you narrow down you search by length, hair texture and hair style.

❶Length

Wigsu defines 6"-12" hair length of wigs as short wigs, 12"-18" as mid-length wigs, 18" and above as long wigs.

❷Hair texture

Although there're many types of descriptions on hair texture, we find it hard and meaningless to distinguish the curls and waves. So our site divides the hair texture into two types- straight and wavy/curly.

❸Hair Style

Hairstyle means the haircut of the wig. And it can be divided into- bobs, pixies, layered, with bangs and without bangs.


3.Cap Size

Taking into consideration that average size tend to fit 95% of customers and the fact that all the caps that are provided by Wigsu have adjustable straps that give up to 1/2" so that you can achieve a comfortable and secure fit. We decide to make the cap size average only. Below is the measurement of the cap size.

Cap Size Small Medium Large
Clrcumference 21.5" 22.5" 23.5"
Front to nape 13.5" 14.5" 15.5"
Ear to ear across forehead 11" 11.5" 12"
Ear to ear over top 12" 12.5" 13"
Temple to temple around back 14.5" 15" 15.5"
Nape of neck 5" 5.5" 6"


4.Cap Construction

Let’s learn some basic knowledge about wigs. It all begins with the wig base, referred to as a cap. This is the material to which the hair is attached in order to create the wig. While so many websites use "cap construction" on wigs, we prefer to add one essential factor-  the craftsmanship on making this wig, which can be divided into two parts-hand made wigs and machine made wigs. And in market, there're usually capless wigs, lace wigs(can be divided into two types-lace front wigs and full lace wigs), monofilament wigs(can be divided into monofilament top wigs, monofilament top lace front wigs, 100% hand-tied monofilament top lace front wigs). And we'll have a detailed introduction to the cap types.

❶Traditional Cap Construction

Capless wigs or basic cap wigs Lace Front wigs Full lace wigs

1. Capless wigs or basic cap wigs are all machine-made.

2.The netting is easily noticeable and the pivotal point top-the center of this kind of wig(where is the joint of the hair) is not natural-looking.

3.the hair can't be parted. Otherwise people will see the cap where the hair is parted.

4. And the other factor is that the hair may fall out, for it is machine-made.

1.Lace Front wigs are hand-tied lace front part (each hair is individually hand-tied to the lace part, the width of lace part is usually 2.5 inches) combined with machine-made open weft.

2.The only function of the front lace part is to create the natural-looking hairline (mainly for haircuts without front bangs).

3. Considering the fact that lace front wigs just have a very small area of hand-tied lace part in the front, so it can't solve the problems as capless wigs either.

1.Full lace wigs are a kind of high-end wigs. It's a kind of 100% hand-tied (each hair is individually hand-tied to the sheer lace cap) wig and the ventilation is great.

2.Compared with machine-made wigs, full lace wigs are better knit and more comfortable to wear.

3. And there'll be no possibility that the hair can easily fall out, because 100% hand-tied wigs are more durable than other types of wigs.

4. This is why full lace wigs cost more money and time than other types of wigs.

❷Wigsu Cap Construction

Monofilament is a new kind of material that can be used in wigs for its great features in the simulation of human scalp. Below are the advantages of monofilament cap construction

1. It makes the cap natural-looking and as real as human scalp, so that it can offer the most realistic scalp appearance and create the illusion of the natural hair growth from the scalp where the hair is parted.

2. And a full mono top allows for parting & styling versatility.

3. The monofilament material does no harm to human skin at all.

4. The fact that the each hair is individually hand-tied to the monofilament base makes the wig better-knit than traditional wig caps.

5. It has the same fine ventilation as full lace wigs.

6.Because of its excellent features mentioned above, monofilament is widely used in high-end wigs.

7. And all the wigs made by Wigsu are with an area of hand-tied 5 Inches×5 Inches monofilament top, which is a far larger area than the traditional hand-tied lace front area (width 2.5 Inches).

8. And all the wigs in Wigsu can be divided into three types-monofilament top wigs, hand-tied monofilament top lace front wigs and 100% hand-tied monofilament top lace front wigs.

For more detailed information. Please refer to the pictures and illustrations on the different monofilament caps.

1. This kind of cap construction used in Wigsu.com is mainly for short hairstyles with front bang, which cover the natural hairline.

2. And the back machine-made open weft and the big monofilament top part provide the fine ventilation.

3. But if you want to have more DIY hairstyles for your wigs, we highly recommend you to select a wig with the lace front part.

1. This cap construction is mainly used in Wigsu for hairstyles without bang.

2. The only difference from the monofilament top cap is that it adds one hand-tied lace part (width 1.5 inches) in the front to create the natural hairline. And it offers more DIY hairstyles for customers.

1.This cap construction can be said as a perfect cap for wigs. For it has all the fine qualities a high-end wig should have.

5.Hair Type

There’re three kinds of hair in Wigsu-remy human hair, human hair and synthetic hair. And we can promise that human hair wigs are made of 100% human hair- we don’t&nbsp add synthetic hair to human hair wigs. Below is the illustration of the features of different hair types.

Synthetic Hair Human Hair  Remy Human Hair

1. Offers a look and feel quite similar to human hair.

2. Virtually indistinguishable from human hair.

3. Easier to care for and lower priced than human hair wigs.

4. Offers limited styling versatility (hot tools cannot be used).

5. Less durable than human hair — 4-6 months with proper care.

1. Offers the most natural look and feel.

2. Typically more expensive than synthetic hair

3. Can be cut, styled, permed or colored to suit your personal taste.

4. More durable than synthetic wigs.

1. Regarded as the finest elite quality human hair.

2.Stronger, healthier and less likely to tangle than the ordinary human hair because the cuticle is still intact.

3. Gives you the option to cut, curled, straightened or dyed just like your own hair.

 6.Color

Different websites have different color charts. And Wigsu select 12 most popular colors for human hair and synthetic hair each. Which we think is our innovation, because we find that even the same color number to be different between human hair and synthetic hair. For example the human hair color #4 looks different from synthetic hair color#4. This is why we decide to select two color charts-one for human hair and one for synthetic hair. And the pictures shown in the color chart is as accurate as the real colors are. So please feel free to select wigs and hair extensions. If you're new to wearing wigs, when determining the color, you should select colors as close as your real hair color. And you should consider staying close to your natural shade to ease the transition. Below is the color chart of wigsu.

 7.Craftsmanship

According to the craftsmanship on making wigs, wigs can be divided into two types- hand-tied wigs and machine-made wigs. Hand-tied wigs means that the hair are hand-tied to the cap and machine-made wigs means that the hair are sewn by machine to the cap. Compared with machine-made wigs, hand-tied wigs have the advantages which are listed below:

Hand-tied wigs are more natural-looking than machine-made wigs.

Hand-tied wigs are more durable than machine-made wigs, because each hair of hand-tied wigs is individually hand tied to the cap and there'll be less possibility that the hair may fall out. So hand-tied wigs can last a far longer time than machine-made wigs. 

Hand-tied wigs can give the natural hairline(lace front wigs) and natural parting line(monpfilament wigs), which machine-made wigs can't provide.

Hand-tied wigs are a perfect choice if you ragard quality as an important factor.

And we'll have a brief introduction to the craftsmanship on different types of wigs in market:

Capless wigs or basic cap wigs: This kind of wigs is totally made by machine. The hair are sewn by machine to the cap and for a sensitive scalp, capless wigs are not a good choice.

Lace front wigs:Hand-tied lace part ( in the front of the wig, the width of lace part is usually 2.5 inches) with machine-made back weft. Gives the natural hairline, can't provide natural parting line.

Full lace wigs: 100% hand-tied, each hair is individually hand-tied to the lace cap. Gives the natural hairline and can last a much longer time if with proper wig care.

Monofilament top wigs :  Hand-tied monofilament top (usually 5 inches* 5 inches area), allow free parting and give the natural parting line.

Monofilament top lace front wig: Hand-tied monofilament top (usually 5 inches* 5 inches area),  hand-tied lace part (in the front of the wig, the width of lace part is usually 1.5 inches), machine-made back open weft.
