Binary/Toupee Clips

The binary clips are small snap clips that bend back onto themselves for a super tight hold. They are extremely flat and sit up against the head, meaning they can be discreetly placed under the hair. These clips are most often found on add-on pieces, clip in hair extensions and extension streaks.

Jaw/Claw/Alligator Clips

Mostly used on ponytails, this piece clips tightly into your own hair and is extremely sturdy! It opens and closes when you squeeze the clip inside the hair. The clip inside the piece generally sits inside a pouch with an elastic tie around it… If you prefer to have a drawstring pouch you can remove the claw from inside the piece and use that to attach to your hair. For more information on the drawstring, check out the subject for that a little lower.

Interlocking Combs

Interlocking combs are fantastic for sliding into your own hair and creating fantastic elegant up dos, sweeping ponytails and pretty much just having terrific looking hair! You can blend the piece in with your own hair, on top or underneath, or pull your hair back and have it all swept in together.

Drawstring Pouch

A drawstring pouch is a coin purse style pouch you place over a bun on the back of your head and pull the elastic to tighten it onto your own hair! There is generally a small plastic cog that will help hold the piece in place, and looks realistic as it joins the piece close to your hair. If you like, you can also stretch the piece long ways over the back of your hair underneath for added fullness! Pinning it under your hair works well, as well as placing it on your hair like a ponytail.

Combs

¾ wigs sometimes have a small comb the top and the bottom so that you can slide it into your hair. If you have fine hair, sometimes using some hairpins is also a good idea so that you have a super secure fit.

Flexible Long Combs

Designer hairpieces generally have a larger more flexible comb at the top and bottom of the piece, meaning a tighter more secure fit. The piece doesn't need any hairpins to hold on as the band goes from ear to ear on top and underneath your head.

Packed Base

A packed base is a very special type of base used for a number of reasons! Styling versatility is paramount with a base like this - you can lift the hair up anywhere you like, and it moves and parts with ease. The hair is super thick at the base, so you can have heaps of volume and height without over styling your hair. The hair is generally lighter as well, making the wig more comfortable to wear and better ventilated.

We have provided some shots of a wig with a packed base styled in different ways. It only took a moment to restyle! We also have a close up of the roots so you can see how the hair is thick enough that you can't see through it to the actual cap below.

Lace Front

Lace front wigs are, by far, the most natural and wonderful wigs available on the market today! The hair is sewn onto a transparent mesh along the front, meaning you can have the hair styled back away from your face and still have a completely natural looking hairline! Generally, the entire top of the wig is also monofilament, meaning all the hair looks, feels and acts like real hair. Definitely the most versatile wig, no one would ever know this was a wig. Check out our shots of lace front wigs below… It's all one wig with no retouching, no over styling and none of the model's actual hair!


 

Here are some examples of one lace front wig styles in different ways, in a matter of seconds!

Monofilament

A monofilament base is the perfect way to get a nice natural and light wearing wig! The hair is hand sewn onto a transparent soft breathable mesh base which lets your own skin tone show through. This means your hair looks super real, and your skin can breathe with a really good airflow, whilst it matches your skin tone. As the hair is tied on the mesh base, parting the hair is extremely easy to do on a monofilament top. Our pictures below show how natural the hair looks!

You can sleek the hair down for a thin haired natural look, or style the roots upwards for a fuller appearance! The hairline on these wigs is also a lot closer to your skin, making side parts etc a lot more real. Generally the whole top of the wig, not the sides, are monofilament, but if you have a mono part, just the parting area of the wig is monofilament - this makes the piece more affordable. A mono top is perfect for people with a sensitive scalp as it is softer and lighter than a regular wig.

Capless Construction

A Capless construction sounds very confusing, as a wig needs to have a cap! The wig is very similar to a normal wig, but the top and sides are really open with thin wefts. This allows for great air circulation, letting your head breathe and feel a lot cooler. It also means the wig is a lot lighter and easier to wear… Much more comfortable!

Skin Top

A skin top wig has a synthetic faux-skin top, generally made of a soft flexible synthetic material. Depending on the level of detail, the fake skin will even have a skin texture laid into it for a super natural look! This means that if someone looks down your hair from above, they can see the hair growing directly out of skin… It's sneaky and tricky, and looks very real, and is much more affordable than using a monofilament top. A full skin top means you can part the hair anywhere from left to right, in the middle or anywhere you like! A skin top, being plastic, can be a little sweaty underneath, depending on when you wear it. Which is where Skin Parting can be useful - Please see below!

Skin Top Parting

Skin top parting is very much like a skin top, only the skin top parting is only where the hair is parted! Generally the part is only about an inch wide, and about 4 inches back on the head for a natural parting. Having only a small amount of skin in that one area means the piece is lighter and cooler to wear - allowing for more ventilation! The style of the wig is quite set in place though, as you cant change the parting as easily etc.
