Monofilament Wigs

What is "monofilament", and what is a monofilament wig? And how is it different from a standard wig?

A monofilament wig is a of higher quality construction than a standard cap wig, resulting in a more natural look, depending on the hairstyle desired. Monofilament construction wigs have been steadily growing in popularity for many years.

Monofilament, sometimes abbreviated as "mono" is a type of a thin mesh nylon fabric, that is used in wig construction. So the base of a monofilament wig is made up of this monofilament material instead of the traditional lace or wefts. Whether it is a synthetic hair or a human hair, the construction is the same: instead of rows of hair, the hair on monofilament material is sewn in a hair (or a few hairs) at a time creating an effect that looks like the way hair naturally grows out of a scalp.


What are the advantages and disadvantages of monofilament construction compared with standard wigs?

Advantages:

Natural Look With A Natural Part and Less Hair And Materials

The main advantage is a more natural look. Monofilament wig offers the most natural and realistic look as each hair is hand-sewn into the monofilament mesh and the semi-transparent material allows for the wig to show off your scalp with natural parts in your hair style. In other words, a Monofilament wig is almost indiscernible from natural hair to even the most curious onlooker.

Aside from an amazingly realistic part area which simulates the look of a human scalp, the other reason a monofilament wig looks very natural is because there is less hair on the wig.

A common problem with wigs is that sometimes it feels like there is just too much hair, especially on the top of the head and near the front hairline. A monofilament wig is less bulky in these areas. There is less hair, and less cap materials as well, causing the hair to lie very flat and close to the head. For this reason, we especially recommend monofilament wigs to anyone who has thin or fine hair.

Lightweight and Cooler

A monofilament wig is usually more lightweight than a standard cap wig because there is less hair on the wig and less materials in the cap fabrics. Also because of this, the wig is cooler and allows more airflow to prevent heat being trapped under the wig.

Directionality And More Styling Options

Oftentimes a monofilament wig will allow more styling options since each hair can move more easily in different directions because each hair or few hairs is sewn in individually. In other words, the style is less fixed and can usually be altered simply by brushing it, or with the aid of a little bit of water during styling to make the hair more flexible. For this reason, you can alter the location of the part in most monofilament wigs, something that is not possible to do with a standard cap wig.

This directionality also allows the hairs on the wig to move more like your natural hair. Each hair has a little more individual freedom of movement.

Disadvantages:

More Expensive

The main disadvantage is that monofilament wigs are more expensive than standard cap wigs. The higher price is due to the extreme labor-intensive nature of the construction. Each hair or tuft of hair is hand-tied and individually knotted into the monofilament using tiny hooks. Of course this takes a great deal of time and a great deal of skill.

Not As Much Hair

One of the main advantages of a monofilament wig can also be a disadvantage. While many people are pleased with the thinner hair volume of monofilament wigs, some people want more hair and more volume.

For a flatter, more natural style, monofilament is a good choice. But what if you want your hair to have more height or more volume? Then a monofilament wig might not be a good choice for you. It really depends on what type of hairstyle you are trying to achieve.

What are the differences between different types of monofilament wigs?

The caps of most monofilament wigs are not entirely made of monofilament material, but are a combination of monofilament and wefted construction. The most important and difficult areas to make look right in a wig are the top and crown of the head, and the edge of the front hairline, so those are the areas where you will most often see monofilament construction. The sides and the back of the wig are usually wefted even on a monofilament wig.

However, the very highest quality construction wigs are entirely 100% hand tied with monofilament construction. Also some wigs have a "monofilament part" solely to achieve a natural part, but have regular construction in the rest of the cap.

Some monofilament wigs have a double layer of materials which they call two-layer construction. This provides an additional layer of very thin material between the monofilament and the head for extra comfort.

The extent to which a wig is composed of monofilament material often depends on various factors, but the main factor is what hairstyle is being achieved. Many hairstyles don't require monofilament to achieve a stunning look, or only require them in certain portions of the wig's cap. For this reason, the exact cap construction may differ is some minor ways from style to style.

Is a monofilament wig the right choice for me?

Perfect for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or women suffering from significant hair loss, it is also a great choice for anyone who wants the most undetectable wig available.
