I started a new series recently on wig making. In the first post I talked about the basic things you need to make a wig (you can check it out HERE). Talking more on wig caps, there are different kinds used for wigs. We have
Dome cap: Used by most people actually. The only disadvantage with this cap is it isn’t great for hot weather as the scalp might not get to breathe
The Actual Wig Cap: (thats what its called) I used this for my first 2 wigs and they didnt last long at all. It would be best for quick weave wig (wigs made with glue)
Weaving Cap: This in my opinion is the best for making wigs. It usually has adjustable straps and a good structure for wig making
Weaving Net Cap: This cap is actually nice. It lets your scalp breathe well! But it also rips easily
- U-part Wig Cap: These are used in making U-part wigs i.e. wigs that allow you to leave some of your hair out for a more realistic look
Those are the major wig caps! Hope you are learning something. Please feel free to ask any questions. Till my next post!
