Wig Making For Beginners; Know Your Wig Caps

Wig Making For Beginners; Know Your Wig Caps

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
  1. 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
  2. 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)
  3. Weaving Cap: This in my opinion is the best for making wigs. It usually has adjustable straps and a good structure for wig making
  4. Weaving Net Cap: This cap is actually nice. It lets your scalp breathe well! But it also rips easily
  5. 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!
