Mono Top Wigs VS Lace Top Wigs

No matter whether you are new to wigs or you have own a dozen wigs, the texture of the wig top is a key aspect you should take into consideration before choosing a suitable wig. In fact, different tops can affect many factors such as comfort level, firmness, stability, and so on. It is hard to tell which one is better because they have different advantages.


As two normal tops, mono top and lace top have been widely used in the wig and each of them is suitable for certain groups. So it is key to find a suitable top based on your own situation.


Mono Top Wigs


Monofilament wigs are high quality, natural looking wigs whose caps are constructed with a thin, mesh, nylon-like material called monofilament fabric (sometimes abbreviated as "mono top wigs"). A standard wig cap is constructed with several rows of “wefts” layered and sewn to create a base.


As a conventional wig cap, the mono top is featured as a glueless cap because you don’t need to use glue to secure it. Also, the mono top remains sheer, and smooth, and provides flexible movement and versatility in styling, which means it provided more opportunities for you to try more hairstyles. In terms of durability, a mono top has a longer lifespan than a lace top. Therefore, it also means it is less easy to be damaged and deformed for a long time.

Lace Top Wigs


Lace tops, lace front wigs, full lace wigs. You've heard the terms, but which are best for what and why?


A lace front helps you get an invisible front hairline.


If the entire wig is lace you can get a near natural part and natural hairline anywhere the lace is which means you can wear the hair up or parted as you wish. A full lace wig has individually tied strands and can take a ventilator (a hair weaving expert) up to 100 hours per wig to add all the hair.


Full lace caps are comfortable and wearable and great even for people suffering medical hair loss or sensitive scalp issues.

To be specific, if you're more interested in the natural texture of the hairline and don't think the wig is a necessity in your life. For example, you probably only wear it for certain important occasions or just want to change your style sometimes. Well, you can go with a lace top wig. If you're a long-term wig wearer and you're more concerned with the comfort level and durability of a wig, a mono top wig is definitely your best choice in many ways.
