What are Monofilament Wigs?

Every industry has their own jargon. And if you are new to buying or wearing wigs, there may be some key terms we use to describe our wigs that are foreign to you. We want to reduce the confusion and define some of these common phrases. Our first common phrase to demystify, is the Monofilament Wig

Monofilament wigs have a base that is created from a gauze-like, fine-grade nylon material, and is naturally transparent. Then, each strand of hair is tied by hand to the nylon materials, allowing for the wig to part naturally.

Some of the advantages of these high end wigs are that the top of the wig shows your natural skin color, they replicate the look of a real human scalp, and they move freely just like real hair.

Monofilament wigs look and feel natural – These are the best kind of wigs to wear if you are looking for a wig that can pass as your natural hair. Many brands offer these kind of wigs, at a variety of different price points.
