This gorgeous wig is made of Indian Remy hair, processed to mimic African American hair that has been freshly treated with a high quality salon relaxer. The texture is sleek and straight, with a slight bend, it moves and flows freely and holds curls well. The hair dries straight, with a slight wave, you can choose to flat iron for a sleek look, but it is not necessary. For added versatility, you can roller set the hair, when wet, for a curly or wavy look. We started with a standard stock wig in #2, and custom colored dark roots in a deep, mocha brown. The bottom layer of hair is also colored mocha brown, this creates a very natural appearance similar to color that's growing out a bit. Our customers love wigs with dark roots and here's an opportunity to get dark roots without waiting for a custom made wig.
This hair has been thermally curled for photography. The curls can be achieved with a 1.5 inch ceramic curling iron (tongs).
Silk top wigs are growing in popularity because the ventilation technique allows multi directional parting without worrying about visible knots. The silk top consists of a layer of lace, and silk fabric. When the hair is knotted, the knots are below the silk concealed between the layers, making them truly invisible, which is why this is also often referred to as hidden knots. This technique is very labor intensive, and silk top wigs are generally more expensive than regular wigs.
Silk top wigs aren't for everyone. At zarawigs.com we really try to give you the best information possible, to enable you to make an informed choice. The main drawback of silk top wigs is a visible difference at the edges of the silk top. In the photo gallery of this wig, we captured many different photographs to show you the difference, to enable you to make an informed decision. This particular wig is made of transparent lace, which means the silk top will not work on those with darker skin shades, as you can see from our photo of the wig on a darker mannequin. If your skin is medium brown or darker, you can now order your custom wig with a silk top, to ensure that the shade of the silk matches your skin shade, to make the area blend flawlessly with your complexion.
There is no other ventilation technique that creates a more flawless appearance than hidden knots on a silk top, you don't need to bleach the knots, you don't need to worry about any other techniques to make the knots invisible or less visible. Having said that, most of our customers prefer lace caps because they are skilled with their application technique and they can achieve the look they want without the added expense of invisible knots and a silk top. The choice is yours and we want you to make the best decision possible, considering your investment in a lace wig.
