Our silk top option is on it's own product page because we want customers to be fully educated about what they are purchasing. Silk top wigs have pros and cons, and we want to make sure that you fully understand what you are going for. When making a wig, there are several options that provide the ability to part the hair and have it look like scalp, silk top is one of them. It is also one of the most labor intensive, and high end construction techniques used in wig making. The cap has a layer of lace, and a layer of silk underneath the lace. The silk hides the knots so that from the top of the wig, you cannot see any knots anywhere!
You may wonder, what's the downside? Well the downside is that it's more expensive and there is a visible line where the silk begins. In some cases, we can pick a silk color that more closely matches your skin color, so that the transition is not obvious, however, people's scalps are usually lighter than their complexion. In the photos you can see the cap construction detail, we try very carefully to make you fully aware of the options for wigmaking so you can make an informed decision. If you understand the pros and cons, a silk top is a good option.
If you've ever looked at a celebrity in a lace front wig, such as Ciara, Beyonce or Tyra Banks and wonder how they get such a perfect looking part, it is because they use a sik top on the crown of their wig.
Another question you may have is can you use a silk cap construction for an entire wig? You can, however, it's incredibly cost prohibitive. It's a popular option for women who have total hair loss and are committed to wearing wigs. We never recommend this for a customer's first or second wig. It is expensive so you should be absolutely sure that you are skilled with handling your wig, and are committed to proper care, before making the additional investment.
