Types of human hair wigs

There are two basic kinds of hair wigs: The traditional Machine Stitched Weft Wig and the Hand tied Lace Wig. The machine stitched wigs are still the most widely worn wigs today. The hair is sewn on a stretch weft material and come with back straps for adjusting to various head sizes. These wigs are typically pre-styled and lack any kind of realistic expectations.

The lace wigs are quickly becoming one of the most sought after wigs among wig wearers. The amazing realistic illusion of hair growing from the scalp is the feature that makes this wig the best of the best when it comes to wearing fake hair. These wigs are made with a French or Swiss lace material base. They are made as a full lace or partial lace front with a stretch weft back. Each hair strand is individually stitched into a lace material which creates the natural look of hair at the base. This is where the term “hand tied” originates.

Hair type is the distinguishing factor in human hair wigs. Four main types of hair are used in manufacturing : Chinese or “Malaysian”, Indian, Indonesian or “Brazilian”, and Caucasian or “European”. The majority of human hair wigs are made of Chinese or Indian hair, while European hair is considered the most expensive and rare, as most donors are from Russia or Northern Europe, where there is a smaller portion of hair donors to the market.
