There’s no greater feeling than when we know we're having an amazing hair day!
Wigs make every day a great hair day. But just how much should you spend for great hair?
1. Not all wigs are created equal.
Premium features like lace-front and human hair can make all the difference in how natural your hair looks and feels. But just because one feature is more expensive than another doesn’t make it the right choice for you.
2. Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.
Did you know that a good quality cap can take up to 30 hours to make! The meticulous craftsmanship that goes into each hand-made design ensures wearing your favorite, cute style feels like wearing nothing at all. Learn more about Cap Construction here.
3. Not having to spend hours in the salon chair…Priceless.
Think about the time suck of your last salon visit. Remember the anxiety of hoping they get the cut right? The awkwardness of convincing yourself that “It’s just a haircut” when they didn’t?
Higher-end wigs are all about giving you the perfect salon look without a trip to the salon. You get just the style you want. And because the denier and texture of quality synthetic hair looks and feels so much like human hair, human hair wigs are not your only option. Checkout out our previous post about synthetic and human hair to find out which is really the best choice for you.
Having a great hair day is like a perfectly timed, witty comeback. You feel like you can take on the world. Give yourself permission to feel as great as you know you are. You’re totally worth it!

First, we’d like to give thanks to Ellen Wille for the exclusive opportunity to work with them behind the scenes of their lavish photo shoot on this collection.
Perucci is the next generation of wigs! Inspired by the rebellious, young and creative, this Collection highlights gorgeous long styles and exciting short cuts. These new envogue styles are defined by their inspiring color shades and natural rooted effects.
Everyone loves Carrie! With its beautifully straight hair and bold fringe, it’s not hard to see why. Every great wig begins with the cap (the material the hair is attached to). And what makes this synthetic wig one to be admired is the mono-crown construction. Each hair is individually weaved into the crown, giving any woman the look of hair naturally flowing out of her own scalp, which is just that right touch of something special that makes this long look adorable.
Be curious for more in Load-a voluminous and feminine, shoulder-length look made of synthetic fiber. The cap features a monoparting crest, which means you get a natural part in a beachy wave style that’s always ready to go. We bet you’ll get loads of compliments in this one!
Looking forward to new styles? Point is an adorable asymmetrically cropped cut that lifts up the texture at the crown, then descends into a sharp bang as it gets straight to the point. Featuring a mono-crown curl, you get a natural part and the illusion of hair growing naturally from your own scalp. If you’re feeling up to it, let it rock in this color (hotflame mix) for a bold rebellious statement.
Get ready for the next step. Echo is another rockstar that’s loud and glorious. This synthetic modern bob style with long pony parts delivers a girlishly feminine and flirty look with glam rock style. It features a lacefront with monoparting crest to give you a look that makes the hair appear as if its growing out of your own scalp with a natural part. This is a style you’ll want to wear again and again.
Wiki is like a refreshing breeze. It’s a mid-length that strikes a perfect balance between a short and long style. The basic cap means you get open wefting for ventilation to help keep your scalp cool. The natural-looking beach curls offer a slightly messy style that’s chic and easy to maintain, perfect for those without a lot of time for styling. Don’t miss out on this fun curly beauty!
Always the trendsetter in wigs, these new styles from the Perucci Collection promises that Ellen Wille will never to be outdone. You’ll always be a step ahead in the Perucci Next Generation Wigs!

Wigs have come a long way since your grandmother’s day! The new advancements in alternative hair technology come together to deliver the most contemporary styles making it impossible to tell the difference between a wig and natural hair.
But, before you consider style and color, it’s important to find the best cap to suit your needs so you can fully enjoy your wig.
The wig cap or base, is the material the wig hairs are attached to. Newer caps are lighter and more durable to give you a more comfortable fit and a look that’s completely natural. There are four basic types of cap features you should be familiar with next time you’re looking for a wig. Each one has its particular advantages, and unique technique by which hair is attached.
4 Types of Cap Features
Also known as 100% hand-knotted, these comfortable and lightweight caps are among the very best available. Each hair is individually hand-tied to the cap to create the most natural movement. This allows the hairs to move freely, and you get the added bonus of styling versatility which allows you to comb the hair in any direction. It has the softest and smoothest base which contours to the scalp, giving a near custom fit; ideal for sensitive scalps or hair loss.
There are two types of monofilament tops:
- A full mono top allows for parting and styling versatility.
- A double mono top gives an extra layer of soft material for added comfort (perfect for sensitive skin or scalps).
This is a wonderful option that offers very natural hair growth from the scalp where the hair is parted. The monofilament can be found just at the crown, along a pre-defined part or across the full top of the wig. Similar to the 100% hand-tied caps, each hair is individually hand-tied to a sheer base (but not the entire cap).
These caps are more popular than ever! Once very expensive and found only on Hollywood productions, they are now much more accessible. Made of delicate materials that should be handled with care, the lace goes from temple-to-temple, or are extended from ear-to-ear and designed to blend in with a variety of skin tones. Each hair is individually tied to the cap, but like monofilament wigs (not to the entire cap). This allows for styling the hair away from the face while maintaining the illusion of a natural front hair line. Most are ready-to-wear and don’t require tape or adhesive for attachment.
These are the most durable and affordable wig caps. They include both cap-less and traditional constructions, identified by the open wefting in the cap for better air ventilation. A weft is a curtain of hair sewn onto the cap. The hair on these caps are pre-teased at the root to mask the cap beneath, which often gives the hair natural volume at the crown.
You may find that some styles incorporate more than one cap feature, some even vary by brand. Knowing about these cap features will help you choose wigs that are more comfortable and better suited for your needs.

Top pieces are a great solution for localized hair loss. The best top piece covers the affected area while delivering exceptional comfort. Identifying the nature and extent of your hair loss is the key to determining the right solution for your needs.
Stages of Hair Loss: The first step in determining what kind of coverage you need is to identify your stage of hair loss.
Stage I: Hair loss is in a diffused pattern on top of the head. Hair loss at this stage is noticeable, but minimal.
Stage II: Hair loss is more noticeable, and more of the scalp may be visible.
Stage III: At this stage hair loss is very noticeable, and the scalp is clearly visible.
Area of Hair Loss: The second step is to identify the location of hair loss.
Front/Fringe: Hair loss is localized at or near the front hair line.
Part: Hair loss is localized within the top of the scalp near the part or crown.
Top: Light to moderate hair loss localized at the top of the scalp near the part or the crown.
Crown: Hair loss is localized at or near the back of the scalp.
Diffused: Hair loss is localized at the top of the scalp and is spread through much of the area.
Total/Complete: Complete loss of hair.
The Best Solution: The third step is to select the best type of coverage for your need.
Clip-in bangs/fringe are the perfect solution for thinning hair at the front hairline or temples.
Clip-in, volumizing hairpieces and extensions help you fill in thinning areas or fine hair. This is the ideal solution for hair loss localized within a smaller area of the head.
Clip-in top pieces with smaller bases work best for light to moderate hair loss at the top of the head near the part or crown.
Clip-in top pieces with larger bases are the solution for extensive hair loss at the top, crown, or more diffused stages of hair loss.
100% Hand-Tied & Double Monofilament Wigs are the ideal solution for complete hair loss and the preferred wigs by women with hair loss because of the smoother surface and comfortable caps which eliminate irritation and friction against the scalp.
We're here to help you find a solution to regain your confidence. For more assistance, we developed our Hair Matchmaker tool to help you easily classify your particular type and degree of hair loss matched up with the best solution.
