Lace Front and Monofilament Wigs

For the most natural look you will definitely want a lace front and monofilament top. However, pay extra attention to the construction as monofilament tops can sometimes be a little irritating around the seams. 

100% hand tied caps are usually extremely soft and comfortable and have very little seams. However… They are quite pricey. This feature is usually reserved for human hair wigs. But, many synthetic wigs are perfect for women with a sensitive scalp as they are generally lighter and cooler.
