               How To Attach And Maintain Hair Toppers For Beginners?

  • Knot

Knotting is a process done when making a hair top or wig to secure strands of hair to the base.

A single knot is achieved by tying a single knot to secure a strand of hair to the base.

A double knot is achieved by using two or more hair strands and attaching them to the base....

  • Monofilament Base

Mono-base toppers consist of a translucent mesh into which individual strands of hair are hand-tied to mimic natural hair growth. This can be single layer or double layer.

  • Silk Top Base

The silk top is the most realistic base yet. The base is made of a layer of lace and a layer of skin colored silk, giving it a scalp-like feel. The top knot is hidden under the silk layer. The hair has a silky material running through it, giving the impression that the hair is actually growing out of the scalp.

  • Lace base

lace base consists of individually attached hairs to a lightweight and breathable lace material.

  • Polyurethane/PU

PU, short for polyurethane, is sometimes mistakenly referred to as silicone. It is a flexible, strong, transparent material used to make wig caps (injected into the hair) or placed around the perimeter of a wig to provide an area to attach adhesive or clips.
