    For anyone who has even just dipped their toes into the wig world knows there are numerous types of cap constructions. Each type of construction serves a different purpose however some can be unbearable in the hotter months of the year.

    If you have a Breathable Wig that is close wefted, silk top and silicone-lined cap – you’re going to be sweating like a pig. We recommend a piece with an open wefted cap or a piece with a lace top. If you happen to find a human hair wig with both you’ve found the jackpot!

    An open wefted cap on a Air Lace Wig has the same exact construction, as a traditional close wefted cap however there is no material placed over the wefts so there is open area for airflow. This will help to create ventilation so your scalp gets a nice breeze throughout the day

    Lace itself is a more breathable fabric compared to silk which is used on a silk top wig or topper. Lace is made with holes that allow for more air circulation.

    This Air Wigs has a cap with a full lace construction. This means that the entirety of the cap is covered with lace and there are no wefts. This could be a great choice if you want that breathable fabric all over. However lace is a more delicate fabric so you wouldn’t want to play some summer kickball in this kind of cap.

    This construction is a lace top with a wefted back. This means that only the area on the crown of the head is covered by lace and wefts cover the back of the head. You can either get close wefted of open wefted caps. An open wefted cap with a lace top would provide optimal airflow!

    You can see all of the lace pieces we have in stock here.

    Is a topper or a wig better for summer weather?

    A wig covers a persons entire scalp whereas a topper only covers the top of the scalp.

    If you are experiencing only thinning and you have hair to clip on to, a topper will be your favorite summer option. By not having your whole head covered you will feel a lot cooler when that breeze passes by.

    Toppers, just like wigs, come in various cap constructions so you could get one with a lace top for even more breathability.
