Here at Name Brand Wigs we want you to find a wig or addition you love! We know from experience the more informed you are about the wig features, the easier it will be to narrow things down (especially with all the style options we offer! :) ) Many times need or even preference will vary greatly from person to person. That is why we have chosen to focus on monofilament today. When I first came into the wig world almost 7 years ago now, monofilament was one of the first terms I heard. Even though it's a long and bit confusing sounding word, monofilament is actually a special feature that is there to add more movement and realism to your wig!


Monofilament refers to the type of cap construction. Monofilament wigs will have a section of lace material where the hair is individually pulled through strand by strand. This allows the hair to move just like real hair would, and duplicates the look of a real scalp. Let's go over some other great benefits of a monofilament top:

  • Comfortable
  • Light-weight
  • Realistic looking
  • The ability to change the part 
  • Eliminates much of the permatease found in standard caps
