Occasions when you may require a full cap

Not all men can wear a partial hair system (also known as a topper or toupee). There are normally two reasons for this. The first one is as a man ages and goes bald, his existing hair thins and he can lose a lot of hair from the sides and the back area, also known as the nape. A top piece is hard to match, both in terms of hair colour and density. Extreme hair recession on the sides can also look bad. A full cap would seem the best solution to achieving a full head of hair again.

Ordering a mens or ladies full cap...


A full cap has many advantages over a topper. First of all there are no blending issues. There is no colour match. However, you naturally might want the hair on your head to compliment your eyebrows and skin. But it doesn't have to be perfect. Indeed, you can choose any colour or length you want. No dyes and no haircuts necessary! Just the initial styling. In fact, a full cap is better than natural hair! Banish the baldness - and also banish the grey! That applies to men and women. Many of our male clients have not only seen their hair return, but they also embrace their new colour choice.

Our full caps are usually made from 100% swiss lace. However, if you're new to wearing hair you may consider using some sort of poly on your first system. There are two reasons for this: 1) Tapes on poly are easy to apply and detach. Clean up is fast and simple. 2) A full cap without poly (that's a 100% swiss lace) is very light. For the first time hair wearer, may find attaching tape a bit difficult. Such clients often like to add poly as it helps in tape application and the added weight makes the system feel more secure to the head. If in doubt ask a hair tech for advice.




Making a full head cap template is simple

As you can see from the diagram, there are six easy measurements. First is the circumference; then front to nape; then ear to ear across forehead; then ear to ear over the top; then temple to temple round back; and finally the nape of the neck. Just choose your colour and hair length and you're as good as done.

How to care for your hair system


Proper care must be made with your new system. Never use a hard brush, because this will make the hairs fall out. A soft brush or comb is better.


Do this with warm water. Agitate gently after immersing for one minute. Be careful not to rub the system hard! Rinse carefully in the water thoroughly. You can then use conditioner, and rinse gently. Use a towel and blot the system. Do not wring or squeeze.


Let the system to air dry on a wig stand, or slender object like a can of hairspray or a shampoo bottle covered with a hand towel. Do not use a hair dryer. Natural dry only. You may gently style the wig with your fingertips.

After washing:

Only brush the system until after it has completely dried. If you're worried the hair might get matted, then you can run your fingers gently through the hair to loosen it up. Do not allow the system to dry in direct sunlight.


You can style it with a light brush, comb, or your fingertips. Keep it from human use brushes. These brushes can create excessive tension, over-stretching the hair with abrasive strokes that may damage it.
