What is the difference between Hand-Tied vs Machine Weft Wigs?
Hand Tied Wigs
All our wigs are quality hand-tied; much better than that old-style weft machine tied, and for good reason. They are sewn into an ultra-thin stocking that sits comfortably on your head. They are light weight, comfortable and looks as if it’s your own hair growing right from your scalp. They come in 4 types of hair: Synthetic, Polymer Synthetic, Human and European.
Old Style Weft WigsA weft is a line of hair made by machine. There are series of horizontal lines sewn by machine. If you turn the wig over, you will see vertical and horizontal lines of hair. Weft wigs are economical because the hairs are tied by machine. Not only can’t they be parted freely, you can see hair lines if the wind blows and the base is heavy because of all the added fabric in the cap’s design.
