I’m Jess, your wig wearing, champagne drinking, Bravo TV obsessed, side part and skinny jean wearing (they have never gone out of style in my opinion), telogen effluvium and androgenetic alopecia hair loss BFF.
You might also hear this type of wig referred to as a “skin top.” In my opinion a silk top (whether it is a silk top wig or a lace front wig) provides the most realistic-looking part line. Silk tops are just that, they have a layer of pure silk material on the top of the cap to mimic a scalp. The hairs are secured to the wig with the knots tied underneath the silk material, making the knots completely invisible. This gives the appearance of hair growing right out of your scalp. This type of wig does not have any lace and does not provide a built in hairline. This type of wig is great for blending your bio hair along the hairline.
