Of course, this would depend on where you buy your wigs, and our products are all top-quality material, 100% Human Remy hair. This 3/4 hairpiece is by far our most voluminous hairpiece.
What Exactly is a ¾ Wig?
For some, it might be their first time to ever stumble upon the term, “3/4 wig”. So what exactly is it? This is basically a wig that can cover ¾ of a person’s head, and it is mainly attached to the head’s top half and extends over to the back using built-in clips. This is also sometimes known as falls, headband wigs or u-part wigs.
This type of wig allows for a more natural look, since your own hair can be exposed to show your hairline, or your own center or side part. Some of these wigs have a u-shaped opening and one can then take sections of their natural hair and use it to cover the part where the wig is attached.
How are the Wigs Made?
Even though some wigs can be mass manufactured, the best ones are those that are still hand-made. This would have a wig base, called caps. Different types of caps exist, and this could be the standard cap, the skin-top cap, the monofilament cap and the capless type.
Regardless of the cap type, a lot of wigs would make use of a fine-lace material to which the hair would be sewn or hand-tied to. A wig that has a wefted foundation would have rows of hair sewn on its cap. These are the less expensive types of wigs. On the other hand, wigs with a net foundation would have hair knotted by hand onto its cap, which is usually made out of mesh. This type of wig is more expensive, but gives a more natural look.
Our ¾ wigs also now feature lace-fronts. This type of cap construction provides a more natural look, and is longer-lasting. This is because the front half part of the wig is made of a sheer-lace material, is breathable and also gives the illusion of a flawless and very-real looking hairline. These are then attached to the front hairline part with glue and tapes. This firmly secures the lace to the head.
How to Apply ¾ Wigs
Our ¾ wigs are literally a snap to apply. These wigs have built-in clips that can be found in the inner portion of the wigs, and these clips are then snapped into the front half part of the head, as well as at the back portion. These wigs are also elasticized and have adjustable straps to ensure a more secure fit.
Once the wig is in place, you can then style your hair as desired, either blending in your natural hair by bringing your own hair to the back, or also by securing it with some hair clips. You can also use a headband to hide the part where your wig and natural hair are joined.
Since these ¾ wigs contain more hair, it gives more volume and provides more versatility with regards to hair styles than half-wigs and clip-in sets. You can do a wider range of hairstyles with these wigs and they are also very easy to maintain and can look perfectly natural.
These wigs also save you a lot of time when it comes to attaching and removing it, as it comes in a single hairpiece that is very easy and convenient since it uses clips, as compared to the more tedious application of other types of hair extensions, such as individually attaching each hair extension or by weaving. The stretchable extension cap also adds to the security of attaching the wig, making you feel more confident with the added volume and length of your hair.
