Regardless of what wig fiber you decide on, human hair or synthetic, today's state-of-the-art wig construction gives these wigs a realistic appearance. ? Wig cap constructions are made from a much thinner fiber than in the past, thus avoiding a bulky, "wiggy" look. If you choose to purchase a human hair wigs, be aware that it will require a professional trimming and styling once it arrives.
