Client question: After reviewing Heather's reviews, the Freeda wigs look great. One question, however, is what does "skin top" and "multi directional" mean and what are the equivalent terms used in the other wigs used on your website?
The Multi-Directional Top/Crown just means Mono-Top (or hand-tied) essentially. Excerpt from Freeda's Blog below:
"Freeda came up with a novel idea. She was the first in the business to introduce the multi-directional cap. For the first time the wig could be parted in any direction, there were no short returns, and the wig could be worn super flat. The “multi”, as it is referred to, is the most delicate part of the wig. Each hair is meticulously sewn one at a time. It must be pulled through slowly as not to stretch or compromise the hair in any way. It takes hour and hours to complete a multi-directional crown."
Skin Tops are also essentially the same thing as a mono top/part/hand-tied cap:
"A few years ago, skin top wig types were the high-end option for those who could afford them. Due to advances in wig construction in recent years, skin tops are much less common. This type of construction has mostly been replaced by monofilament construction, which provides the same benefits of skin tops in a more comfortable and affordable package.
A handful of manufacturers continue to offer skin tops. With this wig type, individual hair fibers are implanted into an artificial plastic scalp base. Like monofilament caps, the hair comes out of the cap vertically, in the same way that natural hair grows. Hair can be parted anywhere on the cap without seeing the cap material underneath. Skin tops can be made either by machine or by hand. If done by hand, the hair fibers are randomly placed, giving a more realistic appearance. The finer the groupings of individual hair fibers on this cap, the better the quality. Skin top wigs will follow the same distribution pattern as monofilament tops."
