Lace Wig Hair Knots Explained

Updated: Aug 15, 2019

Have you been wondering about the different knots and the reason for each? Well, hopefully the explanations below will provide you with answers. We offer five kinds of knots with our newest being Camouflage Knots.

Bleached Knots

Bleaching the knots is meant to make the knots less detectable. The knots don't be clear or totally invisible. The bleached hair will help to hide the knots in about 1/4 – 1/2 inch fronts. It is a method of making the hair appear as if it is growing from the scalp. It gives a realistic view effect. If the original hair color is Black, Dark Brown, Medium Brown or Brown, then knots that hold the hair onto the base will be slightly lighter and will be much less visible.

Single Knots

Single knots are considered the best method of knotting producing a tiny knot for each individual hand-tied hair. Two or three individual hairs can be single knotted at one time speeding up the process to the detriment of creating a larger knot with less aesthetically pleasing finish. It's hard to detect, but easy to shed.

Double Knots

Double knots literally involve knotting hair twice to produce a double knot which provides a stronger, more robust knot. The resulting knots are however even more visible under close inspection. It's easy to detect, but not easy to shed.

Silk Top Hidden Knots

Silk Top Hidden Knots are hidden under the inside layers of lace. It has two pieces of lace, and the knot is completely invisible which gives the impression the hair is growing naturally out of the scalp. The silk top is available in popular colors to match your complexion.

Silk Injection

Silk Injection is the process of injecting hair strands into Thin Skin. The knots are undetectable, resulting in a lace wig that looks natural and with an unbelievably crown that can be parted down the center, left or right part. Silk Injection is similar to a Silk Top, except it is made with Thin Skin.

Camouflage Knots

Camouflage Knots lessens the visibility of the knots in our full lace wigs, glueless lace wigs, front lace wigs and lace front wigs. We use hair color #4 to lighten the knot at the root to make it less visible. We only lightly bleach the knots on the front hairline for dark hair colors because bleaching can damage the hair and lead to excessive matting, tangling and shedding. If the visibility of lightly bleached knots have been an issue for you, then try our Camouflage Knots.
