When looking buying men's hair pieces online, one of the most important choices to consider is the type of base needed. The "base" of the hair piece is what the hair follicles are sewn into. Common base materials include polyurethane, lace and nylon. Different base materials serve different purposes and each has its own positive and negative attributes.
Lace bases are very comfortable, as lace is usually the best material for air flow. A lace hairpiece will also offer a very natural appearance at the front hairline as the lace front is very fine and virtually invisible. On the flip side, lace hair pieces tend to break down faster than other materials because the lace is very delicate. Attachment may also be more completed, especially if you plan to use hair piece tape. The tape can sometimes be more difficult to remove and tearing may occur.
Nylon bases are somewhat similar to lace. Nylon men's hair pieces can come in a variety of styles including fine mono and welded mono. A nylon base will also have superior ventilation compared with polyurethane bases and thus offer more comfort to the hair wearer. Nylon is also typically stronger than lace; making nylon hair pieces a more durable option. Some may argue that nylon does not offer as natural an appearance as lace when used in base construction; however the quality of nylon produced these days has helped nylon to rival lace in natural appearance. The durability of nylon also helps hair piece wearers with easy removal, as they do not have to worry about tearing quite as much as they would with a lace hair piece.
