Why can't I find a monotop wig that looks like Reese from Noriko?

From a client email:
I absolutely love Reese, but only wear monofilament tops now. I was super excited when it came out in mono, but alas, was only a mono part...not a fan of those. And no lace front! I keep hoping one if the wig companies will come out with a wig that looks like Reese, but is either 100% hand tied or at least full mono top.
There are Reese-style haircuts available in a monotop, they are just tricky to spot for reasons I will explain below. Delaney by Envy is a good example. Another good example is Diane by Jon Renau. Here's the thing -- you won't be able to reliably reproduce the volume of a wig like Reese without the permatease, which is why it's difficult to identify that these mono styles are similar to their non-mono counterparts. Without the built-in volume, they look like fairly different styles, even if they're cut the same! This may explain why even though these products already exist, many people have difficulty recognizing that they are similarly shaggy styles. Without the built-in volume that permatease provides to synthetic wigs, these styles will look a little deflated by comparison. Of course, with the high demand of Reese with a monofilament, Noriko released a Reese with a partial monofilament. The partial monofilament cap gives you the best of both worlds: permatease for the lifted style and the natural look from the monofilament part.

I’m going to order a Katherine wig. What is the closest color to Almond Rocka? As you may know, I also love the Almond Rocka! If only the 32BF had a brown base instead of an auburn one; then we’d be in business! None of the colors for Katherine have multi-tone highlights like Almond Rocka except 32BF — and it’s definitely a red.

There are many different forms of hair loss and just as many reasons for each one. Alopecia is the catch all name for hair loss and includes a type caused by traction - or a pulling force. You may be under the assumption that traction alopecia only occurs after wearing a super-tight style that causes the hair to be pulled from the roots.
