The guide to making a wig

STEP 1 : Preparation

To make a perfect, comfortable wig, buyers need to choose the type of lace-up cap they want to use, decide between real human hair and synthetic hair, then spend some time sewing the hair into place. The main thing you need to be sure of is the size of the cap measured on your head.

STEP 2: Forming the base of the wig

We recommend lace closures or frontals because they’re more flexible and easy to work with and then adjust on your head. You can find a cotton lace cap or other fine mesh cap that fits your head and place it on the mannequin. You need to make sure that your customized wig sits seamlessly on your hair, as if it were an integral part of your head.

STEP 3: Preparing the hair

We always recommend the highest quality hair, whether virgin, Brazilian, Indian or Peruvian. You can use any texture of natural virgin human hair for your own DIY wig. Weave balls – about three packs should suffice (usually 100 g per pack) and you can choose a single length if you want to achieve a gradual look, or several different lengths to make the overall length more uniform.

STEP 4: Making a wig

This is the most important step. First, sew the wig to the edge of the cap so that it can be worn in a high ponytail. Next, sew using the top-and-bottom method to secure the strands. Be sure to secure the edge of your weave before turning it inside out.

Apply a new technique by laying your strand in a U-shape instead of the front-to-back pattern. Not only will this allow the lines to extend smoothly once you’ve placed the wig on your hair, but also, don’t forget to make sure you have tight hem stitches as you sew.

STEP 5 : Putting on the wig

Now it’s time to test the fit of the wig. Trim excess lace. Remove the wig and put it back on. That’s it, so easy, isn’t it?
