How to make an invisible part

Hello everyone! This is the fourth post for the Wiggin’ It Series which will teach you how to make your own wigs.

 

 

 

 

Yesterday’s post showed you how to make a full wig and closure piece. Today’s post will show you how to make a more realistic invisible part closure using lace. When you use lace, it makes it look like your scalp is showing. The key is to use lace that is a shade or two off of your skin tone because your scalp is usually lighter than the rest of your body.

Wiggin’ It Series: How to Make a Full Wig

How to make a full wig

Hello everyone! This is the third post for the Wiggin’ It Series which will teach you how to make your own wigs.

Today we will finally make our wigs. There are several different ways to do this. You can use a stocking cap, spandex sport cap aka dome cap, or a weaving cap. Whichever cap you chose determines the type of bonding method you use. If you do use the dome cap/ spandex cap, make sure it is the one female cap and not the male cap. For instance, you can use weave glue on each of these caps as long as you put a plastic bag or plastic stocking cap on the wig head first to keep the cap from sticking to the wig head. The spandex cap is great for high temperature glue sticks and fusion glue sticks. With this cap, you still want to use a plastic bag or shower cap underneath to protect the wig head. The weaving cap is great if you want to sew on your weave, and once again… it goes great with weave glue as well.

Wiggin’ It Series: What are the Top Virgin Hair Brands

What are the top virgin hair brandsHello everyone! This is the second post for the Wiggin’ It Series which will teach you how to make your own wigs. Yesterday’s post was on buying beauty supply store hair.

 

Today’s post is on virgin hair. That extremely expensive, yet totally gorgeous hair that you see on the likes of Beyonce, Lala Anthony, and Kim Kardashian. The reason it looks so good and is sooooo expensive is becomes it comes straight off of the donors head, and is shipped to the hair companies and then to you from India, Russian, Malaysia, Ecuador, Mongolia, Peru, and many other exotic locales. It doesn’t have any chemicals or color dyes in it so it is pure, unprocessed virgin hair.

I have yet to buy this kind of hair, but if I were I would get the Russian hair since this hair resembles my relaxed African American hair more than the other types of hair. It is out of my budget, but if you got it like that… rock that virgin hair! Also if you are new to wig making, stick to the less expensive beauty supply hair first. Trust me on this. You don’t want to screw up your first wig with $100-$1000 hair. Videos from @Thomasadrianna.

Wiggin’ It Series: How to Buy Weave at Beauty Supply Stores

How to buy weave at Beauty Supply Stores

Hello everyone! This is the first post for the Wiggin’ It Series which will teach you how to make your own wigs. Wigs are fun to wear and own.

 

Sometimes you may want a certain style, but can’t find that particular wig, or you are just like me. I like being able to change my hair without cutting, weaving, or adding heat to it. Making your own wigs gives you the ability to change as often your hair as you like.

This first video is by Jouelzy. It shows you how to buy beauty supply store hair. You gotta buy the hair before you can make the wig. She tells you what brands are good and what brands are bad. I like this video because I think she is pretty thorough when it comes to hair weave brands. Don’t forget to check out her $30 weave series if you are on a serious budget.

Tomorrow’s video will be on virgin hair.
