How to Make a wig with Closure or Frontal

how to make a wig cap

When we buy some bundles and closure or frontal, most will looking for a hairdresser help us install to head, in most, this will take lots of money. If we can make a wig ourselves, it will save a lot of money. In fact, it’s very easy.

Before we make a wig, we should prepare something:

  • Hair bundles;
  • Hair extensions ( closure or frontal);
  • Hair Tools
    • wig head
    • Wig cap
    • Needle and thread or hair blue and hot blue

Wig head and wig cap just to make the wig more beautiful, and if you are already skilled, wig head is not necessary. Using wig cap will be more comfortable when we wear our wig. Needle and thread or hair blue and hot blue is necessary when we make a wig. Needle and thread is the most secure method yet takes the longest to install. Hair glue and hot glue are both fast, yet hot glue is a bit more durable yet must be done with caution because the glue is hot.

Pick out the right ventilating needle. The right size depends on the number of strands you want in a single knot. For more strands, choose a larger needle. For fewer strands, choose a smaller one.

If you have lace with very fine gaps, you might need to use fewer strands per gap, so you would choose a smaller needle.

For lace with larger gaps, the number of strands will influence the fullness of the wig. More strands will create a fuller, fluffier wig, while fewer strands will create a flatter style.

OK, let’s start to make a wig.

Ready for wig head and wig cap

Mount your wig head on a wig stand or set it down on a chair or table with tape.

You want your wig head to be stable while you are making your wig for easier construction.

Then please wear wig cap to wig head.

Prepare Hair bundles and hair extensions

Please lay hair extensions down first and then add hair bundles. This will help you see how much hair you need and allow you to chose where you want the closure or frontal to lay on your head.

Start make the wig

First you can install your hair extensions to top use needle, keep closure or frontal is position top and middle.

Then install the hair bundles, work from the neck up. You should always start knotting the wig onto the lace from the bottom of the neckline. Work your way up along the back before moving to the sides. After reaching the sides, work your way over the crown of the head.

Pull the hair through in a loop and knot it onto the lace.[3] You will need to single-knot or double-knot sections of hair made from only a few strands onto the individual gaps in the lace foundation using your ventilating tool.

Fold the end of a thin section of hair to form a loop.

Hook this loop with your ventilating needle and push it through one of the gaps in the lace foundation.

Maneuver the needle so that you can grab the hair at the base of the loop with the hook, pulling it back through the gap of the lace. This should give you a new loop of hair that wraps around the edge of the gap.

Knot the strands of hair once or twice onto the cotton edge of the gap. Make sure that the knot is fully tightened and closed so that the hair stays in place. You will need to pull the entire length of the section through the knot as you tighten it.

Note also that you should be using your free hand to hold the other side of the hair taut as you work throughout this entire process.

Vary the direction. Once you reach the crown of the wig, you should mentally separate the top into six separate directions and tie the strands off evenly in each of those directions.

Do not merely tie the strands so that they fall in one single direction, since this will not look natural.

You should have two sections that extend straight down from either side of the wig, and the other four sections should be evenly spaced between these initial two.

Cover the ribbons. Turn the wig inside out and stitch hair along the inside edge of the ribbons to prevent them from showing from the front.

Sew in steel springs. Use a needle and thread to sew a few short steel springs around the temples, neck, and forehead of the wig. This will help the hair lift in a natural, pleasant manner.

The springs should only be a few loops wide and should not be visible from under the hair.

Make the part and style the wig. With all the hair sewn in place, part the wig as you would do with a normal head of hair and cut the hair into your desired style.

If you are anxious about cutting the hair into a good or flattering style, you might want to ask a hair stylist for some tips or ask if he or she will cut the wig for you.

Tip: If you would like to color your hair I highly recommend doing that before constructing your wig.
