Step 1 – set up
Place your wig head on a wig stand or set it down on a chair or table with tape. Ensure that the wig head is stable so that it is easy to construct.
Step 2 – prep
Make sure that you get a wig cap that fits your head perfectly. Place the wig cap on the mannequin head.
Lay the closure piece down first on the center where you want to create your part. Place it on the front of the head and secure it down with pins. Ensure that the closure is smooth and flat. And then sew the bundle second.
Stitch the lace closure to the wig cap using a curved needle and weaving thread. Make tight knots, especially at the beginning and the end of your stitching to make sure that the lace closure is secured.
Begin to sew the human hair bundles down row by row with your hair bundles and remember to leave an even amount of space between each track you lay down on your cap. Repeat these steps until you have reached the top of the head at the seam of the lace closure.
Step 6 – wig band and combs
Add a wig band and wig combs to the inside of your wig to secure the wig and make it a more snug fit when wearing. The comb should be placed one on each side of the head and one at the back too. Test the fit of the wig and trim the lace if needed. After this step, your wig is all set. It is time to style your wig. You can leave it at that if you like. If not, you can use heat shaping tools to curl, straighten or style to your preference. You can even use scissors to cut the hair into a blunt cut bob wig or layer it.
