February 14, 2011 Wig Tutorial for beginners
I always joke around about being a Hair Consultant because I don't know how to "do" hair. I was wrong. Truth is, I have never tried. Practice makes perfect, right? Recently Sister A, was brave enough to let me practice making a wig for her. Hope you enjoy my tutorial, remember! Its for beginners :-)
You can purchase everything at your local Beauty Supply Store
Adjustable wig cap
Weave (hair extensions)
Thread and needle
Clips to put the hair in place
Outre Premium Duby Closure
Thumb tacks to keep the cap from shifting while you sew
I didn't want to take chances on trying to close the top myself so this came in very handy
Wig caps range from as low as $1.99 to $5.99
I went for the $5.99 option
1. Adjustible straps
2. Durable elasticity
3. Boning by the ears for support
4. Extra reinforcement on the top
I used the old fashioned thick thread
My technique wasn't too shabby for my first try :-)
Start sewing the hair in a circular pattern all the way around until you get to the top
This is where I attached the closure
The End Result
Time to flat iron it OUT!
GHD Professional flat iron
Metal tip tail comb
Scissors to clean up the bangs
Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Nourishing Sheen Spray™
& some Kenny G playing in the background :-P
2 packs of 8" (Color #1 & #1b)
I love the blend!
Stay tuned for the big reveal!
February 2, 2011 Invisible part - No glue
Hello divas! This is the creator of Crown Chronicles letting you in on a step by step tutorial on my invisible part weave sew in without any glue. I am currently transitioning from relaxed to natural. Its been about 7 months now so I either have my weave sewn in with the invisible part for a side sweep or a full normal closure for a fringe bangs.
The Braid Up
This part takes a bit of time
If it's not braided properly, can ruin the entire look
The key is to sew the tracks very, very close together
All sewn in, absolutely NO glue
Nice and simple. Curled with a flat iron
