It’s All About Wig Making: Learning To Make The highest
After I spent some time simply practicing ventilation – single and double knots – on small pieces of tulle, I decided that a good mini-project to get me began would be to learn to make the highest of a wig. This might also constitute useful practice at making a topper or closure as essentially such hair items cover a few of, or the whole of, that area.
Ventilating technical points with making the crown and the vertex, for my part, centre around the next:
1. Real looking movement and placement of hair on the crown and “corners” of the rear vertex, with a view to simulate bio hair growth
2. The part line being sensible
3. Establishing the right density for the person – not wanting it too “pouffy” or “wiggy”
4. Graduated density on the front hair line
5. A hair line that’s not too ‘excellent’ or moon-shaped trying
6. Neat, small knots
So far I’ve managed to conquer no 1 and number 3. I get there on number 4, 5 and 6. Quantity 2 is tougher at this stage. I’m still working out tips on how to make the part line how I would like it. I would ideally wish to do a drawn by means of part line. I do not thoughts having a hard and fast half line at this stage, as I believe doing a whole drawn-by way of vertex would be too bold and loads of work.
So here is some pictures of the WIP (work-in-progress) –
I have truly almost finished it, so I will put up pictures of the ultimate piece shortly.
This work was finished on the styrofoam head as I had but to buy the canvas wig block. The hair piece is made utilizing tulle with blue paper beneath to focus on the tulle/hair and to cut back eye strain. It has double knots within the lower again portion & single hairstyles with bangs medium length hair knots on the rest. I used a mixture of a #1 and #2 needle – the #1 is perfect for doing single hair knots and the #2 is good for picking up 2 hairs for the decrease back the place you might want more density.
The hair used was cut from the wefts of an previous processed human hair wig. The draw back of using any such hair for apply and/or for making an actual wearable hair piece or wig is that it may be variable in thickness, strand colour and sturdiness. A number of the strands in the hair I’ve been using are very thick and dark, others are incredibly nice and virtually translucent, while the remainder are extra what I would name normal. When ventilating using the very thick or effective strands, there could be fairly a little bit of breakage, so I have tended to bin these hairs. I might certainly not use hair like this to make something apart from a observe piece or apply wig. The hair quality is extraordinarily poor and it is not price the effort at hand tie all this hair for precise carrying! However, I’d positively recommend using hair like this to observe with at first. Later you may want to switch to a hair type that mimics or is identical as what you will be using to make your first wearable wig or hair piece. For example, I need to in the end use caucasian or European hair, so in some unspecified time in the future I’ll change to that in order hairstyles with bangs medium length hair to get a feel for it. It is far finer than the hair I am at the moment using and I will, likely, want to use a really small/effective needle. I will even experiment with Indian remy hair as that is one other hair kind that I might like to use.
