How to Make a Wig

Making a wig for everyday use can be a difficult, time-consuming task, so it usually gets left up to the professionals. If you’re interested in trying to make a wig yourself, however, you can do so as long as you have the right tools and plenty of patience. Here’s how to do it.

1.Measure around the head at the hairline.[1] Use a cloth tape measure to measure along the hairline. The tape measure should extend from the base of your hairline at your neck to the top of your hairline at the forehead.

  • The tape measure should wrap just above the ears on either side of your head.
  • Do not pull the tape measure. It should lie flat against flattened hair, but it should not be taut.

2 .Measure down the center top of your head. Place the end of a cloth tape measure at the center of your forehead, matching the end of the tape measure to the beginning of your natural hairline. Drape the tape measure over the crown of your head and down to the middle of the nape, where you natural hairline ends.

  • As before, do not pull the tape measure. It should lie flat against flattened hair without being taut.

Lace Wig

Many people love lace front wigs for their versatility and believability. The lace at the front mimics a natural hairline, allowing you to pull the wig away from your face in a variety of hairstyles. Applying a lace front wig is easy and fast. First, flatten your hair and prepare your skin. Next, make adjustments to the wig such as tightening straps and trimming the lace. Last, apply any adhesive or wig tape and pull on your wig. Once your wig is perfectly arranged, you can style it any way you’d like!
