Last year, I decided to start taking care of my natural hair. My hair stylist advised me to stay away from weaves and let my hair breathe. I wont lie,it has been a serious challenge, but so far so good, I haven’t had a weave installed in two months. Yayyy me!!.

I knew that i wasn’t ready to go around every time with my hair, so i decided to make a wig. As i had no idea on how to make one, the salon was my next call. I asked them to make me a u- part wig and gave them my hair extensions. Upon collection, i was charged higher than we initially agreed on and my precious hair extensions looked obviously scantier(that’s the one that pained me the most). So i vowed never to repeat such in my life, yes that’s how annoyed i was.

A thousand youtube tutorials after, i felt ready for the world!.lol. It took me two whole days to make this wig, so don’t be fooled by how easy it looks when you watch those tutorials.

Here’s how i made it.

What you’ll need:
 I shaped needles
Weaving net/dome cap/ whatever you feel like using
 Hair extensions
Wig stand (a Styrofoam head is a better option, but i didn’t know where to get one)
Scunci combs/ wig combs(below)

When i was done sewing all the hair to the weaving net, i cut out the L shaped space i had drawn out on the net(sorry i didn’t take a photograph of it) so i could leave my hair out. I attached the scunci combs and Voila!!.

I think i did a pretty good job although i would have preferred if the fringe covered half of my forehead, but it didnt work out. What do you guys think?
