Specs: 1 1/4 bundles of Roman's Chinese light yaki 22" split(the hair is very dense so two bundles looked too full imo)

14" CLY lace closure cut into bangs

Clairol developer 40 and Super Blue lightening packs were used to lighten the bottom. 

I used a dome cap and wig snaps from Sally's , needle and brown thread.

I was going for a piecey bang look instead of a full,blunt cut.


had to bun it on the mannequin first

This was my first time making a wig and I'm in love. Can't wait to get more hair to make anotherBig smile

ClapI have been contemplating using this closure I have sitting in my drawer that I'm afraid of and making a u-part with a bang but, I was afraid it wouldn't right for some reason! You're the first person who've seen do this! Your hair *two snaps!* looks so cute and I LOVE the bun -- perfect for the raising temps. I'm going to go buy a dome cap like tomorrow, over here acting like I can actually sew... I'll take my good sweet time.

@bklyngurl @tre Thank you! well the day before I sewed the hair onto a weaving net which ripped the second i put it on so i went back and educated myself on the type of cap i should actually use lol and then bought the dome cap and redid the whole thing. so if you do one definitely go with the dome caps .

Very pretty! With that dome cap, did your head feel hot and sweaty? Did you braid your hair underneath?

How do people have the skill to make wigs?!LOL

Putting one on is complex enough for me.

@Kurlie surprisingly, no it's not hot or sweaty underneath lol. and i have my hair under a plain wig cap/stocking cap under the wig.

Thank you guys!Big smile

I, too, love, love, love those bangs.  Would you consider creating a video of a walk through of the process of creating the wig?

 Thank you ladies!!!! I appreciate the love. 

@msvickydiva I don't think I'm gonna do a video but check out teasedblackpearlz wig tutorial on youtube. I followed her to make this one and she made it very simple

@loveyessie lol my forehead gets hot sometimes but its not completely intolerable  

@princessbbw   It just needed a little readjusting. no pineapples .Wink

You look lovely I love the way it came out Smile Does anyone have any knowledge on how to make a full lace wig. I am starting to think it is some top secret thing because I cannot find how to make one anywhere on the internet. I don't wanna purchase one anymore I have researched every vendor and they all got bad reviews, RPGshow The virgin hair fantasy popular companies like those I was willing to spend 800 dollars on thank God for honest reviews.
