    Posted: Sep 20 2013 at 9:10pm
So I've been watching a bunch of YouTube video to learn how to make a wig. I thought I was ready but I'm running into a problem with the closure I bought. Instead of having mesh sides like this
lace
 
It looks like this
It basically only has mesh that spills over on top and none on the sides. What is on the sides looks like tape and it's very close to the actual hair
 
How am I supposed to sew the closure to the cap if there are no mesh sides? Is this a kind of closure that you can only glue?

You can still sew it down on three sides.  Don't sew down the front or if you do, use clear thread.  Some come with a ribbon around the edges.

But the hair is right on the edge. There's no virgin space for me to sew. Do I sew through the hair?

OK, I'm gonna try and do it like that. But there's hardly any space at all  Confused
 
I just realized I'm in TTT instead of weaves. Sorry about that

Bun the hair so you dont tangle the strands.

Is this something I should have asked when I ordered? Because I ordered another closure from another vendor and that one had side mesh... I'm a little confused

Ok, thanks. Been watching videos for the last 2 days and I thought I understood everything. I didn't expect to run into this. I'm gonna have to literally go through the strands. None of the videos I viewed had closures like that. So annoying...

Yeah if the strands are on that tiny lip......the key is keeping it flat and not pulling the thread too hard cause thats going to make it bunch.
