No glue invisible part sew in. This chick is the TRUTH! I'm copying her style Sunday (if I don't chicken out again) and I'm soo excited. Anyone here use a no part method?
And what's the best BSS? My youtube research is pointing me to Bobbi Boss but I'm pretty sure that's not sold around here (north Jersey). Any ideas?

I think I understand the stitching and the back of the head. You just fold over until you reach your ears.

But the top still has me confused. Do you just start at your ear and go it a big circle all around the top until you close? How far apart should you sew the top, like a finger or two?

If you have a horseshoe perimeter you just continue to sew the hair like the back. Back and forth. It will naturally take the shape of the "U" leave out since you're sewing around the horseshoe leave out anyways.
So you sew in the shape of a "U". If you dont have any leave out except your perimeter, just continue to sew up top like you did at the back, side to side.

IMO the back should be the fullest so you can just sew that right ontop of the weft below. Up top i like to leave so space inbetween the weft so that it doesnt look too bulky, but at the same time i dont wanna leave too much space inbetween because i dont want any tracks showing ofcourse. So i would say leave about the width of your pinky inbetween the wefts. Like this much:

This is my Wags Malaysian 16/20 8 ounces which I REMOVED right after these pics. I just prefer curly hair on be better this was too plain for me. It was air dried, no product was added, was not styled either. It is my third time installing it and I was only feeling it the first install. Unfortunately I have no pictures of it styled:( Only of last night's install. Keep in mind that each install was only a week long...

Oh, and please excuse the naked, tired face!





I will be back with the new install I have now!

Thanks for the info honeybee! But I do full installs so would you braid in a circle for that?

If you leave a pinky width at the top how much at the back? Same?
