Sorry. I had to post this as a poll because I dont permission from bhm to start a new topic. I tired of my sew and I want to make a UPART wig a lace closure piece. I watch a million youtube videos. There a certain way you ladies make your uparts wigs?

any tips or advice?

Do you use spandex cap or a net weaving cap with adjustable straps? I can't find any dome caps. 

do you sew or glue.

I curious because I dont want to take my weave out and try to make a u part and it does fit right.

do you recomend sewing the lace closure on before or after? what about sewing the closure onto the cap and not your braids?

if someone can link me to through a tutorial on here, that would be nice

I see on a bunch of videos they do the closure first or before they finish sewing down the tracks closer to the front. Good luck making your own because I bought a premade one from a cv and it was a big NOPE.

I have never been able to master this. No matter how I measure, cut or do it the cap is always to big for my head. I can't figure it out.

Use a deluxe weaving cap(looks like a sewing net has adjustable straps in the back)

I use dome caps and I make mine on a sewing machine. 
here's a YT link on how to get a better fitting cap

If you going to make a lace closure wig sew the closure down first. I'm actually starting a wig making business so I can make the wig for you if you like. or you can  get your wig made by these lady's

I don't use a closure on my U parts, but when I 1st started making them, I used the spandex/dome caps. Now I use the deluxe weaving cap and I'm in love. It's so lightweight and airy and it dries so much quicker than the spandex/dome caps. I thought it would be too flimsy and too small, (I have a big azz head and some thick arse hair), but it works great. I do leave out a good bit of hair, so maybe that's why it still works for my big head.
I'll never go back to a spandex/dome cap.

I use dome caps and swim caps. I sew the closure on first and then the wefts around it. HTH

I will get itchy when have been with the spandex caps for long time.  I know many others wear by this cap but it has no ventilation so my hair cannot breathe.
could you please send us some pictures of the deluxe weaving cap? how to get a one deluxe weaving cap?
