I am going to make a u part wig and attach a closure on it. I have two concerns. 

1) I've never been thru an airport security so excuse my silly questions in advance LOL I'm worried about going through airport security with a wig on. I'm using the wig to help grow my hair out and it's mostly likely going to be at least a 2 year thing until I reach my goal of MBL. Are there any alternatives like plastic wig clips to prevent having airport security snatch my wig off? Embarrassed

2) I wear a CI, so I have a magnetic piece inside my head and the CI has a magnetic piece. These magnetic pieces connect together with the CI outside of my skull. It's to help me hear. So my concern is the wig. I've worn clip in extensions and the piece was able to connect on top of all the hair. But sometimes hair can block the connection to keep it on. So I figure, if I'm going to have not only hair but a type of material for the wig underneath the wig, it may make the connection harder. I'm unsure of what I will make the wig of (a dome, regular wig cap, etc) but I was hoping to get suggestions on what type of material to make the wig off would be best for both my purposes in wearing a wig and for not interfering with the connection of a magnetic piece. If it does, I won't be able to hear. Unhappy

Hey peace and love - I put some tips about airport travel in my posting to make your wig look its best.  It is around page 7or so.
I think you might be best sewing it down but I did go on the plane with pins in my hair.  I just told the travel security right up front what my situation was to avoid the drama.  I was held to the side and my hair was inspected so I'm sure they will do the same for you if your wig is not sewn down.
The other question, I'm not sure, I'd check you tube.
Not to discourage you but U part wigs are not that easy to make, its not just sewing the hair it is the cutting and styling.  read my post about cutting a lace wig open into a U PART wig.  I have videos and links to show you how to do it.  It is also in the same to make your wig look its best.
