What are the types of the wig?
There are different types of wig such as lace front, human hair, synthetic hair, monofilament, and full lace. The type of wig you want to wear is completely your personal preferences and you can choose or make the one you like the most.
Essentially, this wig covers your head’s forefront. It has lace in the front. A thicker cap covers the remainder of the head. The cap has sewn clips, which allows for holding the wig onto your head.
As the name indicates, this type of wig is made of human hair. This type of hair wig is usually expensive. The human hair wig is available on the market and the online stores.
Unlike human hair wig, synthetic ones are more popular. They are available in fashion stores across the country. Compared to human hair wigs that are expensive, synthetic hair comes with affordable prices – that won’t break the bank. It is important to test the sample before buying synthetic wigs.
Beauty experts recommend these wigs for people who have a sensitive scalp. It takes on the color of your scalp when you wear it. The monofilament looks realistic and the hair seems to come out from the hair follicles.
These wigs are for people who want to cover their entire heads. Full lace hair is good but you need to avoid buying synthetic ones as they contain chemicals and contaminants, which can affect your skin. On the other hand, a much better choice is the human hair wig that not only provides good layers but also greater flexibility.

Step-By-Step Wig Making Guide
You need to implement or apply or go through the following steps to make a gig. Continue reading!
1. Prepare Wig Head and Hair Extensions
First, you need to mount the head of your wig on the stand. Also, you can set it down on a table or chair with tape. Make sure you stabilize the wig while making it. This will make the entire procedure easier to carry out and complete.
Next, you need to work on the hair extensions. Measure and cut the extensions. Then, fit the circumference of your wig cap and secure them down from front to back and vice versa.
Make sure you start laying the wig in a U-shape pattern. This is a unique type of pattern, which helps you to connect or attach the threading to the cap. Don’t forget to secure the hair extensions – for example, secure it using your supplies such as threat, needle, blow dryer, hair glue, etc.
Although needle & threat is a secure method, they take quite enough time to install. On the other hand, you can use either hot glue or hair glue. No matter which one you use, both are fast. Some people say that hot glue is more durable. Since it is hot, you need to use it with caution.
2. Frontal, Closure, and Track
The second step is about making a decision. Do you want a frontal wig or a closure one? No matter which one you create, you need to lay down the piece first and then add the hair extensions. This allows you to know the number of hair extensions you need. Once you know this, you can make an accurate wig.
Next, carefully cover the cap of hair with track extensions. This is an important step of the entire wig making process as you place the tracks on the hair cap. Remember, you need to decide the style. There are hundreds of styles. Again, it’s your personal preference and choice.
Wig Band and Style
A wig band is essential for the security of your hair. Make sure you add or attach a wig band. Don’t forget to add the wig combs as they are good when you wear the wig. Remove any lace if you tend to make a frontal wig.
Once you complete the full wig, it is your personal preference on how you want to style the wig. We suggest you cut the wig’s front into blunt bangs. Lastly, following the steps above, you can make a stylish and beautiful wig that will certainly suit your personality.
