BeWeave it or not it’s a wig…

I Love doing hair, and although I do all different kinds of things to hair, like braiding, cutting, coloring, dreading, I have been putting in weaves the longest. Since I was 16 years old and I am now…but This is the first time I have made myself a wig. I went on youtube and there you have it. You really can learn to do just about anything, it’s awesome. I had a couple of kinks to work out because my wig would be special due to the shaved section of my hair that I would not be covering. Here are some pics of the struggle, I mean process…

First let me show you some befores…

I starting growing my dreads in 2012. Because they are starting to get rather long, I have to find creative ways to fit them under the weave/wig.

The process took a little longer for various reasons but yeah half way through I stopped for a cookie break. Not no ordinary cookie okay, it had brownie on the inside. Okay back to work, I had to rig the manikin head because it kept sliding around in circles. I do have it attached to the table with the clamp but that is the reason you see a piece of cloth under the head, between the manikin and the clamp, and one of the reasons why it took a little longer than expected. The other is the reason why you see the rubber band holding the wig cap on the head. I had to cut out the mesh where my shaved hair would be so when the hair became heavy in the back, the wig kept falling off. Where there is a will, there is a way. This quote is very true.

The afters…
