Each of the four styles has its own characteristics. Choose the one you like. Let me take a look at the tools you need to make a wig.

Adjustable Dome Wig Cap

Lace Closure

How many bundles are in a wig?

If your wig will be short ranging between 8 to 14 inches, then you will need two bundles. However, if you want it longer in the 14 – 22-inch range, then purchase three bundles. If you want really full and thick hair, then past 20 inches I would recommend four bundles.

In general, the longer the strand, the more hair is usually needed. All raw hair will naturally be thinning towards the tip, and if you choose long hair it is recommended to use more strands to give a fuller appearance from the root to the tip. Shorter hair will require fewer strands. 

The choice of lace closure and lace frontal is different and the hair bundle is different. So let's talk a little bit about what lace closure and lace frontal are.

Lace closure

Closures are usually 4 x 4 lace closure piece and can sit either directly in the middle of the crown of your head. Closures are installed in the “horseshoe” area of the head to close off the style, hence the name closure.

Lace frontal

A lace frontal is a half wig that goes from ear to ear. It is typically sewn with three to four bundles of hair. Common front lace is 13*6 lace frontal and 13*4 lace frontal. The standard size for a lace frontal is 13×4.

The preparatory work

Mount your wig head on a wig stand or set it down on a chair or table with tape. When building a wig, it's important to make sure it's stable.

Preparing the Hair

Make sure your hair is high-quality virgin hair. Hair wefts- about three bundles should suffice and you can either choose one length if you want to achieve a gradually layered look or several different lengths to keep the overall length more consistent. You can choose a lace closure or a lace frontal.

Creating the Wig

You will need to bring out your weave cap and place that on top of your mannequin head.

Position the lace frontal and fasten it to the wig cap and model.  Sew the fixed lace frontal onto the wig cap. Then draw the starting curtain on the wig cap to sew the U-shaped track. In turn, sew the hair curtain along the U apricot track onto the wig cap.

Then draw the starting curtain on the wig cap to sew the U-shaped track. In turn, sew the hair curtain along the U apricot track onto the wig cap. After the sewing is done we need to work on the hairline to create the feel of the baby hair. After a little pruning, it's done.
