How to Make Your Own Wig
Most people are surprised to know how easy it is to make your own wig. Making your own wig offers many benefits including custom fit, specific style tweaks all your own, and a more comfortable and better quality wig. When you make your own wig, you choose the color, style and fullness of the wig, as well. This ensures that you are getting a wig that is perfectly suited to you. Finally, when you make your own wig, you are actually saving money, more often than not, because wigs can start at $25 and go up to the thousands. So whether you are looking for a fun costume wig for your next masquerade party or want to try a new hairstyle in a non-committal fashion, learn how to make your own wig and walk away happy.
Here are the basic steps for how to make your own wig:
Styrofoam head ($5)
Loose packs or wefts of hair (AVG: $5-20/pack)
Bonding glue/glue gun or I and C needles and thread
Any additional perks (hair dye, embellishments, rhinestones, butterflies etc.)
- Place parchment paper under the wig cap so the glue/needle doesn't stick to the head.
- Take hair out of the package and lay it out according to how you will be attaching it to the cap for a quicker and less complicated process.
- When sewing the weft above the ears, sew all the way around and end off above the eye.
- Bangs should be done last.
