- Styling Notes
- I started with a waist length black wig and added wefts of hair along the hairline. Knowing that the final design would weigh quite a bit I sewed a thick plastic mesh under the netting of the wig for support. I then began separating the forehead pieces into small “bumps” by adding ratted yaky hair underneath and then smoothing the wig hair over it. I secured each section with needle and thread. I then added two larger “bumps” at the temples/ear area in the same fashion. Using donut shaped sponges I created two large buns in the back of the wig by pulling sections of hair thru the center hole of the sponges. I then wrapped the hair around the sponges and secured using needle and thread. Next, I created two long braids using three packs of silky hair and wrapped them around the buns and sewed them into place. For the hair loops I began by painting six bendable curlers using black spray paint. Next I cover the curlers with loose silky hair securing the hair using rubber bands and freezing spray. Then I began shaping the curler into circles, once I had the shape I desired I heat set the fibers using a blow dryer and more freezing spray. I then trimmed the loose hair even with the curlers and sealed using caulk. When dry I attached the loops to the wig by sewing them into the underlying mesh support. In some areas I used hot glue to help secure them. The remaining wig hair was split into two sections, the upper section I wove around the air loops and sewed into place. The lower section was split into multiple smaller braids, two were made into loops and the rest were left long. I then added gold beading to the braids as well as gold spray painted flowers throughout the back of the wig.
