The vedio on how to make a wig with lace clsoure and hair bundles:

The process of making a closure wig :

Setp 1. Blenching the knots. When creating a lace closure, you’d better bleach the lace so that it appears more natural and will look like the color of your scalp. Or you can also get by with adding makeup concealer or foundation to the closure.

Setp 2. Now bring out the black wig cap and place it on the top of the mannequin head. The first thing you should do is secure your closure on to the cap and pin it in the exact location. Once the closure is secured, you begin sewing the it on to the cap.

Using a simple back and forth stitch as the sewing technique. In this way you will find the hair lays a lot flatter than the “blanket method”. Using this simple stitch will save time and make the process smoother when sewing the closure.

Setp 3. When it comes down to sewing you bundles on to your wig cap, there are a lot of different ways you can try things. For beginners I would suggest cutting the tracks it's a lot easier and still creates a flawless finish. I would measure how long you need the wefts to be, pin one end to the cap on the wig head and begin sewing. For more experienced wig manufacturers, you can try the flip method, which does not involve cutting the track, but instead scrolls one track on one track. This method can be more time consuming, but it does create a voluminous fuller wig. You can also have a full wig by cutting the tracks, but you would probably have to stack them one on top of the other.

Setp 4. Repeat the third step until you sew the bundles to the top and cover up the wig cap.

Setp 5. Now you can style your wig.

2.How To Make A Quick Weave Wig?

The things you’ll need:

*Hair weave 

*Hair spray


*Protective wig cap (natural hair color or hair color);

*Wig clip

*Needles and thread

The vedio on how to do a qucik weave:

The process of making a quick weave wig: 

Step 1: Use a wig cap to hold the hair and measure the first track at the bottom of the wig cap. After the measurement, you will cut according to the arrangement from one end to the other.

Note: always start from the longest length, even if you want to cut the style

Step 2: After cutting the track of the measured hair bundle, the woven adhesive will be applied to the hair bundle. Leave it for about five to seven seconds to dry and stick to it.

Step 3: Track the hair and place it on the hat. Apply pressure when pressing the tress on the cap.

Step 4: Repeat steps 1 through 3.

Step 5: After reaching the top of the cap, you will cut off the excess cap material for the desired part. This will make your natural hair look natural.

Step 6: Use a needle and thread or super glue to add a wig to fix the position of the wig.

Step 7: Use a thin, straight hair bundle and use a deeper side section for this look. The longer the bangs, the better the appearance, but any length can be.

4. How To Put On A Wig?

With glue methods:

Setp 1. Clean the scalp with soap and water to ensure that the application area is free of oil.

Setp 2. Spray the scalp protectant directly onto your head as a barrier between the skin and the adhesive.

Setp 3. Apply adhesive: Apply your favorite edge control product or gel and use your fingers to lower the edges to make them perfect.

Note: If using a viscous gel, use a small makeup brush or a make-up stick to apply a thin layer over the entire hairline. Do not wear a wig immediately if you use a soft adhesive. Wait until the glue gets sticky. If a hard adhesive is used, the wig can be used immediately because this type of glue can be bonded immediately.

Setp 4. Put on the wig: Wear the wig on the hairline of the midline of the forehead. Gently press the edge of the wig against the adherent skin and work around the hairline until it is secured around the hairline. If for lace wigs, cut the extra lace along the hairline.

Setp 5. Wig styling: Pull down the wig and adjust as needed. Separate wigs as needed. In addition, you can use cosmetics such as eye shadow or liquid foundation to ensure that the hairline and lace are more natural.

Can I use yarn to make this?

Yes. To get a realistic look, tie it to the legs of the chair with a single yarn. A small amount of yarn is then tied to the drawn yarn. Brush the fine-toothed comb or pet brush with ether, then brush the yarn bundle until it forms a soft, delicate, hair-like texture. The hair is hot and then ironed. After finishing the thread, use the sewing machine to create the same line as the hair extension. Then follow the steps above.

Should I put the longest hair bundle on the top or bottom of the wig?

You should always crop and style the wigs to get the most natural look, so it doesn't matter where they are placed, but if you don't want to make a fish, I suggest you put them on top.
