One Day Wig

ONE DAY LACE FRONT WIG

     Make A Lace Front Wig in 1-Day

Amazingly... Yasmin made the Lace Front Wig she is wearing in less then 10 hours and she made it with just 4 - 5 ounces of weft human hair.

Her total cost for the hair and wig cap was around $200.00. The cost for creating any desired wig is based upon the hair length, the longer the hair the most is necessary to create your wig.

If you would like a quality inexpensive wig that does not self destruct within several weeks, then you should consider creating your own custom Lace Front Wigs... like the one Yasmin is wearing.

You may find this hard to believe that Yasmin created the wig she is wearing in less then ten hours. The reason why; is because of the way she created it the MHRW Way! Yes, she made it using the one-day MHRW Weft & Strand-by-Strand Method.

The one-day MHRW Weft & Strand-by-Strand Method is unique; you simply sew approximately 8 rows of weft track hair around the sides and rear areas of the wig cap; starting the first row at the nape of the neck and adding additional rows until you reach the top part area; and last you ventilate hair along the front hairline (temple-to-temple) and part areas to complete your wig.

Sound easy?...it is!

To create your custom Lace Front Wig you will need to purchase a MHRW Lace Front Wig Kit and some weft human hair.

Everything you need; wig making training, tools, and supplies are included in the MHRW Lace Front Wig Kit. except for the Weft Human Hair. The reason why the hair is not included with the Kit is because of the different hair complexities (color, length, and texture) relating to each persons personal needs.

Supplies Used

 

All that was needed to create this Lace Front Wig was a Wig Cap and 4 - 5 ounces of Weft Human Hair. The Weft Human Hair is sewn in rows to thesides and rear of the Wig Cap and the front hairline is ventilated using the strand-by-strand ventilating method. 

 

 

Instructions

OUTLINING THE WIG CAP

This photo shows the Monofilament Lace Front Wig Cap secured to a Wig Block. The markings are where Weft Human Hair is to be sewn to the Wig Cap. 

 

 

 

 

 

HAIR DIRECTION
This photo shows where each row of Weft Human Hair is sewn to the Wig Cap. Spacing the rows closer together allows thicker hair density. Spacing the rows further apart allows thinner hair density. 

 

The Weft Human Hair is sewn to the rear section of Lace Front Wig Cap. Hair is layered and sewn in a downward direction.

Step 1:  The first section of Weft is sewn at the bottom of the Wig Cap.

Step 2:  The remaining Weft Strips are sewn above each previous Weft Strip.

[Each weft strip is sewn above the previous weft strip, working towards the Monofilament Section at the top of the Wig Cap.]

OPTIONAL

Step 3: 
  

Hair may be ventilated (strand-by-strand) along the Wig Cap edge (as shown in the Red section of the above illustration) to achieve a natural appearing hairline and so the hair can be styled up.

 

 [You also have the option to ventilate hair strand-by-strand throughout the entire Wig Cap for an all hand-tied Lace Front Wig.]

 

FRONT HAIRLINE AND PART

In this photo the markings show where to sew the Weft Hair at the front of the Wig being made. The wide space in the front hairline and part areas is where hair must be tied in single strands (one hair only) to control the hair density and so the Wig has a natural looking front hairline and part.

 

 

 

The illustration shows a Lace Front Wig Cap, where Weft Hair is sewn to the top section of Lace Front Wig Cap. Hair is layered and sewn in the direction shown by the arrows.

Step 4:   Weft are sewn as shown up to the top area of the Lace Front Wig Cap (but not into the Red section).

[This process also hides the sewn edges of the weft strips.]

Step 5:   Hair is ventilated (strand-by-strand) along the (outlined) front and center part area Red section to provide a natural looking front hairline and part.  

 

 

This completes the making of the Lace Front Wig, however, there is still one very important step that must be done to finish the wig for wearing and so it has a natural looking front hairline that will last... and last... and last. Read 'Undercoating' to learn about this next.

Undercoating

 UNDERCOATING

After the you have finished creating your Lace Front Wig you must undercoat the front hairline.

Applying EasyTAB Compound to Monofilament Lace Netting

Lace Netting must be clean and dry.

Apply light 1st coat using a wet loaded brush. (Do not allow it to flow into hair.)

Step 1:   Load brush and apply where desired, however, do not apply a second time... where first applied. This will prevent compound from flowing into hair. The first coat secures hair in place, fills in the holes, dries clear and flat, and will look like hair growing from skin on hair side of wig... when dry.

 Let 1st coat dry for 1 hour before applying 2nd coat.

Step 2:  Apply 2nd coat using a wet loaded brush. Let dry for 24 hours before applying Tape or Adhesive. The second coat will smooth out the bonding surface to allow secure tape or adhesive bonding.

[If ever necessary, hair may be ventilated to your Lace Front Wig where EasyTAB COMPOUND has been applied.]

 

Applying EasyTAB Compound to French Lace Netting

French Lace Netting must be clean.

Step 1:   Apply light 1st coat using a damp loaded brush. (Do not allow it to flow into hair.)

Stroke brush across underside area(s) allowing brush to lightly touch hairs. The object is to apply only a tiny amount of compound to each hair so the hair is locked in place and tape will stick better. DO NOT TRY FILLING IN THE HOLES!

Let dry for 1 hour before applying 2nd coat.

Step 2:   2nd coat is not necessary.

[If ever necessary, hair may be ventilated to your Lace Front Wig where EasyTAB COMPOUND has been applied.]

Bonding

WIG BONDING INSTRUCTIONS

Use the following steps to secure your Lace Front Wig for wearing:

 Bonding Tape/Adhesive Application

Lace Front material must be clean for best bonding results.

Step 1:   Clean all areas where Tape/Adhesive is to be applied on Lace Front Wig and your own scalp target areas.

TIP:   We recommend using OptiSol Solvent for cleaning away any Tape/Adhesive residue from a Lace Front Wig or your skin.
            Why? Because according to customer's: They claim OptiSol Solvents work 2 - 3 times faster than any other solvent.

Step 2:   Apply Tape/Adhesive where desired on Lace Front Wig. 
                  (Do not remove tape shielding from 2nd side.)

Step 3:   Position Lace Front Wig as desired on your head.

When using Tape:

Step 4:   Turn edge(s) 'UP' (exposing where Tape/Adhesive has been applied to Lace Front Wig) and remove paper shielding from 2nd side of Toupee Tape.

Step 5:   Turn edge(s) back 'DOWN' (against your scalp) where Tape/Adhesive has been applied and press firmly with fingers to bond securely to your scalp.

 


Lace Front Wig Removal

Do not pull on hair to remove your Lace Front Wig. Removing your Lace Front Wig should be done very carefully to prevent damage to the hair or foundation.

TIP:   We recommend using OptiSol Solvent for cleaning away any Toupee Tape residue from Lace Front Wig or your skin.

TAPE/ADHESIVE CLEANING PROCESS

Step 1: 
  Spray OptiSol Solvent along front hairline. Next, part the hair just behind hairline area(s) where Toupee Tape has been applied and spray on more OptiSol Solvent.

Allow solvent to penetrate and soften tape edges for several minutes before removing wig.

Step 2:   Carefully lift edge of Lace Front Wig at front hairline temple (either side) and peel away Lace Front  Wig along front hairline. While lifting the edge of the Lace Front Wig, spray on more OptiSol Solvent as necessary to speed up the bond release.

Step 3:   After you have completely lifted and released the bond, clean and prepare your Lace Front Wig for wearing once again.
