How to Sew on a Wig
Lace wigs provide the most realistic looking results because they have a sheer cap, which allows portions of your scalp to show through the wig when the hair is parted. Thread a hair weaving needle with 18 (46 cm) of thread and tie a knot in the end. Part the wig hair just behind your ears going up and over your hunch.
Sew into your braided natural hair from ear to ear and underneath it; if you’re wearing a frontal wig, sew along or near the back edge of the frontal; and the last places you’ll need to sew are areas where you don’t normally part the wig hair. Human hair wigs are the most versatile and high-quality wigs available. Synthetic wigs can be blow dried, styled, and even dyed.
How long does a wig sew-in last?
