Tutorial: Weft Supplement by taeliac Tutorial: Weft Supplement by taeliac
You can view the video tutorial here


This is a text-based supplement to go with the video for making sewn wefts for wigs.

This is how I learned how to make them, and I hope it helps you out, too. I know that there are many different methods out there, but I have not had any success with the "no sew" wefts made with caulk (the hair tends to pull out, even out of wigs I've purchased from the 'originator' of that method, which shed even worse than my attempts at home-made one's) and I take exception to most of the other tutorials out there by cosplayers - there are certain aspects of wefts that just get ignored or bowled over just because.

I dun like that, so here is how I've learned how to do them, and I hope you can learn something from them, too.

There will be a follow-up later on (i.e. whenever the hell I can get filming it) about how to sew the wefts into a wig.

Please, I beg of you not to repost/redistribute/steal this tutorial.

Okay, I have to ask, do you use real hair, or the fake hair? What kind do you use?

I usually use synthetic hair for these things - usually, Kanekalon (I think that's how you spell it :O) bundles of hair. I've worked with real hair, but it's way easier to actually ventilate (knot) in than synthetics, although it takes forever to do :faint:
