1. Take your head measurement from the frontal to the back, ear to ear, and around the hairline for the circumference to ensure the measurements are accurate.

2. Place the wig head on the wig stand.

3. Take measurement of the extension hair and cut them fitty the wig cap circumference.

4. Secure the lace closure at the frontal of the cap and use the thread and needle to sew it from the edge all around.

5. Lay the tracks down in a U-shaped pattern as you create the wig. This is the step where you will need a blow dryer, glue stick, needle and thread, and hair glue.

6. After you sew the track all the way to the closure, cut all the excess track after securing it with a knot.

7. Use tweezers to pluck the hairs on the closure to make the wig look like a real hair. Cut the excess wig cap that peek under the lace.
