What’s the correct way to make a wig? The answer is that there isn’t one. If the basic techniques and methods are followed and the end result is a beautifully crafted wig, how does it matter how the result was achieved. It is massively unhelpful for experienced wig makers to critique a method because it is different from their own. Keep on producing your amazing work and smile sweetly the critics.

Bad Wig Making Will Always Show



Now there is a wrong way to create a wig. Bad work will always show. Hair knotted in the wrong directions. Hair density too thick, or thin. Lace foundations badly whipped. Lack of tension which results in a badly fitting wig.

The incorrect way is just due to badly executed wig work and practices. It is not because of the style and method used.
