Headband Wig

Step About to Make the Headband Wig:

Step 1: Secure the wig cap on the canvas head.

Adjust the canvas head on the stand. Set the wig cap on the canvas head. Secure the wig’s cap on the desired place with t-pins on the canvas head. This process needs to apply t-pins on the wig’s cap band at the front and back.

Step 2: Secure the Headband on the wig’s cap.

Take the headband that is purchased to attached to the wig for making it the headband wig. That headband is in a circular form; cut it in the middle. Now it is in straight form.

Place headband on the wig’s cap while keeping a part of headband slightly above than wig’s band. Secure in that place with t-pins till the estimated part of behind the ears. At this time, you have unsecured headband’s ending parts at the canvas head’s nape of the neck.

We suggest you put the backside of the headband upward where its seam is showing in this process. So that when you wear the wig and opt to fold the attached headband, the seam will not destroy the look.

Step 3: Stitch the Headband to the wig cap.

Now take the curved needle with double thread. Start sewing it from the middle front and sew both sides. Do not sew the unsecured parts that you left at the nape of the neck. Please note that do not sew the headband on the wig’s band; it will be removed. Also, try to stitch closely so that headband will not rip a section.

Step 4: Add the First Track to the wig’s cap.

Take the first track from an old extension and secure it with t-pins on the wig’s lower backside. Use the curved needle having a double thread in it. Put knots in each stitch so that wefts will not leave their place. Maybe the hair got tangled in the process, so use a fine comb on the hair to avoid more tangles in other stitches and go further.

Step 5: Add More Tracks:

As you sew the first track, keep adding more in that way on the back of the canvas head. When you reach above the crown of the canvas head, it starts to form a U-shape. When you are reaching the front of the head, by adding wefts, the U-shape getting smaller. At this time, you will need smaller width wefts to cover the front of the head.

Step 6: Adding combs/clips and velcro.

Now, hair is installed/stitched all over the wig cap, and the headband has been attached.

It’s time to add wig combs/clips inside the wig cap. Install two combs at the front and one at the back. Also, add velcro to the added headband’s two ending sides, which we left at the back of the canvas head.

Step 7: Cut the wig’s Headband.

As all the above process is done, the wig’s cap, not on the wig’s band; even the headband is stitched on the wig cap. It is the right choice to cut the wig’s band because it is very tight to wear.
