Wearing a wig today is quite common. Unlike in the 80’s, 90’s, and the beginning of the millennium, wigs were not as popular as in the 60’s. During that decade, all the girl groups and movie stars would not dare go on stage or camera without their bouffant style.
Today, wigs are popular once again, and look more natural than ever. The local beauty supply is, in most cases, filled wall to wall with all types of wigs from cheap synthetic to top of the line human.
The only problem with going to purchase a wig at the local beauty supply is the style, fit, and cut may not be exactly what you’re looking for. I can’t tell you the countless times and many hours I have spent in beauty supplies looking for that “perfect” wig.
Fortunately today, there are many hairstylist that offer custom wig making with lace fronts or closures with human hair at a fraction of the price that a similar wig would cost in the beauty supply.
Don’t mistake that statement with “cheap” wigs. I have seen wigs that are of high quality at the beauty supply cost as much as $1500. But you can have one made for half that, or make it yourself for a fraction of the cost.
Many women in this day and age are extremely savvy when it comes to styling their own hair. Also, there are countless tutorials on how to create the perfect wig. Below is a video that shows you just how easy it is if you’re modestly skilled in creating your own weaves and wigs.
In the video, the preferred company for the materials needed is based in the United Kingdom. But don’t fret if you live in North America. The U.S. based company Mayvenn has all the hair materials you need, and you can find the elastic bands, wig stand, and wig making supplies on Amazon.
Also, Mayvenn offers a 30 Day Guarantee with free shipping, so it’s really a no brainer. So if you think you’re ready to start making your own wigs, YouTube is a great place to start. Happy Wig Making!
