New Pictures

I wanted to show my progress...


I have realised a couple of things about this wig construction:

1. It would have been better if I had made the lace deeper and placed the monofilament galloon back further - this would help me to disguise the galloon easier. It would also mean I could start the crown further back on the head than I will be doing on this wig.

2. Having the extended nape adds more hair to the bulk density when you look at the wig. In future I would not opt to do this again unless I absolutely wanted to wear my hair up for a certain style/event.

3. Ventilating long hair takes a longer time than ventilating short hair due to pulling the hairs through the knot.


  1. Hi Wig Making Diva,

    I love how far you have come along with your wig making!!!

  2. It looks so cool and interesting!! does that mean you can cut hair as well or are those two separate skills??

    1. Thank you! Cutting hair is a separate skill. I have cut some of my wigs before and I cut the hair of family members, though I have had no formal training. I think if someone enjoys working with hair, is creative and fairly dextrous then they probably make a candidate for wig making and/or hair styling/cutting. There is a course in Haaretz by Galit Italia that teaches wig cutting/styling and I would love to attend.

  3. Hallo meine Liebe
    Ich denke die Perücke wird suuuuper. Sieht schon toll aus.
    Alles Liebe

    Deine Marsha
