Wigs are one of the best accessories for women, especially if they have thinning hair. But not only that, wigs can change a person’s entire look even without having hair issues.
But the art of wig making is a very specialized skill. And you need advanced knowledge to make a wig for cancer patients and other people whose scalp is sensitive. Plus, the type of base to create, weight and type of hair are all very important.
There’s also the process of ventilating. Hair ventilation is the process of knotting individual strands of hair into a wig cap or lace foundation. This painstaking process is very popular due to the lace front wig trend. Although you can find lace front wigs in any beauty supply store, they are mass produced.
The Art Of Wig Making
As stated above, you can find front lace wigs in just about any beauty supply store. However, these wigs are not customized to suit your unique look and style. Instead, they are mass produced in a factory and sewn using machines.
How many times have you set out to purchase a wig, but the store didn’t have your desired color? Or the exact look or length you wanted? What if I told you that you can have all of that and more?
Well, my darlings, you can! From front lace wigs to cranial hair prosthesis medical wigs to fashion hats with hair attached. And, in any style, hair color, texture and length you want. How is that possible, you might ask? The answer is Louticia Grier.
