Wig Tutorial

by Charles Harding originally published in keep To The Code

These Tutorials to be made earlier in 2008, please refer to KTTC or Charles personally for any new information. (tutorial source) My very first wig was layered and also that presented a problem and also I had actually to execute some major cutting. This one size wig will enable me to reduced the hair as required to complement up v the dreads. Many of the promo shots that Johnny Depp renders his wig look at off black #1B. This color chart is what I need to reference ya"ll to the various colors and numbers. Ns was interested in tool or Dark Brown. Mine Choices:Here is the wig i am going v in tool brown. That is shoulder length and has bangs. It additionally has the skin lid in the top which is a first for me!

*

The all at once length the the hair on the wig is 16-18 customs so over there is NO cutting REQUIRED! i think I will still end up make a separate earlier ponytail and attach it to the wig. I may experiment through the wig hair for a ponytail but it may be a little bit short!

*

My only concern around my wig is the the hair were not as wavy or lengthy as few of my ref pics yet I supplied a hair dryer and went to town on the wig. here are web links to one 8 part "How To make Captain Jack Sparrow dreads" video clip tutorial. NO ONE should have any type of issues v their Captain Jack wig ever again! whether you are absent dreads, desire to include more, or desire to begin from scratch! right here is the the optimal of dread close up. Note the heavy duty subject binding at the optimal of the dread. This end will be sewn into the wig mesh cap.

I have started the mixed color dreads making use of off black mixed with light brown and dark brown mixed with irradiate brown. The effects are quite good. Ns hope to movie that technique of mixing 2 colors and also steaming.

*
*

I do the efforts the boiling technique last night as a test. I boiled part dreads on an initial wig plenty of years ago and didn"t choose the effect so ns went v steaming. When again ns remember why ns don"t favor boiling. The dreads tho unravel yes, really easily and I had actually to heavy steam this dread. Researching the boiling technique I discovered out that countless websites recommend boiling but that is because that small, skinny dreads or at least that is what they to be making were really tiny dreads with a one of around 1/8 come 1/4 inches. Mine dreads are running between 3/4 come 1 1/2 inch diameter and the boiling definitely is no working... Get ye butt down to your nearest "home store" (Anna"s Linens, Bed Bath and Beyond, etc.) and get yourself a steamer! the is the only means to steam! an ext STEAM! boiling - Uh Uh! Hair dryer - wait is too hot and also too dry. The heat and moisture native the water is what shrinks down the Kanekalon hair!

*

I"ve been making these dreads walk on 3 years now and also that seems to it is in the BEST method for making Kanekalon dreads. Remember ns did the trial and also error experimentation for virtually a month before I was able to talk to a professional dread device in AZ. She works in a beauty salon making these points all the time and she offered me every these wonderful tips! and also they WORK!!!!!

*

I counted my wig and have about 34 dreads but that is due to the fact that I to be trying come recreate the AWE movie poster. Various other promo pictures I have actually seen have probably 30 dreads yet it varies once again!Everything used in assembly:

The kuchi dangle is sewn to one of the dreads so the it doesn"t bounce anywhere the place and hit JD in the face!Putting the dreads into the wig:

*
*
*
The number of dreads varies from picture to picture. Promo shots the JD display a lot much more dreads than the movie screengrabs. Probably due to the fact that they were taken before filming throughout costume fitting. Additionally the movie posters indigenous AWE shows countless dreads since they were most likely photoshopped into the wig. Mental the twin kuchi dangle error on the movie posters that JD coming the end of the mist???

*
The most important facet of urgent the bandanna is obtaining the "point" (as checked out in the picture above) plainly showing and above your right eye.
*
STEP ONELay her bandanna out flat on a surface. I suggest ironing it an initial to permit for cleaner edges and also folds. It will also make her bandanna watch nice and also proper when it"s all finished as well.
*
NOTICEThis is your "V" point - the is the last corner prior to the inside of the bandanna. I location my finger below on the backside to "mark my fold" and also then begin folding the edge back.
*
STEP TWOFold both corners in to the middle so the they somewhat touch. It"s not an exact science, however I shot to make it as also as possible. Another great idea is to iron flat after each of the urgent stages, this will continue to keep the quite consistency that the bandanna; nobody likes a wrinkled pirate.
*
STEP THREENow carry the bottom next up on much more time, yet this is not a complete "half fold" only go increase just enough to somewhat cover the tip.
*
STEP FOURNow fold the entire thing in fifty percent one an ext time. This is walk to it is in the completed dimension of your bandanna. Make certain on this last fold that it is one of two people perfectly even, or again, a small bit short so that once you see it native the front, the backside isn"t "peeking out" underneath.
*
NOTICEAgain, notification where the "V" suggest is and also when you place this on her forehead, make sure it is lining up v the center of your right eyebrow.
*
FRONTThis is my bandanna ironed level from the front, notice I have my "V" point clearly seen and nice and also crisp
*
BACKThis is the backside of the bandanna ~ it was ironed, an alert when i made my last fold, i didn"t touch the end completely, but left the backside to remain surprise when worn.

PIECE that EIGHTThe best method to now add the piece of Eight is come sew the in 2 (2) places. The very first is at the optimal of the fold above the topmost gold "ball" bead. And also the 2nd place is right listed below the red spotted "ball." This location keeps the top and bottom in place, yet still allows the coin to dangle freely. Put the piece of eight in the right ar is also key. Also though the "V" on the bandanna goes over your eye - the piece of eight go not. If you an alert in the images it in reality hangs a little an ext over (as viewed in the white arrows above). Do sure when you sew the down, to save the bandanna teach so that the charm lays flat. The worst point that can happen is as soon as it is worn, the charm "loops" far from the bandanna and gives friend a "tea cup handle" form on her head.
