TUTORIAL: Adding Wefts to Wigs by Stealthos-Aurion TUTORIAL: Adding Wefts to Wigs by Stealthos-Aurion
So, how many of you have either bought wefts or made them, whether by sewing or using silicone caulk, then wondered what to do next?

Adding wefts to a wig is quite easy but no one seems to describe the process in their own wig tutorials. So, in my tutorial I have broken down the process for you.

It is more like a set of guidelines, there is plenty of room for your own twists. I prefer to sew my wefts in, but heck, if you wanted to you could hot glue them into place (if you do not ever plan to remove the wefts). This tutorial visually shows how to add wefts inbetween pre-existing wefts. There are many more things you can do with wefts such as adding them to the edges of the wig for up-dos etc. The possibilities are endless.

Anyway, I hope this tutorial is helpful to someone. Let me know if something is not clear. Feedback is great.

It would work for that hairstyle and be pretty easy to accomplish. Especially as she has a lot of short layers on top, then a low braided ponytail. It should be very easy to do. I would advise getting and adding wig clips to the front of the wig for added stability as the braid is low and rather thick. You do not want to to cause your wig to slide backward off your head.

Can you add wefts to a lace front wig like Arewn (?) from arda?

Depends on where you're adding them and what you want them to do but yea, you can add wefts to any wig for the most part.

I think such kind of hair wigs is baeatutiful. And I am also interested in the hair wigs and as I like to change my look sometimes with a new hair style, but having the hair cut is really a trouble, but each time I just buy cheap hair wigs online and told the seller the style I want and then soon I can find the one satify me. So I have never met the problem as you. Not long ago I get a BOB wigs for myself at www.hairwigsall.com/ and it bring me a new style as before.

I added wefts to my most recent cosplay wig to add volume and length. It looks pretty good (I added 6 layers and it had a clip in pony tail), but it still only blends in questionably. Should I add in more wefts (I can, but it's heavy as heck and the top needs to remain short) or give in and just cut it... or option 3?

If the wefts don't blend well, trim them carefully to blend with the rest of the wig. After you do that, see where you stand before adding more.
