Hey there, DIYers, this DIY wig with bangs (fringe) and lace closure guide shows you how to add a fringe piece (or bangs if you're not into British terms) as well as a closure piece to your DIY weave wig.
If you'd like to see the whole process of making a wig with weave then check out the DIY Wig Guide to see how to review weft placement and how to make your own closure piece from hair weave if you don't have a lace closure piece, yay!
Mark the crown point about 6.5 - 8 cm (2.5 - 3 inches) from the front hairline - this will be where the lace closure or your DIY closure will be placed.
You can mark the crown on the wig cap using chalk or a pin.
The width of the section for your fringe (bangs) should be the width of the eyebrows (outer corner of each eye).
Measure this length using a tape measure then cut the first length of hair weave which will be used at the front of the hairline.
It's better to be a bit generous with your measurement because you can always cut it shorter if necessary.
The front of the wig should be facing you.
Start at the front of the hairline (forehead) and work towards the crown point.
Place about 4-5 tracks (rows) of hair weave closely together in a curved pattern like the photograph.
You can use more than 5 rows if you want a fuller look.
Next, take the lace closure piece and cut away the excess lace around the edges.
No Lace Closure?
You can create your own closure piece out of weft hair - follows steps 7-9 of this DIY Wig Guide.
Apply a thin layer of bonding glue on both the open area on the wig cap and on the base of the lace closure piece (or DIY closure piece).
Wait a few minutes to let the glue set, then apply the closure at the top.
You can style the fringe (bangs) to one side by combing the fringe (bangs) to one side.
You can also trim the bang piece to create a blunt fringe (bang) which is sometime called a Chinese bang (Chinese fringe).
You can check out the guide on how to cut fringe bangs if you're not sure how to do it.
