Know Your Wig Caps

“Munah, I’d really love to get a wig from you but I have this fear that it will fall off my head while I am on a bike or if the wind blows too hard.”

This is one excuse I get from a lot of prospective clients. I have tried over and over to convince them that custom-made wigs will never give you such a problem because they are crafted for your head.

Wigs have come to stay! They are one of the simplest, stress-free ways to switch up your hairstyle anytime, anyday. Whether it be synthetic or human hair, long or pixie, straight or curly, with or without closure/frontal, weaves, crotcheted or braided, there is a wig for every occasion and expression.

Every structure must have a foundation, so it is with wigs. The foundation of making the wig happens to be the kind of wig cap you use. Different styles call for different caps. However, a particular cap can be used to create diverse styles.

  2. Mesh cap (Suitable for crotchet) – Not commercially appropriate
  3. Stocking cap (Suitable for quick weave wigs) – Not commercially appropriate

Throwback Thursday

Hola,

How are y’all doing today?

Since,  its throwback Thursday, i just wanna share a memory with you.

See that wig above?  That was the 6th wig i made. The unusual thing about it is that i did it under 4hrs before attending a wedding the same day.

😮😱 Exactly the reaction i got cos it kinda turned out so well (if i do say so myself).

When i started out , i didn’t have a mannequin or any wig making tool.

The picture above is that of the first wig i ever made. I used a throw pillow as my mannequin but i was unbothered about it cause i had just found my forte.
From a throw pillow,  i moved to a styrofoam head (see below)

And then to a plastic mannequin

And i also got better with more practice.

If you’d like to see other pictures of the wigs i have made, check my instagram page @monarhairxpress.

Remember that “Creativity is inventing, experimenting, grwoing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun.”

Catch you on the next one.  Ciao!

Hola,

Yea! It’s Munah in the bweedin *dabs*.

Did i hear someone say Nice to have you back? Thanks a bunch!

How are y’all doing? It’s been what? Exactly 2 years since I started this blog. So, before I continue with why I have been AWOL, I want to welcome those who are visiting for the first time.

“If this is your first time of visiting Monar Hairxpress, please indicate by dropping a comment below”…Thanks!

So, what’s been happening with moi?

I finished Youth Service (which was the period my blogging was birthed) and then got a job (Halleluyah) and then got busy and then took a leave of absence from writing.

Enough of the ohs! and ahs! lemme get you up to speed.

So, your home girl makes custom wigs for sale (yea, flips hair) so, I will be putting up videos on my YouTube channel and Facebook page, so make sure you follow me by clicking the links I’ll be including at the end of this thesis.

And yea, I went from being a naturalie to a “permie”… I will explain later.

Are you back for a while or fully?

Watchu think? I’m back to stay for reals!

Catch you guys on the next post. Till then, remember that “The best way to predict your future, is to create it”. Xoxo
