Hello Hivers,
Lately I have gotten super creative, well, that is all on the fact that work hasn't started for me, being home all minutes, hours and days of the week. Quite a bore, but it made me try out a lot of skills, which is giving me a hard time to pick one.

All through the night I couldn't sleep so I watched some YouTube videos on Crocheted hair and took it upon myself to practice one. Let me take you through how I made mine.

Tools:

  • Wig cap (one with a frontal covering)

  • Crochet hook (small and big)

  • Ceres (it's a ready made hair)

  • A mannequin head. I improvised with this when I couldn't get one around so I used one of my friend's bags.

The ceres come in 6 pieces in the pack.
Started by weaving my hair, got someone to do it for me. I used color 33 of the expression ceres.

Separate the ceres from one bundle into tiny pieces and attach to the wig using a tiny mouth crochet hook.

Do this in all holes of the wig cap till you get to the frontal covering.

Use a concealer to blend the frontal closure. It's all ready to rock and roll.

Worked all through the night to finish it since I would be stepping out later in the day.

Thanks for stopping by, give it a trial and a feedback would be nice.

Its beautiful. Did you also use the crotchet pin to pass the hair through the frontal?

Yes, the tiny crochet hook makes it easy for it to go through
