I really like French Braids. My hair is too short to braid my own hair, so I shall live out my aesthetic through my dolls. I used the color Cotton Candy Blue from my shop for this wig. Click to check it out!
I started by making a wig cap.
I marked off the part and the bangs. I wanted to make the bangs kinda thick so they lay flush with the hair.
I started filling in the bangs. I use a hair clip to keep them separate from the rest of the hair.
While waiting for the bangs to dry, I start gluing the hair in a similar way to a different repaint. It’s easier to style if the wefts follow the movement of the hair.
Once everything was glued, I looked up a Youtube tutorial to figure out how exactly to braid the hair (I’ve had short hair for a while). I’m very happy that I can just look up hair tutorials to figure out how to style hair. It’s very useful.
So I braided the hair according to the tutorial, and here are the finished results!
This side of the head is a little wonky since that’s where I started with the braid, but as I went on, I got a bit better at braiding!
I really like how this wig came out! I’ll have to work a little on how to glue the hair, and I’ll have to practice braiding, but for a first try it’s not too bad!
