If you have a monofilament top wig, and it does not lay flay and sticks up on the top of your head, forming a cone shape, it is clear that it is also too small.
Even though you don’t know how to sew, you just need to learn these quick tips. After all, it is really not complicated. The following is how to loosen elastic band on wig.
You can put the lace wig on comfortably and use an elastic band to measure how much extra room you will need. Then use a pair of scissors to cut off the elastic band according to your need.
Take off the lace front wig and flip the wig completely inside out. Focus your attention on the base of your wig where there should be elastic bands.
Once the elastic band is set, you can cut the ending hook piece off. Don’t forget to be sure to leave a little room and not cut too close to the hook since you need the piece to be usable. Once your cutting is done, it is time to create those extensions for a wider cap.
Make sure that your extra elastic band piece matches the thickness of the elastic band on the wig.
In the process of sewing, keep in mind that double and triple knot the thread so this band remains strong and usable. When you sew the first end on, just give it a little tug to be sure that is sewn on and it is secure.
Until each end is sewn on, it would be better to pull test go ahead and remove the clip or pin that was holding the band, and gently stretch the wig out so that the elastic band can move into the sleeve. Then you will clearly see how much extra room was added by adding that elastic band.
The next step is to repeat these same steps with the elastic on the other side. At last, the adjustable strap would be longer than the previous one, to some extent could make the wig looser.
Flip the wig cap to let the inside instruction completely expose, use a pair of scissors to cut along where your lace meets the cap that has the tracks. After you cut the area where you want to extend your wig, cut your dome cap into the shape that you need and sew it into the wig.
Take your weave thread and needle to sew the spandex cap into that area you have cut before. Start to sew in the hair bundles and use a weave needle to bring the thick weave thread down across the added wig cap and make double knots at the end of the thread.
When you reach the other side, fold over the hair weft to sew it down neatly and continue by stitching over to the other side of the bald spots securely until the bald spots are fully covered by the hair.
But if you do want to do some incisions, we suggest not doing them so close together but in different areas of the wig so that the holes won’t meet each other and expand completely.
