I watch Youtube videos daily and after seeing a number of videos on 3/4 wigs, i decided to make a 3one for myself. I was looking for an alternative to regular sew-in weaves since sew-in weaves are too damn itchy. After a week I already want to take my weave out.
Making a 3/4 wig is time consuming and I have to give myself kudos for my 1st attempt. It did not turn out perfect but i was satisfied with the results. I messed up a little in the front but I found a way to patch it up and it still turned out pretty. My friends raved when they saw my hair, they thought I got the extensions sewn in and were surprised when i told them it was a 3/4 wig.I actually think I will stick to 3/4 wigs from now on.
I installed the Virgin Brazilian Hair from my previous post on a spandex cap.This hair is the bomb!! This is my 3rd install and I have never had better hair. Everyone thought I installed brand new extensions. It has minimalshedding and does not tangle at all. This is the best hair I have tried hands down!!!! If you want to try Virgin Brazilian Hair i would recommend you try this hair. I usually hate re-using extensions but that is because I have never purchased extensions that were good enough to be used over and over.
Drumroll please .... :P Here are pictures of my 1st ever 3/4 wig P.S: I love it!!!!
I installed my Virgin Brazilian Wavy Hair Extensions on a spandex cap using a foam head. To summarize what i did, instead of sewing the hair extensions onto my hair directly, I sew them onto a black spandex cap.
You can see where I made a mistake but I managed to patch it up and make it work :)
The 3/4 wig on my head before I cut out the U-Part
After I cut out the U-part, I installed the 3/4 wig by sewing it onto my hair braided underneath . Then I covered the tracks with my leave out. You can control the amount of hair you leave out by making the U-Part bigger or smaller.

(I did not curl my hair to blend it with the wig yet, just wanted to show the finished look)
Pls excuse the bags under my eyes, I do not get enough sleep :(
If I end up dying the hair, I will put up pictures so you can see my results.
I have been going back and forth on whether or not I should try the "Ombre Look". This is what Ombre Hair looks like:
I prefer dark hair for the cold months so the Ombre Look will have to wait till the weather gets warmer.
My first install of this hair was a sew in with an invisible part (none of my hair was left out), second install was a regular sew in weave and third install is this 3/4 wig. The 3/4 wig is my favorite. It is versatile and I can take it off as often as I want to take care of my real hair.
