INVISIBLE STITCH? How to Sew Down a Lace Frontal Wig to Protective Style


Hey curlfriends and welcome back! In today’s video, I’m going to show you guys
how I sew down my lace frontal wigs. I’m leaving for New York for about 24 hours
and I didn’t really want to worry about packing any kind of natural hair products for the
airport at all for this extremely short trip. I went ahead and decided to go with a straight
unit for this quick trip. I went ahead and braided down my hair into
this middle part braid pattern. I’m using some oil just to base down my scalp
& get it nice and prepped to be under this unit. I will be keeping this unit on so as soon
as I get home I’ll probably keep this same exact protective style in. I’m using a rubber hair elastic to go ahead
and put everything into a ponytail so that I can go ahead and start to prep my unit. This unit is that body wave 13×6 lace frontal
from Elva Hair Wigs. This is a 250 density unit. I still have it and I’m still rocking with
it. The lace on this unit is off as far as the
color so I used a little bit of setting powder just to match my skin tone a little better. It is hot so I won’t be wearing a cap under
this unit. I used the elastic band method for this unit
so I put that elastic band at the nape of my neck and I flipped my ponytail which is
the rest of my hair, upward and pulled the unit over the elastic band. Now I’m just going to go ahead and secure
the wig onto my head to make sure that everything is laying where they should be. I’m going to create that middle part because
I’ll be wearing my hair in a middle part for this hairstyle. Ideally for a style like this, I’d usually
start off on freshly washed hair that way I can actually set the hair in that middle
part but I was in so much of a rush. I’m literally doing this the night before
I have to leave. Beginning with my sides of my head, I’m going
to go and sew the lace down to my braids underneath and I’m pretty much just going to use this
invisible stitch method/slipped stitch method. I’m going to go back into that same hole that
I just created with the needle. Each and every time that I sew this; instead
of me sewing and moving onto the next section, I’m just taking the tip of the needle and
pushing it back through the hole that I create. As you guys can see there, I stuck the needle
through, came back out and stuck it back in the same hole that I just came out of. That’s what’s going to create that invisible
stitch look. You won’t be able to see the stitching at
all, no threads or anything. This is the method that I’m going to be using
for this entire unit. Once again, I’m going from one side to another. So I’m on my right side now, I’m sticking
the needle through and going right back into the same spot that I just came out of. Then I’m going to secure it at the end. I usually only like to secure the front of
my wigs because at night I love to flip my unit up to get some air flow back there to
let it ventilate at the back of my head instead of securing the entire thing down. Now I’m going to move onto the hairline since
most of the unit is pretty much secured down on the left and right. I want to make sure that the lace is not showing
in the front. I’m just going to use the exact same method. I’m just going through the cap, through my
braid, pulling out and going right back into the same spot that I just came out of; where
the thread is hanging. As far as placement of these stitches towards
my hairline, I’m making sure to leave a little bit of hair in front of my hairline and going
back a little behind it. I’m pretty much sewing down the hairline to
make this nice flat and seamless. Towards the end, I just go ahead and make
a small knot and cut it. I don’t cut it all the way down. I’m leaving back a little bit of thread back
that way I know where I need to cut to get this unit off of my head for an easy removal. As you guys can see, I”m pretty much done. The entire unit is sewn down. If you guys would like to see how I go ahead
and style this unit, keep on watching. I’m just going to lay down my edges with the
edge control and gel method that I love to use. You guys have seen it plenty of times before. I start off with my edge control first. Then I set everything with some gel. It lasts me so much longer that just having
a greasy edge control look. You guys know that I swear by this method
and I don’t plan on bringing any edge control or gels with me on this flight. So I decided to go ahead and set them now
so that they’re good for the 24 hours. As far as styling, like I stated before, this
is body wave hair but I wanted to get a nice straight look, something really simple. I’m just going to throw a flat iron in my
carry on. I’m not really sure if I’ll have a lot of
time to style my hair in the morning or throughout the day so this is going to be really quick
and easy for me. I’ll just do a few passes in the morning and
keep it moving. This is a really quick trip like I said. I’m just using the flat iron on about 360
I believe or 380. I’m just passing it through about 1 or 2 passes
to get it nice and bone straight that way I wouldn’t even have to worry about it the
next day. I may just have to do a few passes just to
make it nice and straight just the way I like it. We’re almost done. I’m going to do a few final touches. As you guys can see, I have a lot of fly aways. I wasn’t able to set my hair the way I usually
would on wet hair to allow it to dry in a middle part. So I just used a little bit of the Lotta Body
Styling Foaming Mousse to lay down that middle part. I used a boar bristle brush to lay everything
down so that it sets nice and flat. I’m going to widen out my part a little bit
by plucking a little bit of the baby hairs that came on this unit. The unit came with baby hair but they’re a
little bit long for my particular liking. I just went ahead and plucked them out of
the way. My hairstyle is pretty much complete. I really hope that you guys enjoyed it! I’m definitely going to enjoy this hairstyle
like I said because this is a really quick trip. It’s going to save me so much time and my
hair is so nice and protected underneath. It’s going to be nice and comfortable. I have no cap underneath like you guys saw. It’s going to be a low maintenance hairstyle. I love you guys and I’ll see you guys in the
next video!
