About a year ago, I was taught by one of my magnificent friends in Cosmetology school how to make extensions pretty much from scratch! All we did was go buy a bag of hair, sew for a couple of hours and boom, you had longer hair! I have changed my hair color quite a few times since then so I didn't have anymore extensions left that matched. Naturally I decided to pick up some more and get to work! Here is how you can add a little length to your mane.
First, get a package of hair that is not already cut or sewn together.
Here are the rest of tools you will need for this project: sewing needle, thread, scissors, and hair clips
Well, after I got started I realized the color extensions I bought were too coppery colored to match mine exactly. So, back to the drawing board! I had to put a red permanent color on to get them to match my hair exactly. (this is very important!)
After I rinsed them out, I measured each piece where I wanted it around my head. I have 4 pieces in all. I have a bottom piece that is near the nape, a piece that goes almost around my whole head, then two side pieces to fill in the side view. After much sewing, clipping and texturizing, here they are!
YAY! Now I can clip them in when I want them and take them out when I don't!!
