Many individuals aspire to become wigmakers, but do not know where to begin. Many of our viewers have read countless blogs, viewed numerous online videos and collected endless amounts of information, the questions remained, “What are the basic wig making items required to get started?”

Often “getting started” is the hard part. You will be inundated with massive amounts of information on the internet regarding what you “should” do, what you “shouldn’t do”, “best practices and techniques” and much more.

Our suggestion is that you absorb all the information given, but as a simple “guide” for wig making.

If you prefer hands-on instruction, a wig making course may be best for you.

The REAL knowledge will be learned once you take action! Begin practicing and making wigs to learn the process. Eventually, you find a technique and method that works.

Once you become comfortable with the process of wig making, you will think of creative ideas and techniques that will make your wig making journey even better!

Ventilating is a skill that can be used many ways. Do not limit yourself to creating wigs alone. Explore creating beards, moustaches, lace closures, lace frontal, toupees and other custom hairpieces, doll wigs, wigs for costumes and cosplay and much more!
