This tutorial will walk you through the process of turning your Lace Front Wig into a Hair Topper

Are you concerned that your attempt to cut down a wig and turn it into a hair topper will go horribly wrong? You can see how I turned one of the most sought-after wigs in the world into an incredible hair topper by watching the video below. Using the steps below, you can transform an individual's lace front freetress water wave curly hair into an individual's Hair Extension. Using this super simple technique, you can cut a Belle Madame Angelina freetress water wave in half and use it as a hair topper in minutes, rather than hours.

It was a couple of years ago that I first considered wearing toppers and turned to YouTube videos in order to determine which companies had the best wigs and hairpieces to choose from. I was particularly interested in the wigs that everyone seemed to be raving about. Customers seemed to prefer the Carlotta SF and Angelina Mono SF by Belle Madame Wigs, two of the wigs that I discovered to be the most popular among those who tried them on. I knew I had to have them as soon as possible. The fact that they are manufactured by a company based in the United Kingdom is a flaw in their design. At random, Freetress water wave curly hair retailers in the United States are reporting that they are short on stock. In the meantime, I placed an order for both of them from a company in the United Kingdom called Continental Wigs because I couldn't wait for them to come back into stock. For the record, I originally stated that they were purchased in London, but this was incorrect; they were actually purchased in Lutterworth, which is north of London. Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience.)

My favorite of the two wigs I tried on was the Angelina Mono SF wig, which I purchased. The Mono is an abbreviation for a sheer monofilament top with a high neckline that is available in several colors. The abbreviation SF stands for super front super fine welded mono front edge, and it is used to refer to this product. It is virtually undetectable on the scalp due to the sheer top and delicate lace front of this stunning piece. Incredibly excited, I opened my mailbox to find the Angelina in it. I couldn't keep my excitement under control. I tried her on and fell head over heels in love with her the moment I saw her for the first time. Due to the fact that I still had a lot of my own hair on the front hairline, I found that the lace front hairline on this freetress water wave curly hair didn't look quite right on my forehead when I had all of my own hair there. At the end of the day, I came to the conclusion that I was simply not ready for a full water wave hair at this point in my career or personal life. As a result, it was returned to the container from which it came.

Moving forward nearly two years, we find ourselves in the present day. Hair extensions are something I'm currently experimenting with. When I get a spark of inspiration, I take the Angelina out of her box and consider shrinking her base to the size of a cake topper or something similar. That is something I have done many times before, but I have never had the courage to cut it down until now.)So I figured, what the heck, it'll be a while before I'm able to wear it again. I decided to go ahead and do it despite my better judgment! Oh, my goodness, what a stunningly beautiful woman she turned out to be! I think she's truly remarkable! It was such an incredible experience that I decided to document it in a video. You can see it by going to this link. When I finished filming this video, I knew I wanted to write a blog post that included up-close images and additional details to help you feel confident when cutting down your wig. In this detailed tutorial, you will learn how to cut a wig down to its bare essentials!

The process of converting a Lace Front Wig into a Hair Topper is straightforward.
I chose a lace front wig to transform into a topper because the base is nearly identical to the Belle Tress Top Wave, which is my all-time favorite topper and which I wanted to recreate as closely as possible. I knew it was going to be a close call before I slit the Angelina's throat with the scissors. Preserve the dimensions of your existing topper in order to obtain the proper dimensions for the new piece of furniture. If you are only wearing a water wave hair and have never worn a topper before, take measurements of the thin areas of your head on the top of your head. To complete the look, I placed my topper 1 inch behind my hairline and fluffed up my natural hair in front of it to complete the look. Make the necessary adjustments to account for the one-inch difference in height and width.

There may be some of you who prefer to wear your toppers all the way down to your hairline, and that is completely acceptable. Most toppers are only a few millimeters longer than the edge of the crown when viewed from the back of the head. The Belle Tress Top Wave is 6.5 x 6 inches in size and comes in a variety of colors. It was necessary for me to make the Angelina  a little larger than it needed to be before trying it on to see how it looked on. After that, I had to trim it down by a weft or two more to make it fit better on the top of my head. By taking your own measurements, you can determine the proper wig size. Sharp scissors should be used to cut the vertical bands just below the last/bottom weft for the length of the topper that you measured in the preceding step. You should avoid cutting through the wefts because doing so will cause them to unravel. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! In order to achieve the desired result on the sides where there is solid fabric, you must flip the piece over and part the hair where you intend to cut it on the other side. It is not recommended to cut through the fabric because this may result in cutting through the hair on the other side of the fabric.
