As promised, here is the process I used to make the hairline for :iconex-shadow: 's Zack Fair wig :3

Though I've done lots of cheating with wefts/excess fibers and glue before, I'd like to thank :iconxhee-heex: for inspiring the idea to do this with hairlines. She made a quicky tutorial a long time ago, but she took it down before I was able to use it as reference. I don't remember if hers was the exact same process, but please check out her gallery and her amazing wigs! :3

Your wig tutorials are super easy to follow. Ironically, I was in the process of making a Zack wig for my little sister.

AAA Thank you so much!! I'm going to see if I can try this with my Eros!Yuuri wig, but I may need to find extensions...

how long are the pieces you're adding? Are they short or long? I am just worried about blending into the rest of the wig

This is a really great tutorial, thank you very much! I just have one single question: Do you use lace front tape when putting it on, or does it fit properly?

Can you style the hair after you've glued it on? I'd like to use this method on a curly wig. I'd have to curl the fibers AFTER they'd been glued on so that the new fibers can be a part of the old ones in a single curl. Thank you so much - this really is a great tutorial!!
