Very sorry for the delay in this post!
Pete had been working on the everyday wig to my requests of a natural hairline, using real virgin, european hair the same colour as my original hair. Pete worked his socks off for this project! He spent 80 hours knotting hair onto the foundation. He even knotted single hairs around the hairline and the parting to create as natural a look as possible!
When i tried the wig on i could not believe how light it was in comparison to the trenco wigs i have been wearing for years! It felt like my real hair and i could hardly feel the cap on my head. The hair used was unprocessed and feels so much softer and real! The hairline was fabulous! You would have to look closely to see the foundation. Unfortunately there could have been more hair knotted into the front….. it is just marginally too thin. The hair that Hugo Royer gave as was very fine hair, what you could describe as “fly away” hair. My hair was not quite as thin as this when i had hair. I think Pete in hindsight would have knotted in more strands per knot had he realised how thin it was going to be…… however he was trying to get it as natural as possible and by doing so thought that knotting single hairs was the answer. Making this wig was a huge learning curve for Pete. For me also, it was a great insight into why a custom made wig is so expensive. The time and patience that goes into making a custom piece is unbelievable.
We used wig tape to stick it down but we are going to look into a skin adhesive which is semi permanent. Seeminly there are products on the market but we need to look into this a little closer. Since time was running out for the project we had to leave it there and i left back up the road to Bonnie Scotland!!
If i buy Pete a few drinks i think he is going to knot a few more hairs into the hairline for me……. Or perhaps he will teach me and i could carry on 🙂
Here are the pics below….
Relaxing in the Sun after hand in 🙂

Thank you Pete and Ann Marie! I made some great friends during my time down in London and thoroughly enjoyed it, aswell as bagging myself a hot new designer wig !!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 and i would just like to wish you both all the best for your future careers in what ever area you decide to specialise in.
