Make Your Own Wig: Two Tone Blonde and Black Wig Tutorial. #MakemeoverMonday

A new trend that I have been noticing is the two tone hair. Particularly where it is blonde or light brown on top and black or dark brown on the bottom.  Typically I ordered my wigs and hair online from Amazon or Aliexpress.  But the last wig I got was a hot mess and it cost me over $120.  The hair online often does not look like the picture that they display.  So I took a break from buying hair online for a while and went directly to my local beauty supply store to get hair from there and have been coming up with my own style.  That way I know, exactly what I am getting.  My inspiration for the wig, I was making this time, is this two tone wig. twotonehair

Instead of using dark brown at the bottom like the wig inspiration in the picture, I opted to use black or hair in the color 1. The top portion of the hair was an ombre hair in the color 1b/30.  I used the Q Milky Way Human brand.   I had never used this brand of hair before. At my beauty supply store they have the hair on display, so after running my hands through this hair a few times and seeing the price for it which cost me about $45 per pack (you can find it cheaper online) I decided to go with it.  I also typically buy closures online because I have never found a free part closure in the beauty supply store.  But I did get this Outré Velvet Lace Parting Piece in 10 inch in the Color DR30 to match the rest of the hair.  I wanted to make sure the closure matched the brownish blond, hair that I got, exactly.  Although this is not a full lace front closure, I do love it because it looks very real.  When I took it out of the box, the part looked very small and unrealistic, so I did end up pulling hair from the part to widen it and make it look like a real part that you would put in your head. Other than that I am happy with it, and it cost me around $24.00.

As always I can show you better than I can tell you, so click my video to see this two tone wig tutorial.
