When braiding down your braid pattern for your customized u part wig, leave out a thin amount of hair in the front of your hairline and enough hair for your leave out part. If you will be wearing your u part wig for an extended period of time, using braiding hair is critical to prevent your real hair from frizzing underneath your installed wig. Braiding hair protects the health of your hair by adding strength to weak and/or thin hair and it also prevents your real hair from matting or breaking off underneath your u part wig.

So here we are in step number two of the u part wig tutorial in this that I'm going to be walking you through the process on how you want to achieve your braid pattern and then I am going to show you 360 on how that looks so first off if you don't know how to braid your own hair I suggest that you visit to purchase the cornrow braiding DVD in that DVD you learn how to braid your hair with extensions and without extensions so as you can see no extensions is required to bring your hair down for your u part braid pattern base and as you part your hair make sure you part your hair at the very front of your hair which will be your edges so that when you are wearing your u part wig it blends very seamlessly with your real hair also you want to determine what you want your part to be for your leave out as you can see I will be wearing a middle part and if you want to wear a side part then choose whether you want it on the left side or the right side of your head now at this point you are going to braid two cornrow braids one on both sides where your leave out will be make sure that both of these braids are the same length as your wig clip this is important because after you finish your wig you are going to clip it onto your hair in place you want your braids to be the perfect length so that the wig lays as flat as possible if the clips are too short it may cause issues with trying to comb your hair over your wig and if your clips are too long it will hang over your hair line which is what you don't want now at this point once you've done that you also want to make sure that the width of your leave out is large enough for you to successfully cover your extensions now for me the width of mine is 3 inches if you have very thick hair way thicker than mine then you can leave out a smaller portion about an inch or two in width but if you have thinner hair you have to leave out more hair to make it blend easier which will be about 3 inches or more in width after that braid all of your hair straight back into cornrow braids and also connect each two cornrow braids into one I have about 10 cornrow braids on my hair so then at the very ends I have about five braids last at this point you grab the tail end of your braids and a bobby pin and you just clip them down to your hair with a bobby pin and that's it for your braid pattern and now I am going to show you how that looks so as you can see the pattern is very simple and easy so now you braid pattern is finished in the very next step, step number three I will be teaching you how to sew your hair extensions onto your dome cap to create your U part wig
