U-Part Wig Step By Step Tutorial – (Part 3 of 6)

Breanna Rutter


Virgin Hair From:




In this step of the U Part Wig Tutorial, Breanna Rutter will teach you step by step how to sew in your hair extensions to create your u part wig.


After placing your markers onto your dome cap while it’s positioned on the canvas block head, you can then begin sewing your extensions. Make sure to always go through the edge of the cap whenever you are on the edge so that you can wear your u part into a ponytail if you want to!


While you are sewing in your extensions, Breanna will teach you to incorporate the infamous Fold Over Method to prevent you from cutting through the wefts of your extensions. The longest length of hair will be sewn in the very back and following that, you will sew in increasing lengths. Doing this allows for your hair to look layered if you have different lengths of extensions.

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.

Here we are in step number three of the u part wig tutorial using Mrs. Rutter's hair extensions from in this step I'm going to be teaching you how you need to sew your hair extensions once your dome cap to create your u part wig so here we are in our u part wig tutorial where I'm going to be teaching you how to sew your extensions but first I want to show you how you want to create your markers on your wig cap so that you know exactly where you want to stop so there's three red marks on the cap there’s two on both sides and there is also one at the top now when you're measuring the width of where you want your markers to be it has to be the width of your leave out so in a previous step I've stated the width you want your hair to be as well as how far back you want your braids to be so the width of my leave out is 3 inches and that's how far I have mine measured now the length back will consist of how long your actual braid is that's next to your leave out the length of my braid is 4 inches to match my wig clip so I measured back 4 inches with a measuring tape and I made a marker there to show what you want to stop now we are at the point where I'm going to be also teaching you how to sew your extensions but right before I do that I am going to show you really quick how you want to thread a needle threading a needle is simply connecting thread onto your needle so that you can sew your extensions onto your dome cap now if you have multiple needles this will help the process continue to go on instead of always rethreading one needle at a time as your sewing your extensions so for example I’m going to show you how you want to thread your needle so I have my needle here and this is a c needle also called a curved needle because of the shape so you want to do is grab one end of your thread and you want to put it through the eye of the needle when you do this you gather the two ends together and your create a knot now after you create your knot you are going to grab your scissors and you are going to snip off the thread right above the knot the reason why is because when you create your first knot you don't want a lot of thread hanging through because it will show through your extensions so that simply how you thread a needle so now that you understand that I'm going to go ahead and teach you how you want to sew your extensions now when you’re sewing extensions you have to do so in a U-shaped fashion meaning that the direction of your extensions as is being sewn on your wig cap is going in a U-shape when you’re sewing make sure that every time you reach the edges of your actually wig cap that you go through the edge here so that if you ever do decide to wear your u part into a ponytail or anything like that there is no cap showing or any weft showing whatsoever so now at this point I've left my needle and thread intact and I am going to teach you how to sew your extensions through this point here and we are going to go through the cap and I’m also going to teach you the fold-over method with the end of the extensions here so to create your knot you are going to go through your cap you are Going to go under your weft come back out from under your weft and you want to create a knot in this area so through the cap under the weft and when you pull through you are going to do a knot technique that I like to teach now this knot technique consists of you wrapping the needle around the string twice and pulling through to create a knot this is the same process you are going to do throughout all of your extensions so now you are just a little bit of space and you repeat process through your spandex cap right underneath the weft of your extension wrap the string around little twice and pull through to create your knot so you are going to continue to sew on until you reach the edge and you are also going to do that when you reach the edge as well when you reach the edge you make sure to put your needle directly through the edge of the cap so that way it's very flat right against the perimeter of it so we go right to the edge of the cap you are going to go underneath your weft and do the same thing do that once again going over just a little bit of space through the edge of the cap and create another knot and when you run out of string you simply can just cut off the thread and then continue with the rest of your threaded needles o just open up your thread to tighten the knot cut the string off and then continue sewing and then do your flip over which is what I'm going to teach you so now we are at the tail end of our bundle of hair of the 24 inches when you’re sewing your extensions make sure you start with the longest extensions in the back and then work your way up to the shortest length so at the back will be 24 inches and then 22 inches and then 20 so now we are at the point where I am going to teach you that infamous fold-over method and what the fold-over method simply means is you fold your weft back over so that you can begin sewing in the other direction so they can keep following your U-shaped fashion the reason why the fold-over method is so important when sewing on your extensions is because it prevents you from actually needing to cut your extensions so the entire time you will continue to do fold-over methods to sew in all of your extensions without cutting through the weft every time you cut through the weft of your extensions you increase the risk of shedding in that cut area so that's why the fold-over method is preventing so you fold-over and then what you are going to do was you are going to go through the cap and then when you go under the weft you are going to go under both of these weft to create that knot once you do that you are going to wrap the string around twice around the needle and pull through to create your knot now every fold I suggest that you secure your fold with 2 knots before you move on by stitching so now that your fold is secured you are going to begin stitching up to finish off the 24 inches and then you are just going to continue with your next the length of hair so as you can see this is a finished results of the u part wig with all of the bundles sewn in all three bundles are included of 24 inches 22 inches and 20 inches of Mrs. Rutter's hair extensions from as you can see with the very last track that was sewn on you want to make sure they each knot is as close as possible to one another because as you are wearing your wig this is the area that has the most friction from your comb and styling and things like that so to prevent the threads from wearing and tearing and beginning to unravel it's very helpful to make sure that the knots are extremely close to one another now that you have finished creating and sewing all of your extensions onto your dome cap now in the very next step, step number four I'm going to be teaching you how to sew on your wig clips
