Crochet Goddess Faux Locs Lace Wig
In this tutorial I will show you how to make your own faux loc lace wig using crochet goddess faux locs. This is an alternative to attaching your faux loc to your head, this can be done in an hour to an hour and a half depending on how quick you are at crocheting and how many packs of hair you add.
You will need:
- A Crochet Latch Hook
- Lace Part Wig Cap or Swiss Ventilating Lace Fabric (optional)
- Crochet Goddess Faux Locs by Jorie Hair or any locs of your choice
- Wig Head Mannequin with Clamps (optional)
- Normal Pins/ Mannequin Pins (optional)
Lace Part Using Swiss Lace Ventilating Wig Fabric
Firstly, we are focusing on the crochet faux loc lace part. You need a little bit of patience and steady hands. There are two ways to do this, if you do not have a lace part wig cap that is suitable to add crochet braids you will have to use some swiss ventilating wig lace. Secure this onto your wig head with pins, then pierce through the lace carefully by using just the tip of your latch hook.
When the lace is pierced add your crochet faux loc and pull it through the lace carefully to attach, as you would normally with your crochet braids. Add more faux locs to your wig until you are happy with the shape of your lace part. Then sew the lace on your crochet wig cap and cut off the excess lace.
Lace Part Using A Lace Part Wig
This method for me was personally easier as the outline of the black wig acted as a guideline for the creating of my lace part. The below image is what the finished part looks like.
If you have not dealt with lace before, I advise you to try the first method as you will have much more lace fabric to practice! I simply pierced the lace with the tip of my latch hook needle.
Once you have inserted your latch hook through the lace, attach the crochet goddess faux loc loop to the hook. Then pull it through the lace.
Put the end of the loc through the loop and then pull it through.
