- The hair should be clean and dry.
- Before cutting hair, secure it in ponytails (or braids).
- As long as the hair all runs in the direction it grows, it will be good for wig-making.
- It is best to make ponytails in several sections around the head to maximize the length.
- Make sure they are tied tightly with hair-bands or rubber bands to keep it secure. At least 2 bands: 1/2-inch below the cut and another 2-inches lower.
Minimum length is 6-8 inches for a short wig.
