How To Make A U-Part Wig

share on:

 U-part wigs, are wigs that allow you leave a reasonable portion of your hair out,which gives the wig a genuine and more natural look. U-part wigs are sold everywhere but to cut cost you can make them yourself.

You can either sew them or glue them. Below are outlines for sewing, and a youtube video that shows you how to glue.

You will need: A wig cap, either glue or a sewing needle & thread, scissors, a wig head, 2-4 bundles of hair(depending on how full you like your hair to be), sewing pins or thumbstacks.

1)Place the wig cap on the wig head and use the sewing pins or thumbtacks to keep the cap in place.  Pin the cap down on the edges on the left & right, and front & back.

2)Starting from the bottom of the wig cap start to sew your hair of choice on the cap using the weft only.  Try as best as you can to keep the hair from getting tangled in the stitches.  To reinforce your stitches wrap the thread around the needle twice before  you pull the needle all the way through the cap.  Sew the tracks in straight lines going from right to left on the cap.  As you reach the edge of the cap fold the track over and start sewing in the opposite direction.  Avoid cutting the tracks.

3) Once you reach the top start to lay the tracks in a U-shape, the opening should face the top front of the cap and should be       centered.  With each new row you start lay the track a bit forward so the “U-Part” will continue to decrease in size.  Continue to fold the tracks over at the edge and keep sewing until the space in the U is your desired size.  If you want to leave more hair out it will be large, if you want to leave a little hair out it will be small.

4)Once your u-part looks the way you want it cut any extra hair you don’t need off then make a knot around the end of the weft.  Then while leaving a little wiggle room around the stitches, cut off the remainder of the cap inside the “U”.

  1. Pretty please can you mention that this concept was originally invented by a Nigerian woman? Yes, me, Simi Belo! I launched it as ‘NewHair’ in 2004 and then re-branded as the SimiWeave in 2008. Cheap copies called ‘U part wigs’ have been flooding the market since 2010. Visit to find out more, and if you are interested in the original and the best. Thank you.
