This wig was such an experiment to me. It was my first time making buns like these. I think most people use foam for the base, but I wanted to try using a different material. I used pillow filler to shape into a ball, wrapped it with the food wrap, and then secured it with masking tape all over the form. I was able to get the shape I wanted without having to cut and sand down a foamcore which would have been messy and time-consuming.
The base wigs I used to make this wig actually had hair clips in them for the ponytails. But I took the clips out and use the wefts for the buns and the hair on the side. The side hair would not be full enough if I just attach them straight onto the wig. So, I used the similar method with how I made the buns, and then hot glue the hair on top of the base form.
Here is a progress pic that probably can explain much better than me XD : [link]
