How to make a template

Photos 1 & 2: Tear off a large sized piece of 12” wide clear plastic wrap and tie it into a knot under your chin, or if someone is helping you hold the pieces down tightly just beyond your chin so that it is very tight on your scalp. Then use 2-3 layers of scotch type tape (one layer at a time, overlapping with each additional layer) to begin making a hard mold of your balding area. Use at least one layer from side to side and one layer from front to back.

Photo 3: Determine your hairline by raising your eyebrows and placing your fingers side by side above them. A natural hairline should be around 3-4 finger widths above your raised eyebrows. A little higher for those that are middle aged or used to have a naturally high hairline. Take a sharpie marker and outline from your hairline all the way around your scalp where you need your hairpiece to cover.

Photo 4: If you want a defined part ventilated into the hairpiece, draw a line where you want it to be. If you want a crown near the back, place an "x" where you would like your crown to be placed. You can also draw arrows of the way you want the hair ventilated. If you are not sure, it's best not to draw arrows and request "freestyle" ventilation. This gives you the ultimate ability to comb the hair in any direction you desire. Then be sure to clearly mark "F" for "front" at the front of the template so we know which end is the hairline. After finishing these steps, take clear packing tape and put one layer over your completed template. This will make it a hard shell, now just cut around the black lines and you have your completed template.
