Finally sat down and worked out a more traditional blocking for wool extensions/falls. I'm pretty proud with how this one came out and hope to make many more this way (+ variations.)



My friend Nidia has short hair (barely chin length in front and much shorter in back). I had intended on making smaller wool pieces to be placed randomly towards the top of her head, but I ran out of time and so just added regular hair to ease the transition if you will... but I kind of like how it's just a cascade of "dreads" coming from the back of her head.







These falls are made from wool and wefts of human hair, sewn together onto "tracks" and then sewn along a piece of elastic. Add some wig clips (I seriously love wig clips. Perfect for any length and thickness of hair, and super easy to take on and off), and voila!

and one more pic from the shoot we did just for fun:



I also made some falls that lay flat on a person's head, mimicking a hair part, those I'll post later when I get it absolutely perfect. I'd like to also eventually try lace front wig-work, we'll see how that goes.

Thanks for looking! Comments, suggestions, criticism please let me know!

Very cool that you made falls to work with short hair - I have always wanted some, but my hair has that same longish in front, short in back style and so a lot of the ones out there won't work with my hair. They look great! Smiley
