To make a hair system template, you need to prepare a few things in advance, including scissors, plastic wrap, scotch tape, and markers.
Step 1: First, clean your scalp to ensure a smooth surface. Then, tear off a large piece of plastic wrap and place it over your head. Make sure you press down hard and evenly, and that the plastic wrap is air-tight without any gaps or bumps.
Next, use a marker to trace the bottom of the package. To find the front hairline, place four fingers flat on your forehead and your pinky finger just above your eyebrow. Where your index finger is is where your front hairline should start. Draw a line from this point to form your hairline. Make sure you draw a smooth outline around the head.
Next, apply the tape to the plastic wrap from the front, then spread the tape evenly across the scalp, piece by piece. Each piece of tape needs to overlap and completely cover the bald area. From front to back and left to right, apply three or four coats of tape to make sure the stencil is strong enough.
If you need parts and crowns, mark the pivot point of the original growth of the part. Then, draw a line from the pivot point at the back of the crown to the front hairline. Write down your name, an "F" on the front and a "B" on the back, and any special requirements for parts or crown.
One last step, let's get it done! Cut off excess wraps along the outline drawn. To make sure the template fits, put it back on your head.
