Repurposing Your Extra Material

By Roberta Kozel, Salon IAOMO, Pittsburgh, PA

How do you customize a hair hat, turban and other head coverings with bang or accent hair?

Start with blended synthetic hair that has been permanently attached to a 100% cotton baseball cap, creating a ready-to-wear hair fashion. This process gives an illusion of a full head of hair by adding pieces to give it a bang or an all-around hair look.  

By strategically customizing stock pieces we save scrap pieces to repurpose for the hair accent strategy. Those scrap pieces are attached to the inside of the baseball cap, turban, or head covering and styled to a client’s preference. Each piece is stitched by hand to the head covering.
