Our easy to follow illustrations, "Templates for Hairpieces", will help you know how to make a hairpiece template. The first step is to stretch Saran plastic wrap over the head. Twisting at the sides and having the client hold it down firmly. Second, run clear see through packing tape strips from front to back and from side to side, overlapping to form a contour of the head. Four layers of tape are usually enough. Next using a permanent marker, draw the exact outline of where the hairpiece needs to go, this will be the size you want, including front recession lines, part placement (if any), hair direction, exactly as you want them on the finished hairpiece. Now remove the hairpiece template from the client's head and cut off excess tape around edges to the black outside line.
Mans Template for Hairpieces: Using a permanent marker, draw pattern liners on the taped hairpiece template while it is still on your head. Though requirements vary from client to client, some rules of thumb apply to most. Front hair line should usually be established by placing 3 or 4 of your fingers (depending on clients age) at the top brow line. Lines are drawn from that point to form a pattern which covers the bald area. Deeper frontal recessions look most natural.
Woman's Templates for Hairpieces: Side measurement is done like men's above. However, front to back is different. Because women typically thin in front but don't recede like men do, it is wise to use the natural bang and add hair behind it. (some men may choose to do this technique also) Start your measurement about 1 inch behind the natural front hair line, going over the top to back as far as it needs to cover the thin area.
