hi man! I lay each section of hair down on a glass plate first and glue the cut end. after that dries I have hair peices I pull off of the glass. I trim the gluey end so I have a nice clean peice of hair with a strip of dried glue holding it.
I then apply the peices working with the way they naturaly want to curl or flow. Start with forehead peices falling towards the face and the side then working back in layers untill you get to the nape. the nape hair is shorter than the front too. Only the tips of the hair have a holding gel. the rest of the hair is soft to the touch.
