Regency Hairpiece

My hair does not curl without a lot of work, work which I’m usually unwilling to do. The solution? Fake hair, obviously. I bought two hairpieces: the Boho Double Braid and the Vintage Locks by Forever Young. I cut some of the curls off of the Vintage Locks piece, and sewed them to the double braid, to give a curled bangs effect. Then I sewed a couple wig clips to the braid, so I can keep it from sliding back. The Vintage Locks clip still works, even though I took off some of its curls.
