I finally finished knotting the topper that I have been working on, and I thought I would post a few pics. I'm very happy with this one!
This is a high definition piece — all single strand/single knot. Also, the entire piece is cross-knotted, which I think gives an amazingly natural, realistic look.
It is all synthetic except for the front inch or so, where I used Brazilian hair so that the knots could be bleached. I need to touch up the colour of the real hair so that it blends better into the darker, more ashy synthetic.
I have done a preliminary cut-in at this point, but the cut still needs some finessing. Overall, though, I think this one is a winner!
