To prepare hair for application, secure one end of the braid, and utilize steam to loosen hair. Use a hackle, or thin sections to hand blend three or more colors together for the most realistic blend of color and texture.
When applying Crepe Wool, stipple our Spirit Gum on the skin and allow it to become tacky. With precision, and in sections, press the ends of the hair gently into the skin, applying light pressure until the wool is secured to the skin.
When creating full beards, work from the bottom of the neck, up the jawline and to the base of the cheekbones. After spirit gum dries, use a pick-comb to comb out any stray or unsecured hair. Shape gently with hairspray or a light pomade.
Remove with Spirit Gum Remover or Remove-It-All.
To add color effects in the hair, comb our Hair Colors through the crepe wool with a disposable mascara wand.
