HAIR (with brown)

Cut 22 strands of yarn of 21 cm each and 2 strands of 30 cm.
Split each strand before attaching it, so that it looks more like real hair.
Fold each strand in two and, using your hook, attach it to a front loop of hair base.
Attach the two longer strands to the two loops right in the center of the forehead.
Take the 12 strands at the front over the hair base and sew them at the back of head, where the base meets the hair.
Bring the two longer ones back over to the front and attach them to the base of hair where you want your fringe to be. (Use photo as guide or be adventurous and experiment with different hair styles.
