Every now and again we will come across a Kickstarter that make us wonder if this could really be a thing. This time we have one that is kind of like that and we really want you your input on it.
The product is called “Selfie Capz” and it was invented to help people learn how to lay wefted weave for sew ins quickly and easily while making wigs* or doing quick weaves.
According to the owners of the invention “a lot of people invest their time into watching “how to” videos and still lack knowledge of doing hair”. She truly thinks this cap will be a wonderful addition to the world of weaves, especially for beginners who might want an easy way to make their own wig* but still find it difficult knowing where to lay the wefts. According to the Kick starter page:
Each meshed weave cap is designed with one outline of a specific hairstyle. After putting on the cap, you would affix hair on top of it starting from the nape area and finishing at top of head. Works like a charm!
A patent-pending weave guide that literally outlines exactly where to lay your wefted hair?! No more watching countless tutorial videos, or going to an expensive hair stylist. This patterned cap will guide you through an entire hairstyle!!! Guess what? There’s nothing like this out there, this is the first DIY weave cap thus far!
Here is the video from their Kick Starter page:
And here’s another one from the inventor creating a unit for herself
For a beginner, I can see the value in a cap like that, because you really do not have to think about where the wefts should go, everything is all laid out. The issue however is: it’s kind of simplistic. Can’t anyone just make their own cap like that? Still the best ideas are usually the simple ones so I’m on the fence with this one.
We welcome your opinion comment below and let us know if you will be supporting this Kick Starter. Do you think it’s a great invention, and what would you do different?

Candy Worryfree Baylor says
If you don’t know where to lay the weft you may want to leave it to the professionals….. Ijs. Some of these quick weaves are too quick anyway….. Lol.
Chaquetta Denise says
I feel like this is something anyone could make on their own as a guide…. but if you dont want to take the time to make one may as well buy one
L. White says
Fantastic idea!!! I have teenage girls who like to wear sew in’s but cannot always afford the prices. The Selfie Capz idea will help them learn to do their own. I think its great!

Tashanda-shawn Boyd says
I think its great. I’m a supporter and also I’m wearing one now. Love it love it
I think if you can’t do it this will not help. There’s a reason why people who do hair do hair. Would you go and do your own medical or dental work. Would you go to someone’s home to get a gyno exam?? No?? You go to a what (cups ear) A PROFESSIONAL!! That’s right!! #fileinshenanigans
Kariel Sophia Marie Morrison says

Mdot Shellz says
Lol what u think? Latiyah Lovesfootballcowboysfan Walker
Skylar Jones says
I wouldn’t use it but it would be good when my daughter’s stat learning to do hair. As a stylist this is good fire teaching purposes
Nesha Rivers says
IMO it’s not a great invention because I lay tracks according to the client style,face shape and texture of the hair…but I guess it would work for beginners.
Tiavia Nelson Fields says
If you don’t go to a professional for medical or dental care you might die. If you don’t have a professional do your weave you might have ugly hair until you take it out. Bad weave won’t kill you.
Thee Iva says
My point is don’t go to someone who isn’t a professional. You have to to your research!
Eboni Anderson says
JessicaJohnson what ya think?
Juametta Crammer says
Thank you Tiavia! Lol
Tashanda-shawn Boyd says
Beg to differ doesn’t matter if you professional or not. This method is designed to help and teach those who can’t do hair learn instead of spending a lot of money. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I think its great and will succeed.
Antonette Richards says

Charlene Cha LaBranche says

Tamecia Young says
I think it is good for the person just learning
I love it, Great job..Keep it up…
This is a faboulous idea. There are soooooo many woman walking around here with weave in their hair. I must say some of them really need a comnect the dots kinda cap to help them out. Great idea!!!!
I am concerned about “gluing” the hair onto the wig cap itself, while it is on your head. Will the glue not adhere to the stocking wig cap, which in turn will adhere to my hair, which in turn will create a nightmare when it’s time to remove the cap and all of its componets? (which would be the “quick weave.”) Please help. The white, drawn-in guides are a wonderful idea, but the stocking cap being used on the hair AND with glue leaves me conerned we’re going to be ripping our hair out all over again. Or would you FIRST put the stocking wig cap on a mannequin (the styling dummy head) and THEN lay in track with glue/sew in hair?
You Know I’m Confused,
