PULLING UP THE LEG HAIR
will want to complete the following steps on each of your calf’s legs
to give them time to dry before clipping. If it is raining or really
humid, your glue will naturally take longer to dry.
get started, use a show comb to comb the leg hair up and make sure all
the hair is loose. Then, using the adhesive that best fits your skill
level and/or your calf’s hair type, spray short, even sprays of adhesive
on the leg, making sure to hold the can far enough away so that the
product just drifts on.
spraying and combing up the leg. The quicker you are with getting your
comb on the leg after spraying adhesive, the better it will look. From
the side view, the hair on the back half of the leg should angle back
and up at a 45° angle while the hair on the front half of the leg should
angle forward and up at about a 45° angle. Pull directly up on middle
of the side to eliminate a definite line. The hair will look like it
comes to somewhat of a point on the front of the leg.
OF THUMB: SPRAY A LITTLE, COMB A LOT to prevent your adhesive from
getting too heavy or gummy. You should always be able to comb the hair
without the comb getting stuck. However, combing too much can strip the
adhesives and make the hair fall. Likewise, spraying too much can make
the hair heavy. Another thing to remember is the stiffer the hair, the
more glue it’s going to take.
you get too much adhesive on the calf in a certain area, you will need
to stop, comb it out then put a shot of glue back in. If you see teeth
marks from the comb, we recommend using a slicker brush to clean up the
lines and make the hair look fuller.
- After applying adhesive, spray on ProPowder White
in short even strokes to dust it on, remembering to alternate spraying and combing. ProPowder adds fullness and dimension to the leg and serves as a great clipping aid (hair clips off sharp and crisp) and helps dry the adhesive.
sure to keep the ProPowder out of the transition area on each leg. This
area connects the fitted hair to the nice, soft body hair. Blending is
important, so your fitting will get lighter as you go up the leg.
up the hair and spraying it with adhesive and ProPowder will help you
make sure each and every hair is standing up to make clipping easier.
you figure out the right combination of spraying the product on, having
the right hold and being able to comb it so it looks fluffy and dry,
you are on your way to being a better fitter.
