Ventilating vs Plucking...Which One Is Better? 1

Ventilating vs Plucking…Which One Is Better?

There are so many options available when it comes to making and customizing wigs, but two of the most popular are ventilating and plucking.

I have an entire video about this topic. You can watch it below.

What is plucking? Plucking is a method of removing hair from a lace wig with tweezers. The hair usually needs to be wet, and you tweeze the hairline or areas of the part that needs to be thinned out.

I don't know who came up with the brilliant idea of plucking, but if you think about it, it's brilliant. Plucking can be a great way to customize a wig in a pinch quickly.

The problem with plucking is that if you're inexperienced or rushing through a project, you can easily pluck huge holes in your lace. These huge holes can often happen to brand-new wigs, closures, and frontals.

Another thing that can also happen with plucking is that you can overpluck and remove too much hair from the piece you're working on.

If either of those two things happens, ventilating can be used to save the day! All areas that have holes or have been overplucked can be fixed with ventilating.

Now with ventilating (the art of knotting the hair onto the lace), you can avoid plucking altogether if you start ventilating from scratch. When you make a piece from scratch, you have total and complete control of how each strand of hair is ventilated and where the hair is placed to achieve the desired look.

Doing this will eliminate having to use tweezers to pluck hair out.

As I stated above, you can also use ventilating to add more hair to areas that have been thinned out from overplucking. You can offer these services to people. It's quick and simple, and it saves the client from having to throw a perfectly good wig in the trash.

Lastly, ventilating can be used along with whip stitching to repair any holes put in the lace as long as they aren't visible to the naked eye. Those types of repairs would need to be done on a case-by-case basis.

So, to answer the question of which one is better ventilating or plucking? The answer is that they both work! One is not more superior to the other; they can both be used to suit the needs of whatever situation you're in.

If you're struggling to learn how to ventilate, come to my next 2-Day Lace Wig Bootcamp here in Las Vegas, October 2-3, 2022. It's two full days of hands-on instruction in an intimate setting. There are only a few seats left, so be sure to submit your application below, so you don't miss out.

This will be the last hands-on training for the year, so I hope to see you here in Vegas!

Get The Weight Off 2

Get The Weight Off

Have you ever looked at a picture of yourself and thought, how in the world did I get this big? 

I've been working on getting the weight off since April, and although it's going slow because I have to put the fork down, I will not stop until I'm at my goal weight.

A few nights ago, I almost choked in my sleep, and I haven't been the same since.

You can watch me talk about that in the video below…

Countless things arise in business or life that hinder us from moving forward with something we know we need to do. I don't know what that is for you; only you and God know what that is. But, I want to encourage you to take that step forward to make the necessary changes.

In the video I shared above, there are three key things I shared that you should focus on when making changes, but I want to add to that here…

  1. Decide. It's up to you to decide that a change needs to be made.
  2. Commit. Commit to your decision, and don't let up. 
  3. Trust The Process. We may never understand it, but we must trust the process and know it will all work out in the end.

Have an amazing weekend! 

God bless,

Lace Wig Revolution, Missing Mom, & Hands-On Classes

One of the most memorable moments at Lace Wig University LIVE! was when I had a conversation with two of the attendees that had me missing my mamma.

Mom was my only assistant at my Lace Wig Seminars for years. I didn't even have to ask for teaching tools; she would just stand there with the next thing I needed in her hand; I'd look up, and there she was. I will never forget those moments with Mom.

Yesterday, I started doing my daily videos again, sharing things like this story with Mom and more!

Watch the full video above, and don't forget to like, comment, and subscribe to my YouTube channel, so you never miss an upload.

How To Fix A Receding Hairline

Receding hairlines don't just appear in men, but also in women as well. The hair can also start to recede in your 20s depending on a number of different factors. There are a number of different things you can do to fix the receding hair line like taking medication, using products to stimulate growth and hair pieces.

Below is a video I recorded on TikTok that is a quick fix for fixing a receding hairline for you or your clients. This is so simple and easy to do. Check out the video below for more details.

I've decided to teach this technique next month at Lace Wig University LIVE! Is going to be here in Las Vegas from July 25-27, 2022. We will be doing one day of hands-on, and two days of marketing. This event will change the trajectory of your career and life if you let it. Click here to register.

How To Make A Mold For A Full Lace Wig (Video 📽)

Happy Hump Day!!! I can't believe in 9 days, Lace Wig University will be closing for enrollment for 2022, but in this email, I wanted to share with you how to make a mold for a full lace wig.

I developed this approach to making molds for wigs years ago when I first started making Lace Wigs from scratch, and it has never failed me. 

All you need is saran wrap, scotch tape, and a permanent marker. In the video below, I had some of my students who graduated from one of my mentorship programs come over to do some interviews, and while they were here, we filmed this video demonstrating that technique.

You can watch the video below.

Since filming this, I've updated this technique and made it even better. It's taught inside Lace Wig University!

Enrollment closes on Friday, April 29, 2022 at 12:00am PST. Don't miss out!

Here's Who I Use For Bookkeeping 6

Here’s Who I Use For Bookkeeping

Last nights live was one for the books! (Watch it here.) Last night someone asked me a question about financials for business, and I mentioned who I use for bookkeeping, so I decided to write this email to you today.

It's that time of year again, tax time. And this is one of those emails that you'll look back on in a few years and say, “Marquetta changed my life with that one.”

I've been running businesses for going on 19 years now, and what I'm about to recommend to you can dramatically remove stress from your life when it comes to your finances. I know it did mine.

One of the biggest moves I made in my business is moving from a local bookkeeper for my bookkeeping to a company called Bench. Think of Bench as a “Cloud Bookkeeper” but with real people. Everything is faster and easier.

They do bookkeeping and tax filing, but I use them purely for bookkeeping. This is the fourth year I've used Bench, and like clockwork, my books get done flawlessly every month.

The only thing I do some months, which takes about 3 minutes, is log in to Bench to do some light categorization if the team at Bench doesn't know where an expense may go. But over time, they even master that.

Here are my three favorite things about Bench:

Favorite Thing #1:
I can send a message to my bookkeeping team 24/7!

Here's Who I Use For Bookkeeping 7

As you can see in the screenshot above, it's easy to communicate with your Bench team. And the best part is, I've asked my team some pretty complicated questions, and my main bookkeeper Steven will go to his team and get an answer if he doesn't know. This is invaluable!

Favorite Thing #2:
Every month like clockwork, I get my P&Ls, Balance Sheet, etc.!

Here's Who I Use For Bookkeeping 8

As you see in the screenshot, I click on the “Accounting” tab to the left, and then from there, I can download all the documents I'll ever need for the business at any time.

Favorite Thing #3:
The “End of Year” Package

At the end of each year, we get an “End of Year” package. This package is a miracle. It is a perfectly put-together package that I simply hand to my CPA, and he has everything he needs to do our taxes. Last year it took under two hours to do our business and personal taxes because of this package.

If you're ready to move on from your local bookkeeper, or if you're still doing your own bookkeeping, it's worth checking out Bench.

You can save 30% off your first three months with Bench by clicking here.

I'm an affiliate of Bench and promote them heavily because I believe in and use their service. I'll never promote anything I don't personally use.

Be blessed,
Maquetta Breslin

“We Produce Over 40 Closures A Day”

Back in 2017, I met an amazing young lady who flew to Las Vegas for my 3-Day Lace Wig Marketing Bootcamp!

"We Produce Over 40 Closures A Day" 10

She was very attentive, and I remember seeing how focused she was. Later on, she tagged me in her work, and I followed her journey through Instagram. 

"We Produce Over 40 Closures A Day" 11

In the middle of last month, I saw a post about how she set up a 40 person factory for her staff! I was completely blown away!

She purchased the Lace Wig Training System, consumed the entire course, attended the live event, and went home and implemented everything she learned!

Here's what she said about her journey…

She got so busy that she had too many orders to keep up, so she set up a factory. Not only did she do that, but she also trained her entire staff, who had no prior knowledge of ventilating at all, and neither did she before my training.

This is what happens when you implement everything you learn from what I teach you. With the upcoming Lace Wig University, you're not just learning how to make wigs; you're also learning how to market your services and have clients coming back for life!

Be sure you're tuned in to all of my emails and all social media channels. Lace Wig University is almost ready to launch, and you cannot afford to miss out on everything I've created for you!

With this training, you're getting an entire business handed to you to set up and run, just like my student Ewere did. This training can change your life if you let it. Don't miss out.

I Helped Her Make Over $50K With Custom Wigmaking 12

I Helped Her Make Over $50K With Custom Wigmaking

One of the best feelings you get as a teacher and mentor is the feeling of seeing the success of the people you've worked with. 

Seeing the growth in people who come to you at the beginning stages of their career unsure of what to expect, scared of failing, yet vulnerable and willing to let you do what you do best is amazing to me.

I almost always see things in them they don't see in themselves, and it's my job to bring that out, to show them themselves the way God sees them. When they finally step into their calling, and they are flourishing, that's when I know I've done my job. It's a fantastic thing to see.

A few days ago, Toria Demps (a former student and graduate of my business mentorship program) sent an email to her list, which I happen to be on. (One of the other things I stressed the importance of to my students) The email's subject was, “She helped me make over 50K with custom wig making❣️”. 

I couldn't help but think back to when I first met Toria in 2014. You see, she was unable to attend the previous events because she is a military spouse, and there was something that happened with her Husband having to get stationed somewhere, or maybe it was a move; either way, she wasn't able to make it.

I Helped Her Make Over $50K With Custom Wigmaking 13

I always tell students they make it to the event they are supposed to be at. The reason why that's a crucial part of her story because at the event she was finally able to attend in 2014, she joined my Mentorship Program, which was the catalyst to helping her understand how to make money with custom wigmaking. 

Had she attended any earlier, she wouldn't have been able to join because it wasn't something I offered at the previous events. This was God! Let me share a snippet of Toria's email…

Soooo, back in 2014 when I finally was able to attend a 2 day event in Charleston, South Carolina on lace wig making, near the end on the second day, I sat there wondering what was next…

And then it happened, an opportunity for mentorship was offered!

Sitting on a business degree but having no idea where to start, I jumped at the offer with no hesitation despite the cost. Long story short, I kept investing in different offers over time until I had to stop. (More on this later) All of that to say how things came back full circle over the course of my first few years in business. 

Marquetta Breslin (who taught the event in Charleston and became my mentor) helped me grow my baby business in ways I had never imagined. Through referrals, social media mentions, podcasts interviews and so much more, I made well over 50K. 

But God!!!

…if you are ready, you need to take her next class. If you feel like you are not ready, you DEFINITELY need to take her next upcoming class!  Click here to get in NOW while you still can! 

Since Toria trained with me, she has assisted me at my Lace Wig Events.

Toria has also taught inside the Lace Wig Training System.

And she is a fantastic wigmaker and Teacher.

The thing that separates Toria and some of my other successful students is the fact that they IMPLEMENT

Giving advice is one thing, but if the individual doesn't implement it, it's simple…nothing happens. 

You can't grow in business being stagnant. You have to be willing to do the work. Toria has always been willing to do the work, so she reaped the rewards. I'm so proud of her!

Toris is making a shift into the business world to do the work she's been assigned. If you haven't, be sure to follow her on all social media platforms. She provides unique content and is an all-around fantastic person.

Stay tuned; Toria and I will be getting together very soon to do a LIVE.

Let me leave you with this…

ALWAYS bet on and invest in yourself, come with open arms, IMPLEMENT and NEVER STOP LEARNING.

God bless,

She Ventilated An Entire Lace Frontal In 2 Days 😲 17

She Ventilated An Entire Lace Frontal In 2 Days 😲

Say it “ain't” so! In an interview with one of my students Marquetta Bullard shared with us that it only took her two days to ventilate an entire lace frontal!

The question I get asked a lot is, “Can I ventilate faster if I practice?”

The answer is yes, you actually can. A few years ago, I had a conversation with someone who shared with me that he personally knows a woman who can ventilate double the speed of everyone else he's seen.

I've seen several people who ventilate super fast, and in all honesty, the more you ventilate, the faster you're going to get.

In a recent interview, I interviewed one of my students' Marquetta Bullard, who shared that she ventilated an entire frontal in just two days! That's super fast.

Later in the interview, she shared that she's spent a lot of time ventilating since she had to shut her salon down for virtual learning. You can watch the full video below

Not only is she able to still generate income after having to close her salon, but she's also super-efficient by increasing her speed!

There are a ton of people who are starting to learn how to ventilate, do repairs, and make lace wigs, closures, frontals, and more for various reasons. If you've ever wanted to learn this skill, now is the time.

Registration is open for my 1-Day Virtual Lace Wig Bootcamp, and it's going to be a game-changer for you like it has already been for hundreds of new students!

My COVID-19 Survival Story

I pray you're having an incredible Monday. I'm going to keep this email short and sweet.

Last Monday, I celebrated my 41st birthday in ICU battling COVID-19.

Not only did it hit me, but we were all diagnosed, and our daughter Nya ended up having to have emergency surgery as a result.

I recorded a detailed video to share our story that you can check out here.

I'll talk to you very soon.

God bless,
