You can make a full wig into a 3/4 wig using the method you describe on most wigs, but you may have to sew a piece of fabric round the new hairline to hold it together.
It would be an occasionally thing. I went for a cheap one to just have a go at. I didn't want to pay loads on a one that I will be experimenting on. The next I get (If I get the hang will be more expensive)
I have seen a few tutorials and many seem to stitch it straight to a hair band. See what its like once I get my hands on it

I thought it would be a pain (Thus the cheap wig) so I was going to experiment a bit. I am wanting a shorter wig and my plan was going to be to cut it and use the off cuts as tester pieces for sharpies and fabric dye attempts. Failing them I will sew the wefts in
I was told today, depending on how its made I could strip the wefts off and build up my own wig using coloured wefts, its own and some other in for good measure. Or buy a better wig and use them as coloured sections for it.
I initially wanted to use extensions but my hair is rediculously short. So this wig was going to be a go between during the shitty regrowth period for nights out. At work I tie a hairband around my head.
