Unhappy Parting for Ponytails Tutorial question....

I was basing my project on katie's tutorial found here :
http://www.pettingzoowigs.com/wigtutorial_parting.html

In the tutorial she uses a wig that has vertical seams in the wig, I just parted my wig to start and my wig doesn't have them, they just have horizontal wefts...

here's a pic:

So can someone tell me, can I still pull the hair through like Katie does or do I have to build a vertical seam? I really hope I can just keep going and not have to worry about it. let me know please

If there is a piece of net or lace between the seams, you should still be able to sew the hair to it. (Some wigs don't have a net, just horizontal elastic wefts, but they have the vertical stripes to keep them in place instead).

You should still be able to pull sections of hair through the netting; you'll just need to be careful and do it in a straight line down the center back. Perhaps baste a ribbon down the center or something?
