The immediate benefits of having one of these might not be so obvious, but once I made one a while back, I haven’t considered styling a wig on a head that ISN’T of this type! It allows you to do everything but measuring bang length on a head the same as yours. Want to spike a wig and make sure your hairline won’t show? You can do that. Need to alter a wig to have a weird hairline and you don’t want to keep trying the wig on and off again? You can do that. Want to pull a wig in a ponytail but not make it too small? Yep, you can do that! Want to do a really crazy wig for someone who isn’t nearby? Get them to make one of these and mail it to you, and you can style it just as well as if they were wearing it! It’s a nearly indispensable tool in my wig-styling arsenal.
This tutorial is starring tumblr user notyourwaifu as my wonderful model! (She’s currently notyourwaiphantom for Halloween.) Similarly, if someone reblogged this during October and the URL for the jump doesn’t work, I’m only reospookywagon for October; switch the URL to “silencedrowns” and you should be fine.
That said, let’s go!
