drill curl tutorial

anonymous asked:

Hi there! I'm trying to decide on a wig for Kokona Haruka from Yandere Simulator but she has those big drill curls. I have never styled a wig before- should I try to make the curls by hand with wefts or try and style a clip-on extension?

I would check out these Mami (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) wig tutorials. Similar way of approaching drill curls and should give you some great direction:

Rose Quartz drill curl tutorial!

HELLO I thought I’d share how I do the thing. First, some things you need before you start:

  • Glue (and a brush to that glue)
  • Bendy steel wire
  • Comb
  • Toilet roll
  • Hairspray
  • Tape

Alright, first you have your section of hair you want to curl. Try to keep it as flat as possible and about this size:

Then take the wireand measure out the length of that hair

Then cover that tape (apart for a top of it which you must have later) on BOTH SIDES so it’s like a horrible sandwich. The tape is maybe 7-8 cm wide btw:

Then fasten it under the weft!

Now you take the glue and start brushing it onto the tape. This is wood-glue and it’s white before it dries, then it turns transparent when dried.

Now begins the FUN part haha no I’m kidding nothing is fun with this wig it’s a repetative fresh hell - gently lay your weft over the glued tape and make sure to gover most of it (but focus on the steel wire in the middle!)

Now you can brush on the glue on top of it! You really wanna make sure it’s covered good!

If the tape is too long like above, that’s ok! Just cut it.

Now wait a bit for it to dry a little (DO NOT START WHEN THE GLUE IS WET things can turn ugly yes this is from experience)
After it’s dried a little (you can use a hairdyer if you’re impatient like me), start carefully wraping it around the toilet roll!

TADAA! And you’re done! Hairspray the little pieces standing out and fix the curl up a little and there you have it. Now repeat like 482957 times.
