I need a ponytail wig for a cosplay and I want it to be an actual ponytail that is pulled up, and not just one that has a short base wig with a ponytail clip. But the only place I've found one in the color I need is Arda, and while I'm mostly ok with spending more on their wig, I'm not super experienced with wig styling and I'm super scared that I'm going to mess up and those 40$ will be wasted. So, any tips on either finding another wig or conquering my fear of styling more expensive wigs?
Well, if you’d prefer a less expensive wig, many unstyled wigs can simply be pulled into ponytails! Here’s a tutorial:
I’m not sure what length ponytail you need, but @epiccosplaywigs carries shorter ponytail base wigs for around $30:
As for being less nervous about styling an Arda wig, the best advice I can give is:
- Use good quality hair products.
- Take your time and start small.
- Before you make any permanent changes to the wig, make sure that’s 100% what you want to do. (This sounds obvious, but I have made this mistake many times!)
- Watch/read lots and lots of styling tutorials! There are so many great tutorials on wig styling, I’d recommend checking out @cosplaytutorial list on wig styling here:
I hope this helps!
