Wig styling help needed
Would anyone be able to recommend any good products or advice for styling this wig:



Into this:


After possibly being cut [I bought it too long to be on the safe side |D;;], and having the lightning bolts stay in position throughout the day?

I'm going looking for styling supplies on Wednesday, so reccomendations would be helpful :3

Got2b freeze hairspray and glue are pretty much great for styling and keep the spikes or anything!
And I've never done anything like that before, but I suggest wire then wrapped around?

Haha, can't help you much on that.

It depends how straight you want the bolts to be really. ^^ You can just kind of spike out the front bits into a wave with some fuctis manga head or got2bglued but if you want a defined bolt you'll probably want to look at doing something like I did with the yugioh wig.

For that you'll need to cut off some sections (which you'll be doing anyway so keep what you trim off) and get either some pva glue or silicone (found in diy stores). Lay the fibres on a flat surface and cover one side in the product then leave to dry. When it's dry you should end up with a solid strip of wig fibres that you can cut into shape and glue together. I would use three separate lines for each side for each direction of the bolt. Glue them to the inside of the wig cap and they'll hold out on their own.

I do apologise for the late reply and thanks for the advice.

I have chosen to use SephNoir's method of cutting the wig and using PVA glue to fix the bolts in shape : ) I just hope it attaches back to the wig ok.
