If you are buying a long wig then I suggest pulling the hair up into a pony tail, making sure that none of the wig cap (the meshy bit) can be seen. You will then want to separate the pony tail into different sections with hair bands and take one section at a time and spray it from the base of the spike upwards with hairspray. A good one to use would be got2be products as they are cheap and last a long time.

After spraying from base to tip you might find it is not staying up, so it will need some support whilst drying. I find that clips are good for holding it up. Once you are happy with the spike use a spike glue (can be from got2be) or some sort of glue at the very end of the spike to keep the spike fibres together. If you do use regular glue, it is irreversible, so investing in some good spiking glue is recommended.

Just repeat this on all the other sections, and you have one awesome wig! I do suggest that you buy a foam wig stand/head to put you wig on whilst styling and storing as it makes it so much easier to do. Good luck ^^

It should work with any long wig - as long as it is thick enough. I think that wig should work fine ^^

I found the got2be products in boots, and failing that you can always try ebay, I know people sell it on there.

This might be too late but check out this
tutorial
It details how to make a pony tail wig. It slooks a lot of work, and I have never tried it but am thinking about it for an upcoming Kanda (DGM)
I have seen a lot of people say "Never just put up a long wig or it looks TERRIBLE!" but I think that this can be a bit of an over reaction; I have done this for my 1st attmpt at Kanda and I think it looked pretty good. As the previous poster said, just make sure you gently tease the strands down so the mesh does not show and the hairline at the back of your neck looks natural.

For Renji, I think you might also look at how you are doing to do his hairline, with the triangular cuts into it. Maybe cut away area of the wig and use a bald cap that you can spirit gum on, with the edge covered with the bandana?

I have never done anything like that so it might not work.
