General wig styling advice?
M'kay so i'm starting to leave it a bit late for my wig for baby peach. O.o

but i just have no idea how to do the wig.
should i buy a yellow blonde shoulder length wig and style it? or a shorter one?
i know her hair is slightly more yellow than blonde but no where has decent yellow wigs.
i'm a serious wih styling noob.....

how would i style it.... i've alreayd tried with with one of my wigs and it's not as easy as i seems..... maybe damp the hair down and use curlers to flick out the edges? let it dry n hair spray it? *sigh* i dunno this is such a confusing thing to have to do..... >w<

i need as much advice as i can get... please?

Try browsing this if you do want to try curling a wig a bit:

You need to have the hair held in position (usually with rollers), gently heated either with hot water or a hairdryer, and secured with hairspray. If you want to spare yourself some effort, just buy a curly wig - I think that’s the best route. Curling wigs isn’t a fun or easy task

A lot of your choices are down to personal preference - whether you want blonde or yellow, what length you want, and whether you want to try and style it just like the references, or simply go for a generic curly wig. That’s entirely up to you based on the wigs you find and what you feel up to doing with styling.

well i don't want it curly. but i have no idea how to do the little flicks she has.... i'll probably use big curlers to do the flicks and either buy one with a fringe or cut on to do the little triangley bit. >w<

if its just a little flick you are after, a round hairbrush and a hair dryer are all you need. Just remember to have the heat up as far as it will go and do it slowly and the wig needs more time and heat than normal hair, fixing it with cheap hairspray should work too (cheaper is better tbh as the expensive stuff tends to have more chemicals in it)
