My first wig I ever styled!!!!
I bought a cheap wig at Costume Castle (about 3 inches past shoulder length) and snipped snipped to make the bangs and sidepieces.
I then took all the hair and pulled it into a bun on the side of my head, all bobby pinned and sprayed with Aquanet to keep it in place.
I then used a long hair extension piece purchased from LA Fashion District and actually pinned it into place with a million bobby pins over the bun I already created.
Using a long red ribbon, I draped it over the extension and actually faked a bun by wrapping it around the extension but making a bump to look like a real bun. I then just twisted it down the extension.
I actually used a little bit of super glue to keep the ribbon in place!
Whole process took my about an hour to figure out.
