Wig Tutorial: 1 high ponytail by kasaikun16 Wig Tutorial: 1 high ponytail by kasaikun16
Ok first of all, Iím not an expert on wig styling nor has anyone taught me about this. I actually just saw a reference picture of how the wig looks like when it was done (not during the process of styling) and I just tried it for myself.

We will work of Terra Brandfordís wig. Because I needed to learn how other cosplayers got their ponytails that high haha! Naturally, many professionals would tell you to wear a short wig first and clip-on a ponytail extension.

That, of course, would look a lot better right? But only if youíre in a hurry or want to make it look neat. Plus, thatís two wigs, it could cost you. I chose to do it the natural way, because I assure you, it is POSSIBLE. So letís start!

Yes it wold. Just do the same process, but gather or comb the first upper ponytail to the side rather than the back. :meow: hope that helped~

Hey, do you have any tips on hiding the back of your hairline? I have a blonde ponytail wig and REALLY dark hair and the hair at the name of neck shows... -_-

Hmm, that is still a prob for me honestly. Sometimes it depends on the quality of your wig. If it is thick enough, you'll be lucky to still hide it by constantly pulling down the back of the wig to cover it.. Or don't make your ponytail too high so it can cover enough areas.

otherwise, I could advice two things: 
1) you can opt to use color hairspray. Get the same color as ur wig, spray your nape part just enough to cover it with color before putting on the wig. Be sure to cover ur neck with cloth or paper so you don't get stains.
2) same technique as the color hairspray, but you can also use color eye shadow / colored pastel based chalks to cover your hair. It should be enough to hide the dark natural hair color at least.

all methods are washable and temporary. I hope that helps~!
