Ok first of all, I’m 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 Brandford’s 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 you’re in a hurry or want to make it look neat. Plus, that’s two wigs, it could cost you. I chose to do it the natural way, because I assure you, it is POSSIBLE. So let’s start!

It's been a while, but it worked out! It took some manouvering and extra hands, but it worked out. It was a long wig though, so the ponytail pulled the wig down my head. So I really needed to pin it down with a lot of pins. Othwise it would slip of my head. That was to be expected I guess. Maybe I should try I shorter wig. I did forget to make a picture.... oops. But wanted to let you know anyway! Thanks again.

would this work for a len kagamine wig?

Len has shorter hair right? Hmm, it shouldn't be a problem since it won't carry so much weight. You can actually just tie the high-ponytail with doing the criss-cross method (stop at step# 6) :meow: hope that helps~

What about side high ponytails?
nekomiKasai's avatar
well instead of tying the first half ponytail in the center, you can tie it sideways and just do the same procedure on that side :meow:
