Larxene Wig tutorial

A lot of the information for this tutorial was taken from *PatentRenoSmirk but with a few changes. I started out with this wig [link] in color 613.

Step 1: The hair already comes slicked back but not quite as much as Larxene’s hair so I had to do a little more. Doing it on the wig head is alright but be sure to put it on and do a little styling as well. It looks a lot different on me than it does on the wig head. At this point I pulled a little bit of hair (about and inch) out for the side burns. I put a little hair spray in them and then cut it to the size I needed. To get them at a point you can use push pins to hold the hair and spray it with hair spray. Let it dry then remove the pins.

Step 2: To do the antae things I found some hair extensions from Hottopic and they are the perfect amount and length (at least for my taste. I attached the extensions with a hot glue gun to the wig cap itself.

Step 3: Well gravity was making it a little hard to keep the antae up so I put a little bit of glue on the wig itself then suck the extensions to it. I used my Albel collar to hold them extensions up and in place while I coated it in hairspray and let it dry.

Hi, I am using your tutorial for my wig and I was wondering what color extension you got from Hot Topic.

There were some blond ones that had chains attached to them. Those are the ones I got.
