Hi! Are you having problems with the fit? There are several tutorials available that discuss way’s to modify the size! C:
Here’s a good one!
Hi! If you don’t want to use foamcore, teasing and using heat to reshape the hair are really the only options you have left. I don’t know if you’ve seen our tutorial on teasing wigs, but you can check it out here!
You can also create fluffy, curled bangs by wrapping the hair in a round brush and blasting it with a blowdryer. Keep the brush pulled TIGHT as the hair cools off, and don’t take it from the brush until all of the warmth is gone. Because wigs are basically plastic, this will reset the fibers into a new shape! You may have to do it a few times, but once you’re done you can just very gently brush the hair from the underside and get a nice fluffy texture to work with! Hairspray should work easier on it then, too.
Hope that helps!

My inspiration for the hairstyle itself was JP from the anime Redline and the idea of rock-and-roll and destruction, and I decided to mix everything together to create a fire pompadour!
For the inner structure, I worked with carving upholstery foam— something that I do a lot when creating puppets. This allowed the core of the wig to remain fairly lightweight, and it was painted with gradients so that the foam wouldn’t show through those light-colored wefts.
The hairline was done in a similar fashion to my other wigs. I started with fabric, and added dark red wefts in rows until I reached the end of the fabric, and a final row of trimmed hair was glued to the edge with fabric glue.
I also wanted to show gradient dying! I took hair from Arda’s Malinda in Yellow and a Curly Clip (straightened) and used several different shades of sharpies to create a gradient from yellow to red. It was then all about applying the fibers as smoothly as possible in a fiery, flowing way! The sideburns and temple pieces are separately made and attached to the wig while the model was wearing them so that it would fit his face shape.
