View Full Version : Hair Extension... or something?

09-03-2005, 03:18 PM
hey there. I'm planning on cosplaying Vega from Street Fighter II. Hy hair is the same color I want for the costume, but it only comes a little past my shoulders. But the length is perfect for the bangs (I think anyway) Is there a way that I coudl get a hair extension instead of a wig? keep in mind that it would like start into a braid where my hair leaves off, I think this would make it easier. Could I just chop a wig and braid it in? any ideas are greatly appreciated.

You could get literal extensions put into your hair by a stylist, but that would probably cost just as much as getting a wig. You could also purchase a clip on or string fall, but you would have to put your hair into a low ponytail before the braid- you couldn't just go straight to the braid. So if you really want accuracy, I would just say buy a long blonde wig. ^^

Buy some hair glue and wefts from doctoredlocks.com and put them in yourself, thats what I do.. if you want some more detailed instructions or even pics of me doing just pm me :D

Hmm.... If u wouldn't mind Having long hair for a while, then i'd go with the hair extensions from your hairdresser! Otherwise u could just buy a buttload of extensions n hair glue them on yourself (or with a friend to help you) but that's gunna still be kinda costly, and messy to boot.

U might fall inlove with having longer hair u know ;) I'd go to the salon n get it done pro styles!
Least then ur garanteed its gunna look good! (n not hard n gunky!:P)
