Hopefully going to do Ishimaru from dangan ronpa soon but have no clue how about to go about with his hair. Never stylized before so I'm nervous I could do something wrong.

I'm planning to get this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cosplay-party-wigs-New-Short-black-Fashion-Man-Wig-Gift-Cap-/400474298803?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Wigs_Extensions&hash=item5d3e20d9b3 but i'm not sure if I should buy a longer one to style it better.

I absolutely fell in love with how this person did the wig http://worldcosplay.net/photo/254239/

That wig will not work.
You need a wig that is meant for spiking. I can almost guarentee that this is not a skintop wig, meaning spiking it will show all the wefts. Plus you need that widows peak if you want it to look like that cosplayer's wig. Meaning, with that wig, you'd need extra to put in. I would say use this wig:
as it's meant to spike that way and you can cut off a lot of extra hair to make the widows peak. If you don't know how to do a widows peak, look up tutorials for "axel" from kingdom hearts. Most will explain how to do them.
