Well uhh....try and fluff it up and spraying some hairspray in it to hold it? Heh heh heh....that would be my wild guess. I am assuming this is not a human hair wig (that idea scares me, always) so it may be a little harder to deal with because hair is made of protiens, and wigs are...well, plastic. Perhaps try extra strength hair hold spray in an aerosol can.

www.tartblossom.com has brushes for $2 that are specificially designed to tease wigs and give them that '80s style hair. That might be just what you need ^_^

Elmer's glue. Seriously. It won't go anywhere.. XD
It all depends on how "chunky" looking you want it. though...
My silky wig was done with elmer's, but I didn't touch the bangs.

Try a product called HAIR GLUE from citrus shine (man I put this crap in my hair for a fashion show... It was big as hell and hard as a rock! this stuff is killer. better than the gelatin/hair dryer mowhawk days of the 80s)

try back brushing the wig. What u do is brush the bangs towards the back of the wig or your head if you're wearing it and let the bangs fall downward. There's also cutting tips u can use to help fluff it out. The store i was just at sells special hair spray for wigs that keeps the style but doesnt damage the wig.
