Styling ponytails on wigs

Ok, so I'm terrified of cutting my wig in fear of completely botching it. I bought a hair razor, and I've done my research, but that definitely doesn't make me a wig stylist.

This is my wig. I braided up the sides (with much difficulty because the hair is so long and kept getting tangled), but essentially, I want to form a sort of mane down the center of the head and I'm intending to mohawk the front bangs. If you really must know who this is for, it's the beginnings of my gijinka Red XIII female version.

I want to do this with ponytails off the back of the wig... but it means cutting the wig because it so long and I need to get that fringe to get the look I desire. Can someone please give me some tips or ideas or links to somewhere for info on how to cut it to get this look??? Any help is greatly appreciated!

the only problem i forsee with this is that you are going to have part of the netting of the wig show when u start pulling it back, or are you going to leave some on the sides?

For something like that you need to sew/glue down the hair to a bald cap.

I've already got the braids the way I want them and the netting isn't showing, and I have pulled the rest of the hair into ponytails down the back, its just the issue of cutting it to get that feathered mane kind of look. Any advice how to cut the ponytails???
