This would probably need to be 2-3 pieces. A shorter base wig, the front and top tuft, and possibly a separate braid. Or the top section and braid could be one piece that attaches to the base wig.

Some people dye their own hair, and clip in the top and braid, as seen here. She may have simply used a very long, red wig; folded the scalp part into the right shape, pinned/clipped it to her own hair, and braided it down. You could probably accomplish the method with a base wig, too.

I was thinking about doing the hair dye thing since my hair is already red and I don't want to get a super bright red wig I want to go for a more natural look. But what should I buy for wig/ponytail clip etc for her hair? Not too sure what to get ><

Any extra long, red wig. Epic Cosplay, Arda, and Five Wits, all have those. If you want something more natural, you can look for maroon or copper reds. Otherwise, look for apple or cherry red wigs.
Ebay also has some choices. Check the wig reviews on this site to find good stores. Good luck!
