I am so so very sorry if this question has been brought up a majillion times in the forums! I have resorted to asking now after so much research already done on the subject, so I definitely didn't come here blind and helpless, aha.
Givin' it to you short- Hello, my friend convinced me to do a Persona cosplay with her and others, but I need a wig because the hair required for the character is short. The problem? I have very long and very thick hair -probably the reason why I've avoided wigs till now.
When I say long and thick, I mean just that: hair length goes to my bum (almost thigh length? I can't tell sometimes), and just throwing my nationalities, I'm half Mexican and half Greek so it can be well imagined how thick my hair is.
I looked up tons of tutorials on youtube for thick long hair but, that's just it, I get one or the other, or somewhere in the middle! I would really like tips on wrapping up hair to fit in a short wig. I liked this vid 'cause it is the thickness I'm comparing to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyCh0boHPI0
but her hair length just isn't as a problem as mine. I tried last night to do the braid technique but with the length I had to wrap it around my head twice. It looked really poofy, I think I might need hair products to keep it down? Gah, or maybe I'm just bad at this? (probably)...It's stressing me out, maybe I should trim my hair, as much as the idea haunts me!
Anywho, any tips on this kind of thing would be great! I realize it's easy to bun a hair with pins and put a wig cap on but if there's anything else that could help I would love to know! Thank you to any help, and sorry if the question is overused, my researching skills aren't that great either, heheh! Hope everyone has a great day/night~!
