Are there disadvantages to buying a longer wig in the proper color and cutting it?
This is my first foray into the world of wigs, so I'm quite the novice.
You could do that, but most people make a mixture of rubbing alcohol and sharpies and either put it in a spray bottle and spray the wig, or put it in a bucket and dunk the wig. This thread
will explain it all a lot better than I can.
Since you've never dealt with wigs before, I wouldn't recommend cutting a longer wig. Unless you're a hairstylist. It you're a hairstylist, then why are you even talking to me? Go grab the scissors! But really, if you don't know your way around wigs or hair, cutting a wig is a really easy way to screw it up. With dye, you can test it on a place that won't show, or get a color ring and test the dye on that; if you cut something too short, your screwed.
