Crazy Ponytails? Pokemon Trainer: Crystal

I have no clue how to do this wig:

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Marina_(Johto)

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Kris_(game)

It looks like two low ponytails that point downward, and then point up and defy gravity.

I purchased an Ivy from Cosworx and the wefted extensions to use for a base (mainly because I liked the color). I planned to put the Ivy into two low ponytails in the back, but then I don't know how to make them stand up like hers do. I'm sure some kind of wire or foam structure is needed, but I don't know how to work it into the wig so it won't fall down.

Any ideas?

You'll probably need to add a back part first; I'd use loose extensions for the back part (a.k.a. Katie Bair method), but you could also follow a tutorial that uses wefted extensions (e.g., godsavethequeen method.)

I would've started with a shorter, thicker base wig, stubbed it, and made the pigtails out of foamcore and extensions entirely. With a long base wig, you'll need to add more fiber to cover up the bald spots, and styling it may require more patience.

In any case, I'd create the foamcore pieces (for the pigtails) first and cover them with extension fiber before attaching them to the wig. You'll probably want to wear a headband underneath the wig / build it into the wig and attach the foamcore to the headband, to make the pigtails stick out like that.

I wasn't really worried about a back part because she wears a hat that covers her entire head aside from the ponytails and bangs. I didn't think you'd see any mesh because of that. ^^

Thanks!
