Bangs: Not the same as the Chi Wig Dilema

Wig wearing newbie here...
I don't know if this has ever been posted before, but okay here goes.
I want to go a TanTan from Naruto. Her hair is two buns on each side of her head. My hair is long enough to do this, but she has bangs and I don't. My question is do wig supply stores just sell bangs (like they do those fake hair ponytails). If not and I got a wig how would I put two buns on the wig. I'll try to find a picture of the character that I am talking about.

I've only seen one store selling bangs, but luckily, I still have the link!
Drlocks.net sells bang sets here: http://www.drlocks.net/bangs.htm
Since I'm not too familiar with Naruto or your natural haircolor, I'm not sure if they have the correct color, but I'm sure something here will suffice.

If you need help putting odango/buns in your wig, there are plenty of explanations on the wig forums... all you have to do is search ^_~

Thank you so much! This will help me out a lot!
I didn't think they sold them at all!
Have you purchased from this site before? Is it reputable?
Thanks again!^_^

I've heard only good things about that site, so no worries there.

*raises hand* I have bought bangs from drlocks, as well as the bangs kit, and I'm really happy about them So I definitely recommend buying from them!

Before that, I tried looking at various places who i thought would sell bangs, but no dice.. You probably could find some at stores that specifically sell wigs, so you can take a look as well if you wanted before trying out drlocks.

how would you attatch the bangs to your own hair?

There are clips on the inside so you can secure it to your own hair. It's pretty secure. There is a strip that may be noticable at the top, but I just blended my own hair with it and it worked great. Also if you have characters that use headbands or whatever, the headbands cover that strip as well. Overall it's not too noticable as it is the same color as the rest of the hair.
