Yuuya Mochizuki from Another wig?

Hey guys! So I was hoping to cosplay Yuuya Mochizuki from Another, and I'm having quite the trouble finding a wig for him. Here are reference pictures of his front, profile, and back.

I did some color matching, and according to this color chart his hair color is a dark grayish vermillion. But I'm sure a light brown wig with a red tint would work? I was looking around for a short shag wig, but if it has the right color but not the cut, styling could be arranged. My head is around average size, so I guess most wigs would work.
Feel free to suggest wig lengths and websites if you can't find a specific wig! ^^

Here are a couple of suggestions, although I haven't looked at taobao for the colour yet.

Arda's Mahogany would be one... It's a bit dark.

Another option is Classe Pro Red 12:

I regard both of the above brands very highly, but I think those are the closest colours they offer. I can look on taobao after I finish my essay.

ah! I was looking on Arda for the right color, but I do think mahogany would be a bit dark. I was looking around myself, and I found this warm brown wig from Hellocosplay. I've never ordered from them before, do you know if they're trustworthy? And I was looking on http://lucaille.com/ (which I think is a taobao store?) and I couldn't find the right shade. Would the wig From Hellocosplay do Mochizuki's hair color justice?

I frankly do not trust Hellocosplay, seeing as how they steal a lot of those images.

I do trust Lucaille, however. If you can find the colour you are looking for, go for it.

Okay, so I've found the right shade wig! http://lucaille.com/?product-854.html

The problem is, it's not the right style! Seeing as Lucaille is a trusted website, do you think that the wig could be styled? Seeing as Mochizuki has a short shag cut, and this has a long curly style... Maybe I could straighten out the curls and cut the wig shorter?
I apologize in advance for being so unqueried. I often fret about things that I've never done before, like styling a long wig to a short one.

Lucaille's wigs are heat-resistant, so you should be able to straighten the wig no problem.
