Dyeing Wigs

Hey everyone! Well I have been getting most of my wigs online but they can be a bit pricely. Lately I have been going to stores to buy cheaper wigs, but some characters require more than a single color hair. I don't know how to dye a wig and would love it if someone could give me advice on how to do it!

Thanks!

You're not going to get great results from costume store wigs that are cheaper than those online. They will likely fall apart after one or two uses. This fragility and poor construction would make them very hard to alter. Also, most of these halloween wigs cannot stand the temperatures used when dying. (At least not the way I do it.)
