Question Supernatural Gabriel Wig Help?

A friend and I are planning to cosplay from the series Supernatural, but we're having some difficulties tracking down a good wig for Gabriel. We're not experts at wig styling, so the closer it is to the character the better. (Although we know some styling will be involved of course)

Also as a note, since Gabriel has his hair slicked back typically, is there a certain type of wig we should be looking for the achieve that look without it being obvious it's a wig? (There's probably a better way of phrasing that but it's not coming to me right now)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Arda is you best choice with a lace front wig to mimic hair growth.

I would with the Dark Brown (056) shade that come in the Morpheus style and trim it down.

I would have recommended the Cady but it only comes in Spanish brown so far. If you have a bit of time on this you could put in a request for the Dark Brown (056) in the Cady style here.
