newbie to dying and styling wigs looking for help plzz

I am really just looking for basic help. I really wanna learn how to dye and style my own wigs, if anything just to learn the trait for future cosplays. I kinda wanna do my faye valentine wig first and then do Ed from .........

all I really is basic info how it work, aftercare, and maybe some website that I could find wigs specifically for the nature of being dyed.

any help will be greatly appreciated.

Arda Wigs and Epic Cosplay both have tutorials. As do a bunch of cosplayers on deviantArt as well as God Save the Queen Fashions.
There is also a wig dyeing FAQ thread in this forum.

Hope this sends you in the right direction!

I avoid dying wigs whenever possible. It costs more, takes more time, is messy, the wig colour can transfer to your clothing if it rubs even after it has been rinsed out well because it can't really be absorbed into the synthetic plastic of the wig hair, it can only coat the outside.

Dying wigs also changes the texture of the wigs making them more likely to tangle and prone to static. There are very very rare times when I would resort to dying a wig and it is always when I know the style will be cemented into place with hairspray or even glue to prevent it from moving.

It is a useful skill to know, and there are many tutorials online as others have mentioned, but i use it as a last resort.
