practicing before you cut and style

Okay... right now as i type this i'm brushing out an old Barbie doll's hair. I am planning on ordering a wig off line, but to save money, i'm going to cut it and style it myself... Hopfully doing a pretty good job of it. But, In order to make sure i know what i'm doing, I'm practicing on an old barbie doll. Do those of you who cut and style your own wigs do this? Do you find it a big help or do you sit there and think... "Never again. That sooo didn't help."?

I found that the best help that I could get came from dolls hair, 1 and 2 I found a wig that was a couple of dollars on sale. It was cheaply made (a "party wig") and it helped a lot. Some good places to find wigs like that are costume stores after Halloween, during clearance and at places like Savers during Halloween. Most places that sell resale clothing still sell new wigs during Halloween at very, very cheap prices.

Good luck!

I'm attempting a Sailor Moon style. (I was going to get a hair dresser to do it, but it would be over 60 dollars..... so i thought I'd just try it.) My only problem is finding a good wig. I can't have the net showing when it's parted, although, i did find some tutorials that might help... but i'm not sure. I'm just going to try my best, and if all else fails, there's always hair extansions. ^.^

I think I'll try buying a cheap wig and doing it on that first. There's always the reponzal (sp?) wigs.....

"reponzal"..?

OH! Rapunzel?

^-^ Either way, I'd totally love to see how you wig comes out, goo or bad. You can always get pointers from someone elses flaws as well as successes!

quick question.... I found hair extensions (yet, i know nothing about them) Would one piece be enough for the "tail" from Usagi's odango? http://www.hairpiece.com/product.asp?pf_id=APE501
