Wig Spiking Tutorial by Cattypatra Wig Spiking Tutorial by Cattypatra
This tutorial used a Roxas wig for it's example. However, the same principles can be applied to any spiky wig that isn't HUGE. This is the method I also used for my old Sora wig!

:heart: :heart: :heart:

I hope this is helpful for some people. I've had a lot of people asking me to post a tutorial on spiking. So here it finally is! This is the easiest, most simple way to spike. When using a wig that doesn't have a lot of natural lift like a Scruffy or a Punky, there is a different procedure that I use to create spikes. It's much harder, but I might do a tutorial of this in the future. It uses many of the same principles once again, but it is more labour intensive and frustrating.

Anyway, until my next tutorial.

LOVE YA. :heart:

Thank you so much for this! I've been looking for a not-too-confusing (cause i'm dumb when it comes to following instructions) tutorial on hair spikes for my Yachiru Kusajishi cosplay (for the back of her hair, the little hair flips) and this was very clear.

This looks useful if I ever decide to try style a spiky wig. So into favourites it goes! :D (Big Grin)

I tried spiking a wig I don't use anymore. Did one spike with hair gel and was chuffed it worked XD

This type of wig... I dare not try lol. But I find wig styling to be so expensive now.

Thanks a lot! I'm considering styling a Roxas wig myself, and I feel this might be a great thing to help me!

I bought that exact wig before I found this tutorial, and I'm so happy! I have to style my wig quite similarly to yours, and all the other tutorials I found required trimming (which I did -not- want to do), so I feel confident now!

Awesome tutorial! I'm going to be styling my first wig, and this is definitely helpful. ^^ When it comes to storage, though, is there a certain way to put a styled wig away for a long-ish period of time that maintains the styling, or do you have to restyle it each time you wear it? Thanks!

WHAT... Do we do if Cosworx doesn't sell Shaggy wigs in Butterscotch blonde or anything resembling it, and whenever you try to contact them they never pick up the phone or reply to your emails?

Sorry about the totally random question, but did they never answer or were they jsut super-slow? D= I'm sorry for you either way ('cause it's rude and, yeah) but it also makes me ambivalent about whether to order from them or not...

Again, sorry and thanks (to everyone in the group who might be all "wut" when reading this. ;))and I get it if you don't feel like answering.
