Wig Tutorial: 1 high ponytail by nekomiKasai Wig Tutorial: 1 high ponytail by nekomiKasai
Ok first of all, Iím not an expert on wig styling nor has anyone taught me about this. I actually just saw a reference picture of how the wig looks like when it was done (not during the process of styling) and I just tried it for myself.

We will work of Terra Brandfordís wig. Because I needed to learn how other cosplayers got their ponytails that high haha! Naturally, many professionals would tell you to wear a short wig first and clip-on a ponytail extension.

That, of course, would look a lot better right? But only if youíre in a hurry or want to make it look neat. Plus, thatís two wigs, it could cost you. I chose to do it the natural way, because I assure you, it is POSSIBLE. So letís start!

well instead of tying the first half ponytail in the center, you can tie it sideways and just do the same procedure on that side :meow:

How much was your wig? And what seller did you get it from? I want to do this but I'm scared my wig won't be full enough to actually make a ponytail;-;

nekomiKasai Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
oh I got this wig from a seller in China years ago. I don't remember how much, but it wasn't as full as I thought it would be either.

That's why this tutorial will be really useful for the thin wigs because its purpose is to cover the wefts & wig frame inside from showing.

And as long as the wig you want to try this tutorial on is double the length of your desired length. Do you have your wig now?

Hi ! I wanted to know if you had a similar method to do Lucy's ponytail in Fairy Tail ? I really like how, when doing it your way, it shows that it's actually the hair on the wig that has been tied, instead of a ponytail that "comes out of nowhere" because it's just a hairclip ^^ Anyway, keep doing what you're doing, because it's awesome <3

:iconnekomikasai:
nekomiKasai Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
SANYUU! :meow: hmm, Lucy's ponytail is combed all the way from her upper left side to her upper right side yes? this is good, so when you tie the pony, it's just as thick.

now to make it poof up, i did a similar pony to my Misty (pokemon) wig. i tied the pony first with elastic band, but make sure to make it a bit loose because you'll want space  to open a small slit right above the elastic. Then you turn the pony UNDER and it should come out the hole like a plant sticking out. Tighten the pony by pulling the wig to poof it up~! 

here are more references:

Yes it wold. Just do the same process, but gather or comb the first upper ponytail to the side rather than the back. :meow: hope that helped~

Hey, do you have any tips on hiding the back of your hairline? I have a blonde ponytail wig and REALLY dark hair and the hair at the name of neck shows... -_-
Reply
:iconnekomikasai:
nekomiKasai Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm, that is still a prob for me honestly. Sometimes it depends on the quality of your wig. If it is thick enough, you'll be lucky to still hide it by constantly pulling down the back of the wig to cover it.. Or don't make your ponytail too high so it can cover enough areas.

otherwise, I could advice two things: 
1) you can opt to use color hairspray. Get the same color as ur wig, spray your nape part just enough to cover it with color before putting on the wig. Be sure to cover ur neck with cloth or paper so you don't get stains.
2) same technique as the color hairspray, but you can also use color eye shadow / colored pastel based chalks to cover your hair. It should be enough to hide the dark natural hair color at least.

all methods are washable and temporary. I hope that helps~!
