THE DRUNKEST COSTUME OF DRUNK EDGE EDGE EDGE
- Styling Notes
- I started with a wig I had laying around from a few years back (a Melissa from New Look in 24) and two ponytail clips (medium length, also from New Look in 24).
I harvested the wefts from one of the clips (since I wasn't planning on using one anymore) and layed them on a flat surface. Once I felt they were nice a straight, I attacked them with Got2B freezing spray and Got2B hair glue. I coated them several times and made sure they were as straight as could be.
Once they were dry, I cut them into several sections - the appropriate width I felt the curls should be.
I made a wire frame, exactly like the curls, with a circular base that could be sewn into the wig. I started hot gluing the wefts to the frame, starting at the base, and continuing to the point. I glued wefts onto both sides in order to hide the wire - pretty much sandwiching it.
Once the hot glue was dry, I assaulted the curls with freezing spray again. Once THAT was dry, I trimmed the tip of each curl, as well as any stray hairs that were floating on the side. Those strayed didn't worry me since once they spray was dry, it wouldn't cause more hairs to fray. Once they were perfectly clean, I sewed each curl base to the wig.
