I was wondering how do you curl bangs on a wig. Thanks.

curl? Well, don't use an iron. Get some plastic curlers and hairspray them that way. Leave it for a while, take the curlers out, and they should stay. I think.

If it's a synthetic wig, a curling iron is an option, but here are some precautions: do not use it on anything by the lowest setting, touch it to the wig for a few seconds at a time, use a spray bottle on the area you are curling each time, and solidify the curl with hair clay or pomade. If you don't want to chance it, just try the curlers.

A curling iron is an option but the strange thing is that sometimes they don't get hot enough. On the lowest setting, my wigs take ages to curl so I hate using it that low. So instead, I use it near the 3rd number or maybe 4th.

Be careful though.

But hair curlers, sprayed with hairspray and then heated with a hair dryer should work just fine too.
