Natural hairline, wig has been layered in the front and cut in the back. Product has been applied to the hair to make it look "stringy" and wet like in the last inspiration photo, then sprayed down to hold the look.

DetailsAbout Couture Styled Wigs:
When shopping for a wig you will notice a dramatic difference between a professionally styled wig and a costume or base wig you find on ebay or in a bag at a costume shop. Much in the way that fabric is the material used to make a costume, a wig base is the material used to make a couture styled wig. The hair quality is more realistic and is what is called salon quality wig bases. If you are wig shopping you will find "wig bases" on Ebay. The wig bases are uncut, unstyled hair. They come in various lengths and hair colors. If you find a wig at a costume shop, it is pre-styled as a character however generally speaking the hair quality is very low and often un-natural in it's appearance.
A couture wig stylist will purchase a wig base and cut and style it according to the character. Dramatic styles may require the use of hair extensions added to the base wig for volume, and if more body or curl needs to be added, a heat resistant wig will serve as the base wig. We craft our wigs without the use of hot glue or caked on hair spray to achieve the most natural look and using salon quality wig bases. Each wig is custom cut and styled to order. Much like walking into a hair salon and asking for a cut, color, or updo for a formal event there is a labor cost associated to style and cut your wig and make it look like a character. The amount of labor required will be a combination of 1) the required base wig cost 2) cost of any added hair pieces or extensions and 3) cost of labor to cut and style the wig. Wigs just like costumes take a certain amount of time to complete. Each character wig is priced according to the time and materials it takes to achieve the end look. Each character is different, some require minimal extensions, some require more styling time, some require very little styling time. Prices reflect accordingly.
