I loved the look of this wig from Iplehouse...
Both photos below are from Iplehouse's website.
When I got it, it actually looks like this...
Hmm... yes, Iplehouse are correct - it does need to be styled by the owner!
So, after a bit of combing and pulling, it looked like this; not bad, but still not like the Iplehouse photos. It has a strong wave which needs to be straightened out at the back, and it needs trimming. I wish Iplehouse would show how it was done.
I suppose given the wig's original appearance, that some-one with a bit of hair-dressing knowledge could do the same sort of thing to many soft synthetic mohair wigs.
However, for some reason I decided to try it on Bane. I really wanted to give him a contemporary style and his curly wig really wasn't doing it for me.
A bit of brushing back from the forehead, and some careful snipping at the sides and back; and voila!
It could do with a little tidying at the back, but I'll leave for when I'm feeling a bit braver.
