Wig Styling with Boiling Water

wig styling

Styling wigs can be one of the trickiest parts of cosplay. I’d rather craft armor or paint than wrangle synthetic hair. After you find the right color and something approximating the length you want, some amount of styling has to be done. It’s rare that you can wear a wig right out of the bag. At the very least, it will need brushed and maybe trimmed. And what if you need to curl it? Forget using a curling iron or hot rollers — they’ll melt the hair. Family of 4 Cosplay tried an easy trick for getting great curls: boiling water.

The picture on the lower left is before curling. To get the curls in the image on the right, she put the wig in foam curlers and put the entire wig inside a cheap hair net. Then she poured boiling water on the wig and left it to hang and dry for a few days. After the hair was dry and the rollers were out, the curls just required a little fluffing.
