How to brush a curly wig/Styling hime lolita wig

I'm going to do a quick guide on how to brush a curly wig.
The size of the curls doesn't matter, this technique works on all of them. 
I will show you how to prevent the hair from fizzing and becoming tangled.


You will need:
  • hairbrush 
  • comb
  • hairspray
  • hair clips 
  • any other hair sprays

This is what the wig looked like before brushing. Quite tangled O.O




First let's start of with placing the wig on something stable, that will shape the wig into head-similar shape. It would be ideal to use a wig stand, but if you don't have one it's fine, just use something pointy, like the side of your hair or like me a guitar :3

NOTE: If you want to use de-tangler, go ahead, but DO NOT spray the whole wig, DO NOT literally drench it; it will only make the wig heavier in unnecessary product making it look dull and fake. Only use it on bigger tangles that might damage the wig or you have problems with brushing out. 

How to brush:

 Be careful while doing this, you can actually do more damage than good. Remember to brush from bottom and work you way to the top. Never the other way.Do this in small sections selecting each curl. DO NOT pull or tag the hair, only gently brush. Tagging and pulling is what make the frizz in the hair.



  
After you finish brushing section of hair hairspray it. You don't have to do it at this step, if you prefer do it after styling the curl.
 
While the hairspray is still wet (if you skipped that step don't worry it doesn't matter) twist the section of hair around your finger, follow the natural direction of the curl.
Then let go, and if you haven't use hairspray yet, now is the time. 

 Separate the section of hair as you go along, there is nothing more annoying then getting styled hair mixed up with what you are currently brushing.


 Pin up the higher section to get it out of the way, and to get to the lower part.

This is what the wig should look like completely brushed, since this is Hime lolita styled wig, I still have to finish the bump at the top of the head.

 First I separate it into 2 parts;

  
I start by liftting the hair, the wig was originally styled like this, so all you need to do is to refresh the look. 
If your wig is flat then i would advise you to tease it a bit then hairspray it, wait till it's dry and replace it.

It should end up similar to this. It also depends on how big you want your bump to be. If bigger tease a bit more, and use the combe to lift it up.



Next step it to move the rest of the hair onto the bump to cover up the wig cap (as you can see in the picture above) and teased hair.
