    Posting this piece of info. from a thread...as requested by Sour_cheese

    HOW TO KNOW WHETHER YOUR WIG IS A basic WAVY WIG OR A basic STRAIGHT WIG (styling not regarded)

    General Idea:
    For cosplays, look for wigs style only by judging from the top half of the character's drawing.
    If its wavy from 50% upwards, then its a wavy wig.....
    If its straight from above 50% of the hair length, then its a straight wig in real life.

    the remainder of the style of the wig is then dependant on additional styling AFTER you have already gotten in your mind/knowledge which TYPE of wig its basic form is. This includes Curling the exact %tage to get the right look.

    Hope this helps~ Cheerios~
