Have you ever dreamed of being Tai Kamiya, partnering with Agumon and bearing the Crest of Courage?
For cosplayers, it’s possible being anyone, let’s take the wig styling as the step one.
What to prepare:
- brown wig
- dummy head
- hair spray
You need to get a basic wig either from online or local store, a brown wig like this:
Put it on the dummy head and comb a little, what a man awoke from a hangover.Tai has spiky hair and wears a pair of glasses on his forehead, also remember there is a wisp of hair
falling down to the nose.
We will begin with the initial trim, get it started from the two sides.
Keep trimming and move to the back head part, but leave the hair at the over head alone.
For hairs near the back neck, cut them short enough.
Detail trim and get the whole wig into general shape.
Cut the hair at the back of the head accordingly. Thin the hair vertically as pictured, at the same time roughly part the hair in sections
and try out the length and shape.
Spray slightly at the top of the head, and uplift the hair naturally.Make the hair at side standing as well.
Spray again to keep the hair uplifted.
Here are the general shape:Styling! Part the hair at the top in sections.If need, comb a little since we used some spray before.Spray all over, and shape with hands.
The most typical feature of Tai hairstyle is the big spike at the top and the volume trending to the left. Uplift the side hairs to make the large volume.Differ the spike sizes at the top, if the spikes here are of similar size, the whole wig may not look natural.
Shape the other side.Make spikes with fingers.
Make spikes at the back of the head as well, trend them upward.Spray once more and keep the whole wig in shape, accordingly re-mark the typical spikes and volume.
And we are finishing it; let’s see how it turns out to be:
Quite identical to the character, right? And how does it look like on a cosplayer?
