Is it possible to crimp a wig without destroying it?

Asked by KatawaGrey (21433points) June 8th, 2011

Long story short, I want to dress up as Luna Lovegood for the premiere of the last Harry Potter movie. I have found a few long, platinum blonde wigs online but I want to have similar, wavy hair to Luna. Most of the wigs I’ve found have straight hair. Is it possible to crimp a wig without destroying it?

Here is a wavy blonde wig.

People seem to think it is possible using a low setting on a curling iron:

“But I’ve curled a synthetic wig with a curling iron too. I think it helps that I had some extra fiber to test it on. Experiment with the heat level of your curling iron would be my biggest suggestion. I would also spritz down each strand I curled with a mixture of wig conditioner and water before I curled it too, this seemed to help.”

Can you wet-comb it and braid it? That would avoid heat damage.

@marinelife: That’s a perfect wig! The only thing that worries me is that the company I planned on purchasing from is a cruelty-free company and I don’t know about other wigs. I might end up going with that one, anyway, though. :)
