Faye Valentine Wig Tutorial

Tuesday, 13 March 2018

I struggled when I first cosplayed Faye, and have since redone the wig 3 times. I decided to make a tutorial on it to help you guys out, seeing as you cannot buy a straight up Faye Valentine wig on the internet!

For your reference, here are my first two awful wig (and makeup) attempts:

Neither of which are true to character!

You will need:
2 x Raven (Teen Titans) wigs from Ebay. I used this one.
Purple fabric
Fabric glue
Hairdressing scissors

Cut out a devils peak hairline from your purple material and glue it to the underside of the wig to serve as a guide.

Cut out some wefts from your second wig. If you can find extensions of the same colour, you don't need to buy a second wig, but when buying online you never know if the colours will match. Hence why I bought 2 of the same wigs.

Snip off a section of wig hair and coat the end with fabric glue. You can use a little water to smooth it.

Start gluing down the hairline, piece by piece. Spread the glue up the hairline, making sure the pieces are firmly stuck to the main wig.

Leave to dry overnight.

The next day, make tiny cuts into the hairline as you see fit. 

Trim the rest of the hair into a concave bob.

Add your headband and tah dah!

I hope you found this tutorial helpful!
