It's been a while since I've uploaded a wig tutorial here! Part of my job at Arda is making handy tutorials for our customers, but since they're videos I usually just keep them to our Youtube channel. If you don't already keep up with the Arda-Wigs youtube, check them out here: www.youtube.com/user/ArdaWigs
This tutorial is specifically for Arda-wigs, which have heat-resistant fibers (so they can survive being boiled). Do not attempt this on wigs that are not heat-resistant!
when it comes to dying wigs, even though they may be synthetic, you can use the same methods as normal hair color- Using the color wheel. (you can look this up, I'm a cosmetologist) the reason the orange turned brown is because it had a lot of warmth to it, the orange neutralized some of the tones in the black dye. where as the blue was very cool, more neutral, which black already has a very blue base, causing it to turn a nice deep black color. That is also why a lot of black hair color has so much blue in it-to tone the warmth from the red or gold bases. I hope this helps! ^_^
You know what, I was wondering something about your guys' wigs.....What I was wondering was:
How,.....how do you put them on?? I mean, they're all so perfectly styled and look great on the outside, so putting them on while retaining their shape must be a bit of a task. And I'd think you couldn't exactly stick bobby pins in it through the top or else it'd show on some of the wigs right?? lol So that got me thinking how do you guys put them on??? LOL
Say Malindachan, would it be difficult to dye an arda pure white wig clip? I know you can take the hair fibers off pretty easy from the clip, but I'm not sure if it would be the same for putting it back on after dying...?
Also, thank you!! This couldn't have come a better time I just got my pure white arda wig that I wanted to dye with fabric dye so this is perfect!
