I am going to be Jem for Halloween this year, and I wanted to make the best dang Jem costume I could manage (within reason and a budget.)
Here is the beginning of that venture: The Rockin' Jem Wig. Enjoy : )
Step 1: Materials
1 Pink wig
1 Pink, purple, or silver Mullet-Style wig
1 Wide tooth WOODEN comb (Plastic combs cause static)
1 Pair of scissors
1 Pack of small hair elastics
And some good ol' patience.
Step 2: Buy two wigs
Step 3: Divide and conquer; braiding the pink wig.
(Also, the smaller the sections, the easier it will be to weave them into the other wig, to distribute the highlights evenly.)
Once divided, braid each section. I worked from the crown down, gradually piling the braided pieces around a stick that I had stuck into the styrofoam head.
Once done, unpile all the braids.
