Cyber Goths are a subset of goth devotees that embody the despair and sorrow of a dystopian future. Think Blade Runner and you will be close to the kind of style and philosophy that the Cyber Goth wishes to portray. To that end, many Cyber Goths wear wigs that look both futuristic and dark, both actually and metaphorically. The wig is often black, with brighter highlights, such as purple or another neon colour, worked in. Headsets (like a small Bluetooth headset) are sometimes incorporated into the wig to further enhance its futuristic look and feel.

  1. 1

    Place the wig (either straight or curly hair, depending on your individual preference) on a mannequin head so that the hair falls naturally. Decide on the kind of hair style you want to go with. You can either go with a short, to-the-neck length or a longer, upper-back length, but the shorter style is more popular among Cyber Goths. Cut the hair to your desired length, making sure that the edges are straight.

  2. 2

    Clip the hair inserts into the wig webbing along the crown of the wig. You want the hair inserts to be symmetrically arranged throughout the hair. Alternatively, you could clip just one hair insert in near the front fringe. You want the hair to frame the face and the hair inserts to emphasise that framing effect.

  3. 3

    Attach a short antenna to the back of a Bluetooth headset, either with superglue or double-sided tape. Then slide the Bluetooth headset onto the wig slightly above where your ear is, and superglue or tape it into place with the hair falling over the headset. You don't want to go overboard with the technology accessories, you just want to subtly include them in your look.

  4. 4

    Put the wig on make sure you are happy with the way it looks. Take the wig off and put it back on the mannequin if you want to make any extra cuts or modifications.
