Looking for wig stylist/ colorist!

I need someone to make me a wig replicating Lilith's hair from Borderlands 2.
Now I don't want to sound like I'm being a picky bitch, but.... well.... I'm gonna be a picky bitch lol. I need someone who's had much experience with dying and styling wigs [with portfolio proof] to make me the "perfect wig".

Surprisingly, Lilith's hair is very complicated.

When I got my hair dyed to replicate hers, I remember the colorist using several shades of red to get the right colors... from a copper orange, flame red, copper red, and then the gradation to silver/platinum at her ends. Her cut is a bit odd, aswell, and have styled it differently in comparison to the first game [Randy actually told me that they did that because of the way I styled my hair!].

If anyone knows anybody who's great at this shit, or if you are someone with awesome skills, contact me whenever you can. I'm not in the biggest hurry for it, and I'm happy to discuss prices.
The wig will be used for a photoshoot later down the track and you will be credited for your work.

Thanks!

You know you can't dye a wig if the fibers are synthetic. So for the perfect wig is going to cost a lot. |:
You would need to get a real human hair wig that already has a similar color then get it styled, and get the tips dyed.
I think you'd have good luck with companies that make custom wigs too, i dont think it will be much cheaper

Actually, you can dye a synthetic fiber wig. She would need to buy a white wig and do a mixture of sharpie filters and rubbing alcohol, before spraying it onto the wig with a spray bottle. Works like a charm.

You underestimate the power of sharpie wig dye ;)

I did a Lilith wig once. I did a lot of mixing with various browns, fuchsias, purples, and reds, and it came out great if I do say so myself. It just takes patience because you need to layer it and add/mix colors after each layer dries.
