The Magnum is a great choice for spiking. This short style barely brushes the chin and has lots of thick chunky bottom layers that can be straightened or are flippy right out of the bag. This wig comes with a 1" (2.5 cm) skin top at the crown. The bangs sit right at the bridge of the nose below the eyes. We also have a slightly longer version of this wig - the Magnum Long!
