When Oscar Wendt transferred to F.C. Copenhagen he was relatively longhaired, however, after a promise to chairman Flemming Østergaard on whether they would win SAS Ligaen, he and fellow Swede Fredrik Berglund shaved their hair. Ever since Oscar Wendt has kept his hair short.
In his first two years in F.C. Copenhagen he struggled to become a first team regular, first being a backup for former Norwegian international André Bergdølmo and later Danish international Niclas Jensen. However, in 2008, he managed to become a first choice on the left back position for his team, earning him a call-up to the Swedish national team, his first in over 18 months. His strong performances also had him linked with both English club West Ham United and Italian club Genoa.
With an injured Niclas Jensen in F.C. Copenhagen's 2006–07 UEFA Champions League campaign, Wendt played regularly as a left back, and in the team's 3–1 win against Celtic, he alongside fellow Copenhagen defender Michael Gravgaard was chosen for the Eurosport "Team of the Round".
