WIGS, the New Accessory !


SHABAM !
 NOW THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT !
EVER SINCE I SAW STYLE PANTRY ROCKING HER GIANT LOCKS, I KNEW THERE WAS A BOHEMIAN CHICKA WHO COULD ROCK BIG ASS HAIR AND I HAD TO HAVE ME SOME. I'M NOT SURE IF IT WAS THE VIBE OR THE FREEDOM THAT GRABBED ME, BUT I HAVE SINCE BEEN ON THE HUNT FOR A FUNKY STYLE THAT I FELT
FRIGGIN AWESOME IN.... I THINK I FOUND IT !!!


OF COURSE IT STARTED WITH THE "CHOP IT ALL OFF" SYNDROME, THEN THE "MAYBE I'LL GET A PERM" NONSENSE, TO THE FINAL AND TEMPORARY WIG SHOP. I WAS JUST GONNA BUY A PINK BOB FOR FUN, BUT WHEN I SAW THE CHOICES, STYLES AND THE NOT-SO-FAKEY HAIRDO'S, MY EYES OPENED TO A NEW ACCESSORY, AKA THE WEAVE.

NOW, DON'T LET THE WORD WEAVE SCARE YOU...
THIS IS A SIMPLE HAIR PIECE WITH METAL COMBS IN THE FRONT AND REAR THAT YOU BASICALLY CLIP ON. THAT'S IT !
THIS TYPE OF WIG IS MADE BY SEWING STRIPS OF HAIR TO BANDS SO YOU DON'T SWEAT TO DEATH AND CAN ADD PINS ANY PLACE !
THERE ARE SOME SIMPLE TRICKS I LEARNED AFTER PLAYING AROUND 
WITH HER ( HER NAME IS LA FASTA) REALLY...

I FIRST JUST USED A WIG CAP ( THE PANTY HOSE KIND) AND PINNED HER ON, BUT I STILL FELT SHE LOOKED TOO "WIGGY", SO I STARTED CURLING THE VERY TIPPY FRONT OF MY BANGS (SUPER TIGHT) AND THE SHORT, BABY HAIRS ON THE FRONT SIDES OF MY EARS  BEFORE I PUT HER ON. I SPRAYED THEM FOR HOLD, (DON'T SPRAY THE WIG!) I ALSO THREW AWAY THE "CAP' AND JUST PINNED MY HAIR TIGHTLY TO MY HEAD (PONY TAIL, THEN ROUND MY HEAD FOR FLATNESS).

SINCE MY HAIR IS SIMILAR TO THE COLOR OF THE WEAVE (WIG), YOU CAN'T EVEN TELL. THEN I PULLED SOME OF MY PRE-CURLED HAIRS OUT TO CREATE A TRUE HAIRLINE - (LESS WIGGY-LOOKING). I CLIPPED ON LA FASTA, GENTLY FINGER COMBED HER, AND WA-LA! (I ALSO ADDED BROWN BOBBY PINS ALL OVER, JUST TO MAKE SURE SHE STAYS IN PLACE.

I FRIGGIN LOVE THIS HAIR. IT SEEMS TO "FIT" MY STYLE, MY FACE AND EVEN BODY SHAPE. I AM OFFICIALLY HOOKED AND WITHOUT THE COMMITMENT OF A CUT, COLOR OR PERM. IT'S A GREAT WAY TO SEE HOW YOU WOULD LIKE A DIFFERENT STYLE. THE PRICE RANGE VARIES, AND I WENT KINDA LOW TO MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. (IT WAS A BIRTHDAY GIFT FROM MY HUBBY ;) YOU CAN GET REAL HAIR (LA FASTA ISN'T), BUT IT WILL COST YA!
THIS HAIR COST NO MORE THAN AN OUTFIT, 
BUT I WILL WEAR IT A LOT LONGER :)
I FEEL LIKE A WISE, HIPPY BOHEMIAN BAD-ASS BALLERINA PRINCESS ;)

Reva--Last night I was CONVINCED you'd had a perm. This looks very natural in the photos...sounds like there is a trick or two to making it look that way. It's a great look and you're right, it brings out your personality.

I had no clue it was a wig. I thought you got a perm! You look fabulous with this hair, and I love the idea of no commitment.
