As much as I've yearned for the skill, I've never been talented at doing my own hair. It's wavy/ curly, and hard to manage. It's a pain in the butt, frankly, so that's why I've been intrigued by the idea of wigs recently.
It's a new concept for me, and I've always had a negative connotation associated with wig-wearing. Visions of outdated styles and skewed toupees danced in my head. But I've noticed a few girls around the blogosphere wear wigs... so I did some research, fell in love with a brand, and ordered one! You may have already seen its unofficial debut in my New Year's post.
I have to say... it's pretty badass. So far, I've only worn it to New Year's and for a few other small purposes (like this style shoot), but it looks really glam! It's like my hair, but kicked up a notch. Matt HATED it when I first put it on, but he came around ;) It's hard to blame him... even I was shocked to see such a drastic change in my look within minutes. However, when I wear it out, everyone thinks it's my my own hair. My friends practically died over at the New Year's party, and everyone declared they wanted wigs too!
It's still not completely comfortable for me to wear, though. After awhile it gets itchy, and I have to find a way to pin it properly. Plus it gets much more tangly than normal hair. I haven't figured out how to comb it out without snarls. Truthfully, it's more high-maintenance than I was expecting... maybe even more so than my own hair! But it looks so good that I'm dedicated to figuring out the mystery :)
Also, this color is a tad bit lighter than my hair. Next time, I want to get something closer to my own color. THEN maybe branch out to something fun, like dark red, or maybe even pink! As I unfortunately found out in Junior High, I look terrible as a blonde. So I probably won't go there unless I'm really bored...
