So…I’ve realized that there are certain looks I only like “on screen.” On celebrities, on vloggers, on a movie screen…but on me? I feel a lil bit silly, albeit glamorous The wig I just made is one of those looks. I am so extremely happy with how I constructed the unit and the texture but doggone it…where am I going with all this hair? The funny thing is, it’s exactly what I envisioned. My mother actually visited the site to see what it looked like because every time she asks me “What’s going on with your hair these days?” I respond “Well, ya know I have a post on it.” She died laughing when she saw it. She knows that I do love big hair – always have – but had to admit it looks like a bit much, even for me. So here is my dilemma, should I make some adjustments so I’m wearing only about 8-10 ounces of hair or leave it as is for “special” nights. Such as celebrating my 30th birthday in Miami? *decisions, decisions*
Every time I wear fake hair of any kind…some of ya’ll get so bent outta shape. And some of your reactions are so amusing! Even if you are anti-weave (which by the way is perfectly fine with me, there are tons of ladies who hate it and have never worn extensions), you should know by now that I’m not. I enjoy hair as my accessory and right now, I’m swamped and needed something easy that wouldn’t harm my hair due to neglect. I’m not weave dependent nor do I neglect my real hair while wearing them (in fact I even have videos on weave care & maintenance from start to finish) so what’s the deal with the anger? It always seems a bit strange when the hair of someone else causes extreme emotions in some people. Opinions – good and critical are welcomed, but the antagonistic, sometimes passive aggressive comments are just odd. I’ll be honest with you…until life eases up a bit, I’m gonna be in hiding but I’ll be sure to intersperse some “real hair” posts in between!
I have some new hair from another company that I plan to make another wig with. Its less expensive hair – still of a decent quality – in a kinky curly texture. I originally asked for 16-14-12″ bundles but they wanted to send me longer lengths, so I have 18-16-14 and a 14″ closure. THIS time though I’m going to do a shorter look with a bit less hair so I’ll probably only use the 14 & 16 inch bundles. Brandy is my inspiration, goodness knows I’ve crushed on this look enough. I’m excited about it….although it won’t be complete for a while because like I said, I’m busy these days and I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m just not able or into wig making enough to crank them out every week!
You know…I really love the flexibility of wigs. I mean I still like sew ins, but there are always those random occasions that pop up for which I want to wear my real hair but am “stuck” with a weave. With the wigs, it’s nothing to take it off and rock my natural tresses on a whim. I doubt they will ever completely replace sew ins for me but I must say, I’m digging it right now. Even just being able to take it off and sleep without a bunch of hair swirling about my head is nice.
Random hair thoughts…thanks for listening!
