Wigs Gone Wrong!

Okay, ya’ll are my witnesses.  Ya’ll know how good my wig looked when I first reviewed it, right?

My wig the first few weeks...

My wig the first few weeks…

It isn’t my imagination…it really did look good!  Well, um…when I went home, I washed the wig and as I sat it out to dry, I decided to try to tweeze a bit of the part and add a bit more concealer to make it look “better”.  HUGE MISTAKE!  Why couldn’t I just leave well enough alone.  Originally, I convinced myself that the little adjustments improved the appearance.  Until I looked at the photos we took that evening….


Me and one of my closest friends in the whole world, Christina!

Um yeah – that Moses part only works for the Red Sea.  Funny thing, it was the first time my date had seen the wig and he later commented “I don’t care for that [wig] much…its this (pointing to the part) right here that I don’t really like.”  I laughed, thanked him for his honesty and assured him, it doesn’t normally look that bad.  That was comical to me, I love an honest man!  LOL!

Anyway, I adjusted the wig for my interview and my father thought I had taken my hair down so I obviously fixed the problem.  Just letting you know, not all techniques work for everyone and we all have bad hair days, make a few mistakes and it helps to have HONEST people around who will check you on it!
