Getting Wiggy With it

Got the club going UP on a Tuesday!  Not really, I’m sitting at home in my pjs watching Orange is the New Black. This post is the only thing going up for me Today.  Sometimes when I’m feeling sad or unpretty, I head to my local beauty supply store and try on wigs. 

I’ve been feeling particularly down lately, so I stopped by my local bbs and tried on different. Oddly enough, I found some kind of power, maybe evening safety, in being able to change my wigs when I don’t feel worthy. Everyone has some ritual to boosting their egos. This is mine. 

This lace front is super cute! I’d try it in a different color. The cut and curl is fun!  My inexperience with cutting lace deterred me from purchasing this one. 

Waves for days. This wig was daring for me. All of my life, I’ve heard that my forehead was too big, that it needed to be covered. Also, Color has made me fearful because of my color. I keep thinking that I’m too dark for certain colors. Rapunzel- esque lengths are scary as well but I this wig grew on me. 

The guy that was assisting me kept telling me that my face was fat and that my forehead was large. He suggested that I try on other wigs, preferably something with a bang. 
The cut is nice but the hair is bulky. 
Bob season is in full effect. I just can’t seem to find one that works well with my face. 

Color baby! I adore this chocolate brown color. I felt kind of like a doll in this wig. Another guy came over to assist me when I tried this. The previous guy likes this wig, the new guy said that it made me look older. My granny raised me. My maturity makes me seem older than I am. At 23, I don’t want to come across as 45!  

So which wig did I pick? 
Drumroll please! 

I got the wavy wig in a 1b/30. It’s nice for work. It’s out of my comfort zone. It’s bangless! I can move the part to either side and the middle of my head. 

Which wig did you like the best? 
What do you do as a pick me up when you’re feeling down? Can’t wait to hear from you!
