Try a wig, variety is the spice of life.
By Patti Wood
This spring, the styles are getting shorter and shorter. They are cute and sassy! Some of you will rush to your salon with a picture and ask your stylist to cut it off just like the picture, others will want to try it but hesitate and think to yourselves, "All that time growing it out, what if I don't like it this short?" Maybe now is the time to try a wig.
Wigs are comfortable, fashionable and yes, making a comeback. Wigs aren't what your grandmother use to wear 50 years ago. They are stylish, well-made, and did I say comfortable?
Just remember, all wigs are not created equal
Some wigs are machine made, some are handmade, and some have lace fronts. All are fine, however, some brands are made better than others.
I was recently at a conference and wigs ruled the runway. There were so many different styles and colors to choose from. Beautiful root colors now make it such a natural look, even your husband will ask, "Did you do something different to you hair?"
Why not try one? I did!
I wasn't ready to cut off my hair, so I decided that this was a great, and inexpensive way for me to try something different. I picked a cute, short wig with a different color than my natural hair color. It wasn't a huge color change, just enough to give me a whole new look.
Variety is the spice of life, right?
If your stylist doesn't offer wigs, I would suggest finding a wig stylist. Like I said, all wigs are not created equal. A good wig stylist knows how to alter a wig for a good fit. If the wig needs a little cutting here or there they can do that too. A wig stylist can help you choose the right type, cut, and color just for you. Go ahead try one, what do you have to lose?
