I will definitely be getting a wig from amazon. Completely forgot they sell everything anyways lol.
i dropped the wig off yesterday for her to bleach and stuff.
she will be doing it tomorrow night & she charging me $100 for a wig install.
Thank you so much! This may be my new way to rock my wigs.
the wig was longer than expected but it was 12 inches.
she cut it shorter for me and only plucked the middle part and added makeup to it
overall i like the wig, it has some fly aways and i used a product to keep them down, now the hair is kinda shiny i'm going to use a dry shampoo to wash it. i could probably work this look for 3 weeks.
just purchased this wig
Cute! Now that fall is on the horizon I'm waiting to break out Aku. She's my go to for late September/early October.
I love short wigs but they don't love me. I just have to accept the fact that they make me look like a middle aged Jamaican grandmother.
I'd like to join the challenge.
My hair is natural. Bsl when straight. Thinning. I think I'm going to buy a Hairlivi Kylie bob. This will be my first wig. I just want a M-F wig for work during the winter. I'll see how it goes.
Updating here too:
So I bought this u-wig back in Feb 2018 and never installed it. I think I'm going to rock this instead of wearing my actual hair out. This will be my first time doing a PS with leave out. If I like it, I'll be buying more half wigs! *fingers crossed*
Janet Collection Retro Glam U-type Wig
Off to YT I go to watch some vids... LOL
First day of fall! It's officially time for Aku!
This is Aku:
So I just did my first wig sew down with the u-type wig. It feels secure enough for my laid back SAHM life. Little one has not done any hair pulling so we're all good. I was really nervous because I didn't realize that I had bought his wig in 1B and I'm a 2 or 4. But I didn't leave much hair out so that I wouldn't have to worry about blending it more. It's close in length to my hair and I love the shape of it. It has great layers.
I forgot to post pix here so here. Remember, I'm a novice.

Note to self: No more u-wigs when I have this much new growth.
samsbeauty.com is having $1.99 shipping all weekend, no minimum purchase required. I just picked up these three:
that bang wig is perfect for fall
I know, right! I got it in red. I can't wait until it gets here! Samsbeauty packages usually get to me in two days but today is Friday.
You and your red! Didn't we talk about you rocking a red wig for Valentine's Day? Did you ever post a pic of your red wig? I'd love to see them, only if you're comfortable.
Lol I don't even remember what I wore for Valentine's Day. I think you're talking about Brielle, which I did post either in this thread or the 2018 one. I forget when I bought it. That one was more of a copper red, these are more burgundy.
Wigs are here! But I'm too tired from work to open the box today, lol.
i think i'll buy this wig for New Years (maybe in all black tho)
I love the color in the video, but you guys know I love red.

Okay so I just tried on Terri and I am not a fan. First of all, the hair tangles something awful. Second, the cap is both too loose and too small at the same time. I can't explain it. Third of all, the bangs are too straight. They have no bump or curvature to them at all. They were literally sitting against my forehead like this:
Don't get me wrong, it looks cute but I wear synthetic wigs so that I don't have to do this much work to fix them. If I wanted to do all of this, I would be wearing human hair. This is so annoying.
See? It's a cute wig, I just wish it weren't such a hassle.
Ohhhh no that was gone be my Thanksgiving with. Thank you for the heads up ughhh
I will say that my experience doesn't match up with most of the videos I watched, so it may just be my unit. A YouTuber that I trust said she loved hers but it was easier to style on a mannequin head then put on. I don't own a wig head, so...
Get you a styrofoam wig head. It’ll make your life a little easier.
