    Day 48

    It's confirmed, blondes do get more attention. But surprisingly it was as a redhead that I received the most flirts. Maybe redheads are more approachable? I love having the luxury of choice so much that I’ve decided to go past my 30 day commitment. Wigs feel so much like another accessory that I now plan outfits around different styles and colors. This must be how women in the 50's and 60's felt as wigs and hair was the ultimate accessory used to finish a look. Except, the hair quality is phenomenally better now!!!

     

    DAY 52

    I was at the airport today and as I walked through security I began thinking about setting off alarms. Would I have to take my wig off? I began playing through different ways I could deflect embarrassment. I got through okay, but that brief moment of apprehension stayed with me. It left me thinking about the anxiety a woman who’s not yet ready to reveal to the world that she wears a wig must feel in such a situation. It’s such a shame that there are women who wear or want to wear wigs that fear being stigmatized.

     

    DAY 65

    You know you're in love with something when you can't put it away! I decided to extend my wig wearing adventure until the end of the year. But as 2015 came to a close and 2016 began, I found myself still reaching for a wig in the morning. I never thought I would feel this way about wigs. They appeal to the side of me that’s gotten spoiled by having perfect hair every day. Seriously, I haven't been to the hairdresser in quite a while (saved some money there too). So it looks like I'll be wearing wigs for another 14 days until I can get my hair done.

     

    DAY 80+

    Going through this journey has helped me arrive at a new appreciation for my clients, especially the women that wear wigs daily as a necessity. What I love most about wigs is their extraordinary ability to transform your mood, and confidence level, in an instant! Whether you’re new to wigs or an experienced wig wearer, I hope this piece has been helpful. I would love to get your feedback. Please feel free to share your wig experience below and I look forward to sharing with you all again.

    The key to pulling off any great look is confidence. And whether you have a round, square, long, oval or heart-shaped face, there’s a beautiful hairstyle that’s perfect to help you set the mood this Valentine’s Day. Our Wig Experts selected 5 picks based on customer feedback from our top rated brands with style tips you can mix and match to create a romantic look you’ll feel confident about.

     

    Long hair tends to lengthen a round face shape. A few inches below the chin or longer with straight hair makes the sides of the face seem smaller. Gentle waves that begin below the lips can also reduce roundness. To achieve this look, we recommend Amber by Jon Renau.

     

    Consider adding little braids on the sides and pinning them back, or simply twisting the hair on the sides and pinning them back for that romantic flair.

     

    Long bobs elongate a square face. The angles on this face shape can be softened with waves, curls and side-swept bangs that graze the brows. You may also consider a middle part to achieve the same effect. Try this look with Jolie by Noriko.

      

    You can have your stylist trim it shorter in the back, being mindful to keep the hair longer in the front and keeping the pieces soft and layered.

     

    The goal for a long face is to create the illusion of width. Shoulder length hair (anywhere between chin and shoulders) with waves will give you a romantic look. We recommend Upstage by Raquel Welch to achieve this look.

    Consider asking your stylist for an a-line long bob, avoiding anything that adds layers to the top of your head. You can try bangs, any style from blunt, to long, or side swept will make the face appear shorter by covering the forehead. A side part is an idea that will make your face appear wider, minimizing the length. If you prefer longer hair, try it with waves or curls.

     

    For oval faces, any chin to shoulder length hair that is long in the back and shorter in the front, with layers near the cheekbones, lips, chin or any area you want to highlight is ideal. You can add beachy waves for a touch of romance. To achieve this look, we recommend Shannon by Rene of Paris.

     

     

    Pixie hairstyles are feminine and look particularly good on a heart-shaped face because they tend to emphasize the cheekbones and eyes. To achieve this look we recommend Risk by Ellen Wille.

     

    Sideswept bangs are another favorite which draw attention down and towards the eyes on a heart-shaped face. You may also want to try a graduated bob with a bit of a wave, or a chin-length bob that’s heavier at the bottom. If you want curly hair be sure to have them tapered at the ends. If you prefer long hair, try it with bangs, or soft curls to soften a pointy chin. Remember to keep top layers soft and long with this face shape.
