    DAY 33

    It’s raining cats and dogs and as I pull into work my wig looks perfect. This is a big deal because I styled it all by myself and I am not the best at primping my own hair. It’s a short and dark, one length wig from Louis Ferre made of human hair. The quality is amazing! At first the lace wouldn't lay down properly on my forehead so I thought it may be defective. But it's almost like it just figured out my head shape because after I styled it (flat ironed the waves which took me too long!) the hair feels incredible and looks great!

     

    DAY 38

    I’ve noticed that no matter how secure I know my wig is I keep touching it to make sure it hasn’t ridden up. I’m not sure if this is a nervous habit I developed because it took a couple of weeks for me to get the 'putting on' process down. But once I start tugging my hair underneath begins moving. I made a conscious effort not to touch it and trust it is where it belongs. I found myself still doing mirror checks just to be sure.

     

    DAY 41

    Three days later and the not-tugging-on-my-wig-to-make-sure-it’s-in-place effort is working like a dream. What a difference! It turns out the problem was my own insecurity about my wig moving. Today was my first real experience with cold set, which is when a wig sits in a box a long time, or is exposed to extreme temperatures while in the box. It sets the hair in a weird shape, (usually on top or in front). I learned to spritz it down with water, rub my hands together vigorously and touch it up. The heat from your hands resets the hair!

     

    DAY 46

    I'm learning so many things about hair color. The only thing that's changed on me over the last month or so has been my hair. But there’s a difference in the way I’m treated depending on which color I choose for the day. I received the most compliments on my hair as a brunette. I feel the most at home in this color. The consensus seems to be that I look younger, "classier" was the word used. But as a blonde I received more concessions: men allowed me to go first in line; I got little extras at the counter; and (of course) I got looked at. Even women were giving me the “once over”. Each color has its advantage for sure.

    WEAR WIGS? ... WHY YES!

    Recently in an interview I was asked if I wear wigs all the time. I don’t. As a matter of fact, I haven’t worn one in more than five years. And before then, I just did it for fun or on rare occasions even though I’ve worn extensions and hairpieces to give my natural hair a little boost. At that moment I realized I didn't know exactly what my clients go through living with wigs on a day-to-day basis. I’ve always been convicted and passionate about helping my clients and giving them the information and education they need to have a great experience with wigs. That’s what really prompted me to start on my 30-day journey. I want to know the benefits and struggles they go through and how it affects them emotionally on a daily basis. I didn’t have the answers yet, but I was ready to find out. Come with me as I take you through my wig experience.

     

    Day 1

    Today marks the beginning of my 30-day journey and all I can say is 'so far, so good'. I decided to go with a wig I tried on about a year ago, which was in my closet. It’s synthetic, so it kept the style pretty well in the bag. And I didn't have to do too much except shake it out and put it on. Guess what? I'm a redhead right now! It's funny how color can change your mood (I feel a little sassy). No wig cap because I don't have one at the house. But I used a ton of bobby pins! Throughout the day I felt a little self-conscious, like I had to explain that I have a wig on. But the truth is it actually looks better than my hair does most days. And by the end of the day, my hair looked just as good as when I started this morning!

    Day 5

    On the fifth day, I went blonde. My hair is naturally light brown. Well, actually, it's naturally dark brown. But I've been dying for about five years to a lighter brown. Seriously though, blondes most definitely have more fun! I went with a shorter blonde wig with dark roots because I felt it looks more natural. But, I kinda feel like I look totally unnatural. I’m sure it’s just because I'm not used to seeing this. But everybody seems to love this one. It makes me feel like I look younger.

     

    Day 7 

    Amelia by Envy

    OK… Verdict is in. It’s day seven and blondes definitely have more fun! This week’s wig is really great, but it's a little on the pricey side because it's human hair. The only disadvantage is that I do have to style it. (I confess, I had help styling this one.) It feels amazing. It’s so weird because I still feel like me but every once in a while I catch a glimpse in the window or mirror and it's so shocking how different I look. I really like it, though. I never thought I would like a shorter wig like this chin length bob I’m wearing.

     

    Day 9

    It’s day nine now and I’m realizing how much the people you know and see on a daily basis really aren’t paying that much attention to how you look. People at my kids’ school and at the office either don't notice a thing or they don't want to mention it. It seems people don't care as much as I thought they would. By now the self-consciousness about having a wig on is completely gone! It's starting to feel normal.
