Out Of The BLUE!

Trying out a new wig for the first time is like test-driving a BMW—you KNOW you look cool, but you’re scared as shiz that somebody is going to point out that the car you’re driving, isn’t YOUR car at all—and, as a matter of fact, YOU drive a moped.

Oh, I’m no stranger to “the fear”. Just last weekend, I test drove my “Out Of The Blue” wig by Hairdo. She’s a synthetic (she’s fake hair, yo), heat-friendly (I can blow dry, straighten, curl —or even crimp her) breathtaking pastel blue wig with very natural looking roots. I still have enough bio hair to pull out a border around my hairline that I blend with the edges of the wig hair—-it makes the hairline look like mine (seriously). The hair itself is totally realistic and I felt like I was killing it with that cut—a short, face-framing bob equals fabulous! I was FEELING IT.  I worked my whole outfit around her, I couldn’t stop looking in the mirror—it was selfie heaven...Until I saw my seven-year-old son. He stared at me in shock. And not the good shock either—the "holy cow!" kind. When his six-year-old sister saw me she said, rather nonchalantly, ”I don’t very much like it. It’s too light and it looks like it’s for a boy.” …And with the spontaneous observations of children, my already fragile confidence was trashed. So, what did I do? Honestly, first I stared at myself in the mirror, defeated, trying to figure out where my wig went wrong. Just moments earlier, I felt like Katy Perry. What happened? I’ll tell you what happened—I let a coupla kids mess with my head. And here’s the thing- you can’t pull off wearing a pastel blue wig unless you have the confidence to pull off wearing a pastel blue wig. So, I had some work to do. I talked myself back up. Sometimes you have to be your own motivational speaker, even if you aren’t feeling motivated.

I made a deal with myself—-wear it for one day. Get through ONE day. Deep inside, I knew that the comments of small children shouldn’t affect me in such a big way. On the surface, however, I wanted to crawl into a hole. When I looked in the mirror, I expected to see Beauty Queens Gone Bad. Instead, I saw that same gorgeous gal with that beautiful blue bravery sprouting from my head. I mean, come on—at some point in life, you have to stop caring what other people think. Did my kids’ opinions change my wig? No. Then it shouldn’t have changed how I felt wearing it. I was still driving a BMW. Sure, it wasn’t mine, but I felt pretty awesome in the driver’s seat. I just had to rev that engine loud enough so all I could hear were my own confident thoughts. I had a bad-a** set of wheels and I was ready to roll! Seriously—-most people don’t have the guts to test drive a BMW (or a blue wig), so you’re already cool by default. And once that confidence grows, it glows. And people notice. I went on that day to get several compliments—-and from adults, too!

    Hi Wendy! I read your first blog and I loved it. For me, it was honesty in the first degree. While I don’t have Alopecia, I have friends that do and I have friends that lost hair due to cancer.
    In searching for wigs, I found you wrote another blog. I love it even more and wait for the next one. You bring the spring that follows the winter by offering the choice to brave up and see the wonderful option of wigs in today’s world. These wigs look great and you look great! End the descrimination against hair loss. Get a wig just for you!
