So try to have a little fun with your new hair venture; you can have your wig and wear it too!


Own Wearing Wigs


When tackling any insecurities that are understandably brought on by your new hair routine, know that when you’re okay with yourself, others are to. It’s quite amazing actually, and it’s by no means a new philosophy; the laws of attraction have been at play since the dawning of the ages.

When we project insecurity, we pretty much invite party-poopers to offer us their unsolicited two cents or even worse, crash our parties with a simple look, negative vibe, or even just by intentionally and awkwardly avoiding the obvious. So hold your head high and rock your new hairstyle. Slam the door on negativity and seriously shut down the critics by proactively choosing to authentically accept yourself and your circumstances. Because you don’t just buy a wig. You own it.


Be Yourself with Wigs


Today’s technology has created a generation of wigs that are virtually indiscernible from natural hair. Modern advancements in the industry like lace front and monofilament wig options, a wide-variety of hair types, and even rooted wigs, offer a more natural look than ever before.

But just because no one can tell that your wearing a wig, doesn’t mean you need to keep it a secret or play it safe when choosing you look. Whether you prefer a wig that looks exactly like your hair’s natural appearance or you decide to try out a new look, you have real options. You can keep your look natural or completely change it up.

When it comes to wearing a wig there’s really only a few things that’s are mandatory. Try and have some fun, totally own it, and just be yourself. You’ll find that the only unbelievable aspect of your new appearance will be how unbelievably amazing you look.



This really helped me I recently started wearing wigs in public as i have severe hair loss problem. I’m 18 years old and i feel hard to fit in with the people of my age. My friends are very encouraging but a small comment from a stranger makes me anxious and run back home. I find it hard to start a relationship with the other gender even though they are fine with my condition.


Very insightful and realistic advice. I have been wearing a wig for 23 years and am still not 100% confident out in public to this day. I have owned some absolutely beautiful, natural looking , premium human hair and synthetic wigs and still have negative thoughts and worry about imagined opinions from others. As ridiculous as that may seem to some, it’s still very real to me. Your simple advice was just what I needed and I think it will be a big " life changer " for me starting today. Thank you.
