I never know if I've gotten the photo change right and then days later I see that I actually did get it to upload. I just wanted to share a photo I took of my new super-cheap $39 ($44 with shipping) wig I bought online. It was one of those spontaneous purchases that I immediately regretted, a wig on clearance. But it came today and I LOVE it! It may look REALLY fake in the bright light of day, but here inside on this cloudy day, I feel pretty in it. It is much closer to the color I wore my own hair and closer to the style and so I feel more like me. Amd it actually FITS better than my $250 wig I got at a hair replacement salon. My first wig was chosen by the stylist who felt I should have a color and cut more 'age-appropriate' than the wigs I was drawn to. And when I saw it on, compared with the wigs I ASKED to try on, I knew he was right. And the salon thinned and cut the wig on me so that it looks natural.
But I was able to trim this cheapy wig I got online myself. It had those really long sexy bangs that hang over your eyes and I liked the vamp-y look, but I KNOW I wouldn't be able to stand that hair hanging over my eyes so I trimmed the bangs in whisps above my eyes. In case anyone else is tempted, it's still on clearance at the America Cancer Society website for $33 and is called 'Meridith'. It's such fun to have a new look! I may get a similar style in a darker red and a better (more $$; microfilament with lace part) wig, but I'm happy and wearing it today when I get my Neoupogen shot at 3.
:D Easy to make me happy!
