…shoes, that is. Isn’t that a “thing” with most women? I know, back in the day, even though I only really rotated between three or four well-loved pairs of shoes, my closet was overflowing with them.
I still have a healthy shoe collection, but my focus has definitely been on hair. Much like shoes, no matter how happy you are with your current hair piece, you’re always on the hunt for something else. Because, there’s GOT to be something better out there. A better color. A better texture. Something more like our bio hair. THE ONE is out there, somewhere.
That’s one of the best things about wearing hair – you get to constantly experiment with and try on new pieces.
And if one option doesn’t work? Keep it for an “around the house” wig or topper. Wear it on weekends only. Cut bangs into it to try a new look. Or–if the website you buy from allows it–send it back for a refund.
When’s the last time you could say that about your bio hair?
I was going through my hair stash a few weeks ago as it was overtaking my bathroom closet. I always knew that is what I’d find, but it was still astonishing to look at it all laid out.
This, my friends, is 10+ pieces of what appears to be all the same brown hair toppers and wigs (nope, your eyes don’t deceive you, I know they look identical). Believe it or not, there are probably six different pieces here. Not including the three –you guessed it– brown hair toppers I just received in the mail.
While some hair loss sisters are constantly on the prowl for more comfort or more coverage, I guess you could say I’m on the hunt for more BROWN.
Is that sad?
I think we can all agree that color makes such a huge difference in how we look. For me, just a bit too red or gold immediately makes me look super-pale. I’m a neutral brown kind of girl (although, I did recently learn I can pull off warmer tones if there are ashy highlights to offset them), and I’m always looking for just the right shade.
My ideal hue? A neutral-ish brown (about a level 8, at least in the synthetic world) with golden blond highlights on top. But not too yellow. More caramel than butterscotch. A bit of ash. But not too ashy. It’s all so complicated, and why I was never happy when I got my bio hair colored, either.
It might be crazy, but I love my big ol’ collection of brown hair toppers and wigs. It represents so much to me. A few tears. A ton of trial and error. A bit of money down the drain (yikes).
What can brown do for you (get it?)? So, SO much.
