My little guy just turned two years old, so you know what that means.
I’ve been wearing hair for TWO YEARS.
Isn’t that nuts?
I started wearing hair within days of my son’s birth, because I knew I was about to lose a ton in the post-partum shed, and was trying to be proactive. I’m so glad I took this path—it changed my life!
Today, I thought we’d look back at five of my favorite posts from “year numero dos”. We have so many new readers on the site that I thought this would be fun and beneficial for everyone.
Plus, I like to reminisce. 🙂
#5: BoostnBlend Hair Fibers: Crazy Before and After!
This was SUCH a fun post to do. How could it not be when you go from this:
You can read more about these hair fibers in my BoostnBlend post, but basically, these little sprinkle-on hair fibers are awesome for concealing hair loss.
Unlike other formulations, they don’t run, they don’t turn green, and they look really natural. The post talks about what technique I like to use (check out the comments) to help make them look totally believable.
I haven’t forgotten that many of you requested a video. It’s definitely on the to-do list.
My bio hair is (sadly) just too plain wimpy to wear hair fibers at this point, but you can bet that if concealing was still an option I’d be pairing BoostnBlend with my beloved Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder to cover up all the thin areas.
Wear topper or wig clips in your hair?
Never fear, there’s a good chance you can get through airport security without setting off the alarm.
For additional peace of mind, you can always wear your hair in a fun half up/half down style like you see below—pin some of your hair back with bobby pins, and if you set off the alarm anyone will think it’s just the pins that did it.
Yeah, I do. Because you kind of murdered my soul that day.
I was super-excited to show you guys my new Noriko Milan in Almond Rocka-R.
She was new!
She was custom!
She was the most beautiful color I’d ever seen!
I still love her and wear her to this day. But, while the initial tally was pretty even, it seems many of you preferred Marble Brown to Almond Rocka-R.
Maybe it was because it was the dead of winter when that post went out, and you were pining for a little less cool, and a little more warm. Marble Brown definitely lends itself more to the warmer/golden side.
I’ll never understand why Marble Brown edged out Almond Rocka-R, but I’m glad you shared your opinion with me!
I still vote for Almond-Rocka-R. So, there.
P.S. If anyone is dying to get her hands on a custom, brand new with tags Noriko Milan in Almond Rocka-R, please leave a comment below and I’ll shoot you an email. I just got my custom order in and I have an extra. Price is $175 plus shipping.
I love taking assumptions and turning them on their heads. No one thinks you can wear wigs in a ponytail, but, you absolutely can!
A low pony will work for most wig wearers no matter how much bio hair you have, but if you have some long bio hair to work with, you can make an amazingly believable ponytail in just two minutes flat.
Looking at this photo makes me want to try blond again…
#1: Super Sexy in Fake Hair (Yea!)
We all have had moments with this hair loss thing where we’ve felt that we’ll never feel sexy again. Like we should feel like less of a woman because we don’t have luxurious, flowing locks sprouting from our heads.
I get it. I’ve been there.
I’ve not had that feeling in a long time since I’ve been wearing hair, and because of my hair I did something that I never thought I’d do.
For my husband’s birthday gift, I had a boudoir shoot done, and lived to tell the tale.
(Bonus: My makeup artist was two inches from my face and was AMAZED when I revealed I was wearing hair!)
(Extra Bonus: This pic has never been seen before. Is the hair not drool-worthy?)
There you have it. Five of my favorite posts from my second year of wearing hair.
Did your favorite make the list??
I still can’t believe it has been two years since I’ve been on my hair-wearing journey!
Remember, let me know if you’re interested in the Noriko Milan!
