Every year or so I get tired of dealing with my hair and want to either get braids or hide it under a wig. Last year it was kinky twists that lasted about a day before my hair drew up and made them look like those strips of felt at the end of the car wash. But I had spent 10 hours in a chair and $80 for those twists so you’re damn right I rocked my felt strips for a month before it got too sad to look at. I will not do that again.
When I first went nappy I had a couple wigs I would wear when I wanted big hair, but after it grew too puffy to sit under the wig and too short to pull back to fit under the wig, I ditched them since they were all tangled and nasty anyway. I see you, Beverly Johnson Collection. Anyway it’s been a year and I’m dying for big hair past my shoulders and also tired of detangling constantly so I’m back on the wig tip. I’ve been obsessed with wig tutorials on YouTube and steady stalking hairsisters.com for the past 2 weeks, so I figured I’d share my purchases with you because I know you’re interested in everything on my mind.
First up is Calidiva77 modeling the wig that I’m getting in the mail today. Her channel is full of dope wig tutorials, I’ve been watching the archives a lot. This wig is Freetress Equal “Jackie” lace front.
The other wig I ordered that I don’t know when I’m getting is the Sensationnel Empress “Megan” lace front. These are both synthetic by the way. I don’t plan on wearing these every day so I’m just going to start off cheap and easy and not go all out and get some Beyonce full lace remy wigs. Here’s 1SimplYounique with Megan.
On Friday I’m pretty sure I’m going to Fashion’s Night Out in L.A. so I’ll debut my new hair that night. And I’m planning to try to rock some false eyelashes which I have NEVER been able to successfully do so wish me luck on that tip.
Things have just been bananas over in the Fierce household so I’m not really in the mood to do some kind of cultural criticism for y’all right now, apologies. If you want to see where I AM doing cultural criticism 3 times a week, check out my “Size Matters” column at Bitch magazine. Some of those clowns wear me out, for real, which also leaves me just wanting to talk about makeup and hair. I. can’t. even.
