Guys! Guys.Ophiasic as heck over here these days. Really feeling like I am finally ready to bite the bullet and get a great wig. Tired of the (mostly passable) craft project that my self-styled hair…Continue

It's way past my 9-5 working person's bedtime, so this may or may not be coherent. I just feel compelled to throw it out there rather than keep it rolling around between my ears.

I have a job that's nowhere near anything I went to school for. I was lucky to get it right before the financial crisis, it's done a lot of great things for me, and it's stable, but it's not the kind of thing I see myself doing forever (though the fact I've stayed in it the better part of 10 years would…

Second attempt: HH Brazilian Curl by It's a Wig. Very long, needs trimming, rough lace and lousy severe hairline right out of the box, but texture pretty soft for a synthetic…


What's New with Me and Wigs

Abandoned the bonding idea for now and am working on embracing more changeable and less costly options. Found a nice homey wig boutique in Richmond and purchased two brunette Raquel Welch's there. In front of people I see all the time but am not super close with (which is most people ;-)) I am still clinging for dear life to the self-made helper hair I've been using for four years... which is familiar but pretty crappy right now since I've got next to no hair, particularly at the front, to…
