Wig frustration

Sigh... I've just been looking around on line for wig ideas. I learned which suppliers the local hair places use and look through the catalogues on line. But what I don't ever understand are the price differences. It could be the same brand of wig but the long hair lengths cost less then the required shorter length. Do I buy long then go to a decent hair dresser to cut it? Do I keep looking for a decent priced short length. Man they are so expensive in the UK. I'm also a bit worried about on…

Awkward situations

So I'm having lunch with a few of my girlfriends sharing little anecdotes about our lives, as you do, when one starts to tell what happened at work.
