What's the Deal with the Wig?

Many people have asked lately...What's the deal with the wig?
It's purely vanity...and heredity...well, the thin hair part anyway. This is Christmas Day 2005, outside my Mom's home. We really let the kids go nuts with their hair. Parker's is permed...YUCK! and long! Dexter has always wanted dark hair...so I let Erin have at 'em. Dex loved it...YUCK! I love my baby with blonde hair! And I love my Big Baby with no hair at all! But as for me, I don't need so much forehead!

I have complete strangers ask/tell me..."Did you know you've got really thin hair?" DUH! or "Wow! Your hair is thin!" NO! REALLY? THAT MUST HAVE JUST HAPPENED! (Well, it did after I got pregnant. It all started falling out and never came back.)

So that's why I wear a wig. Which do you prefer? Long or short?

This was my first ever wig...it is human hair so Erin colors it whatever color I want! The guy who sold it to me hacked it up and Erin has done her best to fix it. The bangs are really still heavy and we've thinned the crap out of them. Alot of it was me, getting use to THICK hair!


This was my 2nd Wig...also human hair (that really grosses my BIL out!) We are staying with a brown color...but I REALLY want red. I'm gonna have to talk to Erin about that!

And this is what I wear now. I love the short and the color. It is synthetic hair, not human. So it burns up easily...really, I'm serious. I have singed a couple from opening a hot oven and using the BBQ before. You should see me now...it's quite a site! I'll lean over to open the oven and remember my wig and rip it off and throw it across the kitchen as far away from the 350 degree air that is gushing out of the oven straight for my hair that was shipped to me in a box!

First of all, I am soooo glad that you don't have cancer! My sister had it and it was so awful....second of all, how RUDE of anyone to say anything to you about your hair! Did you comment on the face they have? NO! Okay, so there is my rant.

Thirdly, I LOVE your wigs! Here is what I think you should do. Cut your hair pixie short with bright pink (or was it red?) tips, and then rotate through your wigs! They are all adorable. How fun to be able to change your styles all of the time...by the way, I don't think that your real hair looks bad! :)

I love your current look, but I really dig that medium length one too :) (The middle picture) I wish I could style my hair that way.

I love the wigs! Any chance you and your friend can find me something that's blonde?? I've always wanted to be blonde! I love the short one too, although I think you look great in all of them!

How great to be able to get the color you want and never have roots! That would be my dream come true! I love all your looks, but I am partial to short hair...it looks great!

I am laughing so hard picturing your opening the oven and chucking your hair across the kitchen. Seriously can you do that again when I am in the room? I like all your looks. but I like the middle one the best!

Beach Girl said...

I like the middle one best too. Is that the one you got the night we ate at Market Street? You looked so cute that night.

I love the ideas of wigs! I am always wanting to change my hair but never having the patients to wait for it to grow after I have gone crazy and chopped it all off. I love the last one. I also love red!!! I used to be blond but now I go red. Dark in the winter and lighter in the summer. How fun!!

This post made me laugh! I swear i have lost half of my hair since high school. It gets thinner every year, so I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one.
