The Wig Arrived...

And I think I can make it work.
I've worked with this style before, but in black, as mentioned in an earlier post.
The only thing that shocked me as I took this one out of the package, was the texture of the hair.
I know this wig comes in various qualities, but instead of having silky hair like my last one, the hair on this blonde one is rather odd.
The texture is a bit crimped, but I think this will actually work to my benefit.
my only worry is that it will look too frizzy, but I think the right styling can fix that. Besides, historically I think the texture of wigs and hair due to all the styling and types of hair used (not all of it was human), caused hair to be a little frizzy anyway back then.

My only gripe; the long ringlets are a bit smooshed, so I may need to moisten them and reset them on some foam much as can be done with synthetic hair. A day or two on those should do it.

The below photo is yours truly ;-) wearing the wig in question, right out of the package and brushed out a little. There are a lot of long ringlets that fall from the lower back, but I hid those and draped a few of the shorter ones over my shoulder.

overall, I really like the color. It's close to my own hair color, and if I decide to powder it, the texture should take it nicely.


  1. Holy cow, that's a beautiful wig! Where did you purchase it, if you do not mind my asking? I read your tip about Krylon spray paint and can't wait to try it ... but need a new wig first, haha.

  2. oh sorry, that profile link doesn't go anywhere - this is Lauren from American Duchess ( I'm glad to have found your blog!

  3. Hi Lauren!
    Sorry to reply so late :-(
    I've been bad about keeping this thing updated.
    The wig was actually an Ebay purchase; it's the cheapo version of the "Alonge" wig by Lacy in blonde.
    I'll try to find the link for you.

  4. you can buy teflon curling irons, that's what my friend who works at a wig company uses to style wigs
