I went wig shopping today ... and it was actually a blast! Who knew trying on new hairstyles could be so much fun? Luckily, there's a hair salon right around the corner from us whose owner is quite knowledgeable about wigs and helps quite a few chemo patients. She took one look at me and said, "I have just the wig for you." And she was right. After trying out the spectrum of blonde, redhead and brunette (and then some), the one she pegged for me from the start was my favorite, too. It's different enough from how I usually wear my hair that it feels fresh but not outrageously wierd. It feels light and summery — and more chic than anything I've managed to do with my real hair. I'm actually looking forward to wearing it! Here's a side view. It's all fake and very reasonably priced.
And here's my impulse purchase. I put it on and couldn't stop smiling and swinging my head around. I can't wait to wear this one to play group! (And hey, it even matches my tote bag!)
And for when I'm really in the mood to shake things up, I think I'll be sporting this little cap. ;-) (Don't click the link if you're easily offended.)
