    Default Have you ever worn a wig?

    Hi all. I have short hair. I used to have very long hair, but got sick of the work involved and have had it quite short for a few years now. Sometimes I miss long hair. I've tried growing it out a few times but always end up cutting it.

    Anywho, I have been considering buying a wig, just about shoulder length, just to change things up every once in awhile. Are they hard to wear? I feel kinda silly and think well WTH, we women wear padded bras (some of us), makeup, etc.

    I don't plan on spending a fortune on one anyway, it would just be "for fun."

    Tips? Advice?

    I'm sure there are plenty of great natural looking wigs out there but personally, if I see a woman in a wig I think they must be ill or have alopecia and I feel bad for them.

    yeah I know what you mean faithanne. I guess I'm hoping it wouldn't look too obvious to people who didn't know me.

    I did on Halloween. I looked kind of like (an even more unfortunate) Dave Grohl with bleached hair.

    If you are going for a not too expensive just-for-fun wig then your best bet is to go for something wild and funky that's obviously a just-for-fun wig. As Faithanne says there are some really good and realistic wigs out there but you are going to have to pay through the nose for them. Would clip in hair pieces be a better alternative for you?

    when i was preparing for chemo, i went to the American Cancer Society to find out about wigs. They had some there to try out. Supposedly good ones.

    i put one on and it was way too heavy for me. i felt smothered. Never went back.

    Like mo said, on Halloween and they felt too heavy and cumbersome. My girlfriend who is black wears them and I think she looks awesome.

    There are some very good wigs out there but they are expensive. Probably not worth it for "fun" purposes. If you have a Jewish neighbourhood nearby there will be plenty of wig shops.

    You can even make your own clip in hair pieces, it takes a tiny bit of time and less skill than sewing a button. You can take an entire fall or piece and break it down into bits, clip those in. I would spend the money on a quality wig if you want to throw it on every now and then and not have it be costumey.

    I wear a human hair wig everyday (Orthodox Jewish), and they are easy to wear, but they are very expensive. I think if you don't spend a lot, it will definitely look wig-like. Come to think of it, a friend of mine bought a synthetic wig in a black neighborhood and it didn't cost a lot and it looks great, so you could try that.

    Have you considered a pink wig? heehee. I say, go for it. Have fun with it!
    Wigs were very in for a minute in the 70's. My mom had one in a bob style. Very ugly. She eventually gave it to me to play with. Being the genius child I was, I figured out if I wore the wig backwards it was the perfect long shag. Very popular then.

    llama, i see orthodox jewish women in new york with wigs all the time. some look good, others look obviously fake. but i have a question: do orthodox women shave their own hair or do they just cover it up with wigs? i've always wondered.
