Some days I want to look like Cher; other days I want to look like Dee Snider. I feel empowered when I can pull off “The Rachel,” and I feel fun and crazy when I look like Amanda Bynes going to a court hearing. What I’m talking about here is how I feel when I change my hair. The stuff that’s stuck on my head on a day to day basis is long and blonde—nothing out of the ordinary there. However, every now and then when I go out on the town I like to mix things up; I like to experiment with different looks and meet a different type of person than I would normally meet. So what, you may ask, is the thing that allows me to fulfill this fantasy? Wigs, my dear friends, wigs.
When I wear a bright green wig to a concert, I feel just a tad bit more crazy than everyone else in the room. People approach me more easily than they would when I look like a normal 22-year-old with flat hair and split ends. I always act a little more flamboyant when I wear wigs and I’ve even had people tell me how DROP DEAD SEXY wigs can be. “Oh, this old hunk of chopped up plastic? Just found it in my closet.” However, I must admit that donning a short black bob in public sometimes gives me a second of pause. What they don’t tell you on the packaging is that looking like a completely different person for a night is kind of an adrenaline rush at first. “Should I, or shouldn’t I?” Well let me tell you something that might make this decision easier for you like it does for me: wigs equal free drinks because you’ll look like a rock star. Fact.
The greatest part is that wigs aren’t just sold at Halloween! Non-Lace synthetic-hair wigs (the ones that you can put on without weaving them into your hair) usually cost around $10.00-$50.00 (yandy.com, aliexpress.com) depending on hair count, materials used, and overall quality.
