THE WEDNESDAY WIG: TEAL OMBRE



It's been a long time since I last wrote a Wednesday Wig post - almost a year ago! Today's edition brings one of the prettiest wigs I've ever seen. As soon as I spied it on the Geisha Wigs website I knew it was made for me; soft waves, full thick side fringe, and that ombre!



Sleek true black roots descend into vibrant minty waves. This is it, people. We have mermaid hair.


All swooning aside, it's incredibly comfortable to wear. It's lightweight comparing to most of the longer wigs I own, and I think a large part of that is to do with it tapering out at the ends to give a wispy, waved effect. It's by no means thin, either: this wig still carries a some weight to it, but it's more natural feeling. It literally feels like you're not wearing a wig at all!



I wore it recently to Glasgow. Andrew and I celebrated 10 years since we first got together (TEN YEARS. I know!) by staying in Citizen M. We had grand plans of going shopping, having a big fancy dinner and then heading to see his friends band play at Broadcast...What actually ended up happening though, was we shopped till we dropped into Ichiban, where we stuffed our faces and laboriously rolled up the road to the hotel. We spent ages playing with the mood lighting and eating the delicious fudge that was left out for us, got ready, and then came home after I felt it was too busy and had a minor freakout. Still, I felt like a princess with all of these teal curls bouncing around, and sat wearing the wig in my jammies as we pigged out on junk food and watched rubbish films.

There's a variety of colours available in this style if you feel like the teal isn't for you (or if you're like me and just want to own ALL OF THE WIGS), so click here to see more, including shades of pink and deep red.

This was actually a little nerve wracking to post, seeing as it's my first 'proper' one in a while and not a rushed explanation that doesn't actually explain anything. Here's hoping my mojo is back!
Would you wear a wig? What's your favourite so far?
