PDA

View Full Version : A little bit of cheating....I need opinions!

So I was very down about my hair and I know it sounds silly, but I felt out of place dressing up and going out dancing with
my friends with this gross growing out pixie, it just made me feel gross....so I cheated.

I'm sorry there are so many photos, but I wanted to show you every angle because I want everyones honest oppinion on if you think it looks good enough to wear out. I havent yet because I'm kind of nervous, I don't want to embarass myself if it looks silly. Also, this is a synthetic wig but not a costume one, I bought it at a high-end wig shop and it was pretty expensive @_@

aw thank you!!! I really want to wear it out but now I'm nervous, I thought it was awesome until my DBF said he didn't like it :shrug:

I think it's lovely. You could go anywhere in that wig. Really beautiful!

If you hadn't told us you were wearing a wig, I never would have guessed it. I think you look great. If the wig makes you feel better about how you look when going out, then go for it. You are going to look awesome with long hair.

I actually think you REALLY suit your pixie, it works well with your face and I love your glasses. But OMG that wig looks absolutely fantatastic!

Doesn't look like a wig at all, I thought maybe you had some hair extentions or something. Like you say, its great for a night out when you want a different look. It certainly doesn't look silly, in fact you've got me thinking.......I bought some clip in hair extentions and I found them too fiddly getting them to look natural, this might be a great alternative for me.

We posted at the same time, so I didn't see your post about DBF's reaction. Honestly, it looks great. Some people can't get used to change, especially in their loved ones, that's all. There's nothing about the wig that doesn't look good.

I think DBF just likes the way you look as you are. I'd take that as a compliment, and wear the wig anyway. Just tell him that you want a bit of fun with your look. I don't think he can argue with that and he'll adapt. :blossom:

The colour, length, bangs all look great on you and the wig itself doesn't look cheap and nasty. Go for it! :thumbsup:

I second what everyone else has been saying. I'd NEVER have guessed that was a wig, and both the style and the colour look great on you.

That said, I realise your growing-out pixie isn't the look you want, but just for the record: it is most certainly not gross either! You look lovely either way.

Sarahmoon
May 13th, 2010, 07:27 AM
It looks awesome. I think you should consider doing your bangs like that when your hair is longer :)

Thank you so much everyone! So sweet :) I'm feeling better about it allready, cant wait to wear it out!

Yes I'm sure you're right, he likes me the way I am and would prefer me to be happy the way I am, but changing it up sometimes is super fun!

Merci! The pixie isnt bad, I just don't feel very pretty or girly at all with it :( I think once it is long enough to cover my ears I will like it a lot better!

If my hair is thick enough to have bangs like that I will for sure!!!

I think it's REALLY cute! I would make that look a real life goal for sure.

Maybe your boyfriend said he didn't like it because he doesn't want competition for your attention.

hmmm
May 13th, 2010, 08:00 AM
Wow! The wig looks gorgeous on you! Although I love your pixie too, you're very pretty. Don't worry about what your bf said, he's probably just used to seeing you in your pixie, like someone else already said.

Heidi_234
May 13th, 2010, 08:20 AM
Even if you end up not wearing it, this wig shows you you have definitely something to look farward to, and maybe keep the must-change-hair bug away, because it suits you so well!

Pixna
May 13th, 2010, 08:21 AM
That is an exceptionally lovely wig -- I never would have guessed! What it does is show how feminine, beautiful, and HOT you're going to be when your hair gets longer. Don't get me wrong -- your pixie looks really cute on you. But, WOW, long hair is going to be SMASHING!!!

Bianca

It looks great! Perfectly natural on you. Honestly, your boyfriend probably just reacted that way because you looked so different so quickly. My husband gets weirded out when I do anything very different with my look than what he's used to, but after it sinks in, THEN he'll give genuine compliments. Give him time :)

You really look gorgeous with it! And with the pixie - you're one of those lucky women who can probably wear her hair at any length and look fabulous!

I think I will make this a goal for the future :) I really like the colour too of the wig, it's a darker more brownish red which I think might be easier to match to clothes rather than the orange I have now.

yay thank you :) I'm glad it is undetectable! I can't wait to wear it out to the bar with the girls haha.

wow! Thank you! I would never say I'm beautiful ever, I always feel gross but you are a sweetheart!

the wig is gorgeous, I thought you were showing us some awesome new growth. :) It look so good on you.
Also, WAY off topic, but has anyone ever told you you look a lot like Jennifer Morrison aka Cameron from "House"? You do, even more so with long hair.

moominhapa
May 13th, 2010, 09:04 AM
What a great idea! It looks so real. Now you can see what you're working towards (though the pixie does look really nice too).

And don't say you always feel gross--you're gorgeous! You should get that into your head. :)

:agree: That's what I think it probably is. Lots of men seem to react that way to significant, sudden changes in their wife's/girlfriend's appearance.

It looks really great, by the way, as everybody else has said. :thumbsup:

Slightly off-topic: I know you've been told before that you resemble Kirsten Dunst (I remember reading this in the Celebrity Lookalike thread).

You look SOOOOOOO like her in these pics!

Do you ever get stopped in the street and asked for your autograph?

That looks SOOOO natural on you.. I wouldn't have known it was fake.

I love that last picture... The cut is very cute on you and i love the glasses. I know you live really far away from where i am, but what brand are they? I have been wanting to get a kind like that.

jivete
May 13th, 2010, 09:56 AM
I love the wig. You'll be out at, I assume, a dark bar, so it'll be even harder for people to tell. I will warn you, dancing in a wig is tough. They get super hot. but I think you look great!

Ditto to what everyone else has said, that wig looks great on you! The color and length are quite pretty! :)

Maybe your bf just needs time to get used to the wig, since it is kind of a drastic change. I'm sure he'll come around once he sees you in it a couple times!

Tap Dancer

It sure doesn't look like a wig to me. Great choice! :thumbsup: And if it makes you feel pretty, that's the most important thing! :)

I think it looks beautiful, and not like a wig at all! :)
Well, except for the pic where you're wearing a headband. It could suggest you're wearing a wig because the size of your head (with the wig on) becomes so much more obvious with a headband on. I have two wigs myself, and I can wear them with the hair loose, or braided - but as soon as I try to put a hairband, headband or scarf on, it just looks fake.

Wow! At first I thought it might have been an old picture of your before-hair or something, until you said it was actually a wig. It looks really natural on you--I think it definitely looks good enough to wear out. :flower:

haha thank you, I never get asked for autographs but people do stop me sometimes and tell me I look a lot like her. I live in a small town so maybe if I was in the city it would be more believable I was her haha.


That looks SOOOO natural on you.. I wouldn't have known it was fake.

I love that last picture... The cut is very cute on you and i love the glasses. I know you live really far away from where i am, but what brand are they? I have been wanting to get a kind like that.

Thank you, the glasses are actually my boyfriends! We got them at costco, I can check the brand when I get home, they are boy glasses but I love them!


I love the wig. You'll be out at, I assume, a dark bar, so it'll be even harder for people to tell. I will warn you, dancing in a wig is tough. They get super hot. but I think you look great!

I agree, it is rather hot but I would rather look good than be comfy sometimes haha.

YOU ARE MY HERO! I would get glasses from costco anyways because they are much cheaper for me, which is where my last pair was from, But you dont have to look up the brand, our costco doesnt stock anything, only whats on the wall. I will have to pop in and take a look now!

Good luck! They were on the wall when I was there, in the guys section, they are not the narrow thick black frames you usually find, these ones are more of a square than a rectangle, not a perfect square ahaha, they are still a rectangle...just not short and narrow, if that makes sense?

Your boyfriend is probably just not used to seeing you with long hair :) The pixie looks great, and it's what he's used to seeing you in, so I can understand why he'd be a bit hesitant about liking the wig at first.

Personally, I think it looks really natural. I especially like the bangs!

Wow! The wig looks GREAT! I look at the pictures first, then at the post itself in threads like this...totally didn't know it was a wig. Man it looks EXCELLENT. You look like some actress but I can't place which...anyways, it looks GREAT on you.

Well, I wouldn't have known it was a wig. My 9 year old son came over here and I asked him if it looked fake. He said "What looks fake?" I said her hair, and he said, "No, she looks pretty." Then I kept scrolling down and he saw your pixie and he goes, "Whoa!" He was cracking me up. So there you go, it is definately a little boy approved look!

30isthenewblack
May 14th, 2010, 06:53 AM
I think it looks great! I can understand your boyfriend's reaction. He's kind of put in a no win situation. If he says it looks fantastic, you might be bummed about your short hair so the only safe response is to say he loves your hair as it is ... which I'm sure he does because the length of your hair I'm guessing doesn't determine how much he cares about you!

Maddy25

It looks fantastic.

Hey, considering that I've worn a cheap synthetic bobbed wig and managed to fool everyone (admittedly, it's pretty well the same colour and tone as my natural hair, and my hair's pretty thick so the volume of it isn't too unbelievable...) I can't imagine anyone noticing that yours is a wig.

I LOVE the glasses ... and the pixie ... and the wig. Speaking of which, where's the picture of wig with the glasses? :)

It really softens your appearance. And the style really brings out your beautiful eyes! (Your eyes are kind of hidden behind those glasses ; - )

If I saw you, I would only think, "Wow, what a gorgeous red head!" (and then my wife would punch me in the shoulder because she would know what I was thinking :) )
