So last week I discovered a beautiful purple wig, Mackenzie by Freetress Equal, and was quickly dismayed when I learned it was sold out everywhere! The good news is that I managed to order one and it’s coming tomorrow (Tuesday), but in order to quench my desire for a fun colored wig in the meantime, I ordered another wig in a turquoise color – the Suzie wig by Freetress. For $35 a pop, could I really go wrong?
Now, as I mentioned in the video review above, I hadn’t tweezed the part yet when I filmed the video, and that makes a HUGE difference in terms of the realism. Here’s a photo after I tweezed the part and added concealer. I don’t think it would fool anyone up close, but for $35, I really don’t expect it to.
For some reason, the wig looks really blue in the video, but it’s definitely more of a mint/teal/turquoise color. Here’s a few photos that show the true color!
Let me know what you guys think – I’m definitely still getting used to the crazy color and will probably only wear it when I’m feeling funky! You can buy this wig here.
This past weekend, we went to my boyfriend’s best friend’s wedding. I wanted to do something a lil’ fancy with my hair, but styling a wig or topper in an updo can sometimes be a challenge. I came up with this super quick and easy style that looks a lot more complicated than it actually is. I’m wearing my Noriko Milan here, which is a topper with a very large base, so while it can be worn up, the ponytail or bun has to be pretty low.
I created this look in a few simple steps:
1) With my hair down and the topper on as normal, I braided a small braid on both sides of my head, about 1/2 way down my hair- not a french braid (ain’t nobody got time for dat), just a normal braid. Then secured the end of each braid with a bobby pin so they wouldn’t unravel.
2) I then gathered both braids and the rest of my hair into a low ponytail and secured that with a hairband.
3) I twisted the ponytail into a bun and secured that with a few bobby pins.
4) Added a metal chain headband to add visual interest and give it a sort of Grecian vibe, pulled out a couple of wispy hairs on the side, and… voila! This look took less than 10 minutes.

Human hair wigs and toppers are luxurious, but synthetic pieces have their perks as well. Which type is right for you? The answer might be both! I outline the pros and cons of each type of hair in this video.
It’s true – I’m still living, still breathing, and still… balding. 😉
I’m officially the worst blogger ever. Little did I know how crazy my life would get after I decided to start this blog. I really wish I hadn’t let it fall by the wayside. I’ve been awful at responding to comments and emails you guys have been sending me and I truly feel terrible about it. I got a promotion at work shortly after the last blog post I shared on here, and on top of that, I started my own little side business… so my life has been an INSANE whirlwind ever since then.
There’s a lot that has happened in the almost full year since I last blogged! I started wearing mainly toppers, rather than wigs; I discovered a medical condition that had been severely exacerbating my hair loss; I officially decided NOT to shave my head, after being on the fence about it for a long time; and, of course, I acquired a lot of new hair… including what I now consider to be my holy grail hair.
Needless to say, I can’t fit all that into one blog post. But I promise I will update over the next few weeks with as much information as I can!
In the meantime, here I am in my recent hair choices, all of which I hope to review in detail here on the blog soon 🙂
Hi! I’m Kellie, and I’ve had androgenetic alopecia since my teens. I’m now 27 and I’ve been wearing supplemental hair (wigs/toppers) since I was 23. My blog serves to provide support and tips to women who are going through hair loss and exploring their supplemental hair options. I hope the information you find here is helpful to you, and you know that you are not alone!
