It’s been a while, but I rocked a wig this week (much to the amusement of my colleagues!). The reaction was most polarising; I received several positive comments, and just as many sniggers – at least no one was bored. The outfit overall was quite avant-garde, especially for work, but I’ve been wanting to wear that Union Jack dress for a while and the perfect opportunity presented itself – the Aussies won the cricket! So it was more of a ‘commiserations’ outfit for the Brits at my work. That wig was a perfect match with the dress for an overall mod look, very Edie Sedgwick. Several people didn’t recognise me at all!
I love wigs, I have several, all fairly realistic (i.e. not ‘party’ wigs!) – for me they are the perfect way to dramatically change your hair without any commitment or regret. The worst you’ll get are some sideways glances and an outline on one’s forehead from the wig cap! So keep watching for more rug related hijinks.
