Imagine my shock then when I got shipped my wig with bangs and didn't like the bangs look anymore. I guess with Natural hair I always put on weaves with bangs when my hair was short because there was no logical way to make it work. I'm not particularly a fan of the random side closure sans bangs. To be fair my hair stylist made this wig in my absence and cut the bangs a little too short and you know with bangs it's a hit or miss!
The first day I wore the wig, I threw on a hat, which made it look better but I felt like a clown. One of my friends said I was ON my Nicki Minaj. But I felt choked, like my entire face was being swallowed. Instead of studying at the library, all day, I looked for videos on Youtube on how to make short bangs work. Nothing was helping. I got to my room semi-defeated that I'd have to rock this wig another couple of days and then find someone to put in a weave on the weekend. Then Eureka! It hit me. My hair is NOW long enough, how about I make it an extension of the bangs. Yea....that didn't work. So in playing around, I swept the bangs the side, pulled the wig further backwards on my head and curled my hair OVER the bangs and Voila! The wig was transformed. In my tiny room , I promise I did every dance known to man.
So I thought I'd share because, there's nothing as frustrating as something almost being perfect. Looks like a weave will have to wait! I'll be rocking this wig for a couple of weeks and taking care of my naps underneath!
All this advise I'm giving lately, someone give me a column... "Ask Lady Ij" lol...
Peace, Love and Wig Styling!
