My hair this week

My Beshe Drew lace front!

I bought 2 more wigs from my list!

Okay, I'm going to stop with the curly for now and start with maybe longer wavy ones. I think 4 is enough for now. Actually no, I tried on Nia Girl and my cousin almost fainted when I put it on she liked it so much, so I'm thinking about her.

**Update, I bought the infamous Beshe Drew wig since writing this post**

Okay, so Amerie is short, tight curls, 1b/33, La Efrah is fro'ish and 1b, and:

FreeTress Monroe Girl Full Cap (refer to my first wig post)
Bought her in 1b at my local beauty supply store about two weeks ago, Sam's, for $21.99. She comes with two combs, one in the front, one in the back and an adjustable strap.
She doesn't have a cap and seems kind of sparse, but that could be because she's on the white styrofoam wig head and it shows up more. She definitely cannot blend with my natural hair because it's a thinner hair fiber and looser curl, so I'll be rocking her as a full-cap. I bought some wig control spray last Tuesday to give her a little more control. I may trim the bangs, we'll see.

Vanessa La Apple Express Weave (aka 1/2 wig)
I had read when I was compiling my list that this was a fav of natural hair ladies, so I've been on the look-out since she wasn't available at the place where I got both Amerie and La Efrah. When doing a search on her I saw that my girl LolaKinkz did a YT review on her about a year ago and it looked great. I found her while checking out hair places on Flatbush with my cousin two Saturdays ago. I didn't plan on buying a wig, but she was right there and they only had one 1b...I took it as a sign. Got her at Wig Club for $24. No other place I checked on Flatbush, about 3 others, carried Vanessa brand wigs, they all had FreeTress like it was going out of style though, geez. Wig Club will be my new place to buy Vanessa wigs if my original place doesn't have a unit I want.

I did a YT video on La Apple, check it out here

I've been battling a cold the last week, but stay tuned for a YouTube wig review on the wig I'm wearing below. I also plan to do a video on my daily makeup routine. I just ordered my first LACE FRONT WIG! The coveted naturally curly styled Beshe Drew wig. I ordered her from on Friday and she shipped already! Expect a vid on that too. I have yet to do a review on two eye-shadow palettes I bought back in September. An Urban Decay and a Sephora one. I am also taking up the challenge of decorating my friend's daughter's little Converse with ribbons and all things cute! Stay tuned!

My hair Wed. Oct. 5 2011

Loving this hair!! It's BIIIG and exactly how I want my own hair to be. This hair is super light (as in not heavy) and it was a windy day at times here in NYC yesterday and I often felt like my hair was becoming a hot mess, but every time I checked in the mirror with one eye open, it was all good. Blending of my hair in this style is a little harder since the wig hair is going forward on top of it. For some reason I feel it's easier to blend backwards than forwards. Certain parts of the wig are super shiny and defined and others are less shiny and more 'fro, that's the part that blends the best with my hair. Also, I pulled out my own hair too much and it lost the twist-out form. I may try wetting my own hair tomorrow and putting some gel to see how that works, my hair always looks more shiny in wash-n-go form. The only thing I fear with that and trying to blend is the shrinkage. We'll see.

I did a quick YouTube video on yesterday's style, take a look here

Style #1 with my Vanessa La Efrah Wig

Not the first time wearing this headband, but it looks different with longer hair
Of course I had to start off with a headband for my first style, no thought process involved in it! The hair is actually pushing the headband forward and every so often I have to fix it. Which wouldn't be so bad if not for that floral piece to the front. FRO POWER!

I did a YouTube video (click) on today's style. Still getting the hang of that whole process and trying to work the editing website. Also, watching myself on-screen...I really need to get more sleep, my eyes look so tired! How do journalists do it?? :P

I went to a beauty supply store here in Manhattan on my lunch break to check out their wigs, they have tons and I never paid attention before. They're on 32nd Street near Penn Station. I'm having fun scoping out my next look. I saw a few that I liked:

Bobbi Boss Tucci

Ranges from about $28-$35
Modu True Match, TM-143

Don't laugh, I think in a 1B, if it's pulled out, tousled and maybe trimmed a bit, it can look great!
About $25
Sensationnel HZ-7009 

I think it will look good pulled out a bit.

Looking at them online is not the same, I know. You had to be there.
