I wear my wig in the style of picture one and three.  But two is a good idea that I will look into.

Where to purchase scarfs for hair and what size do you look for -
 
Okay, we all know you can get scarfs in forever 21, target, etc. 
 
But I found a few cute prints that you may not know about -
 
Vera Bradley sells cloth dinner napkins in cute prints.  I have bought a few and wear them in my hair.  Vera Bradley stores are at most larger malls, as well as you can order items off amazon.Now use your imagination, these are prints but they are vibrant and look so good with jeans, leggings and a sweater, etc.
 
Here is the link - below
 
 
Now this gave me an idea, so I went on amazon and ordered a pack of12 cloth dinner napkins, the size is 20 X 20 in solid colors and they also look great.  Please check your local walmart, sears, jcpenney, target etc for cloth dinner napkins.

Fall and Winter....Hats and WIGS
The fall is my favorite time of year for wearing all my hats.  If you have a wig that is "old" or looks too fake...don't throw it away.  Put it in your "hat" wig category.  One the weekend, when running to the mall or going out...one of my staple fall outfits is some boots, a nice bright colored coat/jacket, a cute hat and my wig.  Here are some pictures ideas....
 
 Crochet Cap or Slouch Hat Adult Medium to Large Daisy and Feathers Turned up BrimSlouch Bubble Beret Crochet Pattern.Permission to sell finished items.Crochet Pattern Ribbed Slouchy Beret - Avery
 
 Pattern Knit Slouch Hat
 


Yesssss! I'm so ready for hat season!
 
Same even though I live in a hot place. Most hats are too small, I have a big head.Thumbs Down Thanks for the tips. I am checking out Yesstyle again they have a good sale going on especially on hats and hair things.
I may get some of these.

Planning to take a cruise next month -

 
Next month I'm going on a cruise, I'm not sure how I'm going to wear my hair but we KNOW...that if you are taking the plane you should NOT secure your hair with pins.
 
My trip is Feb 14 so I am planning now.
 
I ordered 1 fridaynight wig to see how it would look, I have several ideas...either I'm going to sew down a U part wig, I'm going to sew down a lace wig or I"m going to sew down a half wig.
 
The purpose of this post is to remind everyone....plan ahead...if you know you are traveling don't wait until the week before your trip to order hair.  Order a few weeks in advance.
 
I'll post an update of what I end up doing.

If you find a wig, that you really like....and it fits your face shape.....I encourage you to order several.
 
On youtube when I see a video of a sister in a wig that I like.... I save the video in my playlist.  I was going thru the videos and you would be surprised how many wigs that I like are no longer made.
 
So just keep that in mind, wigs have a cycle and after a while unless you are wearing a very popular wig like "bally girl" for example...your wig might be discountinued.
 
I have a staple wig called Top Cassey and she has been discountinued so....when I found out I order like 8 and I have them in a plastic crate in the pacakging in my garage.    So if you have a favorite occasionally buy one and put it aside when your funds permit.

yep, i agree.. My "go to wigs" for work at Stella(HH) and Ann Wig (Synthetic).  to be honest, i bought the Ann by accident when the Stella suddenly became popular and the price went up, or discontinued on some sites. 

Knowing that i will be using this wig everyday, i bought 3 of each to rotate out each week .. Didn't wish to buy a lot because i'm sure i'll get tired of the style in a year..
