Quickie Post: The $20 Curly Wig and Infamous Restroom Picture

Sometimes, especially in the summer, I miss my shorter hair.  The best way for me to solve this without whipping out the scissors like I did before 2010 is to put on my cheapie wig. This is actually a half wig I got from the beauty store for $20.

This wig is not hot at all and is a very lightweight. I just blended some of my hairline into the wig. I absolute love the length!

I wanted to capture a picture of my floral top and decided to snap a quick picture in the restroom mirror. I rarely do this especially in the restroom.  Thankfully this was a very clean restroom. Go NCSU! :)
These pictures were taken with my wonderful HTC Thunderbolt. First two pictures edited with the overexposed effect and the last picture edited with the high contrast effect.


  1. very cute! i would've thought these were old pics had you not said it was a halfie!

  2. Great look! I like your edits to the pictures- whatever it was that you said you did. Is it a requirement to post that on blogs? Your phone took some great shots girl!!

  3. I might just have to walk on up in the beauty supply store...know that I don't believe in purchasing form the BS store, but I will for this wig!!

  4. @Ebony: Thanks! I do have a few pictures of me rocking a hairstyle similar to this a couple of years ago. I think I did a flat twist twist out to achieve this look. :)

    @Monique: Thank you, girlie! No, it is not a requirement. I just wanted to point out the fact this my phone has some exceptional features on it when it comes to photo editing. WAAAAY more than my BlackBerry.

    @MW: I got it years ago at a local beauty store. It is probably discontinued by now but there are so many current wigs out there with similar styles.

    @LoveNWrite: Girl, I was like that when I first started wearing wigs back when I was transitioning. But with soooo many options, it was hard for me to not become hooked. With years of experience, I know which wigs I like and which ones I don't. Plus I know how to make them look more realistic and not so wiggy. Last but not least, it is a great way to give your hair some protection from extreme outdoor conditions in both summer and winter.
