Magic Mirror on the wall – who is the most beautiful of them all.
No wig – Miserable old Shrek in a dress.
Wig – OMG! I’m (almost) slightly beautiful – and 15 years younger! And a smile has appeared. Really.
But you do have to have the right colour/style. And this takes trial and error unless you get to a store.
The wig colour that suits me most is Ash blonde – my natural colour before the snow set in – now I am “moonlight blonde.” Strangely – orangey/copper also works.
The style that suits me is a medium bob face framing wig 35cm – 45cm, with a fringe (bangs). The shorter styles don’t lengthen my face. The fringe hides my forehead – so less face is visible. A big no-no is a long straight wig with a central parting – it seems to gives me a sort of round moon shaped face.
Mood seems to affect wig preference too. Sometimes my favourite (35cm Ash blonde) doesn’t look quite right so I opt for a 45cm blonde wig with darker roots. I have quite a short one too (profile pic) which I love sometimes and hate other times.
I have lately started to prefer blonde wigs with darker roots – they look more natural than a monotone one.
