I have to say I own 6 or 7 different wigs. It took me a while to find one that I felt suited me, framed my face and made it look less “man big”. I went to the beauty supply stores in search of the right wig. But the most of my wigs came from Wish.com. They were so much cheaper than anywhere else. My current fav wig is natural hair and cost $35 plus shipping. It takes sometimes a month to get it but it is so worth it. The synthetic wigs I have are hot to wear. This natural hair wig is cool and moves so nice.
So lady’s, in the comments let us know your score and what would it take to make it a 10.
What are your thoughts about your hair. Love to hear them.

I voted a 10. The correct hair makes a person. Must have/had around 12 to 15 total but there are only a few I wear. Some experimenting lead me to buy many and I feel it was worth it. Have sold or given some away, might have 6 or 7 now but have 1 GoTo 95% of the time.

I answered 5, right in the middle, because I do like some things about my hair. I love the texture and color. I’ve had GG’s ask me how I get my hair so thick and wavy when I do let it get kinda long. I have been tempted to stop cutting it and grow it out, but so far the heat and maintenance have always kept me going back to the barber shop to get it cut short.
On the other hand… I need to enjoy the color while it lasts… I’m 33 and I already have a pretty noticeable amount of gray! Also my hair is bad at hiding what are probably my most masculine facial features, my high forehead and gorilla brow ridge. If I had anything even remotely resembling a feminine hairline, forehead, and brow area, I would probably have long hair by now.
Wigs can be annoying but I like them, and will probably stick with them for the foreseeable future. They let me change hairstyles and colors quickly and easily, and even better, I can pull them into the right position for the hairline I want. I have three wigs right now and will probably get more.
Note: I’m not wearing a wig in my profile shot! FaceApp gave me those beautiful bangs and curls! I still can hardly believe that thing lol.

I voted a 5 because there’s sometimes I like my hair, and sometimes it drives me crazy. I’m getting older but for whatever reason, I still have a full head of hair, and it’s still rather thick. But…the very straight natural brown that was there and is being replaced by grey is coming in in waves – a definite wave in the front and another on the left side (any maybe more elsewhere I haven’t yet noticed), both of which cause considerable problems in trying to do the generic left side part. I’d sort of like to let it all grow out and see what happens, but I doubt that will pass muster. I use a conditioner on it right now and that allows me to get it combed looking sort of okay after a washing, but as it dries, like the ocean, in come the waves. <sigh> My wigs, of course, right now solve the problem.

I answered a 2… for the two bad wigs I have….. bad because I am not happy with how I look in them … one is a bob… and is too short….. the other is a curly number…… again, a bit short and somewhat unflattering…. I read on line somewhere that older “girls” like me need a wig with smooth lines … the bob fits that description, but is too short for my face… a longer bob might do the trick.. I was not able to try on either of the wigs I bought and will probably wait until the show room re-opens at the CD Boutique that I found… so I can try on a wig before purchasing.
I like Dr TJ’s advice that money should not be the object when shopping for a wig…. go for quality… but some of the girls have mentioned that they got inexpensive wigs that they love…. so I continue my search for “the perfect wig”. It’s a fun search….

I answered 8. my hair is starting to curl a little at the ends, I’m loving the feminine look I get when I brush it just right. I am a little worried my fine hair is coming out at an alarming rate, I need to do something soon. I am also annoyed at all the gray in my hair.
Fortunately I have an apt at Ulta in 2 weeks. I hope they can help me pick a good color for my hair and give me tips for my hair care.

I picked a 1 because I’m bald on top and i have to wear a wig i only have the 1 wig,
I’ve been meaning to try and get a few more in different colours,
If i had the money i would love to have a hair transplant and then let it all grow out before having it styled i would love to have it long and down my back,
It would be nice to have it long and styled and look like a woman x
Hugs Rozalyne x

Hi Diane… at 71, I’m growing my hair which is now below my shoulders. My wife has colored my hair with medium brown but I can’t style it they way I want. My last cut/style was early June when I had my stylist cut it to resemble a wig I saw online (I confided in her about me being CD). BTW, I don’t have any wigs.

Yep…it helps to have professional help in this department.
When I lived in Nashville, I was furtunate to hook up at the Wig shop where one of Dolly Parton’s wig folks worked. She sat me in front of a big mirror, dressed up, and gave me great info and 3 great looking wigs.
Never buy cheap, she said. Get the most you can afford, and then some.
I’ve never forgotten.
At 74 , I am pleased with my look.

I, too, went thru a few wigs before finding the perfect one.extremely happy with it, a like new EBay find.My own hair grew quite long during the first days of Covid, with all hair stylists closed, but once they reopened,with summer humidity approaching,was time to get it cut.

I answered a 5. My last haircut was at the end of February. At the time I told the hairdresser I was thinking of growing out my hair and wanted it cut to satisfy both sides of me. She knew exactly what I was talking about. I was also, at the time, planning to buy my first wig and get a makeover. Covid nixed the wig and makeover and I’ve been growing out my hair since.
My hair is a thick, wavy, salt & pepper. It’s now covering my ears and is always in my eyes. I usually wear a hair band or a bandana to keep it out of my eyes. While it’s getting long, it’s not really long enough to do anything with. I don’t really know what to do with it. Suggestions are always appreciated. My goal is to wear it in a high ponytail.
Fortunately, my wife is cool with the long hair. One of my GG neighbors think I look cute (if she only knew).

I have my own long hair, (touches my belt if I lean back), neutral gray. We love to put it different ways, braids, ponytail, pigtail, sloppy bun, or wild and free. Love decorations such as ribbons, bows, barrettes, sparklies. Yes, even in male mode! Of course, i would like it to be thicker like it was in my youth, but am content that I still have hair at my age.

I have shoulder length hair which is now getting very fine and wispy. I keep it coloured and prefer the reds and chocolate colours to my own mousy nondescript tones – not that I actually know what my natural colour is as its been years since its not been dyed.
I used wigs in my early days in the 1980’s, until a hairdresser chastised me for covering up my natural hair, he gave me a trim and styled it with mouse and gel, then promptly dropped my wig into the bin ! Needless to say I have not bought another wig since then.
I do find that my hair wont hold a curl no matter how long I have heated rollers in or what tongs or products I use. It looks great at the time, then when I walk out side close the house door and ‘boof’ … it all reverts back to a semi-scarecrow look !!
However I love my hair and enjoy putting into elaborate styles, so have given an 8 on the scores.

I have to go with a 7. I love my natural hair. However, I have kept it military short since I was in high school which does limit the feminine styles.. At the same time, I hate wigs as they make me feel like I am hiding who I am which is something I detest. I have dabbled with thoughts of growing my hair out. Those thoughts, unfortunately, have not progressed much pass an academic nature. My loves my short hair, and she loved it before knowing of my feminine feelings. Additionally, my hair becomes quite unruly in the phase between short and medium length for a man, when it is too short to style, but too long not to be styled. Alas, I will stay with my short hair.

I love my hair. I’m 66 and I haven’t cut it since I retired almost 4 years ago. It hangs down past my bra strap. It is starting to get a bit too much gray covering up my lovely natural auburn color. And I am noticing that it is starting to thin a little bit. Most woman have told me that they would love to have my hair. It is so much better having natural hair as opposed to wigs. I do have two pretty good quality wigs (from those days before I retired) which I’m keeping just in case. Fingers crossed I won’t need to go back to wearing wigs for a long time to come. Stay healthy, stay safe, all the best, Hugs, Krista.

love my hair and how’s it growing. 2 years in and now down past my bra strap. I’m blessed to be able to grow it out and looking forward to seeing it longer. Full body and with very natural color, a little bliss of silver just to set it all together. 🌷

It depends on what you mean by “my” hair. My real hair is a dark chocolate brown and is long, like down to my bra strap. It’s greying, and difficult to get the grey colored out at this current time. It doesn’t cover my forehead, which has a decidedly masculine look to it, but I can add clip on bangs to do that. But my hair is extremely fine. The ends curl up with humidity, and it needs to be flat ironed several times a week. The total volume of hair is so little that gathering it all into a pony tail I have less than if a genetic woman gathered half the hair on one side of her head. (My mom also had very fine hair, so it may be genetic and not just a male/female thing.) I would give it about a 6.
If you mean my wig, I would give it a 9. It is the same color as my natural hair so the color looks good on me, and I will often let the ends of my natural hair hang below the bottom of my wig. It has bangs and curves around my face framing it nicely. It is slightly shorter than my natural hair. It is comfortable to wear even on hot days. The hair tends to fall into my face if I look down, so I need two bobby pins to hold it from falling in my face. I can wear it for long periods of time, but need to remove it for core exercises as it tends to fall off. I would give it about a 9.

I had to say 7, though some days it’s lower. I still have most of it, like my color and it is ( slowly!) growing.
I’m just flummoxed and bewildered over what to do with it. Must look up the meaning of the word – styling. 🙁

I picked 5, as, when I can get a haircut, it at least works well enough in guy mode.
For girl mode it would never do. It’s very unruly, always has been. I guess I might be able to manage that “just out of bed look” well enough, but that’s about it.

I picked a 5. It could look a lot better, and it could look a lot worse too, especially if it was longer, but I have to keep it short for work. I do own 5 different wigs though, 3 shoulder length and 2 bobs, which makes it kind of fun to switch back and forth for different occasions during the same week or weekend. It keeps friends guessing, lol.
If I could wear it as long as I wanted, it would be at least down to my shoulder blades, then I could learn to braid it sometimes too. Women can do so much with their hair, compared to a guy.

Thanks Wendy. I went to Phoebe Cross here in Ga. for my first crossdressing experience and she put me in this beautiful auburn wig that just looked great on me. I would have bought it from her if she would sell it to me but she wouldn’t. I have tried to find it since with no luck. I really love the one I am pictured in lately. I think it frames my face nicely and feels good on my head. I shave my head by choice. When I know I’m going to dress up I let my bald head grow out just a bit so it grips the wig like velcro.

I didn’t vote as I don’t have much hair left on my head, thank you old age ! 🙂
I own about 11 wigs, however 4 of them are very good quality, 3 are ok quality, and the rest are what I deem “costume” wig quality. I only wear those if I am doing things like cooking or house chores, as I don’t want my good wigs to become soiled with cooking grease or soaked in sweat.
The 4 good quality ones, I did lots of research on them before I added to cart. I made sure the colour (so it best suits my skin tone), style, all framed my face well.
