I don’t put on a wig. I put on an attitude. by Rachel

Yep, you heard it. To some, it might seem like wig wearing, but to me it’s deciding how I want to feel and come across to other people that day. That is seriously how I decide which wig I will wear for the day (or hey…for even just that next part of the day…..because I change my wigs more than once a day sometimes!)

When I first started wig-wearing due to Alopecia Areata, I bought wigs that were as similar as possible to what my bio hair looked like.  Honestly, this was probably a really great thing to help me adjust to wearing wigs. However, I didn’t continue to only purchase wigs that looked like my bio hair.

After discovering Cysterwigs and realizing how many AWESOME wig designers, styles, and colors that were available to put on my head, I finally bit the bullet and purchased a wig that was a completely different color and length. This was definitely outside of my comfort zone! This is what changed everything about wig wearing for me.

When I put that wig on I felt like I could pull of completely different outfits, have a different attitude, and really just ENJOY wig wearing! What did I do next? Well, now that I had no limitations on which styles & colors I could purchase (other than my wig budget!!) I started collecting other wigs that had completely different looks, or as I like to call them, attitudes!

Now I can wear whatever attitude I want. I can be sassy, sexy, colorful, relaxed, fun, goddess-like…..really, whatever I want to feel like, I can wear that attitude. I seriously pick out my hair before I pick out my clothes.

What do my friends and other people I meet say? They say that it is totally AWESOME that I have the ability to do this. If they don’t like it, who cares?!, it’s not for them anyways! It is all about how I want to feel, and that is really stinking empowering.

Happy wig wearing y’all!

    I love this Rachel! I couldn’t agree more. I just wish I had started my wig wearing when I was younger so I could pull off some of those awesome super long styles that you and Heather look so dang fabulous in!
