      Thank you for your note and I’m glad that you enjoyed it…yes, the wigs are incredibly realistic and I’m still a bit…OK, more than a bit…shocked that just about everyone thinks that its my hair!

    Fine post! Thank you for sharing your unique perspective and use of wigs. I do challenge you to reconsider one thing; you can wear hair out of uniform. We all do! There are many beautiful offerings for men in 2018, so do not rule it out, if you desire “hair” for your day job. I teach at a University in my wigs and I have no issues.
    Best wishes for your continued success!

    Wonderfully well researched, and I love that you reached out to the hair loss community from the re-enactment community. Fun with hair and experimenting with appearance is for everyone 🙂

      Thank you for your kind note and remember that I consider myself part of the hair loss community myself…just another chapter. Yes, it’s fun experimenting with hair and especially when some of the most critical observers actually believe that the wigs that I’m wearing are actually my real hair!

    Hi, Jeff,
    Where were you with your enthusiasm during my college history days?? What a great guy to have for an instructor! Your wigs are perfect for each occasion, and in fact, I wouldn’t have taken them for wigs at all, given their quality. SO glad you know better than to combine gunpowder and synthetics! The history lesson, with great art works was perfect, and I much appreciate your compassion for women with wig insecurity. Keep up the great work, educating those lucky enough to see your re-enactments. Your attention to detail is gratifying to learn of. Best wishes, Kathy

      Thank you for your kind words and I greatly appreciate your support for what I’m doing. I make every effort to include in each lesson some examples of how real people that lived a couple of centuries ago and my experience as a living history reenactor has been a big help. To illustrate how men dressed in the 16th through 18th centuries, I wear my outfits complete with the wigs described in my post and the students love it – I show a video about how women dressed to complete the picture. In deed, during one class two of my female students – both of which usually take copious notes – just sat there and stared at me the whole class. When I asked them why they weren’t taking any notes, one of them responded that if they didn’t know me – the fact that I don’t have any hair – they would swear that the wig (Blake in this case) was my real hair…incredible…like I said, if I can pull it off, then all of you ladies out there should not be concerned.
