The day had come. The day that my “new hair” had arrived. I anxiously drove to the wig shop with thoughts of Lady Gaga, Madonna and all other proud Wig Wearing Women. As I sat in the “fitting chair” at Feke Wigs, I felt like a child on Christmas morning. I waited with breathless anticipation for the great reveal. Ta-da! There it was, MY new hair……long and luxurious. She put it on my head and it fit like a glove. Perfection! As she continued to talk to me about how to brush my wig, wash my wig, care for my wig my thoughts wandered…..who was this person in the reflection? Like an actor playing a part I felt like a different person. A vixen with a long lioness mane, sexier, younger…..Me but not me. I still had my own hair which is thin and short in contrast to the thick luxurious locks I had just acquired, otherwise known as the $600 “la fancy wig”. I walked out of the store trying to manage my long tendrils blowing in the wind, getting stuck in my coat, getting stuck to my face…by the time I arrived to my car the wig was pulled off my head and placed on my passenger seat. This was just the beginning of my love/hate relationship with “la fancy” wig.
