Okay so you guys know that I am re-transitioning. We are officially on month number 5! The first time time transitioned I big chopped at 5 months. I am currently trying to make it a year before I BC so I don’t go through that awkward too long/too short phase. Plus, I hate headbands. At my age I think headbands should be let go, but that’s for another post.
In between sew in installs I’ve been needing a way to style my hair. My roots just won’t let me be great and I don’t like to use a lot of heat. Luckily “It’s a Wig” came to my rescue and sent me this human hair wig called Eve in the color P1b/BG/350/144. Eve is a pre cut remi wig with some fly color located on the front and sides.
I apologize that I don’t have a shot of the back of the wig, but here is a picture from the site.
Alright so here’s my break down. Eve is a really nice cut wig. First, I will be honest. I was slightly intimidated by the color as I’ve never had a color that bright in my hair before. After putting it on and throwing on some makeup I felt fabulous! I enjoyed wearing it off an on during my break from my sew in. What I like most about it is that it gave me a different personality. I’ve been so used to rocking long straight or curly hair that I forgot how great I looked with a short crop cut!
Eve comes with one comb in the back and two straps for adjustment and tightening. My head is a tad smaller so I ended up having to put the straps the 4th or 5th hook just to get a snug fit. The bangs for this unit can be styled in many different ways. Instead of having it all coming to the front I did a small part.
I got mixed reviews from wearing this unit. All were basically positive, some skeptics and my friend Aprill from GlitterGlossGarbage.com told me that it made me look “Cougarish, like a cigarette smoking cougar you’d find in a casino”. Gotta love your real friends!
I am in love with Eve! My husband even likes the way it looks and questioned why I didn’t just go short again. Eve can be found at Itsawig.com.
What do you think of my new style protective style? Do I look like a cougar? Would you rock eve? Let me know in the comments.
