So anyway - onto the hair!
A few weeks ago I was approached by the lovely Lorna about making a hair piece for me. Now, people who know me will tell you I hate being fussy with my hair. If my fringe is too long I cut it off, I can't stand it being tied back.... So, although I was excited about a new challenge I was a little dubious as to how it would turn out. She came to my flat in London to measure my head and get all the things she needed to make me a hair piece, as well as have a bit of a catch up and a gossip!
I didn't know much about Lorna's business side, we usually meet up on a night out over a glass or two of fizz, but I was interested to learn that she has been working in the wig making industry for over 7 years and that she has worked on film, TV and theatre. She makes wigs for all sorts of people, all hair types and has many solutions for hair loss - amazing! You can read more about all of that here!
And then, two weeks later I get a text to say my new hair piece is ready and would I like to go along and have some photos taken wearing it... Now, as you might know I am quite shy (ha!) and so I jumped at the chance. I managed to get it arranged for a Saturday morning so that I could be cheeky and have amazing hair and make up for my leaving do on the Saturday night and what a good plan that turned out to be!
I turned up at Lorna's studio and she immediately set to work with her magic make up brushes... to say I was happy with the make up she did is an understatement I loved it! Then she fitted the hair piece, the bit I was most nervous about. As some one who hates having even a hair clip in my hair I didn't know how much I would like it. In the end I didn't even really realise it was fitted because you just don't feel it at all. It has 4 small clips which clip into my hair but that's it.
I don't know the technicalities of the wig making (ask Lorna, she's a pro) but I do know that it is a real human hair top piece and it gave me hair that I could only have dreamt about before!
I was lucky enough to be gifted the hair piece (thank you Lorna!) but please don't think that this review is swayed by that, because it isn't. I honestly might not have been able to afford a hair piece like this before, but it really has made me think twice... it's SUCH a transformation and
I really can't put into words how much I like it!!
What do you think?
