Why Do I Look Like Joe Dirt?!?
Ladies, when it comes to cutting your hair pieces it is not, I repeat NOT a Walk-in’s Welcome kind of situation! It is not the time to pull out your scissors after having a couple glasses of wine on a Saturday night. Please do not give it what I like to call an “emotional haircut” after a rough day. Do not let one of your best girlfriends convince you she can do it for you if you will just put it on.
What is a girl to do you ask? You need to do your research and find a stylist who has experience when it comes to cutting and styling wigs and hair pieces. Just because someone is a licensed Cosmetologist does not mean they are qualified to cut a hair piece. This is not something they teach you in Cosmetology School. Finda stylist you are comfortable with and treat it just as if it were the hairgrowing out of your own head. Keep in mind with helper hair it will not grow back so the margin for error is pretty slim.
There are fabulous wig salons who specialize in cutting, coloring, and maintaining your helper hair. They have stylists you can sit down with just like a regular salon. Each chair and stylist are often in a small private room so you can feel comfortable discussing your needs, removing your hairpiece, or trying hair pieces on. They typically sell many different types of hair and accessories and have all the helper hair knowledge a girl could need.
Once you are established with them you can drop off or mail your hair piece in. Yes, you heard that correctly, you can swing by and drop your hair off just like your dry cleaning! It is one of the many benefits to helper hair. Schedule your time, drop it off and they will let you know when your hair is ready. It will be washed, styled, and fit for a queen. I would make sure you call ahead and check what the lead time will be if you are planning to wear your helper hair to a special event or occasion. A girl doesnot want to show up without her locks.
If one thing has always been true, you look your best when you feel your best. And you will not achieve that with some questionable quick haircut situation. You are beautiful and deserve to feel confident when it comes to the hair on your headwhether it be bio hair or helper hair. These hair pieces are your investmentsladies, protect your investment like it is your baby or you may just end uplooking like Joe Dirt!
Cheers to Hair!
