Work is part of the reason I have wigs too.
Thank you for sharing this with us dear.
I’m happy to hear your input! I’ve never taken into consideration reasons people may not be able to dye their hair and how great wigs must be in those situations!
They’re just elements that help take coords to the next level like any other accessory. There are a lot of other Japanese street fashions that use these things as well. Gyaru isn’t at all a costume either but they love their circle lenses. There are people who dye their hair bright unnatural colors but that doesn’t make their clothes costumes. I don’t see much difference between that and someone who chooses to wear wigs rather than committing to the same color every day.
There are tutorials like this one on youtube that you can follow, but if you’re super nervous just wear it to your hair salon and say “I know this sounds weird but could you cut this for me?” Most of the time they’ll be perfectly fine with it and a lot of salons will cut just bangs free of charge.
No, that would be silly. If your wig is really good people won’t know it’s a wig right? They’ll think it’s your real hair. So to think using your real hair would be a bad thing doesn’t make a ton of sense.
When in doubt, a natural hair color will go with any style. Choose a natural hair color that suits you and you’ll generally have an easier time with colors it looks good with than you would with an unnatural hair color.
Well that particular wig is like that because it’s a cosplay wig and that’s what Luka’s hair looks like, but I know what you’re talking about. I actually have my hair cut like that and my reason is because I have bangs and when I have my hair pulled back those shorter pieces stay out and frame my face. It looks much more flattering than just having bangs there and nothing else, and when I have my hair down it nicely blends together with the rest of my hair and still frames my face.
I think it would be a perfectly fine beginner dress. It’s really cute and I think there’s a lot you could do with it. I would say it’s a bit of a combination of Classic and Sweet but it could work for Country if you chose to coordinate it in such a way. For a very simple coord you could do black socks or tights, pink shoes (or swap the colors of the socks and shoes), a pink or black bow or bonnet, and then for accessories you could do simple black wrist cuffs and rose jewelry. (I say black because black and blue are the only colors left in stock and I just picked black because it’s available in more sizes.)
I think a light brown wig would look fine with the dress, it’s a natural color and it’s not too often that you can go wrong with natural hair colors unless they just don’t suit you. Unfortunately I can’t say whether the hair color would suit you or not without actually seeing you as well as the wig color you’re looking at. I can’t imagine it would look bad, but something you can do to get an idea is go to a store that sells hair dye and has little swatches of the colors, find a color that looks similar to the wig you’re looking at, and see how you think it looks against your skin tone.
I just wouldn’t recommend buying much of anything from them because a huge number of the sellers on there are scammers using stolen photos. You would honestly be better off buying from some shops on ebay. I’ve bought a few things from Wig Supplier/L-email and I’ve never had any problems with them and they’re good prices (although wigs are the only thing I recommend buying from them.) Bodyline also has really good, well-priced wigs.
