I wore a blonde wig for a day, and here’s what happened/ Do blondes have more fun?
Story time. I wore a blonde wig for a day, and here’s what happened.
This is how it all started. Years ago I watch these guy on Youtube calling wigs and weaves hair hats. Lol
At first I was offended because I am an avid weave wearer, but after I thought about it for a while, I
realized he was right. Wigs are pretty much like a hair hat, which got me to thinking about how I can
change me wigs to match any outfit or mood I’m in for the day. What a brilliant idea!
Now a days, wearing a wig is no longer a trade secret and doesn’t have to be kept quiet by any means
necessary. With so many celebrities proudly rocking wigs, everyday woman are now expressing
themselves through elaborate hair styles and hair color jobs, while keeping their natural hair healthy
and intact. All by wearing wigs or hair weaves. We all want to stay camera ready for those infamous
selfies or random Instagram video, wigs are a great solution to keep that hair slayed while avoiding the
dreaded heat or color damage styling may cause on your hair.
While I have worn many wigs and weaves, I have always done so on the more conservative side of
things. No wild hair styles. No off the wall looks. And definitely no bright, vivid or crazy colors. I’ve
always opted for the more natural, plain and simple styles.
After getting pretty bored with my “good girl look”, I decide to do something totally out of the norm for
me and wear a blonde wig for a day.
Do blondes have more fun?
I really just wanted to see if I could pull it off, but most of all I
wanted to get the answer to the long time myth, “Do blondes really have more fun’?
Before selecting just any ol blonde wig, I did a ton of research to figure out what would be the best
shade and tone of blonde for my skin color. (Don’t judge me lol) I’ve never worn blonde hair before and I
wanted it to be perfect. Since my skin tone and color is similar to Beyoncé, I decided to use her as my
inspiration. I had my hair stylist do something that was bold, big, blonde and curly. (Especially since I
already love curly hair anyways) It just made sense!
Just to give you an idea of what the wig looked like, it was a very pretty loose deep curly/ wavy hair
texture. With dark brown roots and a mixture of honey blonde and platinum blonde high and low lights.
Once my stylist slipped the wig on me and did a little extra tweaking to make sure it looked as natural as
possible, you couldn’t tell me NOTHING!!! I felt likea brand new person. Hell, I felt Sasha Fierce in the
flesh baybaay!! I was so excited, I couldn’t wait to hit the city.
I Wore a Blonde Wig for A Day, and Here’s What Happened
Side note. I hadn’t told anyone about my extreme change. I wanted it to be a surprise. I had already
planned a girl’s night out with a few of my closest friends. Just to ensure no matter what the outcome of
my little experiment was, I would be forced to go out and see how people would react to me with
When I arrived to the bar, my friends barely recognized me. "You bleached your hair?! They all
screamed at what seemed to be in unison as if they were in a singing girl group. They loved it and so did I!
Do blondes have more fun?
I felt like a SUPER STAR!!! I got all kinds of looks and stares from peoples who admired my new look. I
even got us into a VIP section and the hook up on some free drinks for me and my girls. I had a blast
wearing my blonde wig for the day. And to answer the huge myth, Do blondes having more fun, the
answer is YES! I suggest you try it out at least once and see how people treat you and how you feel with
a different hair color. It was a very liberating experience for me and I will definitely be pulling my Sasha
Fierce wig out at least once or twice a week.
