Lace wig wahala!!!



Ladies this one is for you! Guys, trust me you won't regret reading it either.

Truth is, there might be a season for a certain fashion item, but it doesn't mean that it is for everybody.


Reminds me of the great comeback of skinny jeans. Oh my! I saw this very full figure on some skinny jeans and I almost gave out all the ones I had. Matter of fact, didn't she realize it was called skinny jeans? I'm not saying you can't wear skinny jeans if you're not skinny, but it just gives you a hint to be more careful, and be very sure that it flatters your figure.

This is exactly what is going on with this lace wig trend now.
Pleaseeeee if your face is very round, just stay away from lace wigs. I don't even know how to drum this one into the ears of  some Nigerian ladies. That it is expensive doesn't make it the best look for you. This lace wig thing did not start today so what's up with the whole hype? It's been there, a lot of celebrities have been wearing it for a while now but I sure know everything that gets to "Naija babes" must be abused. Some celebs have just not bothered not because they can't afford it, but because they know it won't help their face. Anyway for those that won't hear, here's an example:


Tragic Brandy, Tragic!!!

Gosh I just saw my friend's wedding picture, and to tell you the truth, it's anger that made me put up this post. Do you know ugly??? People are supposed to look their best on their wedding day but apparently, my friend equated "best" with "expensive".  She is very pretty on a normal day but I don't even understand how she let somebody mess her up like that. You're supposed to already know what hairstyle fits you best before your wedding day. Whether na N1 or 1 million, please wear that.

I wish I could show you the pics but anyway I'll just try to describe it.
Hairline almost hiding the forehead (this is supposed to be some kind of disorder but I don't know how girls are so happy with it these days), heavy blushers, smoky eyes, red lips. It's so obvious that the heavy makeup and hair did her no justice. I wonder what she'd do when she looks at her wedding pictures years after the lace wig is gone and forgotten, and then she remembers that there were so many other hair styles that she could have opted for if she wasn't on her little mission of trying to impress people with her very expensive look.

At the end of the day, what is more important is that you are a pretty bride and not that you're an expensive one duh!
Sometimes I feel like I'll just wear my regular makeup that I'm used to, before someone will turn me into an expensive looking baboon...Hehehe people, I'm not getting married tomorrow o, before some peeps will come here and do "hint hint someone is getting married" :)


Message of the day: Please if it doesn't fit, then you don't need it.

Damn! Don't I just hate things that are in vogue? Well I don't even understand why, but I just know that sometimes when everybody is trying a certain thing, I just learn to abstain from it.

  1. Naija babes are going crazy with lace wigs- and most of them get it sooo wrong. I'm not going to follow this trend anyway cause i'm certainly not spending all that on my hair! O_o

  2. LMAO.
    First time on your blog and to this post I raise my glass and say here, here.
    I hate to generalize people but I do find that with Nigerian women when something is in vogue they all have to have it. I just find that their fond of copying (btw I'm nigerian myself although I was born and raised in the UK).
    Never been a fan of lace wigs since I first set my eyes on one and I so agree with you about brides looking like themselves (but a groomed version) on their wedding day and not like somebody else.

  6. Thanks for the informative post. I've been suffering from hairloss for very long period and have been using wigs ever since to make myself feel self confident and yes it was a bit uncomfortable in the starting but now I'm addicted and comfortable with the wigs. I've always preferred to get my wigs from this one store of Elevate styles and I really loved your article and enjoyed reading your blog.
