The joy of wearing a wig

By now you must be wondering how I have short hair in one picture and long hair in the next. Being married I'm obligated to always have my hair covered when I'm out in public so I wear a 'sheitel' (the Yiddish word for wig). I used to think that it's odd to wear wigs of different lengths and that it would be confusing for people, but I recently decided that I may as well make the most of wearing a wig and to have fun with it!

Genuine human hair wigs are quite pricey but you don't want a wig that looks like a wig either so I prefer saving up till I could afford a quality wig and look great every day! (there's nothing worse than a bad hair day) It makes all the difference! 

So I had this old wig which was past its sell by date (usually three years) that was just sitting in my cupboard and I decided to give it a new fresh look for the Summer.

I was so excited to find a hairdresser in Cape Town who had experience in the UK working with wigs and I'm loving the new shorter look!

If you are living in Cape Town and need your wig or your hair cut, I recommend making an appointment with Kelly at Scar on Kloof Street. You won't be disappointed! 

I also have friends in Joburg who I would be glad to recommend -so if you want to buy a wig or have one highlighted or cut in Joburg, feel free to leave a comment and I will give you their details.
