Dreaming of Red

Recently, as some of you know, I've had a crazy obsession with red hair. Red is my favorite of all colors and I've been itching to dye it red. I've had pinkish streaks, dark burgundy hair, coppery hair, and deep red hair but never unnaturally red hair. The other problem is my hair is black right now and naturally dark brown. I also don't have the money to pay someone to lift my black out and put red in. To be honest I truly envy you blondes out there, since you don't have to bleach it to have pretty colors!

So after much pouting and searching online, I found a solution via Kaelah of Little Chief Honey Bee! She talks about how dearly she wanted light pink hair and knew her natural hair couldn't achieve such a color. So she turned to wigs! She's written some really interesting posts on hers, so I followed suit and found a beautiful dark red wig on Ebay.

I bought it from the seller Wigfashion. It was well priced and had good shipping.

So then I waited. Since my wig is from the other side of the world, I knew it would take a while. So I waited. And tried not to think about my new look. And tried not to wonder how it would look. And then, when I least expected it, my wig was home!



Isn't it absolutely lovely? I am so happy to report that it is super comfortable and once it's adjusted to where I want it, it looks pretty realistic. I can't wait to go out with it on! I am completely smitten. I would totally recommend this option for anyone who doesn't really want to, possibly, damage their hair.

I've also noticed I had to change my make up a little bit for the colors to look good. I filled my brows with a reddish brown instead of a black and put an orangey lipstick on that I hardly wear.

Would you ever buy a wig to change up your look?
Love and Turtledoves,


  1. Oh. My. God. That looks simply absolutely fabulous on you!

    Damn, I had that colour hair all summer, now I miss it SO much :'(
    I don't know if I'd buy a wig, but I'd definitely go red again in a heartbeat if i had the money!!!


  2. YOU LOOK AMAZING!!!! I love it. I seriously love it. I would consider a wig, mostly because I'm too impatient to let my hair grow out on it's own. Oh, my goodness, I can't get over your new look! It looks so awesome.

  3. You are so freaking cute. It looks amazing on you! I wish I were brave enough to try a wig...I think I want hot pink hair :)

    Can't wait to meet you in a few weeks! And I hope you have a beautiful weekend!


  4. Like I said, I am seriously IN LOVE with this look on you. You were born to have long, BRIGHT red hair. It changes your look completely and is just so much more you. Gosh, you just look so gorgeous!

  5. pretty! The color looks great with your features.

  6. Gorgeous color! If you ever wanted to dye your hair, you could use what kaelah and I both use. It's special dye for naturally dark hair. Anyway, I love your blog. You're super cute!


  7. Hi! I just stumbled upon your blog. I have been dying to have purple hair. Ive researched wigs and have been really reluctant to actually buy one. I want it to look as natural as possible. I may just give this one a shot!

    You're blog is awesome by the way. Immediate follow :D

  8. OMG I love it! I was having the same problem plus my mom was not going for bleaching my hair and bright blue hair. This may solve my problem! I already went and browsed the page and I am so in love!!!


I'd love to hear what you think!
