#AlopeciaAwarenessMonth

September 8th, 2016 by Chassin

As part of #AlopeciaAwarenessMonth I thought I would give some of my thoughts on wigs. For me wearing wigs gives me back the control that Alopecia took away from me. I love being able to have the choice and that in itself gives me confidence as I am in control again. In general I try to focus my thoughts on the areas of my life I can control, rather than things outside of my control. I love hair and make up and love to get glammed up – I see it as a way to express myself rather than as a way to fit in with other people. For anybody with #alopecia I would say wear or don’t wear whatever you feel comfortable with and don’t be pressured either way by anyone. #AlopeciaAwarenessMonth ūüď∑ @chelseashoesmithphotos

Where to buy wig accessories

November 25th, 2008 by Chassin

¬†wilshirewigs.com for accessories:wig tape, styro-heads, wig blocks, table clamps…all those little things that make a big difference.

Their wig tape selection alone has over 30 separate items. Most every wig tape I’ve used is also perfect for keeping clothing straps and necklines in place, not to mention the emergency hem repair. So keep a few in your wallet. Just like all those folks walking the Red Carpet….you, too, can look absolutely put together when your moving parts are taped in place with yards of wig tape. It’s true…and it works.

Eyelashes ($2.75); Duo Surgical Adhesive ( 1.2 oz ) ($11.50); Styrofoam heads ($4); large packs of double stick wig tape ($3.75); storage box plus styro-head($12). Have a very tiny head? Buy their canvas wig block in a child size. Have a long-haired wig? Wilshire has the long-necked heads.

They also have a custom workroom with ventilators who will resize your wig or add more hair even if you did not purchase from them.
