Things are getting hairy

I’m 46 years old and trying to figure out how to give myself space buns.

Yes, space buns:

I bought a pack of fake hair from China years ago only to discover that the hair was WAY TOO BLONDE for me and just not thick enough to be effective.

So I went back online (FIRST MISTAKE) and I ordered two clips of 24 inch long curly hair.

I figured that would be good enough to give me some extra volume.

My SECOND MISTAKE was overestimating how much hair I would need.

The hair clips I bought LITERALLY LOOK LIKE big hairy tribbles sitting on my head.

I shit you not!

Now that I’ve had a chance to fuck up not once, but TWICE, I think I’ve figured out how to do it properly.

This design appeals to me and looks like there’s enough to create some volumized space buns, without looking too much like a cartoon character.

The problem is, it’s made with real human hair and I once saw a documentary on how women in India were tricked into shaving their heads to give their hair to a temple as an offering.

The temple turned around and sold the hair to human hair extension companies to clean up and process and quite honestly, I’m a bit skeeved out at the idea of wearing someone else’s hair.

Yes, you heard it here first.

I prefer synthetic hair.

So there you have it.

Lesson #1:  Don’t buy synthetic hair from China.

Lesson #2:  Don’t buy human hair from India.

So I’ve spent a great deal of time combing the internet (ha ha, pun totally intended) for synthetic hair pony tails.

This is what I found:

From Zala Hair Extensions.

Here is my BEFORE picture with no extensions:

We’ll see how my space buns look when my fake ponytails arrive in the mail.

Can’t wait!

Mermaid Hair, don’t care

I’ve been looking into hair extensions for Burning Man.

Reason #1:  I like really colorful things – just look at all the rainbows in my Burning Man closet!

Reason #2:  I like brightly colored hair.  It just looks awesome and edgy AF.

Reason #3:  I work in a place which would look down on me dyeing my hair pink or blue.  I mean they put up with my nose piercing but I’m not sure they’d survive my orange hair!

Since I know so little about hair extensions, I’m going to play around with some cheap ones until I figure out what I like and what works.

But just to inspire you, here are some INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL women with mermaid hair:

mermaid-hair3 mermaid-hair4

So I bought two kinds of hair extensions – a pretty lavender hair extension:

extensions-lavender

And a few brightly colored pieces:

extensions-colored

As far as the multicolored stands go, I’d like to combine the peach, lavender and salmon for a rosy look and the fuchsia, dark blue, and purple for a more “galactic look” (can anyone see me in my Galactic Pussy hat with this hair?):

galaxy-hair1

Yeah, galaxy hair is AWESOME!

Now, I just need to work on LIGHTING UP MY HAIR and then you can color me satisfied!

FYI, here is my Galactic Pussy hat:
