…Is getting your new fake hair in the mail!
It’s two feet of fake hair that’s detergent-washable. HOW IS THAT NOT FUN?!?
It’s hard to tell what colour it is in the photo because of the lighting, but almost 6 months ago I started dying my hair red (dark auburn, really). I’m a naturally dark brunette. Having red hair is something I’d wanted to do my whole life, but only finally made it a reality this year.
Of course, what that means for reenacting is that I needed new hair pieces. I have a long swatch like this that matches my natural colour, as well as 1880s-style curly bangs (some day I’ll talk about 1880s hairstyles. They’re bizarre.) I’ve been soldiering since the 2013 reenacting season started, but I have a 2nd Boer War event coming up and I needed fake hair to mach my new colour, stat. So excited.
