I’ve been wearing a wig now for over 2 months…(not everyday might I add). Why you may ask – I can’t believe I didn’t think of it before now…a ready to wear wig is actually my new must have. I now look at a wig as an investment piece, just like my designer handbags and shoes. Do you know how much time and energy my new wig has saved me? I’m going to tell you my wig story from the start….
A few months ago I was in Bellissimo Hair Health & Beauty, Galway and discovered they had a private fitting room dedicated to wigs. Wigs at Bellissimo is established as one of Ireland’s leading Wig Specialists in the alternative hair industry. Their service benefits a vast number of necessity wearers however they also cater for the fashion conscious wearers who mainly opt for ready to wear wigs.
This is the Wig I fell in love with instantly… from Wigs at Bellissimo
Out of curiosity I tried on a wig very similar to my own hair colour and style…I was instantly hooked…I wanted to keep it and have it to hand for occasions when I just didn’t have the time to pop to the hairdresser for a wash and blow-dry or the energy to put in my sleep in rollers the night before an event. You may think I’m crazy but I now own the wig and I would not give it back for love nor money.
Over the past few months I have had many opportunities to wear my new wig and I can say with confidence that it is the best investment piece I now own. Honestly, not a word of a lie, unless I tell people they would not know I was wearing a wig. I wear it to business meetings, social occasions, the odd school run (if I’m on my way from a meeting) and even on nights out (In fact I wore it out partying in Amsterdam for my sister’s 30th). The main questions I’m asked is – does it itch and is it secure. The trick is to wear a cap underneath the wig and this prevents the wig from slipping and also avoids any itches. I’m so used of the wig now that I actually forget I’m wearing it.
Do blonde’s have more fun?
Well I got to experience being a blonde first hand as I rocked up to The Irish Fashion Innovation Awards wearing a beautiful blonde bob wig from Wigs at Bellissimo. I really loved having the opportunity to go blonde for a night and would definitely recommend trying it out The hubbie loved it too 😉
Wigs at Bellissimo is located in the Galway Retail Park on the Headford Road and are the only company in Ireland providing such a comprehensive selection of ready to wear headpieces, ordered through a unique network of specialists throughout Ireland. Bellissimo has a private fitting room where your consultation will be dealt with discreetly and professionally. Bellissimo is also an approved supplier by the HSE & Private Health Insurance to provide support to the necessity wearer.
Right now I’m saving for my next wig… I haven’t decided yet but with so many to choose from my options are endless…I really like these two though. When it comes to price it varies but the one I got was €350. The great thing about it is its made from synthetic hair therefore its easy to maintain and once you wash it just leave it to dry and it styles naturally. Wigs made from real hair are also available from Wigs at Bellissimo but prices start higher with more maintenance required as if it was your own hair.
