Try A New Look with Some Hair You Wear: Visible Monday

vismondayheader

 
Do you ever play with your hairstyle? One of the easiest way to change up your look, painlessly and without commitment, is with hair you wear: extension, bangs, braids, or a full-on wig like I’m wearing here today.

Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Please be kind and leave a link to Not Dead Yet Style in your post.

The outfit is pretty simple – loose-cut black trousers by AllSaints (thrifted, similar) and a sheer floral top (sim) over a black camisole. I broke out my blue suede sandals (sim) for the first time this year; they are at least six years old.

I own several wigs, and this is a new one by Gabor (like this one, in Sugared Smoke). I wanted to experiment with the all-silver look, and I do like it. I think I’ll always prefer my curls, but who among us hasn’t wanted to change our hairstyle from time to time? I am currently on the hunt for silver curly hair extensions that clip in – these are hard to find so if you’re in the know, drop me a line.

  1. I agree wigs can be fun. I had a wig that I loved which was red when I was blond and it is probably the main reason I decided to take the plunge to go red.

    Although I love the sleekness of this on you I must say I’m partial to your curls. Probably because I don’t have them : )

  2. I find wigs terribly itchy and hot, so I never wear one. I am surprised you wear one in that hot Florida weather. Especially because you have such beautiful hair yourself.
    As for extensions and such.. Nah.. not in my thin hair.

  3. Funny, I’ve been thinking about getting a few of those clip-in extensions in bright colors to go in my hair lately. I’ve got a can of spray-in wash out hair paint sitting on may dresser as we speak, but haven’t tried it yet. I guess great minds think alike! This is a really cute style on you!

  4. I’ve never tried a wig or hair extension, but I think it’s cool that you experiment with your hairstyle, Patti! I notice that some models do it too, it’s a quick and unexpected way to change a look dramatically! I like your bright red top, and the way it matches your groovy Florida cat. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for the link-up!

  5. that hairstyle is a fabulous look on you (although I miss the curls). the one thing about us that the easiest to change is our hair and you’ve tapped into a whole other world of options with wigs and extensions. you’ll notice that I too have tried a new do (and more changes are coming). thank you for sharing this styling inspiration and for hosting.

  6. Your hair is somewhere between Laura Dern and Val/ Muse Fondue. Cute!
    I got a wig pre-cancer treatments (as one does) and got a brunette 20’s bob-like style. Man, that thing was hot and itchy. Good for costume parties though. Hmmmm, I wonder where I put that…
    Thanks for hosting!

  7. I have a couple of wigs too, Patti!! And I love them. It’s my husband who’s not as enthralled—so I’ve gotten out of the habit!
    But they are so easy…and look so good. That’s why I kept wearing mine!
    And if you find those extensions–let me know too, kay?

  8. That wig looks fantastic. I wouldn’t have recognized you at a glance without your curls. I agree – it’s fun to mix it up. I have a few really bold pink and blue ones too. I’d like a few for everyday style as well. Great post. If I see something clip-in, I’ll let you know. Thanks for the link-up!!

    • too hot for a full Florida day outdoors – but great for going out to dinner or a movie, or a bit of shopping. xo

  9. I’ve thought about a wig once in a while. My daughter has a couple and loves them. I was going to get one a couple of years ago when I was considering letting my hair go natural. Well, I just did it and never got the wig and fortunately, I am pretty happy with the results. But, will have to admit, I will still like to have at least one wig….someday….

  10. I love the idea of trying new hair via a wig. I always wanted to have red hair for a week and see what it is like! I’ve just never seen a wig that looked convincing on me, but I’ll keep looking! Yours looks fab; love you in red too. xx
