Me? A blond?

I finally coloured my faded brown hair to my previous favourite. I couldn't stand seeing the black roots anymore and how awful it made me look on photos. I looked so - unkempt and tired. One thing I can't stand, looking unkempt, I still cringe remembering how I looked like in 2008. The hair! OMG the hair and the make up. It haunts me to this day.



I'm so loving the hair colour again. Gonna stock up on it while it's still on offer. So anyway besides hair dying, what other way to have nice looking hair for photo shoots?

Easy, but a wig.

Then again, I've been looking for a blond wig for about a gazillion and one years. Finally a couple of weeks ago, I found a seller selling hers.

Oh la la, a long and a short? Took me a couple of days to decide if I should get it, another couple of days on whether to get the long or short, a couple of days to decide if I really needed it (the answer is of course - no) by that time, the seller has lowered her price ... AHAHA! Lucky!

JH said it won't fit me. Of course it won't! I'm Asian, we're already yellow and can do without the yellow hair and seriously, how many of us can really successfully pull off as a blond without looking like an "Ah Lian" ?

Then again, I do know a couple of people who look good as a blond, the Singaporean blogger, XiaXue is one. Even Elisa said blond won't be able to fit me but I ought to get it just for fun. Well fun here cost me a hole in the pocket that is until JH offered to buy it for me [insert: Awwwwwwww..]


It came!!!!

Waited for about three days and finally it reached my doorsteps. Woo hoo, rushed to my room to tear open the box to reveal two bunch of pale blond wigs.

Two weird looking bunch of...something; One strand of black hair to ruin the entire shot. I need to learn photoshop damnnit!

Of course, me being me, lazy and all, I didn't bother wearing the hair net. With a blond wig, we really need a hair net cause my black hair was poking out from everywhere. The weather was hot and I was literally sweating and melting. I re-touched up my melting make up, put on falsies and took a few test shots.


Uhhh..; When in doubt, wear a hat

It's so bloody hard to look good with a blond wig! Oooo, how I absolutely envy natural blonds. The blond wig makes me look like a baked lobster! After a few twirl and whirl, I grew bored and started looking for a hat. I love love hats. Put on the hat and hated whatever I was wearing, so got the scarf to cover it.


The short and the long

Apologies for the blurry long wig shot, had a better shot but it was showing too much of my black hair and by this time, it was too freaking hot to wear the wig any longer.

I suddenly wanna do a ganguro look again, oh noes! >.<

Well you're light like XiaXue so the blond definitely works! I love it with the hat. Too cute *^_^*

the wig looks super cute :D i wanna wear a platinum blonde wig now!! haha xD it looks really anime-ish on you. I think really light hair tends to look fab on paler asians, if your tan it might give off a tila tequilla kinda image though..
