The Kinky/Curly Wig

Photo from Coco & Creme

Recently Chrisette Michele switched up her look with a curly wig/weave. I personally love the look and it got me wondering — if you are a natural that uses wigs/weaves to transition or as a protective style do you find yourself gravitating towards curly/kinky wigs and sew-ins? Or do you still prefer the sleek look? Also, what are your thoughts on Chrisette’s new ‘do?

    Straight wigs don’t even appeal to me anymore. I don’t ever want to be dependent on wigs, but when I do buy them, they’ve got to be kinky/curly. I want my wigs to have a texture that’s similar to mine.

    When it comes to Chrisette’s wig, I like it, but it doesn’t matter if I like it or not. What matters most is that *she* likes it. Do your thing, Chrisette.

    This is the one I’m currently drooling over:

    Where can I get one of these kinky/curly wigs!? I’ve been searching all over and I haven’t found any! Please help! =)

  • Tracy

    Love the look! I live in Canada and find it hard to find wigs (especially)/weaves that really look like they could be my natural hair. Right now, I’m sporting a curly weave to give me a break & to change things up a bit. If anyone knows a website where I can get a kinky/curly wig (delivery to Canada is a must! lol) please let me know. Thanks.

    @Lady Swag – I love that wig!!! Where can I find it?

    I think Chrisette looks awesome. I love any kinky curly wig. Although I have just started wearing them since I have been natural. But they have to be similar to my own hair and not that bone straight look. If I want that I’ll just flat iron my own hair.

    20. I am really impressed along with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid topic or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent high quality writing, it’s uncommon to look a nice blog like this one nowadays..

    Since I’ve started my new journey, I’ve had nothing but textured weaves/braids. I just feel the sleek look is not me anymore. But I love the kinky/curly/crinkly etc. It’s just a better look.

  • Ask the marriage photographer what camera he uses and then look it up on line.
    In 2010, practically all wedding guests get their very own photographic camera that might generate
    properly-exposed photos at particularly minimal cost.
    You can’t decide this unless you meet them in person.
