Trying Natural Hair Extensions for the First Time

We were goofing off with our sister's natural hair extensions when she walked in on us. After the speech of how she paid good money for them, she spent the next couple of hours showing us how to put them in. We talked and laughed. It was like playing dress up like we used to do when we were younger. Our older sister always has nice looking hair, and we knew she used hair extensions. We did not think they would look good on us until she put them in for us and styled our hair.

We looked really good. Our hair was longer and fuller than it ever had been. None of us are able to grow really long hair. It just kind of poofs out no matter how much we try to straighten it. My hair was shorter than my middle sister but a little straighter. We both looked good in my sister's hair extensions. There was a slight color difference from our natural hair, but it just looked like we highlighted it. I wondered how good it would look if I had my own natural hair extensions in the color of my own hair.

I was looking at the cell phone pics from our hair dressing session using hair extensions. I liked it so much that I bought some of my own online at a website that offers natural hair extensions. When they arrived, I had my sister help me put them in. I still did not have the technique go as smooth as how she does it on her own head. She told me I would learn with practice. I went out that day with my extensions in, and my friends went nuts over how good it looked. I liked the look a whole lot. I cannot grow my hair long and straight like this, but my hair extensions make it easy.

Cosplay: Costuming As Superheros for Adults

Hair comes in all types. A curly weave. An oily sheen. A kinky curl. A silky straight. A wavy flow. There are all types of hair out there with varying degrees of curl, straightness and kinks. It's because of this diversity of hair types that an categorization methodology was developed to help consumers choose the type of conditioners and shampoos that would be perfect for their hair. Of course, this also helps those who make wigs out of actual human hair. You might be amazed to discover that there is a whole industry out there devoted to the harvesting and shaping of human hair - I know I was!

It's not a great surprise when you consider the rise in popularity of Cosplaying. Cosplaying is basically an excuse to continue playing dress up. Who doesn't love dressing up? Even as adults we indulge in such a thing during Halloween still. We love making excuses to costume ourselves up and why not? It's great fun to dress up as our favorite characters from comics, books, games and shows. I love how our childhood comics have come to life on the big screen which gives us the perfect reasoning to dress up as Superman or Wonder Woman just like we did when we were all of seven years old.

Real human hair makes for great wigs for this sort of thing if you want to go all out. Professional cosplayers make some of the most amazing costumes. You may not know this but cosplaying is actually very competitive. The best cosplay models are actually able to score sponsorship of a sort -- usually from magazines or even game publishers. They're paid quite a bit to appear at conventions - cons they're called - such as Blizzard Con or even the likes of Comic Con.
