A few days ago I posted about the great sale at VogueWigs.com – and it’s still going on for a few more days (through May 26th). They are running a Buy 1, Get 1 50% off deal, and I purchased both the Elegance Monofilament Hairpiece by easihair (Pony Bun) as well as a mystery item. 😉 The deal was made even sweeter because I went to ebates.com first, searched for Voguewigs.com through there, and clicked through. Bam! Another 8.5% off! Buying hair is kind of addicting, so I try to save money wherever I can.
I got my order in three days! That’s amazing! I get to give you a sneak peek at the pony bun, which will give you a chance to decide if it’s something you want, too, since the sale is going on for a few more days.
I thought the pony bun would be great for the pool. I could put my own bio hair up in a high bun, and conceal the front of my head (where my hairloss is the worst) with a wide, stretchy headband.
Here is my bio hair just up. It looks a bit of a mess because I took my topper off and just combed it straight into a ponytail. If it was freshly washed it would look a little better…but let’s be honest, not by much. 🙂 My face here says it all: these tiny baby hairs coming back in (I’m recovering from my post-partum shed) are simply ridiculous.
Enter the pony bun. I got it in color 8, Cocoa Bean.
Nope, you didn’t miss something. That’s actually not a hamster, it IS the pony bun. Here is the inside of it:
It so much so looked like a bird’s nest that I couldn’t resist. Ok, let’s scrap the birds:
I think that pic is a bit fuzzy – sorry! I wasted all my time adding birds to the first photo of the inside, so now I have no time to re-take it; the kiddo only naps for so long. 🙂 But, I’m sure you can see that there is a drawstring at the base to help tighten it once it’s around your own bio-bun. There are also two combs in this piece, so you place it over your bio-bun, then wiggle the combs into your bio hair at the top and bottom.
I love the look of this! Here is a side-shot – trust me when I say that pony in the back is ALL pony bun.
And, the top view.
Finally, the finished result with the Elegance Monofilament Hairpiece by easihair. I LOVE it. I especially love it since it was only $17 (and then even less if you factor in my ebates discount!) It feels surprisingly secure, but you could always add a bobby pin or two to help keep it firmly in place. I think this will be a great option for the pool and beach this summer. Even though this was the first time trying a piece like this, it literally took me about 3 minutes to put my bio hair up, attach the pony bun, and throw on a headband. That’s how summer should be, nice and easy.
