So you’re currently rocking a fierce fade or a punchy pixie but want to give this trend a spin? No need to worry. Wigs are your friend.

A favorite amongst vloggers is the ‘Jamie’ unit from My First Wig. You can @ForeverCryssy’s review on her YouTube page.


If you need a more budget friendly option, try out the Model Model ‘Dream’ wig. You can see @ifancycupcakes rocking it here.

The best part about wigs is that you can always cut them shorter and sharper to get the desired look. Be sure to have super sharp shears and a handheld razor on hand. If you need a little guidance, Tiarra Monet has a great tutorial on razoring her bob.
