The Birth of Lady D...

I have been peppered with questions about my "Hair of Great Enormity." How did I do it? What is it? Is it my hair? And so on and so forth. So, without further adeu, here is how "Lady D," as the hair was named by Tara, came into being.


I have been experementing for months with the "perfect Georgian hair" and how to get it. I have searched up and down the internet as well as played with my own hair to see what I can come up with. All of my previous attempts have been ok, but not spectacular or big enough. I came across Vivien's tutorial, from Vivcore, and decided to dive in a try it.


Wow! I had no idea the piece would turn out so fabulous. I used 2 1/2 real hair wefts, that I bought at Sally's Beauty Supply, buckram for the frame, batting, extension clips, spray paint, and a whole lot of glue. It took me about 10 hours to complete, which wasn't bad at all. I highly recommed making one, it only took me 10 minutes to style my hair after curling it over night.


So, to answer the which hair is which question. The majority of the poof is just that, a poof. The only hair that belongs to me is the hair in the front and the tail in the back. Now it is all real hair, just not my own. I hope that answers everyone's question :-) God Bless! Love Lauren...

I'm going to have to try Viv's tutorial now, too. It looked like a lot of work, but the result is fantastic, and it seems a whole lot easier to wear than a full wig. The only problem is that I don't have any hair to pull up in the front...

I have seen that tutorial also but have held back from trying. I will definitely have to give it a go. Looks fabulous!!

Wow, that sounds like a lot of work but you definitely look wonderful and I would never have guessed that wasn't all your own hair!
