A huge misconception about dark skinned, melanated women is that we cannot pull off blonde, especially platinum blonde. I never like to run from a challenge and I love playing with different hair colors so… I decided to go blonde! Instead of dyeing my natural hair, I went to my local beauty supply store and bought a wig. Yes, a local beauty supply store! The wig was made of 100% human hair and costs less than $100.
If I’m not rocking my natural hair or a sew-in, I’m usually wearing a wig. They’re super convenient! The tricky part about wearing wigs is learning how to customize your lace to make it look as natural as possible. I’m an avid Youtuber and subscribe to numerous vloggers like Malibu Dollface, Freedom Couture Hair, and Ivy Dear to learn tips and tricks to get my hair as laiiiiddddd as possible.
Basically if you want to dye your hair, go for it! Don’t let a stupid stereotype scare you from trying something new. If you need any help customizing your wig to perfection, feel free to leave a comment below or check out some of the Youtubers I listed above. Slay on my friends 😉
