Fall/Winter 2012 Hair Wishlist

I like to plan my hair purchases in advance.For the colder months, I like hair that is very low maintenance. I usually wear wavy hair so I do not have to curl my hair several times a week.I want naturally wavy hair that I can wear in its natural state and still love. All I want to do in the morning is wet my hair a little, apply hair serum and go.

I am still deciding between Peruvian Wavy hair since I have never tried Peruvian Hair or Mongolian Wavy Hair. I really like the quality of my Mongolian Kinky Curly and the color matched my own hair spot on so that is a huge plus for me.

There is a Youtube guru I subscribe to known as Fabulasityisme. I'm sure most of you know who she is. All her hair videos are amazing. Her tutorials are always very detailed and helpful. I love all her hair videos but there are two textures she recently wore that made my Fall/Winter wishlist. Both are wavy textures but one is Mongolian Hair and the other is Peruvian Hair.

 What hair is on your Fall/Winter wishlist?

DIY: Sew-in Invisible part wig & 3/4 Wig using Virgin Mongolian Kinky Curly Hair

 I was torn between making a invisible part wig or a 3/4 wig with my Virgin Mongolian Kinky Curly Hair.  So i decided to make a invisible part U-part wig first since I have never made one. I did not use any glue to make my wig not even around the invisible part. I made my wig using the Youtube video below:

I used combs on the inside of my wig to keep it secure.

After about 2 weeks of wearing the invisible part wig I got tired of the blending process, so i decided to make my wig into a full wig. I actually loosened my invisible wig to make my full wig from scratch. 
Full Wig: Front View
Full Wig: Back View
If I had to choose one, I would pick the full wig because it is lower maintenance. But of course the 3/4 wig looked more natural since I had a leave out. This hair is really soft and I love the color, it was a good match with my own hair.Kinky Curly hair is a must have, especially good quality kinky curly hair. Love it ! Love it ! Love it!
