As it's HOT AF in NYC right now (especially underground), I've been pulling it up a lot. Now I can put it up with just one bobby pin or a sturdy straight pin. I bring it up into a mid-height ponytail slightly to my right then grab the end toward the base of the ponytail and take the loop that is made to the left as I twist it then use the pin against my head on the left to gather hair at the scalp then dip into the top of the twisted loop then push back on it in towards the scalp. It sticks very well and I can decide to tuck the ends in or let them curl out a bit as I twist.
So I watched a long youtube video about wigs (on 1.5x speed - that's my secret to not getting angry at longwinded vloggers) and got excited for when I have no hair again...but looking at these pictures....UGH I LOVE HAVING MY HAIR; I HAVE SUCH GREAT FREAKING HAIR. How will this go down in a year? a shave? another year of waiting? STAY TUNED!
