    Brad keeps saying “no one has hair that long”....me sitting over here with hair past my butt cut straight across. 🤨🤨🤔🤔
    Yes there are a lot of pieces of different lengths...but the majority of it is that long and thick. As in it takes 45 min to blow dry. 😂😂 (In my photo my hair was pulled back tight and partially wet as I had been to the gym) I have a LOT of hair but a lot of the hairs themselves aren’t super thick. So it can be worn really flat when wet or with oil OR tons of volume. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    The million dollar question I have and want to know so badly is...why do all hairdressers cut long hair to be short? I mean not everyone looks good with short hair😕 people wear extensions and wigs cause they want long hair, what would be the point in cutting the length?

    I started reading the comments before I finished the video, and I was expecting to see something bad, like the comments are suggesting. But I think it looks really good and super cute. The beach waves are subtle, the roots definitely make a difference, and the framing of the hair makes the wig more suitable. Long story short, I like it 😊✨

    I don’t understand why you don’t invest in a floor stand for your wigs. That way we can see the transformation in full length and I’m guessing it will be more like you’re working on a real person sitting in your chair so it will most likely be easier for you to work as well?

  • Logicdiary317

    Can we talk about baby hairs for a moment? Like... the real ones... that come out of your scalp. Anyone know how to make them grow out? I cut bangs in 2011 and I have short hairs that never grew out from that time even still. I hate how they look like devil horns when my hair is pulled back in a ponytail.
    Then brad is over here putting those little monsters on that wig? Why would anyone want those when naturally, they can be so annoying. It's the hair that can defy gravity and stand up straight, super frustrating and not even headbands can tame them. At least, in my experience. I have really fine, thin, long hair that's now passed my bra straps in the back. It's not a good look to have all those fly away hairs around my face. Any suggestions from you lovely people?

    Ok for everyone who’s all “my hair is too that thick....my hair, my hair, my hair” and everyone saying “so you’re calling me no one!?!? Waaaahh”: first of all, stop taking extremely generalized comments personally- it’s not all about YOU. Second, what he MEANS is....in order to have lavender hair you either need to have naturally very very blonde hair OR you must first get the shit bleached outta your hair, then you must dye it and tone it. Not to mention the upkeep of re-bleaching and re-dying periodically to cover the grow-out. All of this bleaching = damage = breakage = no more naturally thick, long hair for long. I don’t care how thick your natural hair is and how long you can get it, once you start fucking around with it and adding chemicals, especially bleach, you will now no longer have this luscious thick, long hair! You might be able to keep it long if you’re lucky, but definitely with some breaking and thinning at the ends or vice versa. SOOO....think about all the possibilities he may be saying what he is instead of automatically taking some obscure statement and letting it ruin your life. I really doubt he meant ANY actual racism or bitchiness when he said those things. Or maybe he just actually knows all of you, what kind of hair you have, and what you individually take offense to and said it anyway? No likely...

    Lord Jesus he needs help 😂 just because the wig is synthetic, it doesn't mean you can't pluck the part 💯 Also if you wanted curls, what I grew going is putting the hair in perm rods or flexi rods, put the hair in boiling water for about 30 seconds. Let it air dry and then take them out.

    will you get a good wig for 21(US) dollars?
    edit: also i cant tell if this wig that i want is synthetic or not? this is the wig i'm talking about:
    www.dhgate.com/product/dark-roots-ombre-grey-synthetic-lace-front/446050952.html#s1-4-1b;srp|26192502403
    also the reason i was asking if i would get a good wig for 21 dollars is because the link that i gave is 21 dollars
    edit 3: the wig after styling is flatter than my chest( and i'm 9 years old)

    I don’t think he knew that once you straighten or brush out synthetic wig set curls you can’t get them back unless you wrap them around a flex tie and either steam them (yes with the thing you steam your clothes with), or dip them in boiling water while they are twisted around a curler. Lol I can tell he was like “um ok” on his face when he saw that it wasn’t curling well at all lolll
