A Natural Hair Inspired Halloween

Happy Halloween, Everyone!!! The costumes are out, the vibe is spooky, and fall has finally arrived in Virginia!

That’s when I decided that actually wearing a hair piece would look more natural.  Wearing a curly-textured ponytail can provide the adequate blending needed, while simultaneously providing protection for your ends (and it’s perfect for the everyday professional). I purchased this ponytail for $8.99 at blackhairspray.com.  It is best worn with an incredibly high bun–practically a top knot.  I tried wearing it towards to back of my crown and it didn’t look natural at all because of the location of the drawstring.  If you purchase this piece, just remember: the higher, the better.
