While surfing the web last week I came across a blogger named Leslie.  She posted photos of herself pre and post Paula Young wig and I absolutely loved it! I reached out to Leslie and asked her if she would be interested in writing a post for our readers and she enthusiastically said yes.

Here is what Leslie had to say:

Hello people,

Recently I had an opportunity to shop the wig site Paula Young.  This is a great place to shop if you want to change your hairstyle or length instantly!  If you happen to live with alopecia or have had hair loss from cancer, this is a wonderful place to look for wigs or even hair extensions.

As the followers on my blog know, I have metastatic breast cancer.  This means that I have long term chemo in my future.  I have completely lost my hair as well as my eyelashes and some of my eyebrows.  There is nothing that makes a woman feel quite as self-conscious as being hairless.  So, of course I have a wig. Actually I have two, one of my wigs synthetic and one that is human hair and synthetic blend.  I like them both, but the blend is more real feeling to me.

The thing about wig shopping is that it is difficult to match how your hair looked before treatment.  The very cool thing about Paula Young wigs, as compared to other sites, is that it has so many options to choose from.  There are many different lengths, colors, styles and types.  You could choose synthetic, a blend of human hair and synthetic or even shell out a little more and get a human hair wig.  There are also different price points and they have terrific sales!  So if you wanted to have more than one wig to change your look or style, you can totally afford it here.

In addition to all the wig options there are accessories.  You will need and want a wig stand.  There are a couple stands to choose from.  There is the wire stand, which I use for the wigs I have currently and there is the styling stand.  I wish I had gotten that instead because it seems more solid for wig placement and styling than the wire one.  The wire one that I have from the wig shop my insurance sent me to, falls over and moves around.  You live and learn, right?

I never saw myself as someone who would have to shop for a wig. But here I am. Now I am trying to make the best of it by having a few wig options to choose from. If you find yourself in this situation, I would really recommend this site for a couple of reason.  One reason is that it came highly recommended by my cancer treatment center. Another reason is that in all my searches, I kept coming back to Paula Young to look around.  I guess I was drawn to the site.

If you get a wig from here, send in a photo or email and let me know what you think of it!!

    I have been wearing Paulas wigs for 40years, I am beginning to notice that the wigs are getting sparce, in particular Dance and Angel in the back. When brushed up for the spike look you can see the mesh and the tape hair is attached to. You cannot hide the fact u are wearing a wig.
    Also there are actually no discount coupons offered. When free shipping is offered than the wigs go up, etc. As a long time customer and I am sure there are many people who feel like I do, there should be somekind of certificate given in appreciation. not a happy camper.
