The Hairpiece Hairstyle

I'm sure most everyone has seen these hairpieces around. My daughter refers to them as "fake hair" lol. Anyway, I've always thought of them as being a little weird and didn't really consider buying one. But, we ended up having to get one for her little dance group because they wanted everyone's hair to look the same. Well, I've been sold! Both The Princess and myself have been using it a lot since! (Luckily we have similar hair color.) It's just a quick, effortless way to do your hair!!

I love messy buns, but the longer her hair gets, the harder it is for me to make one. This is so much easier. And so fast on school mornings!

Just pull the hair into a ponytail and wrap it all up into a bun. The best part is, you don't even need to worry much about what it looks like. The hair piece will cover up any little pokies or mistakes. I just wrapped a clear elastic around the bun and left the ends out where they wanted to go. This literally took me less than a minute and no bobby pins were involved. :)

The hairpiece we got is from Sally Beauty Supply and is called the Revlon Ponytail Swirlz Hairpiece for $7.99. They also have one called The Twister, but the color we wanted wasn't available at the store we went to. I've seen these all over though, not just at Sally's.

There was one morning I had to be somewhere and didn't have time to blow dry and straighten my hair. So I put my hair into a quick bun (which normally would look ridiculous and make me look pretty much bald) then threw this hairpiece in and actually looked somewhat presentable! If you have a little girl with short hair, this would be an easy way to make it look longer and fuller in lots of different hairstyles.

Here she is with her bun on the side and the hairpiece put in....
