Sometimes good quality hair weaves could cost you a lot of Money. But are they worth the Price you paid?
Before this discussion, I should make a self confession: My name is Mariah, and in my past 31 years, I might have spent thousands of dollars on weave and maintaining products. Don’t judge me. I’m not spending even half as much as other black women I know.
Now let’s start with my own story. About six years ago, when I saw celebrities keeping wearing wigs or weaves on the red carpet all the time, I decided to have a try. It was my birthday and I wanted to feel like a star for one day. I overlooked the fact that a celebrity stylist was most likely the only true way to that end. I found the most popular human hair and stylists around. I asked a few hair divas which brands they may advise, and why they love that brands. I pretended not very surprised by the expensive prices of the hair bundles I bought. Then, fast through $800 and six long hours at the hair salon. When the stylist spun my chair around and handed me a mirror so I could give my new looks a good 360 degree assessment, the first thing that came to mind was, this is $800 worth of nice?!
I didn’t mean there is anything wrong with the hair stylist or the hair because the final look is SO PERFECT and I was totally satisfied with it. The truth is that a woman spent half her rent on a hairstyle and she’s most like stuck with for at least 3 months. I didn’t feel the amazing feelings that were exchanged with that much money. From then on, I vowed to not ever try to buy what only a top-notch, celebrity stylist can create.Some of you may have enough natural hair skills to pull it off, but back then I accepted rather quickly that I am just not as talented in that department as you. I’m cool with it. And, guess what? I haven’t allowed myself to have hair weavesticker-shock since, which always makes the big reveal at the hair salon actually fun again.
What’s the most you have ever paid or ever would pay for the weave of your dreams? Do you have rules on how much you’re willing to pay for a hairstyle? Would love to hear your hair weave sticker shock horror stories too.
