    Default Talk to me about falls...

    I'm contemplating a hair fall, so I can have that beautiful waist length hair I've always wanted (for performing). Any wisdom/advice?

    I wore a wig and a fall at different times of my life. Learning to pin them down is essential but they can be fun. I don't know what is available now, but I'd suggest what used to be called a cupcake fall which is sort of like a half wig. More secure, looks more natural. Pictures are requested once your Rapunzel transformation takes place.

    Do you have pictures? I can Google - but would rather have someone in the know point me...

    I've only worn a "wiglet" in an updo a couple of times.

    I don't have photos but I looked it up and apparently what I knew as a cupcake fall is now called a half wig. Here is a site with a photo. It is a hair piece with a half-cap that fits over the back top of your head and leaves your own hair exposed at the front. This differs from a fall where the hair is attached to something like a comb that is attached to the top of your head, allowing the hair to fall around your skull from this small base.

    Wigs are hot. Half wigs are hot. Falls fall off.

    Fake hair ain't for sissies.

    Have you considered extensions, or those clip in ones if you don't want them all the time? One of the reasons I won't wear a wig is my hatred of a hot head and obviously they don't operate like real hair when you move, because they're sitting on top of your real hair. With extensions you've got your own hair, plus the extra length and volume.

    A fall is a single clump of hair that attaches to one's head, usually at the crown. Hair extensions are individual strands that clip to one's existing hair in multiple places.
