I'm a sucker for national days and I'm a huge fan of charitable causes, so to combine the two is perfect. #NationalBigWigDay is the last Friday in January and pairs with the American Cancer Society to raise funds. According to NationalDayCalendar.com, you can celebrate "by donning your biggest, wildest wig and having a party to raise funds to donate to the American Cancer Society Look Good/Feel Better division. The key is not to give big, but to get lots of people to give a dollar. You read that right. On National Big Wig Day™, the fun raising part is to see if 1 million people will give $1 each. By demonstrating that even a dollar can have a big impact, National Big Wig Day™ is out to show we ALL have a BIG WIG inside of us".
Since my donation has been submitted, all there is left to do is thrown on a wig and boast around the house. I've had quiet a few colorful/plastic hair looks so to get in the spirit of Big Wig Day, here are the stories behind the wig photo...
1. Lil Red
I got this beauty sent to me by a follower. Honestly, I was concerned that someone would want to send me a wig, but who am I to complain? I wore this wig in my Valentine's Day 2018 post. I had just finished a workout and didn't want to wash my hair so it was perfect. I like the curls and the length but it's between orange and red which makes it hard to match so 6/10 to Lil Red.
2. Hobo Johnson's Peach Scone
I bought this unit for Lollapalooza 2019 because Hobo Johnson was gonna be there. He had released the Ugly Kid music video a few weeks before Lolla. It featured a mannequin with this same wig....so lil ol' me needed to purchase it. Neither Frank nor the other band members noticed me but still 12/10 because of the memories made.
3. Baby Blue
I originally purchased this lil number for my 21st birthday. Unfortunately, I didn't wear it for that occasion. I did wear Baby Blue at Bonnaroo...all four days. I raved, danced, ate, and slept in this unit. IT WAS CRUSSSTY. Baby Blue caught some attention on the first day and I just kept the good vibes going. 100/10 for this one because I'm still friends with the people I met because of it and because it's the first in my ever-growing collection.
4. The Annoying Orange
Zero clue as to why I bought this one or where she came from. I'd say about 10 of my 18 wigs have that same story. Regardless, I love this unit the same. It's very hard to match and the bangs get wild but it's vibrant and bold which is why I adore it. The Annoying Orange doesn't have any combs sewn into it either which makes lots of movement kinda difficult. 6/10 for TAO because the bangs always irritate my eyes and I can't dance while wearing it .
I own 18 wigs total. I have natural wigs. I have colorful. I have very long, and short. I have the most plastic and fake and then I have lace fronts that could fool your average. #NationalBigWigDay is more than just a chance to get creative with your locks, it's a great event so raise money for the American Cancer Society. I hope if you've made it this far, please donate and also tag @americanblondeale in all your wig pictures!
