Goodwill Gems: Total Rock Star Flair Hair

Are you ready to rock? Halloween’s the perfect time to let your inner Billy Idol out. Don’t believe us? Check out our correspondent Lauren’s most recent (and most awesome) local Goodwill find, this week’s Goodwill Gem: Total Rock Star Flair Hair.

An over-the-top wig, like those pictured here, is one of the easiest ways to instantly turn any old look into out-of-this-world Halloween fun.

This Halloween, don’t be afraid to get a bit crazy. After all, isn’t the whole point of dressing up to take on an entirely new persona? Someone you would never, ever be in real life?

In my real, everyday life, I’d consider a good haircut to be one of a girl’s best accessories. But this week’s find – a fantastically outrageous wig – made me reconsider that assumption (for one night out of the year, at least).

If you’re looking to get away from your normal, natural self, but still don’t want to get too wild or uncomfortable, a wig like the one on the right is perfect for you. It’s a hairstyle you might see any old day while walking down the street, but unless it’s already your own color and style, it’s probably different enough to allow you to adopt a totally new persona while wearing it. The wig pictured on the left, however, is a little less tame – perfect for the costume shopper who really wants to break out and become someone completely different on Halloween night.

Placing one of these wigs atop your head before a Halloween-themed night on the town could easily allow you to become any number of people – the fun thing about wigs is that they’re clearly costumey, but still something you can make your own.

A pair of faux-leather leggings and motorcycle-style jacket, and I’m instantly transformed into a take-no-prisoners rock star biker chick.

With the help of a baseball cap and a little masking tape colored in that signature black-and-white tiled pattern (not something I would recommend on a real leather jacket but mine, luckily, is fully faux), I could quickly turn this biker ensemble into that of an equally rock star Nascar fan.
