Hey y'all! I am Rachel.
I am a toddler mom, wife to The Wig Man (if you don't know him make sure you check out the Cysterwigs YouTube Channel), flower & plant lover, novice watercolor artist (okay, okay, really watercolor is just like a therapy to me- I am NOT an artist!), and I am a new vlogger/blogger for Cysterwigs!
I get up as an Air Force brat so I never knew a truly permanent home until I got married and settled in Texas. I lived in Texas, California, England, Nebraska, and Mississippi while growing up and graduated from Texas A&M University in 2011. Due to all that moving around as a little kid, I got stressed out at one point and developed a small bout of Alopecia Areata. It eventually went away and I had AMAZING bio hair for years. I always said my hair was my favorite physical feature about myself. Then, my hair started falling out in drastic amounts one day and a few months later I was totally bald(alopecia totalis)! It was a really, really difficult period of my life, but now I am not sad anymore and totally love wearing wigs. I had to deal with the hand I had been dealt and make the most of it, and sitting around sad about it didn't do anything for me. Watercolor, online wig communities, and Heather's videos on YouTube helped me come out of that depression and I hope they can for you too if you have a similar story.
Here I am now with multiple wigs in multiple brands, colors, & styles. I can put on a different attitude every day! I absolutely love wearing wigs and if my bio hair ever grew back, I would still definitely wear wigs!
What is your favorite wig? - Girl Mono by Ellen Wille....or Codi XO by Amore.....or Arrow by Ellen Wille..... many more! I have too many favorites to pick just one!
Preferred cap construction: ANYTHING with monofilament!
How long you've been wearing wigs: Since June of 2017
Advice you wish you would have known from the beginning: Buying a long, heat friendly synthetic for your first wig is NOT a good idea!
Favorite quote: Don't let you circumstances bring out the worst in you. Let them bring out the BEST in you!
