I made this wig for my mom after she asked if she could borrow my Natural Blonde Wig for crazy hair day at her school. As much as I love that one, it was just a joke so I didn't put any thought or much effort into it. So when she asked for something that I knew people were going to be looking closely at I wanted to make her proud. I was going to do a mohawk but she'd never wear it, so I went with a faux hawk. I may add some colour highlights before I send it to her. Hope you like it!

This ROCKS so hard! I'm sure people will stop and do double takes if your mom uses this for Crazy Hair day. Cheesy

I inevitably see different renditions of this in varied colors and styles, can't wait! Wink

At the first pictures I liked it, but with a bit of a question mark.
But then I saw you wearing it and I think it is amazing!
Awesome job!

You look like you stepped out of a photoshoot for Vogue.  Interesting what can be done with popsicle sticks...

All of my neighbors love it when I wear it to walk the dogs and are now totally used to seeing me with popsicle sticks on my head. LOL

Y'all, my mom got it in the mail today and she looooves it! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

The are pretty solid on there, but it's just hot glue. It's pretty light and not flexible enough to stress the sticks.
