Frugal Fashion: How to Save Money on Wigs

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

When I was in my 20s, I worked part-time in retail management as a way to build up savings as I launched my own business. I’ve always had a penchant for dying my hair all kinds of colors, but since my workplace had a dress code requirement of natural hair colors only, I had to take a break from the bright pinks and blues for a while. Then one day, it occurred to me that perhaps a wig might be an option. What if I bought a wig that was a natural color, like brown, and then I could dye my hair whatever color I wanted? Genius!

But then, I started looking at wigs and realized just how expensive they can be – easily running over $100+. I looked around to see if there were any more affordable options, and ended up getting a $20 wig from an auction site. My clever plan worked, and I was able to go to work with brown hair while concealing my real, fire engine red hair underneath!

Hard at work

That was over 10 years ago, and there are way better options available today than just buying a random cheap wig! I was recently introduced to Divatress, an online wig retailer that specializes in remy hair, wigs, weaves, ponytails, accessories and more. They have a great variety of wigs in beautiful colors for as low as $14.95 with free shipping over $49 in the continental US. I work for myself these days, so I can have whatever hair color I like, but I still have fun wearing wigs from time to time so I’ll definitely be looking to Divatress the next time I need to pick one up!
