My Wig Slipped Off in the Club and My Friends Didn’t Say a Word!

woman at a party

Disclaimer: I hate going to the club, However, on this particular occasion, it was my friends 26th birthday, so I figured I was obligated to go.

I just think that at a certain age you should not be entertained by twerking and unsolicited gropes. Not to mention, I’m introverted and slightly claustrophobic.

So, the idea of being in a cramped space with tons of people, makes me cringe. But again, it was my best friend’s birthday, and that’s where she wanted to hold her party, so I had no choice.

I figured in order to be somewhat social, I should at least be inebriated. The party started at 8 that night, so I started sipping a bit of wine around 6 or so as I started the getting ready process. I’m a natural gal, and on this day my hair was going through one of its defiant moments, and not cooperating with me, so I threw on my silky straight lace front wig.

I love this wig a lot, but I knew it was a bit too loose on my head, even though I secured it with bobby pins. When I got to the party, the scene was LIT, for lack of a better word.

I mean, it was super packed, and the first person I saw was my ex. Seeing him almost sent me into a panic and asthma attack at the same time, so I quickly rushed to the bar and ordered something strong.

Fast forward to a couple of hours later I was actually haveing a good time and feeling even better about going out. The DJ was playing all of my songs and I was not thinking about my ex, at all! Out of the corner of my eye I had noticed that my ex had been pointing at me with his boy, and smirking.

I figured he was just being his same old petty self and was probably just hating that I was having a good time. Either way, I decided to go to the restroom to straighten up my makeup, and couldn’t believe what I saw when I looked in the mirror.

My wig was halfway on and halfway off! It was totally sideways. To say I was embarrassed would be the understatement of the year, and I was also livid. Why didn’t my girl tell me that I was dancing around looking crazy! I quickly called the uber from the bathroom and only left when it said it had arrived.

Needless to say the birthday girl and I are no longer friends. For one I was not about the club lifestyle, and she clearly still is, and she let me walk around with my wig sliding off….. Unreal!

    If they were dancing and drinking then I highly doubt that they noticed. I don’t notice things like that if I’m having a good time. Now if we get into better lighting and I notice that something is wrong then I’ll say something.

    even if it was dark as hell and we were drunk as….if you got there with long straight hair….and all of a sudden you looking like Samuel Jackson or Morgan Freeman to me….I would know that some s**t aint right….sstop calling her friend now!!

    The friends didn’t notice, really the deeper issue is females depending on weaves and wigs don’t know how to manage their own hair therefore not truly luving themselves living 98 percent of life in someone else’s hair she is a lil silly to blame her borderline bipolar and low self esteem on her friends just ridiculous is all…

      Seriously?! You got all that from her talking about her hating “friends”? You never needed a break a take a short cut? Please keep your issues to yourself! Be nice or don’t say nothing at all. Trust. It works much better than spewing hate.

    I worked at a salon and asked another stylist to do my hair for an event, because I knew I wouldn’t have time later. She kept blowing me off until it was time for me to go, then suddenly “remembered”. I ended up wearing a wig that night, there was no way I was going to be able to make a presentable style in the little time I had. Having long fine curly and frizzy hair is not good in a pinch. It’s also slippery.. Fast forward-I was at this event, someone’s work Christmas party. Everyone on the dance floor was thankfully drunk except me, because I rarely drink and do not get drunk. I was dancing around, having a good time, and the wig came right off, despite the many bobby pins and spring clips and attached combs I had in it. Since I was sober I was able to react super quick, grabbing it from the floor and getting to the bathroom within seconds. I put it back on then sat there quietly the rest of the night. I’ve worn them to functions since then but they are made differently now and a bit easier to keep on.

    Something similar happened to me on St Patricks Day 2015. We were invited to a house party for 7pm. So I told myself I won’t go anywhere till it was time for the party as exams were fast approaching. So I wanted to stay home and study. But my closest friend then urged me to go with her to the supermarket to get some beer and ingredients for Mac salad. I had baked a cake for the party so I just wanted to study. But she urged me and so I went. We walked to and back home spending about 1hour. I stayed with her in her apartment while she prepared the salad and only left to my apartment when it was 6.45pm just to get the cake and wear my touch of green shirt for the party. As always, when I get home I go straight to the mirror. This time, I looked at myself in disbelief as my wig was half off. Did I mention it was a red wig and my hair is jet black? Long story short, I lost respect for her cos I realized she didn’t have my back like I had hers. Went for the party but weeks later we were no longer friends till date.

    I am an old lady now, but back in the day when I was in high school I wore a wig for the first time. I walked the hall all day, when I went to the bathroom and looked in the mirror my wig was sitting on my head sideways and nobody told me. It took me 45 yrs to get the nerve to wear another wig. I had this big afro wig on thought I was looking cute. I know how she felt.
