The other day I was in Starbucks and I saw this woman with beautiful curly blond hair, and once I stopped starting and ogling her tresses, I finally spoke up and told her that I loved her hair.
Yet, to my surprise, she smiled, said thank you, and then told me that it was a wig*! I couldn’t believe it, because it looked so natural, and fit her perfectly.
So, then I started thinking, about how I usually get complimented on my crochet style by this woman at work, who believes that it is my hair, no extensions*, and I have yet to muster the courage to bust her bubble and tell her that it isn’t my hair.
This is something that I’ve always struggled with- when people ask me about my hair extensions*, do I honestly tell them it’s not mine, and if I don’t, am I lying?
This is a topic that has been tossed around among my group chat of girlfriends, and they all agreed that it’s up to you if you want to tell someone your hair is not yours.
However, what about in a dating situation? What if your guy asks you whether or not your sew in is your natural length- in that case, when he is asking you flat out, is saying it is all yours when it isn’t, a lie?
I have conflicting thoughts on the topic, but ultimately I think it comes down to personal preference. For example, the coworkers at work who frequently compliment my curly crochet hair, I don’t think it’s lying when I don’t divulge the fact that it’s not my real hair.
However, if someone asks me flat out whether or not it’s mine, then in that case I do believe honesty is best. On the flip side it just means that your hair stylist did a darn good job because people can’t distinguish whether it’s real or fake!
What do you guys think, is honesty always the best policy when receiving a compliment on your extensions*?
