Dancing with the Stars Hair Pieces

Yes, I’m a sucker for fake hair pieces, accessories, extensions, the like, but only if they are temporary. I tried the glue in extensions and couldn’t wait to get them out. I’m just not that kind of girl! Anyway, the Dancing with the Stars TV show put out a collection with my favorite Put on Pieces by HAIRUWEAR. I’ve wasted quite a bit of money on all kinds of pieces so I’m pretty picky when it comes to ones now as they have to match almost exactly or they just look funny. I’ve found that sometimes the strands can be toned down from looking to shiney by buffing some talcum powder in them.

Dancing-with-the-Stars-Hair-Collection-from-Put-On-Pieces-by-HairuWear So my main question about this is, did the Dancing with the Stars contestants actually wear some of these pieces during competition? I mean they could have worn the Bango Tango ($22) blunt cut bangs, or the Salsaloosa ($15) hair wrap with contrasting lengths. I just don’t know. They do come in 12 different shades so shades so they could get a match.

My pick from the collection is the Glamarama ($20), soft waves on a clip-in comb. You know the look of your hair when you put it in the French twist and the ends stick out all over the place? That’s the effect you get with this piece. Simply put your own hair into a bun and clip this one in. And the clip that holds onto your own hair is pretty strong but I think it could have been made better if it was made of metal. Maybe I should test it out more by hitting the dance floor! Nah… $20 @

Hairdo -- My Latest Obsession

I was recently all hot on the press-on nails and now I’m back on the hair pieces again. Is it because I Tivo The Wendy Williams Show every day? Or that overall hair pieces are just getting more and more realistic looking!? My latest woo-hoo is the Bump Up the Volume by HAIRDO ($99 @, which is part of the new Stylables collection that just came out. This one is attached to the crown of the hair to give you that “Bumpits” kick. I mean, this is something I can use, ok, honey?? (I seem to get somewhat fierce when I wear a piece).


What’s also unique about the Stylables collection of hair is that the synthetic hair was developed with what they call Tru2Life fiber that can withstand heat up to 350 degrees. Did you hear that? Should I say it again? Now, again, this is something else I can work with!


I’m convinced that if you can match your hair color or at least get it in the right color family, them some of these clip-in hair pieces can work for you too (this brand comes in eight different shades). And I seem to be most drawn to those that are worn underneath for more volume.  I can walk in a room and not feel like everyone is staring at me because I am wearing fake hair.

My only suggestion would be to the overall length. Not many people have hair that cascades down to 20” so chopping off at least 5” to this one would make it perfect.

Have you ever tried wearing a hair piece or do you already? Please share you experience and work it, girl!
