Live or Memorex???

Allison and I went looking at wigs today (trying to wrap my brain around the prospects of chemo) and then I went to my hair stylists for a radical cut and new color.  She thought it would be fun to challenge you to figure out which is the new "do" and which is the wig.  By the way, for you young'uns who don't get the "Live or Memorex" reference, Memorex made cassette tapes and their commercials claimed  that a musical  performance recorded with their product was as good as a live performance.

I find it amusing that the real 'do ended up looking so close to the wig I had tried on, which the stylist had not even seen except for the picture on Alli's phone.  I actually showed her a picture of a different wig and said that I really liked it better and wanted to try to get close to that style and color.  

So as you can see, I now have a nice short summer style that won't require much from me, assuming it gets to "hang around" for a while. 

Girls just wanna have fun >)


  1. Yes very close indeed.

    So you want a guess. My guess is first one your hair second one wig.

    Sounds like you had a good time.


  2. I agree with Linda . I think the first one is yours and the second the wig. Talk about making lemonade out of lemons - Michelle you rock!


  3. I think it is the other way around, the first one the wig and the second is your hair.

  4. Michelle, sounds like you had a blast doing this. LOL. Little short story: I had a dietician appointment one day and she had been working with women who were just diagnosed with breast cancer. So my appointment was in the breast cancer center over at Loyola Medical University. I sat in the waiting area amongst gorgeous bathing suits for women with BC and a full array of wigs on the other wall. People were coming in an out so nonchalant without a care in the world. I was amazed at the confidence and attitude of these women, like there was nothing different going on.

    I hate trying to decide what is a wig or not. I say that because I had styled my hair one day and a salesgirl asked if I was wearing a wig! Rude, if you ask me! LOL. I did immediately wash my hair after that one.

    Anyway, here goes. I agree with Janet; first one wig and the other your natural hair. Don't keep us waiting. Will there be a prize for this one?

    BTW, I DO remember those Memorex commercials.


  5. Love the new do. I'm probably wrong but I think the first is the wig and the second is your new look.

  6. LOVE IT!! Very flattering shape and color!

    First one is wig...they are always shiner than real hair, unless you have a cellophane treatment. :)
