While wandering around the backstreets of Harajuku with Valerie last week, I came across the fabulous store Ales.
I used to be hugely into dreadlocks and falls, and am still into wigs in a big way, so seeing this showroom made my heart go giddy-up!
There were more dreadlocks than you could poke a stick at, more fringes, extension hair in every colour, even the fashionable new twotone…
oh, and a vast array of false eyelashes as well…
But really, it was all about the wigs, baby! There were styles for lolitas, gyaru, disco babes, sensible girls…everyone!
Honestly, if you are into fake hair at all and you come to Tokyo, you MUST visit this place!! You will be soooo tempted…as I was….
Kawaii!! Yep, I was so taken with the wig that I bought it. (Waddya reckon, by the way?) And I have my eyes on some others for next time….
