Hi,

 

I went for a makeover day and photoshoot recently. Is it okay if I share some photos from it and get your opinions on some things?

So first thing, I tried on a lot of different wigs and I wonder which styles I should consider styling my hair in future.

 

Here is me with my current natural hair:

And here are the different wigs:

 

1.

Which do people think would work well on me when my hair grows long enough?

Hey Kris, looking good! Sounds like you had some fun! :)

 

If I'm allowed to pitch in, my fav i 7 followed by 8, and I also really like 6 (but that's my personal taste)! But you look good in all of them, although I didn't really care much for #3. I think the darker tones compliment your skin tone best. But I'm no expert, it's just my personal humble preference!

 

 

 

In the end, it should be about what makes you feel good and most like yourself! Something that expresses your personality! That's something I struggled myself with, usually what others thought looked best on me didn't feel right because it catered to their perspective of me and their gender preconceptions.

 

Also, if I may, I find that have a style icon helps.

 

Anyway, what are your favs out of these?

Thanks for this. I think it might be the case that darker colours work better on me as I am rather pale. 

 

The thing is I really like all of them (there were more we tried but didn't include here) . Currently looking at these my gender euphoria is shooting right up so I find it hard to judge. All my brain goes is "OMG so pretty!!!" 😍😍😍

 

As such I wanted to get other people's thoughts as well.

Looking at your photos makes me happy, I think because I can sense your excitement :)

 

I think you don't have to stick to darker, if you don't want to, as long as the color has warmer tones in it I think you can do blond. If you fancy it of course!

 

I had a phase where I was really into reading about how to look your best what all that, back when I thought I had to stick to being f. Turns out there is more to just dark and light. I came across a lot of stuff about warm and cold undertones, in skin and hair and how it's all about complementing your natural undertones. Or something like that. It's a whole world of it's own!

 

Looking at the photos again, your make-up looks pretty warm too, so maybe that's also why I find that the warmer hair suits you best..? Cause they go together well. I don't know, I'm sorry I think I'm getting into graphic designer mode! :P

Haha fair enough. 

It is just so weird for me to look at pictures like this and like what I see of myself and feel they are actually me.

Hi Kris, not surprised you are happy to see yourself, some lovely photos 🙂 Not that anyone other than you matters in these things, but I liked 1,6 and 9, as I think they look most natural for everyday use and emphasise things like your cheekbones and your kawaii eyes - but I have to say that 6 was my personal favourite of the ones you have put up - possibly because it looks like you are close to being able to do that anyway with your natural hair.

Hello Kris, The make up was done very nicely.  I must say I like number 1 your natural hair as it does look "natural".  The last one looks good on you as well.  As far as looking pale, estrogen will seem to do that.  We eventually loose any rudiness in our skin.  My mother commented soon after I started E that I needed a little pink blush to give my face some color.  As you see it makes a world of difference.   It seems to be the trend now but I find some women go too heavy and wide with the eyebrows.  I favor lighter, thinner ones.  Something to consider.  

 

Looking at photos such as these is enjoyable, seeing the woman that was locked inside.  Enjoy!

Maybe i'm showing my age but apart from your own hail i like # 6.  It is stunning as it shows off your eyes and while the color may say older the cut and your face says young, perky and energetic.

 

 

Hugs,

Ah thank you.

 

I am not on Estrogen yet (just naturally pale) but I feel quite complimented you thought I was.

:applause:You really do suit the off the shoulder cut dresses. I'm very jealous! (and I am still a fan of the ash wig)

To be fair I have known mums who go out of their way to dress like the first photo just to collect their kids from school in a 4x4 that has never been off road in its life, but they are universally despised by the rest of us who just try to get there on time - so - absolutely, right place right right time applies to cis women too. 😁

I'm going to be a bit of a rebel here, but #8 looks easily what your hair can become for you.  I agree with Char that they are a bit over the top for office wear or grocery shopping, but going out for a nice evening totally do it for you.

The last one with the silver hairpiece is very nice.  That style suits you face really well.  That color is fashionable now and you can see why, it makes your eyes just shine.  

 

On my earlier comment, oops my bad! but I'm glad I made your day. 😄

 

Cheers,

Thank you all for your lovely comments you are brilliant. 

Honestly still can't believe how happy these pictures and people's comments are making me. My gender euphoria is just so high. 

 

On the hair I think I am probably musing between 6 and 7 now. A lot of different people have told me how good I would look in 6 and it was a lot of fun looking like that. But 7 maybe feels more me. But I am going to keep musing. (And staring at all the pictures to keep giving me that sweet euphoria 😍

Stunning photos.  Makeup is done very well and compliments your bone structure perfectly.  I like all the wigs on you but favor 1, 8, & 9 most. Your natural hair is very nice too.  You're looking great and I like your outfit in the second photo in the second set of pics.

 

Thanks for sharing,

Susan R🌷

I think 2&6 for wigs. Scrolling through those two look most naturally flowing. 

I like the full photos too. That looks like a fun thing to do. But I’ll keep my thoughts on style to myself cause......

This is kind of who I am. 🤷🏻‍♀️  I’ll 100% wear a dress an wedge heels to grocery shop. And I enjoy putting in the effort on myself all the time. Live hard and play hard. Always.

the first full photo is how I look too most of the time when I am out shopping. I know most cis women don't look like that but it makes me happy and I feel more comfy in a bodycon dress and high heels than jeans and flats.

lol, serves me right for typing that. :) 🤗 It isn't the looking good Kirsten - that's just being a yummy mummy - it's the looking like you just stepped out of a salon and are actually on your way out for an evening of ballroom dancing or theatre, I have heard lots of grumbles and sniping as the invisible 'man... but at the end of the day people can and should dress however they want to, some ways will always just stand out more.

I know what you meant Dee. It’s mostly for me partly because I dress like a guy basically all the time for my job. So when I am not in jeans work boots and tattered shirts, I am in fancy look at me kind of outfits with plenty of makeup and colored hair and all that kind of stuff. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I just like it I guess. That’s kinda who “that girl” is. And just ask my wife. I am very much one of those girls I guess. Lol. I think it’s supposed to be a bad thing, but not to me. 😉

I'll chime in that I liked 5, 7, 8, & 9...with 8 being my favorite. Ombre is a very popular look with the gals stateside right now. But those red tones in your second set of photos are rockin'! You could really pick any of them and be stunning. Thanks for sharing! And let us know which one you end up choosing 😉

      I always shave mine, but they just go hairy again. Still an inconvenience to have to shave, but to me it is much better than the horrible black thick hairs everywhere. They're my main cause for dysphoria.

      hi, i keep having thoughts that i'm not trans, even though i know that i am. i think its influenced by some of my family and other people that i know, who try to deny it. is there any way to stop these thoughts and reassure myself?
    • AnnaD
      thats just ridiculous to be honest, i already hate schools stopping students from wearing certain clothes (unless theyre offensive) or having certain hair etc... but when they kick a student out just for something that they can't change, its too much.

      i'm only out to a few people so far, but when i'm eventually out fully, i see theres quite a lot for me to look forwards to. i know that it takes a lot of pressure off. 👍

      So a lot of threads here are about the challenges of coming out and the such. One thing in all the therapy I have done over and over, is that we should try and look for good things. Now, their are struggles, and the other posts serve functions in helping people understand what they are about to face, and how they might deal with it. But, I thought it would be cool if we had a list of things from people of all the things that make them smile, or have bouts of joy that can only occur because they are out! For me: -When someone calls me Mackenzie or she/her it makes me feel good.  -When I see a dress that looks wonderful, I get to say, "Yeah, I am going to buy that" instead of "Damn, I wish I could get that." -The look of my body when it is hairless, and I am wearing my feminine clothing, and I see a women in front of me in the mirror.   Those are just the tip of the ice burgs! Share yours, and lets couple the advice in this forum with some highlights and silver linings!

      sorry this is quite a bit late, but yes, a nurse should understand. the nurses in my school are great, but i know some teachers who are just plain ignorant. at least your friend Will and your teacher is supportive, its good to have friends.

      I was exhausted after the movie Endtime I went to bed right away, actually sleeping til 5am. I couldn’t go back to sleep so I drove to a 24hr Mexican food drive through and bought a breakfast burrito, and drove to a drive thu Starbucks, 😂🚙🌯☕️.  Then the a/c technician called early, amazing, so I had to 🚙💨 over to my friends house to help. She doesn’t like to home alone with technicians, I don’t mind. That took a while. Then dropped an electric razor for my dad, then shopping for groceries, made it out of Costco with spending over $100, then finally back home to eat lunch.

      My breast forms became uncomfortable pretty fast when I began HRT.  Charlize idea about the "adds one size" type of silicone enhancers did work for a time as well.  Another product that I used are called petals which have s sticky silicone  surface on one side that keeps the nipples from being as obvious when you are not wearing a bra.  An old riddle that I have posted here a time or two that does have truth to it: What is the difference between a Trans woman and a Cross Dresser?  The Cross Dresser can't wait to get home to put her bra ON, a Trans woman can't wait to get home and take her bra OFF.    I have maxed out (after 10 years) at a B and find the front closing bras to work better for me.  Part of my tissue is under my arms and the Front Close pushes that forward.
