    I had gastric bypass and have lost s good but of hair. My hair color is very hard to match (red). I want to make my own. I'm looking for a piece that would look like Karen from Will and Grace. I had one on a comb with wire to wrap around that I loved but it was the wrong color and synthetic. My hair dresser will dye the hair that I will use for me but I need help finding the right components to make it. I want a comb with longer teeth if I use a comb and have been unable to find one. Any help would be appreciated. My hair looks awful.

      I used to have a wire comb thing that I LOVED too! If I was going to recreate it, I would use a wire clip - you can find good ones in the bridal sections at craft stores usually. Then I would use wire and build up two antennae pieces from the comb. Then I would glue weaving hair (human hair that can be colored) starting at the tip of the antennae, winding down to the base. You'd want to use reasonably short hair for it to look best - probably 8 to 10 inches. A pretty easy build really. :)
