Clear for Takeoff!
Updated: Mar 3, 2019
If you wear a daily wear top piece, there are a few things you should consider when going to the airport and traveling with your hair.
Before I started wearing hair, sitting on an airplane was one of the things I dreaded most, because I knew the person sitting directly behind me had a close up view of my thinning hair for hours. I would sink down into my chair while trying to avoid their stare. All of this changed for me when I started wearing hair, as my top pieces gave me the confidence to know that I was "covered".
Here are some tips for when you are traveling and wearing hair.
1. I feel my best when I am wearing hair, so if you are on a domestic flight, the best way to travel with your hair is to wear it. If your hair is long enough, pulling it into a ponytail makes traveling easy.
2. Your clips will register when you go through the body scanner. When the TSA agent comes over, tell them, "I am wearing hair" and then go about your day. You will NOT be asked to remove your hair!
3. Sit back and enjoy your flight! Go ahead and let the passengers enjoy the view of the back of your head. It’s just stranger in seat 18A, nothing to see here!
