I had the day off today (and it was a rare sunny day *O*) so I knew I had to use the time to catch up on some posts >.< Namely, A wig post. I have had this wig since months ago and am only now reviewing it, same goes for the clip on fringe!
Both the wig and fringe were bought off eBay. I no longer have the links, but I am sure if you type 'long curly wig' or 'clip on bangs' then most of the products that would show up are all similar to each other.
Now.. on another note, my little cousins messed around with the long wig and oh man was that a bad thing to let happen. A wig tangles like maaaaaad! And I do not have a wig comb to brush it out =.=;; So I am super sorry about how the wig looks :C
Anywho, here's the review!
Long Curly Wig
About the Wig:
This is a full, synthetic wig that is wavy/curly in the color dark brown.
Let's start off with some full face ones to catch your attention Wahahaha :P
Length: It's approx 28'' and hits below the narrowest point on my waist
You can see the full length here:
Quality & Appearance:
The wig feels fake, that is for sure, kind of like very dry hair to be exact. The synthetic strands are sewn on quite well, however, some may be pulled out if you comb through them with your fingers. The wig actually doesn't look as fake as I thought it would! Though it does have a slight wig shine to it, it isn't too noticeable unless you are in direct sunlight/bright lit areas. I also need to add one more thing about it's appearance, the wig looks best in photos with sunny lighting! (which is the type of lighting I had for these photos) The color is a dark brown indoors, however, if it is a nice sunny day the wig could even have a slight ashy hint to it! In flash there is a red undertone.
There is a lot of "hair" on this wig, enough to have some left in the back if you tend to part your hair and bring it to the front.
One thing I must say again though is that although there is plenty of hair...
the worst thing about it is how easily it can become tangled!
My attempt at making it look more presentable:
how it looks with FLASH
Close up of the bangs, looks quite natural here!
Additional Thoughts: The wig can feel a bit heavy because of the amount of hair and on top of that, the length. It is something you get used to after wearing it for a bit but that's just an additional point I wanted to make.
Clip On Fringe
I didn't realize but I completely forgot to take a photo for the other side of the bangs!!
Now it is no longer sunny so I'm not able to take a proper photo of it T^T
But there isn't much to it, there are two clips at the top placed about 2'' apart to secure it to your hair.
Okay, so I had these from before I colored my hair lighter, so it may look awkward due to the color differences :/ Nonetheless~
Obviously the color does not match. When I had darker hair though, the color was the same. From the pictures above though, you can see that the hairs of the fringe actually blends in quite decently with my natural hair!
Quality & Appearance:
The quality of clip on bangs are probably much more reliable than wigs I think. The bangs look more believable and the strands barely come off. The only thing though would be the top. Either you wear a headband or something along those lines to cover that part up..
I wanted to figure out a way to make it look better though so I decided to tie up two pig tails on the side of my head, something that I never do. Never.
Each pig tail having the sides of the fringe tied up:
Looks better? haha
I guess the excuse could be that I was following that trend of coloring your bangs a different color than the rest of your hair :P
Welp, that is all for these two long overdue reviews!
I leave you with a photo of meeee~ In my PJ's once again.
And why yes, that is a ONE OF A KIND T-shirt ;D
GD fans out there anybody??
