Pros

  • Realistic looking!
  • Very Dense!
  • No lace, full cap
  • Multiple combs and adjustable straps
  • 150°C heat resistant or 300°F

Cons

  • Tangles very easily
  • Expensive!! (Shorter length, for the same price as my 26″ wigs!)
  • Needed to be cut (bangs came SUPER long but I got to customize the look)

Where to buy

EvaHair.com

Final Thoughts

I personally love the look of bang wigs. They look the most natural on anyone especially if you have a larger forehead and middle parts seem to look a little funny. (like on me!) I did have to cut the bangs on this wig because they came super long out of the box, but that can be good and bad. I got to customize it, which I like because I made them into a statement fringe. But I know some people want them to be “out-of-the-box-ready-to-wear” So there is a little warning for you. I do also notice that this wig tangles really easily so I bring a mini brush with me to comb out the tangles throughout the time I wear it, to avoid a rats nest at the end of the day! I will note, EvaHair is hella expensive!*

*I have been investigating and some of the wigs on their website (as well as other expensive websites) and I was able to find them on amazon for 1/3 of the price. I plan to buy a wig off amazon to do a review and see how they hold up.

Wiggy Wednesday #2

So this is the second synthetic wig I bought. I got it from WigIsFashion.com (same as my black wig) And as much as I wish to love it… I think this is the wig I like the least. This wig is almost too long and just looks a bit stringy. There is no body like my black one. I think it would look good in Wednesday Adam braids, for some kind of Khaleesi hair style. But otherwise, this wig is, in my personal opinion, lifeless.

Pros

  • Nice pastel fashion color
  • Thick density
  • Long length
  • Multiple combs and adjustable straps
  • 150°C heat resistant or 300°F

Cons

  • Long and stringy (no bounce, no layers)
  • Small parting space (even though its a lace front, recent wigs I’ve gotten have a deeper part and look more natural)
  • Middle part (just a preference, I’m not a big fan of middle parts or “pushed back” parts)
  • Tangles (though this is common with long wigs around the nape of the neck)
  • Expensive (I have recently purchased wigs that cost a 1/3 of the price of this one)
  • Needs extra hairline plucking (not everyone’s hairline is so full)
  • SYNTHETIC (may look too wiggy for some people)

Final Thoughts

So I had a hard time making this part look realistic. Like a REALLY hard time. I shifted the part to a slight side part to help with the unnatural look it has. I still would probably only wear this wig with a hat. This was my first “fashion color” wig and since purchasing this one, I have learned what kind of grey works with my skin tone. I have seen some people pull this wig off beautifully, but for me… kind of a case of buyers remorse. But don’t let my opinion sway you, if you feel like you can rock it then by all means ROCK IT!

Wiggy Wednesday

I’m sure you all can tell that I have a growing obsession with wigs… I just can’t seem to get enough of them! So I first started wanting a wig when I watched Glam&Gore’s video about her wig collection. Then I watched Alexa Poletti’s wig series… And I knew I needed one. I used to be a serial box hair dyer fiend! But ever since the “big chop,” I have given up on dyeing my hair. Its literally been 12 years since I have seen my natural hair color. Yes I have been dyeing my hair THAT LONG! Don’t get me wrong, I love my natural hair and I’m happy that its natural and unprocessed. But I do get bored with how it looks, both the length and color. So that solidified my decision further into venturing into the world of wigs!

I want to tell you a little bit about each wig I have got so far… yes I actually have more coming 🙂

So this is the first SYNTHETIC wig I bought. I got it from WigIsFashion.com and, up until my red bang wig, it was my favorite. When I dyed my hair, most of the time it was black. I think I looked the best with black hair. I felt like it suited me nicely. And thankfully I have naturally dark eyebrows, so I’m not trying to fill them in with sharpie. So this was an obvious first choice wig for me. Black hair was not a crazy color (yet) and I know I pulled it off once before, so I know I could pull it off again.

Pros

  • Looks very natural when brushed out.
  • Thick density
  • Lovely bounce and layers
  • Multiple combs and adjustable straps
  • 150°C heat resistant (via website) 300°F for American rebels! (ya know, we hate the metric system lol)

Cons

  • Small parting space (even though its a lace front, recent wigs I’ve gotten have a deeper part and look more natural)
  • Middle part (just a preference, I’m not a big fan of middle parts or “pushed back” parts)
  • Tangles (though this is common with long wigs around the nape of the neck)
  • Expensive (I have recently purchased wigs that cost a 1/3 of the price of this one)
  • Needs extra hairline plucking (not everyone’s hairline is so full)
  • SYNTHETIC (may look too wiggy for some people)

Like I mentioned in my con, this wig (well the first 3 wigs I got) were hella expensive! But the only thing I can think of that justifies that price is the density. This is a very dense wig. In other words, there is a LOT of hair! So you wont be seeing tracks or your natural hair if it is lighter than the wig color.

Final Thoughts

Its a nice wig and looks great straight out of the box. You will need to cut the extra lace and pluck the hairline for a natural look. If you want your first wig to be a nice wig with a pretty price tag, then splurge! I mean its not the most expensive wig ever but for frugal budgets, it gets pricey. I know I mentioned a lot of cons but over all, it’s a nice wig. I’m just picky since I have gotten more.

What a witchy weekend! I FINALLY found a reason to wear my witchy wig! PUMPKIN PICKING! I did get some weird looks and one lady working the kettle corn booth thought I was in costume. But hey, not everyone understands the October festiveness. I bought this wig from WigIsFashion.com. Its a synthetic lace front wig and I love it! I love my natural hair color but I also love bright and fun colors too. So to save my natural tresses, I wanted to invest in some nice wigs (my black one too) for special occasions! Some wig advice though, I really don’t like how the hairline looks on both my wigs but a quick fix is to wear a hat, beanie, or even a simple chain head piece to cover the weird hairline.

Also, shout-out to The Serpents Club for designing such beautiful jewelry! Emily is an amazing jeweler that creates stunning crystal necklaces, rings, and earrings. Her shop is out of Manchester, England; so if you live internationally to her, shipping will be a bit longer but it is totally worth the wait!! I do plan on purchasing another Leda necklace in Rose Quartz. Please check out her instagram @theserpentsclub
