Hair So Fly

Final Thoughts

This wig is probably my favorite wig OF ALL TIME! This wig is so much fun! It’s like having old granny hair but turning the sexiness up to 1000%! I got this wig because I was looking for a fun mid length grey wig, since I didn’t like my long witchy one too much. I knew that shorter wigs have more volume and I came across this one on YouTube. The bangs are super voluminous and feathery. The wig has loose body waves/curls that aren’t your typical ringlets or kinky curls. This wig looks like you got your hair professionally done at a celebrity hair stylist. If you were to buy a more natural color wig, it would look very retro glamorous, perfect for any party you’re looking to stand out in! The ONLY downside it the scratchy lace (its not Swiss lace or silk base) and its considered “lace front” but really only has less than an inch of lace. Most lace fronts come with at least a 2 inch lace front parting space. So you have to really work the hair to make it lay perfect so the tracks don’t show. But that being said, it’s a very dense wig! The layers and light yaki texture gives it even more volume.

Final Thoughts

I dub this wig my Hermione Granger wig! It’s not as frizzy as it should be but I totally plan to rock this wig with a Hogwarts uniform this Halloween!

So this is one of the first wigs I bought that were not expensive “fashion wigs.”  I was skeptical at first, buying such a cheap wig. But I think that’s what makes the “fashion wig” sellers thrive. People are more drawn to expensive “better quality” wigs that have a big following on social media. But I found that these cheaper wigs are just as good, sometimes better than the expensive wigs! I will say that you need to still be wary because the density of these cheaper wigs is a lot less than the $70-$100 front laces. However this wig has not let me down. I did have to sew the cap smaller which helped conceal the tracks that could have possibly been visible. But really, I love this wig. It is the most natural wig I own! If you are looking for a natural wig to just subtly change around your look, I think this would be the perfect first timer wig!

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.
