I got married on the beach, and always wanted to have an up-do. My shoulder-length hair made this tough. So, I bought this peice and it was EXACTLY what I needed! It was thick enough to make the up-do what I wanted, but not too long where it looks 'fake' . Color #4 match identical for me. Was able to pin it in (and up) pretty easily. I was happy! Wish I had a better picture, but this is the only one I found that was looking at the back of my head!
