With a Name Like Mambo, You Know What You're Getting!
March 6, 2012
OK, this wig looks very much like the picture. It is incredibly long and curly, and the bangs have a lot of height and fluff off the face. This is not the most modern look going - it reminds me of Chandler's girlfriend from Friends or Elaine from Seinfeld - so it's very 90's in appearance with some 80's looking bangs thrown in. That said, it is definitely a LOOK, and one that the right person will pull off fabulously. I can see a lot of reasons to own this wig because it really goes for it and doesn't wimp out or skimp on the VAVOOM - if you want volume and curls and length, well this is the wig for you. You could easily get this trimmed if the length is too much for you, but those poufy bangs are pretty set. Thank goodness it's a lacefront - which is very realistic BTW. Non-mono top but it doesn't really need it as you need height at the crown to offset the curls. I still feel Tony of Beverly is a bit overpriced, BUT if this wig's curls hold up then this one will be worth it. there just aren't many wigs out right now that really provide this look and I know this is exactly what some people want - for sure it takes some gorgeous pictures! So, you will definitely feel like doing the "Mambo" in this wig! And chances are, the men in your life will love it because let's face it they can't resist long curls! And - in spite of all that length and curl the wig is VERY light and comfortable which surprised me for sure. Use a wide-toothed comb to ease the curls loose when you take it out of the box because if you don't it looks very stiff and fake. After a little gentle fluffing though - WOW. The first photo is the wig right out of the box (as evidenced by the tag) and the second one is after combing the curls with a three-prong comb (GENTLY tease them apart) and fluffing up the top.
Pros:Lovely curl pattern
Ginger Brown is a nice color
The wig in reality lives up to the photos
Tons of length and curl
light and very comfortable
Cons:Certainly not a modern look
It does have a lot of permatease (doesn't bug me but I know some people hate that)
Tony of Beverly wigs are a bit overpriced IMHO
