Not bad for a first wig
May 8, 2010
I've been wanting to try wigs for a long time - finally got up the nerve to order one. This one was in a price range that I figured would be good enough to not look cheapy & fake, yet inexpensive enough that I wouldn't be out that much if it didn't work out.
Very cute, pretty much wearable right out of the box, just needed a little perking up with the wig brush. I didn't tell my husband I ordered it. I wore it last night for the first time to a function - didn't say a thing to my husband about it. He did a brief double take but didn't say anything. Finally my daughter said "Your hair looks awesome, Mom!" My husband said "I didn't see you leave the house to get ready for tonight - when did you sneak out to get your hair done?" When I told him in private, he laughed & laughed that he hadn't been able to even tell that it was a wig, even though he had stood up close to me, even admired my earrings.
Only drawback is that it's a bit tight, even with adjusting straps let out all the way.
I see many comments at many of the wig reviews here and at other sites that many women complain about the same thing. Why aren't the wig manufacturers listening??? I did check out the larger cap wigs, but frankly, they're not as good looking as my own hair, and are dorky & outdated in style. Would it kill you wig manufacturers to make them a tiny bit larger? They ARE adjustable after all, so just make them a dot larger, and those with smaller heads can just go a dot tighter. I'm a tall woman and my head is proportional to my body - I'm not a freak of nature, for crying out loud.
Pros:Looked very natural
Could wear it right out of the box
Cons:Like many stylish wigs, demonstrates designer + manufacturer shortcoming by not getting the sizing right. We women with larger cap sizes want to look stylish too, and guess what. We have just as much money to spend as smaller-capped women.
