So I have a lot of packages coming in from eBay. I landed a pretty nice gig, and I sort of, er, spoiled myself this holiday season. I've been rather generous to others too, but let's be real: I finally have an excuse to cut my watch list in half. One of the things I bought was a new wig. I've been antsing for something blond-ish, but not too overpowering like one of my other ones. One of the wigs I ended up getting was this little gem.
I was really worried about how it was going to turn out, because in its description it said it was "gray", but it looked well, like this. So I was fringe-worrying that it was actually going to turn out grey and not this interesting tri-toned blond colour.
(when I'm not holding it, it looks like it gave up on life)
It has a lot of movement for a wig, I'm really impressed. The one thing that I hate, hate, hate about this wig is that it sheds mercilessly, especially straight out of the bag. I think I got the most of its shedding rebellion, but there are still long hairs that fall out. So that's one big negative about this thing: it does shed like crazy when it really wants to.
It adjusts really well to my head; I hardly ever have to fix the wig itself. As far as styling, it's incredibly forgiving and styles wonderfully. I can use my Gatsby on it too. Since I don't have to use a lot, I can get an interesting gyaru-o host looking effect. Needless to say, I'm really won over by this wig. I can style it, or I can shake my head and have it do its own thing. It still looks good. A little messy, but if I'm really too pressed about it, I can just shake my head again and start over.
Fingercombing, strangely enough, makes it a bit more complicated. If you're just styling it, it's fine, but if you're desperately trying to comb it out of your hair, it becomes a trap. That sheds. Be careful because it can get in your eyes.
It can pass for relatively normal in normal light (as you can see above), but in too strong a light or under unnatural lights (indoor lamps and such), it can look very much like a shiny wig. All the same, it passes all of my tests. It's light; it styles well; and it looks far better than I expected it to. Even with the cons of possible shininess and shedding, I'm pretty satisfied with this purchase.
