Oh my Lort. So much hair. So much no.
Margu just never does it for me. The wigs needs more styling and less hair fiber. I often feel like they haven’t updated the way they make wigs since the mid-80s. The caps and the hair fiber both feel dated; although some of the colors are lovely. Margus generally feel to me like they should priced much lower than a Noriko or a Raquel Welch; they’re too heavy and thick for the cost and need too much styling to work. And even their advertising to me needs an upgrade. I get the impression that Margu has a small but loyal following, which is why all their wigs look about the same, cost about the same, and the level of effort the company appears to put out to promote their wigs is pretty low. I guess they’re doing something right to still be in business; maybe it’s human hair that’s their real draw? If that’s the case, I wouldn’t know, since I don’t do HH.
Anyway here’s Ava – all 300 pounds of her. And sorry about the bright red backdrop; I was going through a colorful backdrop phase in my photography and the wig reviews suffered because of it. I also have some with a FABULOUS orange background that’s just awesome for wig reviews (except that it isn’t). And there I am in a tank top again; not sure what I was thinking because now that just looks tacky to me. But whatever. We’ll all make do.
And I’m not sure why I keep comparing this wig to Griffin. I think at the time I may have been confused and thinking both wigs were by the same company. Griffin is a Tony of Beverly though, not a Margu, so I was wrong about that. Perhaps I was comparing them because the price was similar…? Because that’s about all these two wigs have in common. Griffin is gorgeous, this one, not so much.
Disclaimers: I bought this item with my own money and no one paid or asked me to do the review.
