Video Wig Review of Stylista by Gabor in Color GL29-31 (Rusty Auburn)

A fellow wig-wearer I know is waiting to see this review before deciding whether or not to pull the trigger on this one, so here it is!

Now – this is quite funny actually. When I took this wig out of the box and put it on my head, I thought: oh HAIL no. It had what appeared to be so much height to it that I thought it looked like a bouffant, and I felt like the color was flat-out awful on me. Even while filming and looking in a mirror while messing with it, I thought it looked terrible. So, I spent a good chunk of the video explaining why it didn’t work on me, color-wise or style-wise. I didn’t think it was a bad wig, I just thought it looked bad on me.

Then I uploaded and started watching the video to edit it, and lo and behold, my opinion changed. While I still don’t think it’s a keeper for me (mostly because it does still appear to be “too much” hair on me) I realized it does not look bad at all. And heck, I think the color is actually pretty nice on me! Go figure. Honestly, I don’t know how anyone chooses the right wig for them without taking photos and some video of it on their head – it sounds crazy, but the truth is that just looking at yourself in the mirror is not enough. And even photos can be deceptive. Take pictures from all angles and shoot some video while you’re at it when trying on new wigs – it makes such a big difference. I really think that’s why there are people like me who enjoy filming the reviews – we get to see how the wig looks on ourselves from all angles, and how it moves on us when we’re talking and being ourselves (well, some modified version of ourselves anyway). Take pictures! Make a little video! It will totally help.

So, this video is all kinds of choppy and short, because I didn’t want to keep in all my criticisms of how bad the wig looks on me. Sorryboutit. It’s a quick three minute vid, but it’s enough for you to see how it looks.

Disclaimers: I bought this item with my own money and no one paid or asked me to do the review. Opinions are my own.

    • LOL I hated this color on me at first. Of course I do have the perfect lighting hitting me here, and a ton of stage makeup, but it definitely is not a “bad” color on me like I initially thought.

      I am enjoying doing the reviews again – not sure why I enjoy them so much! I just love wigs and hair and makeup and it’s a way to get to talk about some of that. But Lord it gets expensive! I need to get my butt over to eBay to sell some of these!

  1. I really like the color on “You.” The style is very nice but as mentioned above it does look a lot like Reese, but not quite as good.
    I would give this one an 8.
    I agree with you that you must see what you look like in a piece before buying. Up until now, I never purchased on line and always went to a salon to see what I actually looked like. Now, since I wear the same thing pretty much all the time, I can buy online and just shop price.
    Again, love the nails.
    Great video. It’s nice to hear some negatives rather than all positives, as in advertising.

    • You have a good rating system going! I may have to steal that. When I was getting my master’s in counseling, one of the best tips I got was to ask students to rate their emotions on a scale from 1-10, or 1-5, whatever. It REALLY works to get an idea of where they are at, and it helps them understand it too. In fact, I use with kids in all sorts of ways now – “on a scale of 1-10, how likely are you to complete that project over the weekend?” LOL.

      I will upload the Reese next, and I think you can really see the difference. It’s not ready for prime-time yet, though.

  2. As always, I enjoy your delightful and entertaining videos – you look so good in all of them. Is it the nails or your fine sculptured facial features tossed together with a great personality? Whatever it is, I love watching the videos, this hair color is great on you and leaves me wanting more videos…..I love seeing the different styles and your reviews are so helpful. Please keep it up, you really make my day!!
