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.
