Video Wig Review: Urban Gypsy by Forever Young in Color TH6/M5/27

Welp, here it is. On the plus side, it’s not nearly as bad as Kell and it’s definitely not thin. In fact, it’s a ton of hair that when all left down looks rather shapeless and witch-like, at least on me. But it’s not awful like Kell was.

The other thing I noticed (but did not mention in the video because I didn’t realize it yet when I filmed it) is that the hair fiber frizzes and the curl falls with time. I actually made the video I’m sharing here right after taking Urban Gypsy out of the box, and the curl pattern was still well-formed. Two days later I filmed a second video because I didn’t like the color tone and quality of the first one, but unfortunately, the wig didn’t look as good because the hair was starting to frizz. I guess the curl pattern might stay better if you didn’t run your fingers through it and mess with it as much as I did, but I don’t see how that can be avoided when there’s so much hair here to deal with.

Here’s a comparison photo between the wig in the first video when it was right out of the box and the second video after I’d messed with a bit (and after I’d taken the little ponytail out of it, which definitely makes it look more wild):

Sorry for the crazy-face, just trying to show the difference in the wig

Overall the wig has potential, it at least isn’t horrid like Kell, it’s still over-priced even though it’s not terrible, and the hair fiber is probably going to be difficult to deal with. Oh, and the lace on this one is dark. So basically, it’s OK for a fun or occasional-wear/costume wig, but I wouldn’t expect much more out of it than that.

And I forgot to include the section of the video where I show the cap in the actual review, so it’s included separately underneath the original.

  1. The color is kind of nice, but overall, it’s a little lioness looking?
    Yeah, the front edge is a little dark.
    With your new nails you don’t need a comb or brush anymore. 🙂

  2. So happy to see this wig reviewed in the promo picture color!
    I had been contemplating purchasing it, knowing that once the $ is spent: no refunds.
    Well you saved me the trouble so, thank you, thank you very much!
    Although I do actually like it on you, I get what you mean about it being perhaps a bit too ‘young’ looking.
    I am also (just barely still LOL) in the 40 something age bracket which can be a challenge when wearing hair. Don’t want to wear a style that is too old looking or too young as both can age you tremendously……..
    Anyway, love your videos!
