Don't sleep on Amazon, sis. I buy a lot of hair from there. And these lace wigs are getting good reviews! I'm working my way over to lace wigs but I've got a closet full of wigs to go through first. Lol





And this curly bob is cute too!

I will definitely be getting a wig from amazon. Completely forgot they sell everything anyways lol.

i dropped the wig off yesterday for her to bleach and stuff.
she will be doing it tomorrow night & she charging me $100 for a wig install.

oooohh, I can't wait to see.

And OMG, I'm so slow. I never thought of going to someone to have my wig installed. Didn't even cross my mind. THAT might be worth the money! The idea of being able to wash, DC and braiding down my own hair and then pay someone to do a professional install would be the perfect alternative to getting a weave sew in or me doing a shotty install for long term PSing. Do you mind sharing how about much that service usually costs? :blush2:

Does anyone else do this too?? Can you guys please share how much that costs for you and how your experiences have been?

the wig was longer than expected but it was 12 inches.
she cut it shorter for me and only plucked the middle part and added makeup to it
overall i like the wig, it has some fly aways and i used a product to keep them down, now the hair is kinda shiny i'm going to use a dry shampoo to wash it. i could probably work this look for 3 weeks.

I'd like to join the challenge.
My hair is natural. Bsl when straight. Thinning. I think I'm going to buy a Hairlivi Kylie bob. This will be my first wig. I just want a M-F wig for work during the winter. I'll see how it goes.

Updating here too:

So I bought this u-wig back in Feb 2018 and never installed it. I think I'm going to rock this instead of wearing my actual hair out. This will be my first time doing a PS with leave out. If I like it, I'll be buying more half wigs! *fingers crossed*



Janet Collection Retro Glam U-type Wig

Off to YT I go to watch some vids... LOL

So I just did my first wig sew down with the u-type wig. It feels secure enough for my laid back SAHM life. Little one has not done any hair pulling so we're all good. I was really nervous because I didn't realize that I had bought his wig in 1B and I'm a 2 or 4. But I didn't leave much hair out so that I wouldn't have to worry about blending it more. It's close in length to my hair and I love the shape of it. It has great layers.

I forgot to post pix here so here. Remember, I'm a novice. :blush2:

I know, right! I got it in red. I can't wait until it gets here! Samsbeauty packages usually get to me in two days but today is Friday.
You and your red! Didn't we talk about you rocking a red wig for Valentine's Day? Did you ever post a pic of your red wig? I'd love to see them, only if you're comfortable. :blush2:

Lol I don't even remember what I wore for Valentine's Day. I think you're talking about Brielle, which I did post either in this thread or the 2018 one. I forget when I bought it. That one was more of a copper red, these are more burgundy.

Okay so I just tried on Terri and I am not a fan. First of all, the hair tangles something awful. Second, the cap is both too loose and too small at the same time. I can't explain it. Third of all, the bangs are too straight. They have no bump or curvature to them at all. They were literally sitting against my forehead like this:

Don't get me wrong, it looks cute but I wear synthetic wigs so that I don't have to do this much work to fix them. If I wanted to do all of this, I would be wearing human hair. This is so annoying.

I will say that my experience doesn't match up with most of the videos I watched, so it may just be my unit. A YouTuber that I trust said she loved hers but it was easier to style on a mannequin head then put on. I don't own a wig head, so...
Get you a styrofoam wig head. It’ll make your life a little easier.
