    PM'd you. Look in your inbox. You can always mention the name of wig brands :) Those are acceptable. We keep asking wigs.com to stock Belle Tress, Henry Margu, and various other brands. It's a slow process.

    I havej just taken a peak at the website and the HM wigs seem to have a lot of hair ... is this so ... I like one of them but hard to tell if they are very thick or not.... and looking at the model and hair colour on her seems nothing like the colours on the colour swatchs

    Keep in mind that these wigs are primped and probably sprayed.Do you ever watch Taz of Taz's Wig Closet on YouTube? She reviews a lot of Margu wigs and you can see what they look like on a normal person.

    Yes I have watched Taz on Youtube and she is cute but again she likes to wear wigs with big hair ...lol There is another lady I watch on Youtube but have not seen her in any short wigs as yet, cant remember her name but she mainly does blonde wigs and has accent and I think she may be Polish or something like that I think her site is something like "Sugarfluff and stuff " or similar ..lol oh and of course i like to watch PP on Youtube .... that is why I liked the "EW start " but again what looks great on Pattie, may look terrible on me , so can only wait and see.

    You're right, the swatches aren't good indicators as to how the color actually looks, defintely find video reviews of which ever color you're considering. Some of the HM's do look like a lot of hair, which one are you looking at? I have Kendall, and it's a medium density, not too much hair, not for me at least. I had also ordered Brooklyn, which I ended up returning, the hair on Brooklyn was a lower, finer density. HM Scarlett also looks to be a finer density, so I think it depends on which style you're contemplating purchasing.

    I had to laugh at your comment on taz and big hair. I seriously just stopped watching her reviews other than to see colors because of how she styles her wigs. I like a little height in my hair but can't imagine wanting such fluffy hair!
    I love to watch interpretiveoption's reviews. She does a lot of short hair reviews. Also, a member of this forum, #crazywiglady, reviews a lot of short styles. Check those two out.

    Hi Vee, Its good to laugh and yes I did not think about colour from Taz as she seems to do mostly blondes and I am a brunette , but will check her out some more.... I do not think I have come across one called Interpretiveoption's reviews so I will go google for that one as they all do help in seeing not only the colour but another look at how the wig will look on someone who is not just a model who has had it all styled . Yes I have been on Crazywiglady reviews and because of one of her reviews I have purchased the EW "Ever mono" and hope to see it in about 3-4 weeks .
    I must admit thought that I have a few times liked the look of a wig and then looked at the reviews by some of the lady's and then I have been turned off of them lol.
    Hope your having a great day... thanks for all your info

    I know exactly what you mean when you talk about liking a wig in a review and then reading bad comments about it later. As much as I love to watch the reviews that Deb does I had to stop ordering a wig just because I liked it on her. It became obvious after two or three tries that most wigs do not fit to my face the same as they do to hers. What I mean is that the sides of some of the wigs go past her ears but nowhere near that length on me. I have to pay more attention to the stated dimensions in the description of the wig. I know now that for a side to reach past my earlobe it has to be at least 3 and 1/2 to 4 in Long.

    Deb shows two wigs in that video I posted above. One is in the color Champagne rooted and one in snow rooted. Have you looked at these colors much?

    I have looked at the champagne rooted. It looks much more ashy in her video. I don't like contrasting roots, only shadowed roots. As soon as someone buys my Love Love Love, I will buy the Intoxicating spice by BT in CwithAP.

    Morning Blossomandme, hope you are having a good week.

    I have been obsessed with "my hair, ie wigs" for years now. I have had a few health issues, and the line in the sand for me was my hair. No matter what, I was not going to look like I had been through the ringer, even tho I had, LOL.
    I have "my hair", I take spare hair with me whenever I go away, and I always have spare hair at home, just in case something goes wrong, or my hair I wear is discontinued. That spare hair gives me time to stop panicking, look around, and try some different styles.
    My husband is truly wonderful, I had hair mail arrive yesterday, and he was as eager as I was to check what had arrived :hearts:

    Misty your hubby sounds like a real keeper mine is pretty good too...lol.. I too have had health issues for the last 15 years and that has what caused my hair to start thinning... and my health issues are progressive so I can only go downhill ... but I try to keep a smile on my face and laugh as much as possible as I feel that is they only way I can keep myself from feeling sorry for myself..
    and now that I have found this site and all the wonderful people on it who are so helpfull they all make me happy too..
    So tell me did you purchase something new online or is this from Brisbane.. and I think you are very smart in keeping extra wigs that are one's that you like , as if they were to discontinue it would be a nightmare.

    Hi Vee, I bought two more Zara's (Jon Renau) in 24B22. This is my "go to" style, and I feel really comfortable wearing them. Because of the length and lace front they might not last as long as other shorter styles, but I love :heart:
    I wore 27T613F over winter, and have gone back to my 24B22 for our warmer months, I pulled out my 27T613F and tried it on yesterday, and I thought "How did I wear this, it is too dark". So funny.
    I am going to open my HM Violet wig this weekend, and have a play. I bought this almost 10 -12 months ago, and have not been able to get it to look right. Maybe this weekend :hearts: We are home this weekend, so I am going to have a few hours to play with my hair LOL.

    Hi Blossomandme, it helps when your partner is supportive, doesn't it? So sorry to hear your health issues are progressive. Life can be so unkind sometimes. To keep positive is truly the answer, it does lighten the load for yourself and everyone around. Sending heaps of positive energy your way :hearts:
    I bought my Zara's online, at sale, with a great postage deal. I had been thinking of trying JR Sarah, but I tried that on in the Brisbane store, it didn't suit me at all. At first I wondered if it was just the colour that put me off, they only had it in the colour 4, which is a really really dark brown. I looked shocking in it! Definitely made me think I will stick with Zara xx

    I am so sorry to hear of your health issues. It is not always easy to smile through the hard times life throws at us. So many of the wonderful women here have faced or are facing similar life challenges and it is very humbling to see how bravely those hard times are faced. But, we come here and we talk of hair and wigs and styles and colors and we cheer each other own. I'm so happy you found us here.

    I really miss everyone having their profile pictures here. It was so much easier to remember then everyone's favorite styles! As soon as you mentioned Zara of course I remembered your picture with it on. I'm really surprised that you don't care for the Sarah since I thought it was basically Zara with a body wave. Maybe it was just the color. I've shockedd myself with the wrong color before and know that if a wig is really too dark, or too ashy, or too light it is absolutely going to look horrible on you no matter how much you like the style in the right color. Maybe you'll get the chance to try it someday in a better color.

    Vee, measuring from ear to ear was how I discovered I am a small cap rather than large (and average usually fits me just fine). My measurement there is 11-something. Very little brain I guess :)

    Hi Vee, I thought the Sarah was pretty well the same as Zara too, just with a body wave. Yes, the colour was absolutely horrid on me, really dreadful. The Sarah they had in the store was very off-putting, extremely curly and only came down to the top of my shoulders. Very different to what I have seen on line, or what #Ali looks like in her Sarah (she looks gorgeous, and so natural). The wig I tried on had JR tags, however this store in Brisbane does not keep the wigs in their own JR boxes. Beginning to wonder if it was Sarah? Oh well.
    Moonlitnight, love to hear what you think of Zara. I hope the 24B22 is not too gold for you? The 22 colour is light ash blonde, which is really pretty highlights.
  • Moonlitnight

    Good morning! :) I don't mind a little gold. I sent it back before but am probably a little more tolerant now. When I first started with wigs, I thought I could find a platinum, but that isn't the case. Sarah is long. I bet the wig you tried wasn't a Sarah. Maybe Heidi with the wrong label. I have the JR colour ring but 24B22 is missing. That is weird as it's not a new colour. Maybe it is in the bottom of my drawer. I sometimes take colours off to test them against Biscuit and in different lights.
  • Misty
    396
    Yes, now I am over the shock, I don't think it could have been Sarah. This wig shop cuts off the tags, so you don't know the colour or style, and I really think they got it wrong It wasn't a body wave, it was quite tight curls, so different, and definitely not me! I just looked at Sarah again on wigs.com, and definitely not the hair I tried on.
    The colour 24B22 has been around for a long time LOL. I really hope you love Zara :hearts:

    Looks like I should have brushed my hair first LOL, before taking the photos. I wanted to do a close up so you could see the blend. With the three photos, the very first (single, looks like rooted) photo was taken outside in light, the second photo was taken in full bright sun, and the last in shade. Hope this makes sense.
    Wow 20,000 steps is very good. I average around 10,000 - 12,000 depending on what the day brings. Enjoy your walk with your lovely puppy dogs.

    Hi Misty I just came across this post with your three pictures in it.... my goodness they all look like different colours ... lighting is so hard to show the right colour ... so which one do you say is the closest to the wig First one here on my monitor looks a very pale ash blonde, the second looks more golden, and the last pic looks darker...
  • Misty

    Hi Blossomandme, I think the first photo is the closest to its true colour, however it is strange to see it almost looks rooted, as it is not. Sometimes I get almost a shadow where the part is, and I think that is the way the light reflects on the highlighs.
    For a while there, my sister and I wore this same colour, and it looked totally different on both of us. Our skin colours changed the way it looked, very strange, LOL.
