    I do expect an adjustment period, of course, which is why I'm prepping for all these different ways of trying to keep it down/lay it flat. I expect I will have to see what works for me as I go. My mannequin set comes w a wig grip/t-pins/c needles/ weaving thread/table clamp stand. So I get to try the wig grip, and if its not my scene and I feel like I want to try an elastic band I will already have the materials to sew it in. I'll just need the band, which I already have an adjustable one picked out via etsy. Still the least invasive method of my choices is the got2b, i plan to use the just freeze spray, and then I'll go from there. Thankfully, in regard to sizing most of the reviews I watched say big head friendly. Essential to my somewhat robust head. @Penny, it is a long time to wear a wig! I'm absolutely not expecting it to go without its hiccups...that's why I'm here asking questions and bouncing ideas off people. I'm not scurred. I'm excited, and prepared. I'm also just doing this to cover up bright hair at work, so if its not my day I'll just carry a hat and shove it under that instead. :)

    Ill have to do a lot of seeing as I go since so much of this is preference, but as far as that's concerned I am famikiar with alternatives I might need. I have spoken to ppl w 23 in heads that love bobbi boss, and all the reviews i have watched say "big head friendly" but I really won't know how I feel about it til its on my noggin i suppose. I'll keep ya posted on its snugness.

    Thank you! Your opinions are helpful. I'm gonna get bobbi boss' Rea. She's a 360 front lace. I wanted something I could put up and take down so I was definately getting a 360, and I also like that its a human hair/synthetic blend. Plus people seem to like bobbi boss as a brand and that impacted my decision as well.
    This is an expensive hobby to get into, so I wanted something I can try that also isn't $200 right out of the gate....especially since I have no side supplies like a mannequin head. Shoot I still need to get more concealer to prep for her, and every girl should have some concealer on hand!
    I think I'm going to try a got2b method first. It seems to be very popular, and therefore it must be effective. The reason I considered the elastic band at all is bc its a 360, so if I'm gonna be putting it up extra security in the back would be good for that. One thing at a time tho. I think I'll stick to the got2b at first, and then if I need more security underneath go from there.
    I don't hold it against any facebook page for not answering me. They just become an unreliable source for info, that's all. I join those pages for imput and opinions, but on a visual note its still helpful as I can learn from others. I find when it comes to getting info that a forum that's based on the subject is almost always better. People are better at answering, their information is more reliable, and usually their more polite. Really I should stop wasting my time trying to get any sort of info off facebook. Lol.
