A better look at the quality, texture, colour and length
* Wig - Hair Passion - £12.99
You know I love wigs. From platinum blonde in an instant to extra length without the hassle or expense of extensions within seconds, a wig can change how I feel about a make-up look or an outfit. A wig can give me confidence or drain it.
I've been buying from Hair Passion for a while now and currently have four of their wigs (three purchased with my own money) so I feel I'm in a good position to talk about their products. This is the first straight wig I've bought from them and I love it. I usually stick to bouncy voluminous waves like the blonde wavy wig I wore for my 24th birthday a few weeks ago and beyond but I thought to really give my opinion I'd like to compare the light to the dark, the straight to the wavy.
Honestly, it's not worth a comparison. They're both made of soft, silky Kanekalon synthetic hair (no heat - they will fry), both have beautiful shine, both are thick and feel luxurious, both feel well made and sturdy on the head, both look realistic with a little brush through and some minor trimming to the fringes or styling and both last a decent amount of time. I say decent because I wear my wigs a lot with my average use of five times a week and they last without significant matting for two months plus. That is a lot considering I do tend to fall asleep in them, take them out in all weather conditions and have a habit of opening the oven with them on. Oops. Comparing two great products is a little redundant in this case.
The top photos are the before and afters and the bottom photo of the length is after I got caught in sleet. It does look a bit damp but there's no damage to it whatsoever and the best things about synthetic hair wigs is that they hold their style. I like to cover up the parting with a hat or hairband but it's absolutely not a necessity due to the fact it has an incredibly real looking silicone parting. You can adjust the size of the wig to fit your head but I will say that if you fit it too tight, it'll itch and give you a bit of a headache. Alas, we all do them up too tight to feel more secure the first few times. I like to grip mine with some bobby pins for extra security.
I'm not going to ramble more about how much I love wigs because I'm sure you all know by now but I am going to say that if you're a wig virgin, go buy one because at the steal of £12.99 for an extra long wig with some are even lower in price, it would be rude not to.
