an aliexpress vendor uses a celebrity or someone from an AV site to market their hair?

I really want this kinky curly hair, it's the best I've seen on aliexpress. It looks like it'll blend perfectly, no problem. But for some of their pictures (there wigs mainly) they like to use celebs and then for a few other products they used girls. One of the girls I couldn't find on the google image search, but for the other girl - she was from ONYC (those were the only two I tried, but most of the wig images are on a mannequin head) and one is definitely a youtuber.
I haven't slept because I've been up all night searching for hair... and I've been trying to find reviews and/or complaints about this company. I haven't found any complaints, but I found one review on here, and it was a positive one. 
Do you think this makes it a definite No-No?
Should I ask for a picture of the hair they will send me before I purchase it? 
To determine whether or not they actually have this hair, etc. And I'll definitely be asking whether or not I can use paypal, so if they do send me sh*t hair, I could probably get my money back.
(For now I'm going to keep searching, because I don't even have money, like at all, until two weeks, so I have all that time to make a decision)

UGHHHH, so I decided to copy & paste the hair into google, and google found ONE match. Only One and it was another vendor on Aliexpress but for some reason it was in French... but I went to the english site. Not sure which one stole it from which or if they both stole it. I'm so sad right now... 

ETA: Although the picture of the hair linked to that shop only, the picture of that hair is no where to be found on the shop... maybe it was a google images mistake?

Another thing, I found this company, by looking for kinky curl hair (although unfortunately the hair they're calling kinky curly looks like a deep deep wave or w/e Idk the terminolog)

It looks so legit. First of all, all their pictures match. They use like a tablecloth or something so all the pictures are on this table cloth, but you can tell it's not just a background because every shot is different. (They also used no people -  no celebs/or youtube gurus/etc. Just the hair)

And the reviews are legit reviews... not just "Excellent" and "Good" people are actually giving critical feed back, but it's not a well known company... I want to order from it, but I really want kinky curly hair because I want to make a u-part and I don't like using heat.

But maybe I'll order from them in the future... does that sound like it might be pretty trustworthy?

Not necessarily unless they have absolutely no pics of their own. I would probably ask the vendor if they can send your pics of their actual hair.
