okay!!

i did a you tube search and there you are.  i've looked at your other videos as well.  What do like about your tutorials/reviews?  you're not wordy, or trying to be funny.

your review on the wig was almost 2 mins.  Low key, straight forward.  love it..Wink

i watched someone else review the same damn wig?  5 mins.. not getting to the point and the "barking" put me off.

i hit the like button, for sure and of course, yes!  i'm already a subscriber.

Oprah Oprah Oprah...

I can't believe how many times i've seen this name thrown around in the wig industry.  Beverly Johnson has an "Oprah" wig, Vivica Fox has an "Oprah Wig" and The Vanessa Brand has an "Oprah" wig.. Plus, there are "Oprah" weaves.Confused

I decided to buy 2 different Oprah's and a straight wig:

Vivica Fox/Beverly Johnson are the same wig (oprah 2) with different names stitched into the cap.  It has loose curls, that are very soft/synthetic. Costs about $36-$38 dollars. Light cap, snug/comfortable fit, and a part in the front.

The Vanessa's version of "Oprah 2" is also synthetic made from kanekalon and is only $29.  This wig has more volume, with loose ringlets, vs. curls, part in the front. 

Both wigs are low lustre.. Which is a plus.

With the Vivica Fox wig, i had to "treat" it right after it was received.  It had to be spritzed with water/conditioner, and wig sprayed due to fly-away hair, and errant curls.

The Vanessa?  I just gave it a couple of short bursts of the Denman wig spray?  and wore it that night.

Though the Vanessa may be of lower quality, (the kanekalon is soft, but you can tell, this wig will not last as long as the other one), i enjoy wearing it more so than the more expensive brand of "Oprah 2"..

i mustalso add?

Black Hairspray did a great job. i used to lurk on this forum back in the day, and man, the reviews were so bad, i even hesitated to order the 2 wigs from this company.

i received an email, and a shipping confirmation within 24 hrs. and had my wigs w/in about 3-5 business days.

unfortunately, i tried to re-order 2 of the vanessa wigs, and of course, they put a 1 wig limit on it.


Thus, we'll if my other go-to wig store will come through..they just recently dropped the ball due to Chinese holiday..

Waiting for my purchase from Ebonyline to come in. I ordered Model Model's Berrytini, Mint Slice, another Freetress Runway Girl, a wig brush, and a ponytail. I really hope I like them!

hmmm..

after buying 2 straight wigs... Yaki Perm Straight, and Vivica Fox "Rumer"

There's something i'm noticing that i never considered in buying wigs.

The cap itself.  For some, this must be second nature.. After about a year or 2 of wearing them, i should have that knowledge under my belt by now.Ouch

the It's a Wig Yaki perm straight is pretty much the same texture and length as Vivica's. 

Vivica's is a bit on the silkier side which makes it harder to keep pinned up, especially with the layering.  The "It's Wig" is easier for pin up styles, as well as a ponytail.Smile

The Vivica Fox Bio-Form cap is what makes her wigs a bit more expensive.  Once that puppy is on your head, it's not going anywhere.  It's a full cap stretch..and very snug, light and so comfortable.  No pins needed.

The "It's Wig" cap is snug, at first, but after few wears, it tends to get a bit looser quicker.  thus, i use bobby pins to ensure it doesn't slide.  Wearing a Mesh wig cap is very helpful for this.  The holes in the mesh help to ensure the bobby pins will stay secured.

2 good wigs.  Vivica's is more expensive due to the wig cap/slightly silkier texture.

It's a Wigs is more affordable, with more versatility.  After a few wearings, slip in some bobby pins if it feels a little loose.

Haven't worn Outre's Sofia out yet but I brushed her out and tried her on and OH MY GOD!!! She is soft, long, perfect color, not too shiny, and gorgeous!!! If she holds up fairly well she may become one of my stable wigs. I might have to order her in bulk! lol

some one posted in this section about ordering wigs..

i did exactly as i told them, and guess what?  it works.

when ordering from wig shops, i had a tendency to choose one of the more popular colors: (#1b, #2 or #4.)  I also gave them the option of a SECOND CHOICE. #P24/7 #P/30.

What most wig companies will do? they'll send the 2nd option.

If you want only one color, put it also in THE SECOND OPTION BOX.

Either they have it, or they don't.

okay....

I was ready to order my Vanessa Oprah 2 from Sam's again.  and guess what?  The color i wanted is "Out of Stock".. 

The wig is on sale $29.99 - but it in colors that i can't wear.  It's either these wig stores will only have ONE in stock, or it's out of stock.

damn the bad luck!
