I bought two of these ... Glazed Auburn (my favorite of the two) and Glazed Black Cherry, they're my first "short" wigs. I have had these for about 6-7 weeks or so and have not used heat on either of them. They look nice to me, without having to style in that way. I was, however, hoping a little bit (just a smidge!) for an "instant" Lisa Rhinna type look (similar to the model) out of the box, but I'll have to learn how to style it in this way on my own. I'm pleased with these, they are beautiful colors and very easy to wear and wash.
