This wig has a really pretty curl pattern to it. You could change it since it's heat friendly, but I am happy with it as is. Frames my face nicely. It doesn't have any of the fake shine to it, and actually, that's why I like heat friendly wigs. It has a nice sheen to it, but no shiny stuff. I got the color Mocha with Cream. Gorgeous. The colors of the highlights are many and varied, nice shades of caramel brown, golden blond, light brown and just a touch of red (very little) The highlighting is very well done, no "piano" highlights, very well spaced. With all the highlights, it still looks like a highlighted brown. It's light, but it doesn't look blond to me. I like that, I don't think I look good as a blond, but this is light enough that it brightens up my face. It fits well and feels comfortable. The only thing I don't like about this wig is that the root color is so dark, but most of them are. I wish they would go to a lighter shade of brown for the roots. Other than that, which I can live with, I love this wig. Looks like you spent 12 hours at the salon! (It did have an odd smell to it, but all that took was a wash) Great wig.
