Pros: Rooted Sand Stone is dramatic, cap is extremely comfortable
Cons: Disappointing quality, style differs from stock photos (and not for the better)
I made no modifications to the out-of-box cut.
Style: Aubrey in the stock photos is feminine and sassy. My Aubrey looks like a boy cut. If the goal was asymmetry, the lengths don’t differ enough, so the result looks sloppy. I brush back the “shorter” side to emphasize asymmetry, which is problematic on a pixie because the right ear tab has exposed metal. The bangs are too long to wear down, and side-swept bangs are not typically flattering on my high, flat forehead. The back length on Aubrey is SHORT, which makes sense on a pixie, but be aware that you must really secure your own hair underneath.
Most of my wigs rely on permatease at the part—I’m no monofilament snob—but the part on Aubrey is unconvincing. This one looks like a wig. I’m also not confident of weft coverage. I’d think twice before ordering Aubrey in an unrooted blonde.
Color: Terrific! Rooted Sand Stone is high contrast. Heavy champagne highlighting over the brown base adds real eye appeal. Sand Stone might be a glamorous alternative to grey blends.
Fit: Aubrey is comfortable for all-day wear. My head circumference is 21.5 inches, and I’ve found the TOB cap size generous to even slightly loose, particularly at the crown. (This cap wouldn’t be my first choice on a windy day.)
Bottom line: Aubrey isn’t the style for me, but Rooted Sand Stone is so pretty…
