Sincere, long-lasting love, though it wasn't at first sight
Victoria, in 12fs8, has been my go-to summer wig for 3 years. Just bought my second one--wonderful cysterwigs clearance sale. At first, Victoria confounded me. It's a totally hand-tied cap, which I love, yet without an extended nape, which I prefer. I thought it was a very plain style, not very flattering, yet the comfort level was so fabulous that I found myself reaching for it time and again in hot weather. And it wore like iron. After three years in difficult weather, it's still presentable. Time for a replacement: To rebuy an expensive wig or try a new one--or at least a new color? That was the question. After searching my wigged-out soul, I went for a replacement. Now that I know how to use "product" to bring out "texture" in hair (that is now that I'm a longtime, daily wig-wearer who watches youtube reviews!), I'm thrilled with Victoria. I use Jon Renau products--the gel, the hair spray-- to encourage a bit of volume, and I sometimes wear a nifty headband. Instead of cutting wispy bangs, as I did with my first Victoria, i've become comfortable showing that lacefront and even that dark root of 12fs8, making Victoria more elegant, snazzy, and flattering. This is a wig that can be worn out of the box or zipped up with product. It's a daily look, a very convincing look for a mature woman, or someone much younger. It's easy. It moves. It wears and wears. I truly love it.
