Amenda by Soul Tress in Color #1010

Amenda by Soul Tress in Color #1010 is a long straight wig with a traditional wefted cap–no permatease, and side skin part which has a small zig-zag that cannot be combed out, however, the “skin” color is not visible.  The hair fiber feels more like Kanekalon fiber and after I trimmed the length it seemed to tangle more and become frizzy in the back.  It’s not smooth like Vivica’s Futura fiber and it’s also a bit shiny.  The color is beautiful though, it’s light golden brown with dark gold blond and light blond highlights.

I believe the second picture showing the back of the wig is the original length and all other pics are after it was trimmed.

Glow Girl by Forever Young in I Heart Espresso and 24B/27C

Glow Girl by Forever Young in I Heart Espresso has a white skin, side part with a traditional cap.  A skin part is where the hair at the part is machine sewn into a 3 inch long oval piece of plastic which is inserted into the cap and covered with lace on the inside.  Forever Young wigs have a light color plastic for white girls; African-American wigs are made the same but the plastic is usually dark to match skin color.

Forever Young wigs are not expensive and most of their colors look natural.  Diana’s color, I Heart Espresso, is beautiful, very natural and not too shiny at all.

I purchased Glow Girl in 24B/27C and it is a light butterscotch blonde (24B) at the tips with strawberry (27C) and butterscotch (24B) blended together in the top 3/4’s of the wig.  In my opinion this color is shiny and not very natural looking.  The Forever Young hair fiber is not Kanekalon–it seems very similar to African-American wig hair fiber, which is a little smoother, shinier, hotter and heavier than Kanekalon fiber…but it does not tangle easily.

Forever Young wigs are well made, with fashion forward styles and well worth the money for a skin part wig.  Here’s another Forever Young wig–British Candy.

Bliss by Vivica Fox in P2216

Bliss by Vivica Fox in P2216 has a full handmade, hand-tied, full stretch cap with a skin part.  Her hair fiber is very silky smooth and does not tangle, but the hair is hot on my neck and I can’t wear it all day.  For me, this is not a summer wig.  The P2216 color is the same as Leni’s which is caramel and apricot and it is not shiny.  The first picture is accurate as far as color; the second has a light shining on it making it look more blonde than it is.  Vivica’s hand stitched caps are light, airy and very comfortable and give the hair good movement.  This is a great wig for the price!

Hunter by Rene of Paris in Strawberry Swirl

Hunter is a hot mess!!  She is discontinued and I got her on clearance for about $70 and I think that’s still way more than it’s worth!  I was on a new website and I had a memory lapse or something, and I thought that I was getting Kendall which has a mono top but is also being discontinued, so I got all excited and ordered it right away instead of discussing it with my partner.  So, that’s what I get for being in a hurry!  I wore it for barely one hour in the house.  Diana and I have a rule that we don’t buy a wig on the spur of the moment; we view the wig at different wig stores and discuss the wig and the colors first.  However, in my defense, I have been looking at Kendall for a long time…I think what screwed me up is that they both sound like boy names to me…oh well, you live, you learn!

So, back to Hunter.  She has an open wefted cap, the hair on the crown comes out forward, towards your face and if you try to comb it back the wefts open up, and the hair on top is a little sparse.  I do not like the curl pattern in the front of the wig and the back of the wig has a see-thru spot on top.  Strawberry Swirl is a pretty color but the hair fiber is very shiny.  I can’t think of one good thing to say about this wig.  Do not buy it!  If you want to try it that bad I’ll give you mine for the price of postage.

Joanna by Vivica Fox in P2217

Joanna by Vivica Fox in P2217 is a beautiful shoulder length curly style wig with a full head of hair.  She comes out of the box with her hair clipped up in the back.  She has a traditional wefted cap with a two-inch deep hand-stitched lace front and curling iron safe Futura hair fiber.  The hair fiber doesn’t seem that silky to me but that’s probably because of the curls and the heat safe fiber; she is not shiny at all and has good movement.  Joanna came with lace that extended a couple of inches past the hairline and I cut it all the way back to the edge because the beige lace was too noticeable on my white skin, and it’s still too noticeable for me so I have never worn this wig out of the house.  The P2216 in this wig is different from Leni’s P2216 (because I just found out it’s not P2216, it’s P2217 even though I ordered P2216 and the box says P2216).  It’s medium brown and caramel with blond and apricot highlights and the color looks a little better on me than Leni’s caramel and apricot color.  Joanna is a very well made, wonderful wig for the price.

Leni by Vivica Fox in P2216

Leni by Vivica Fox in P2216 has a total stretch cap and is 100% handmade with Futura hair fiber.  There is a small skin part that’s barely visible.  She is very light and airy, has good movement, is soft and silky and does not tangle at all.  This is a great summer wig!  P2216 is, um…is a more saturated color??  I’m having a hard time describing it.  It’s a dark caramel base with yellow/apricot highlights and it’s not shiny.  The tone doesn’t quite go with my pink/white skin.  It looks better on Diana because her skin is slightly olive.  Overall it’s a nice wig for the price.
