    Is that Hania? I think @MzLady78 was rocking that one too at one point.

    It is. I just discovered the wig a few weeks ago. I absolutely love it! It’s the perfect work wig.

    I may cut it into a short bob.

    Here is a pic of my current wig. It’s the Mommy wig by Janet Collection. I love it and compliments everywhere I go!

    This wig looks great on you! Great for the summer. This used to be my go-to - I had several.

    I have versions 1 & 2 which is a little longer. They are so versatile and fit my small head!

    Hania is my boo. I buy about 2-3 a month. Only problem I have with it is that the quality of the parting lace is not consistent. 2/3 of the time there is a bump/ripple that throws off the realistic-ness of the wig. Still, like some folks are hooked on lotto tickets, I keep buying new ones, hold my breath while unpacking, and then 2/3 times, facepalm.

    YES!!!! I tried everything to straighten that part. The lace is hard and I notice it sticks to my edges. Thankfully the wig grip helps some in that regard.

    But I do love this wig. I’m going to trim the hair a little bit and take some of the bulk out of it.

    Bright Meadow is suppose to be similiar to Hania.

    Thanks! I’ll check this out.

    Glad to know it’s not just me. Imagine how much money Outre would make it it fixed that lace thing! That Hania wig is otherwise so on point. I’ve been looking at alternatives, and will be getting a shipments of 6 different wigs next week:happydance:.:giggle:

    I’ll update with reviews.

    I wore it for the first time today. It's super cute. I love the cut.
    Cons- the cap feels small. I don't even have a big head but this wig is quite snug and gave me a but of a headache. It was on the loosest hook but I might unhook it completely to see if it's looser. Also it's quite shiny so I applied some baby powder to it. I'll wear it again tomorrow.

    It definitely looks fuller in person than it does in the videos. I need to learn how to thin it out so it's less full.

    I'm thinking about the first wig that she does in this video.

    I have this in black! It’s really cute I will post pics next time I wear her. It’s a little big on me.

    Have you tried adding an elastic band to the back of the wig so that it will fit snug?

    That's why I passed on hair too. The hair texture seems inconsistent from YT videos. On some people it had a yaki texture on others it was sleek. On some people it had side bangs and layers and on others it doesn't.

    This is Bobbi boss Lyna. So I've been wearing this for about two weeks and I love it. I applied baby powder to bring down the shine. But with wear the shine is reducing. I had to fold the ear tabs up because it was irritating my ears. Also I wear it with the hair behind my ear because it's cuter but also when I wear it straight down the hair closes like a curtains in front of my face and it's annoying.
    I did the foundation and got2b glued method to hide the grids and it worked wonderfully and looks realistic. I plan on washing it soon to keep it fresh. But I'm hoping this gets me through the summer.

    Okay, now I want this one:



    Lol the comments in this video are killing me. Apparently she made some comment about how she gets paid regardless whether she likes the wig or not (I skimmed through the video so I missed that part). And in the comments people are like "Then why do you need a gofundme for a new camera?" :lol: That video is from last year. I wonder if she ever got that camera.

    I'm going to seriously have to look into making my own wigs. I hate falling in love with a style on YouTube and then finding out it's not available in a specific color. :mad:

    OMG, I LOVE the first one! I love the color too, but I'm job hunting right now, might be too much.

    It's time to put my curly one away, it's getting too hot. And I think I want something that will allow me to better take care of my edges underneath.

    Yeah, it wasn't until the 3rd one that I bought that there was the side bang and layers. So weird.

    Oh yeah, I'll be back in October. I just like to wear my own hair during the summer, since it's so hot.

    Going to braid my hair for the summer. Not feeling my wigs in this 100 degree weather. I would wear my fro but I love braids as it’s a get up and go style.

    I’ll wear wigs in between installs.
