I have been wearing this wig for the last 2 months and I love the way it looks. It's not lace so it can go behind the hairline and blend with type 4 hair. My only issue is that it has 1 small comb in the middle of the front that be holding on for dear life. This wig has given my edges a much needed break but if I buy another one I'll have to sew combs in.
Girl, thank you for this review. I've wanted this wig for a hot minute and was wondering if it was as realistic as it looks.

I also wonder if Sensationnel Zena is the longer version of it?:scratchchin: I'm leaning towards yes

I just ordered that last night!! I got the color F1b/30. Can't wait to get it. I'm relaxed with long hair so this finna be a struggle. I think I'll perm rod the front of my hair to get it to spiral. I'm excited to get it!
I'm still enjoying wigs. I'll rock this vella vella boince bob till December if it holds up. Planning to but a good quality human hair wig for the new year. It will be my first human hair wig ever. I'm debating between buying high quality bundles and closure and making the wig or just buying the wig straight out

So. I got the vella vella bounce bob and it was a train wreck. Its the same reason I dislike Hania wig. The wig is so inconsistent person to person. Mines is very high. Like at the crown it goes up damn near 4 inches for no reason. Ive been cutting and fluffing and cutting some more. I still havent worn it yet. But i needed a wig but didnt want to buy another one. So I decided to remix my Freetress justice and cut it into a wavy bob. It was getting raggedy and im dont with long synthetic so I might as well cut it into a bob. It came out so cute! I added layers, learned point cutting on youtube and tried it and it came out great and curls to the front and it looks real good. Then I had an epiphany. originally i was looking for a brown bob and I couldnt find it. So next time ill just order a brown long wig and cut it into a bob.

I purchased the Vella vella bounce. I love the feel of it and the look. Its just not sitting right in my crown. I have to figure it out.
Thanks @shawnyblazes

Very nice but could you take a picture of the whole wig from the top of your head as well please. That determines if I'm interested in it.

If it looks too wiggy at the top near the hairline, I'll pass. If it doesn't, I'll possibly look into getting it.

Me: I want to take a break from wigs and try braids or something.

Also me: *very tenderheaded and lacking the patience to sit for 6+ hours to get my hair done* NOPE.

6 hours? No ma’am! Find someone who can do it in 3 hours or less. They are out there. Trust me.

I can’t help you with being tender headed, though.

My favorite wig got discontinued, and I went looking for a replacement. I found one at my local BSS. I'm not in love with it, but it is actually better in some ways. The cap is generous and covers more at the sides and nape. I can put it in a realistic-looking ponytail. The hair is light-weight and textured. The only problem is that I think it looks wiggy at the crown. Other people have told me it looks natural. I decided to keep it, and buy two more just in case it gets discontinued, but the BSS didn't have anymore in the same color. 4. I looked online, and no place has the color I want. Ugh. I asked the BSS to order it for me.

I saw a video of a girl sewing her wig down. She said she takes it down each week, takes care of her hair, and then sews it again for the next week. Does anyone here sew the wig down? I haven't tried this.

Thanks! I've never worn anything by Vella Vella before but this is the second time I've fallen in love with something of theirs that was posted in this thread. I might have to do a mini-haul soon.

What's the other Vella Vella wig u like? I have bounce one.

samsbeauty.com is having a big sale right now until the 28th!

Okay, so they don't carry Vella Vella wigs but they do have Fab Fringe which was originally on my list before Alexis anyway. So... I'm getting it. And still getting Alexis somewhere else. And since I still have to wear Uma, this might just be a pixie cut kind of winter.

I ordered three wigs total. Alexis in 1B, Fab Fringe in Caramel, and Outre Brielle in DRCRD.

I added another to my wish list, Sensationnel Trissa. She'll probably be my holiday wig. But I can't decide between two colors for that one.

I don't like the color on Fab Fringe but I'm not paying return shipping on a $15 wig. Since that unit is human hair I'll try to dye it and if that fails then it was only $15.

Alexis is just as cute as I thought she'd be. The back is a little too long, and I have to get the hang of styling it but it's so cute.

Brielle is beautiful!!! :love: The copper red color is off the chain! As soon as I saw it I thought of @Chicoro and her red wig.
