ISIS Brown Sugar Tahiti BS503 wig bag

The first thing I said when I put this unit on was WOW! The hair fell down to my waist and the curl pattern is just stunning!

So here’s what you’re going to love about this unit….

1. The curl pattern pattern

ISIS Brown Sugar Tahiti BS503 wigJust look at it…need I say more? I am totally in love with it and the texture reminds me of a picture of India O’Neill wearing The Vanity Box’s Malaysian Curly bundles when brushed out.

2. The length and cut

ISIS Brown Sugar Tahiti BS503 OK so you may or may not love the Rapunzel length hair but I love it! No, I’m not going to wear it to the office but it’s definitely an out-of-work-show-stopper. It’s also already layered.

 

 

 

 

 

3. You can straighten it

Tahiti BS503 is a human hair style mix, meaning it’s 100% human hair mixed with a proprietary fabricated texture. My Vienna BS505 unit is made of the same texture and I was able to straighten it on the lowest setting on my hair straighteners (310F).

4. The price

ISIS Brown Sugar Tahiti BS503 reviewFor hair that looks like it cost you $300 for three bundles and a closure a $50-something price tag is really good!

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Big head friendliness 

ISIS Brown Sugar Tahiti BS503 cap constructionBrown Sugar collection wigs are always quite roomy and Tahiti is no different. This unit fits comfortably on my head and it has combs and straps that I can use to tighten/ secure it even further if I need to.

 

 

 

 

Here’s what you might want to change…

1. The knots

ISIS Brown Sugar Tahiti BS503 knotsUnfortunately, you can see the knots on the lace parting space. It’s knot a huge deal (see what I did there…?) because the hair is so big that once you do a flip over you can’t see them anyway. Note: As the hair isn’t 100% human I would not recommend attempting to bleach it.

 

 

 

 

2. Tangles…maybe?!

It hasn’t tangled yet, but my Brown Sugar Vienna did and it’s made of the same texture. The curl patterns are different though so we’ll see…

All in all…

Up until this point my favorite curly unit was the Outre Batik Peruvian lace front wig. However, that has now changed, the Tahiti BS503 is my favorite curly unit right now. I’m so in love. Let’s see how the curls hold up…

What you’re going to LOVE about this unit… 

1, The colour

I’m always more of a brunette, black or blonde kind of girl but I wanted to do something different for Fall 2016 – and OMG I love this shade. The TT1B/RPUR has dark roots so it matches perfectly when I leave a little of my baby hair out. It’s also this stunning combination of red and purple, which gives it great depth.

2, The swiss lace and parting space

Bobbi Boss Mercury MLF160 Review

If my edges could talk they would say that ‘swiss lace is what dreams are made of’. I can wear this unit all day and the lace feels super soft and not scratchy like hard lace. The lace does not bunch up on me either. The parting space is an awesome 4″ by 4″ too!

 

 

 

 

 

3, The style

Bobbi Boss MLF160 Mercury

You’ll want to brush this unit out when you first get it to get rid of the perfect looking curls. But once you do you’ll be left with gorgeous loose waves.

Just to let you know I love my silky and my yaki wigs and you’ll find that Mercury is silky.

 

 

 

 

4, Cap construction

There are two combs in the front on either side of the part and another at the back. This unit also has adjustable straps.

 

5, No tangling or shedding 

So far I haven’t noticed any of either, which is fab!

 

What you might want to change.. 

1, Big head friendliness

Yes, my head is on the bigger size. And, yes, I can be lazy when it comes to slapping on my wigs. I like to just put my hair in two canerows and shove it under my wig cap and wig. However, for me to wear Bobbi Boss MLF160 Mercury I did have to canerow (or if you’re American, cornrow) my hair in more than two so that it was flatter. However, once the unit was on it was snug without being tight – and I’m pretty sure that I could do a decent up-do with it.

 

All in all… 

I love this unit and can’t wait to rock it over the next few months!

Outre Batik Peruvian Lace Front Wig : A Review

Outre Synthetic Lace Front Wig L Part Batik Peruvian Bundle Hair

Wig: Outre Synthetic Lace Front Wig L Part Batik Peruvian Bundle Hair

Colour: S4/30

Curly Wurly 

I absolutely love big bouncy curls and I have been dying to go curly for a while now.  I actually bought a blonde curly wig from AliExpress a few months ago and while it looked fabulous in pictures it was way too big in person! I couldn’t wear it out. I wanted to find something that looked natural without breaking bank. Outre’s Batik Peruvian Bundle Hair Wig is almost the perfect curly wurly wig!

 

First impressions… 

I ordered the wig from sistawigs.com. It came to $28.74 (Wig=$22.99, Shipping within US=$8.05, Coupon Code=Nicole which took 10% off). Overall that’s not a bad price.

Above are the contents of the wig shipment. Sistawigs send out a free wig cap with their wigs, which is good as my current one has holes in it…

Care guide Outre Synthetic Lace Front Wig L Part Batik Peruvian Bundle Hair

Here’s a copy of the care guide.

 

So the first things that I notice when I put the wig on are: 

  1. This hair is SO SOFT! It doesn’t feel synthetic at all. It feels human.
  2. The hair is ridiculously long and is in desperate need of a cut.

 

hair is too full Outre Synthetic Lace Front Wig L Part Batik Peruvian Bundle Hair

Too much hair!

Outre Synthetic Lace Front Wig L Part Batik Peruvian Bundle Hair

In my opinion the length of the hair made it look like it wasn’t mine. Come on we don’t wear wigs because we want them to look wiggy.  The hair texture and colour was so realistic but I had to pull my scissors out and give it a cut.

Terrible quality but this picture shows you how much I cut off

As you can see I cut a fair bit off this wig. First I just went straight across with the scissors and then I took it off put it on my idea of a wig head (a large shampoo bottle at the end of a table…my usual styrofoam wig head is in England) and then cut some layers into it so the hair didn’t look so heavy.

 

Realistic or nah?

The L part

 

Outre’s Batik Peruvian Bundle Hair Wig has a fantastic deep part. Above is a picture of it before I’ve done anything to it. No plucking and no powder. I love the ample parting space, and think the wig looks great worn with the part (and with powder), but I do prefer to flip the hair over so there’s no part at all. I still need to work out just the right amount of ‘flip’ so that I don’t have to have my neck crooked though…haha.

Flip over method

I’m a big fan of the colour 4. It’s a great deep chocolate brown that I think works really well with my skin tone especially in the winter time when I’m a bit paler. Coupled with the 30, in the S4/30, the depth of colour in the wig is fantastic and looks so natural.

S4/30

The wig holds well without any combs but there are three in there if you want to use them. Also I should mention that this wig is big head friendly! I have a bit of a large coconut and it fits comfortably with my hair braided underneath.

Three combs. Two at the front and one at the back.

 

All in all… 

This is a fantastic wig once you’ve done a bit of work to do. Give it a good trim, powder the part or flip it over and you’ve got a great new look. The hair texture and colour is super natural and you are bound to turn a few heads.
