I’m using this wig to practice classic male hairstyles (think French Revolution). Im still learning the intricacies of the styles (hello, challenge!), but this is a great length for male hair of the period and a nice grey color to really sell the “powdered wig” look. While the unit comes with loose wave/curls, I took a steamer to it and straightened it out. It takes steam and hot tools quite nicely, and the front lace is soft and blends beautifully on my skin. Im very happy with this wig and will likely buy it (and others) from this company again!
