Ok, so we all watch The View right? Right?!?!? If you don’t then you definitely should. Anywho, if you watch the show or know anything about Sherri Shepherd you know she loves hair. All kinds! Short, long, big, straight, black and bold. She is a wig fanatic so naturally (and about time) she created her very own wig line with LUXHAIR! And lucky me I got to try one.
Curl Intense in Copper Red & Medium Auburn
So technically I’m natural but I love weaves and wigs. The bolder the better! At first I wanted this wig….
The Goddess Waves. Isn’t she beautiful?! Well that one wasn’t available so I persuaded myself to try a new style. I love long, wavy hair. And I mean long, like all down my back. I’ve always thought styles like Curl Intense were cute but I was scared of them. Short and big?! I definitely thought those styles wouldn’t look right on me. What a pleasant surprise, look how cute it is on me!
I really like this wig for a lot of reasons. The first one being is the color. The burnt, reddish-orange looks great! I never buy brightish colored wigs because the color never looks realistic to me. This hair has some beautifully mixed color. It’s the perfect length for me, it’s a bit shorter right out the box but I pulled down the curls and stretched it a little. The biggest surprise to me was probably how well the wig is constructed. It fits snug, there’s straps so you can loosen and tighten it. I can shake it all I want without fear it’ll go flying off. I also haven’t seen a single strand of hair on my clothes or on the floor yet. No shedding is great sign. I normally get shedding right out the box with wigs and weave, human and synthetic hair. *Tip* You can always tell what’s a good synthetic wig by how it handles heat. You can put styling tools on this hair up to 320 degrees. While I wouldn’t straighten this hair in any way, I can use a wand to redefine the curls if I need to. You can even wash it.
PAUSE! Me giving life while writing this.
Really curly hair is temperamental, less manipulation is more. Out the box I just stretched out the curls a little and lightly finger combed it, I noticed the more I played with it the bigger and less defined the curls were. If you get this wig just shake it out and go. Less is definitely more.
There is lace around the front that needs to be cut off. If you’ve never worn a lace wig or closure just carefully cut it off to avoid cutting the hair. With this style of wig you’ll either have to blend your foundation into the edges so you won’t see where the lace starts to avoid it looking like all wiggy. Or you can place the wig behind your edges then gel and brush your edges into the hair for a more natural look. That’s how I wear my wigs.
Sherri Shepherd and LUXHAIR definitely did well with Curl Intense. If all the other styles, 12 as of now, are made like this one they have an awesome line. Sherri Shepherd will be appearing on QVC May 17th to showcase her LUXHAIR NOW by Sherri Shepherd collection, so make sure you check it out. As for now you can check out all the other styles and shades available at Luxhair.com
*ONE MORE TIP* Always try on wigs while wearing makeup, it makes a big difference on you see it on yourself.
