Beginner Wig Review: Thoughts on Must Have Lace Front Hair
Hair is such a fun creative outlet especially when changing up your look. Exploring loose hair wigs has become a part of my routine again, with my last time wearing one around 2015.

I purchased the Outre Perfect Hairline Lace Wig. Described as a fully hand-tied 13"X 4" heat resistant fiber unit in the style Patrice-color DR Chocolate Swirl. Featuring a real scalp illusion, reduced lace grid lines, ear-to-ear soft HD transparent lace, pre-plucked hairline with natural baby hair and a pre-attached elastic band.
The cost $59.99 at my local beauty supply store. You can also find it online from many hair supplier websites for a little cheaper with a variety of colors for this particular wig. The Outre line has been reviewed by many on Youtube and it inspired me to try this wig.
The packaging of the unit is very eye-catching with pink and blue colors and the model is wearing the wig in a center, right and braid top part in a variety of colors.
Applying the wig was simple, I wear a flesh colored wig cap and apply my loose foundation powder on the inside of the lace to better match my skintone. I cut the lace while wearing the wig, but you can also purchase a wig stand to cut before applying.
Now for my critiques on the wig, it was a little long on the sides for my personal taste, so I did trim some of the pieces off. This could be tricky for someone who is unfamiliar with DIY hairstyling or uncomfortable with using scissors. But you can wear the unit without cutting it. I applied foam wrap near the top crown area to make the hair lay flat. An alternative is using a hot-comb to lay down the wig, which is safe up to 400 degrees.
I used edge control to lay the baby hairs. I opted not to use glue to secure the wig, instead a few bobby pins to hold it down. The wig did have shedding and fly aways. The faux scalp on the inside seemed a little unnecessary and I know many ladies who have reviewed this particular wig removed it. I left it in but recently I purchased an Outre Melted Hairline wig, which they designed without the faux scalp. You can read that blog review here: Chocolate Truffle Fall Season Wig
Overall, I would wear Patrice for a date or night out for friends. Synthetic fiber wigs have come a long way over the years, giving people a more stylish and affordable option for hairstyles. I would recommend this particular wig for someone wanting to try a wig.
