Vivica Fox Lace Front Wig Olivia V

This wig was purchased from
So, This wig is about 24" long with layers, very loose beach like wave. Very messy appearance. Futura fiber, so it can be curled at 300 degrees. Around 3" parting space.

So, this wig didn't last very long before it started tangling and matting together. Id say, all in all, it will last you around 2-3 weeks at the most. HOWEVER, this unit does have the "messy" look, so it is very easy to detect.

PROS: Very soft, true to color, nice fit, decent amount of parting space, nice density, full, pretty style.

CONS: Tangles a lot, mattes very badly at the nape, synthetic shine, hairline not the best, starts to look stringy after a while, lots of shedding, hair straigt around the hairline instead of wavy.

Rating: 5

Will I purchase again? No, Not my favorite. Cute style, but too many no gos!
