This unit was sent to me for review from RpgShow.com All opinions and statements are all 100% honest.
The unit I received was the cls021-s Kim Kardashian.
I have mines in the color #2 which looks identical to the #1b that I already have. The texture is in silky, Cap construction #3 (Glueless Cap with 3 combs and adjustable strap), 20" long, Light brown lace, cap size 1 (small). This unit has chunky layers which makes it easier to style. I styled mines without cutting it at all!
This unit is very soft and gorgeous. However, it is very thin. Not sure what the density is on this unit but it seems lighter than a 100%. My suggestion is that you Co-Wash the hair then blow dry it using a blow dryer. Doing that made my unit more voluminous. Also add big loose curls so its not so limp.

I have my unit in the color #2 which looks more like a 1b!
The texture of this hair is a course, natural, tight spiral curl. About 12" in length. Very volumous and full however, light weight and breathable.
There is 3 clips. 2 are located on the temple area and 1 is on the crown. There is no combs in the back or drawstring which is strange. Just the adjustable straps however its very large on my head. So make sure to adjust the straps and use bobby pins for extra security.
So far, this unit has gotten really big but not uncontrollable. It looks natural so everyone thinks its in fact my own hair. BUT.....Its tangled A LOT! One thing about Model Model Hair is that no matter what I do, it always seems to tangle quicker than other brands! The nape area is also matted up pretty badly. However, I am still wearing the wig because its not super noticeable.
All in all, I think this wig may last the average wig wearer about 2 weeks if you are trying to maintain a "perfect twist-out" look. After a while it does begin to get bigger and create a different form/shape. So if you don't mind that, it should last about a month. I will update again once I have stop wearing this unit for a more accurate estimate.
PROS: Natural style, comfortable, easy to blend, light weight, nice texture, versatile, gorgeous curls, soft.
CONS: Cap size too big, needs a drawstring or nape comb, tangles a lot, mattes a lot at the nape area, too dark for color specified, has a shiny look to it, doesn't last that long, sheds, gets frizzy.
Will I purchase this unit again? Hmm...Let me wear it a little longer and I will update. I love the style, but it has a few doosies...

I picked up the unit from HairStopAndShop.com I received this unit in color #99J. This lace front wig is approx a 28" mermaid braid that can also be worn unbraided as 33" loose beach wave/curls That can be flat ironed up to about 320 degree (I am assuming...since the packaging does not specify specific temperature withstands, but it does indicate that it is future fiber) This unit has about an inch and a half if lace parting space, 3 combs in the front, 1 comb and adjustable straps in the back.
Ive wore this wig one time (via my video review) and to be honest, I am kinda afraid to wear her out LOL solely based on the fact that for one, I attempted to step out of the box and try color, keep in mind, that I am usually Ms Plain Jane when it comes to color, two, this unit measures unstretched 33" unbraided, and three, this hair is some big ol WILD ass hair LOL, its gonna definitely take some getting used to, as I will probably purchase this wig again but maybe in a standard color to feel alright ;-) I did decide to spray my wig down with a little water, and rub it with my V05 moisture milk conditioner. Doing that helped give me a more defined wave pattern opposed to a more messy beach wave, which is also kinda cute, but not for me.
PROS: Looks very trendy and celebrity inspired, doesnt have a harsh synthetic look, has a decent amount of parting space, is very versatile, very light weight, color selections are countless, flat iron friendly overall is a very pretty wig!
CONS: Tangles badly if you're not careful when taking down the mermaid braid, braided style comes off looking a bit bulky, and ugly in my opinion, hair tangled upon finger combing, can look a bit frizzy and stringy without moisture i.e. water, cap fits a little snug and can become uncomfortable to some, hair feels slightly rough to the touch, got a few strands of shedded hair.
Will I recommend this wig? Umm, yeah to a certain degree...If you love SUPER long, full hair, you would LOVE this one, if not, I suggest you keep it moving!!
This unit comes from SassySecret.com The unit I received is u part lace wig Jamille in a color #1b. This unit is 20". 100% indian remy spanish wave hair that has been processed into a light yaky straight texture.
I have been wearing this unit have for about a week and have received tons of compliments! This hair strongly mimics african american relaxed hair to the "T" So fair I have not noticed any flaws within the hair other then the fact that it may come off looking a bit "fake" due to the texture that has been added for mimic sake. I do look forward to continue wearing this unit pieces!
Pros: Soft, mimics relaxed african american hair, no tangling or matting thus far, easy and quick unit, lays flat giving it a realist appearance, no shedding thus far, and baby hair along the perimeter, giving it a realistic appearance.
Cons: Due to the density that I have received, it comes off looking a bit too thin, the lace aroung the u-part becomes very "flimsy" and can get "tucked" under the actual u-part opening if you're not careful, texture added to mimic african american relaxed hair can come off looking a bit fake like high quality future fibers.
UPDATE: I so far have shampooed and conditioned this unit using my Loreal Power Moisture Hydraulic shampoo and conditioner as well as I ombred the hair. This unit still is in great condition, leading my to believe that there is nothing fake and phony about this hair! Video will be up soon!
Would I recommend this unit? Yes! It is a bit pricy in my opinion, but you will not be disappointed.
