Super excited about this review because I’ve been searching for the right wig for a couple of months now. Guess what? I found it and it has arrived. I ordered the Black Roses lace front synthetic wig from PowderRoomD (click here).
At full price, the wig is $150 but I got this in the summer sale for $75. Postage to the UK was $53 which is slightly heartbreaking but I was expecting this. I did also have import charges to pay of £27 however this is nothing to do with PowderRoomD and will differ between countries. Order processing and shipping didn’t take long and I had my parcel pretty quickly.
The package arrived in a padded envelope and was fully secure and waterproof. The wig was in a sealable plastic bag and came with 2 wig caps. Also in the package was a discount code for the future and a card containing tips on caring for your wig which is a nice touch. The wig was also wrapped in a hairnet just to keep it smaller.
Now I am not an expert (not even close) when it comes to researching wigs or even what all the technical things in the description mean but I’ll try my best to get the information across.
This wig is 24 inchs long and weighs 1lbs so can feel slightly heavy. The wig has a light lace front with 1.5inch of parting space. The website says that you can darken the lace with makeup. The hairline is carefully sewn with a slight widows peak. The rest of the wig is attached to a netted cap that has adjustable straps and combs to help keep your wig in place.
The wig is absolutely gorgeous. Although synthetic, the hair is super soft and thick with plenty of bounce in the curls without having too much of a shine. The website description states that it has a density of 150-180% making this a natural/full to heavy hair thickness. Due to being synthetic fibres, you can use heat tools to style this wig but be sure to use a medium heat.
When it arrived, the lace at the front of the wig was massive and had to be trimmed down. Depending on the hairline, you may also need to pluck this thinner to make a more natural hairline. This usually depends on the density of the wig, some can look natural. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this, you can order this as an additional package on the website.
The only thing that I find a little problematic with this wig, is the front part at the top. Just after the hairline, the hair dips in a little before getting its volume. I have found it a little hard to style the front without using heat but I’m hoping heat will fix this. You can use a hairdryer to keep your parting in place.
When it comes to looking after this wig, you need to be using a big paddle brush or a wide toothed comb. Always start combing from the ends aand work upwards to keep your wig in the best condition. This is a little scary to do with such tight curls so you need to be gentle and best to do it damp.
Overall, I am completely in love with the Black Roses Lace Front Wig from PowderRoomD and immediately wanted another one. Unfortunately, I haven’t fallen in love with another yet. The wig is beautiful and of high quality. It’s long, heavy had has plenty of hair. The cap is well sewn and is secure enough for everyday wear. Any performances will need glue.
