A227043 - Hairdo by Ken Paves Spiky Cut Wig
Nice looking wig..
This is a very nice looking wig. I did return it only because the style did not look good on me. Wish it would have worked out for me.
Not a good look
I have Ken's other 2 wigs (angled cut and layered bob) and love them. Was looking forward to this one, but it is not anywhere near the quality or fabulous style of the other wigs. I spent almost 30 minutes working with the style just to get it to look "OK". UGH! I have wigs for bad hair days and when I just don't have time to do my hair. If I need to spend 30 minutes working on a wig, I might as well just do my own hair. Gave it 2 stars for color (beautiful! Medium Red Ginger) and that the back looked great right out of the box. But from the side and front - forget it! Looked like a bad mullet gone wrong. Also, I don't think the material felt as nice as his other wigs. The 2 wigs I have feel silky and like real hair. This one felt stiff, straw-like. Very disappointed.
Why no platinum?
Why do you show this darling wig in platinum and then not have that gorgeous color available? This is a chance for we women to try and daring color. Bring on the platinum! you would sell a lot of that color.
I am totally shocked at the bad reviews. I have thinning hair due to a medical issue, and every time I have looked at wigs, they looked so fake and had hairstyles from the 80's. This wig is fabulous, and very modern. And whoever thinks this is not a cool style, must not live in a big city. This is a very current, and popular style. Just not many hairdressers can achieve it. When I took a photo (right out of the box) and sent my best friend, asking what she thought - her reply was frickin' fabulous! What did you do and when did you do it. She thought I had gotten a new haircut and wanted to know the phone number of the stylist. It's beautiful. And the dark roots make it much more believable. If you color your hair, you know you can't go but a very few days without signs of your roots growing out. My problem is my roots are gray - so the dark roots make it much more believable, and younger. I haven't tried any curling tools on it, but was able to brush and finger-comb it to be exactly where I wanted it to be. It won't stay on without a couple hair pins to anchor it - but it is light - and I actually forgot I had it on until I started getting ready for bed and realized I hadn't taken it off, right out of the box. I think the hardest part will be finding the color you want, but there are lots of choices, and mine was so good, my oldest and dearest friend didn't even know I had on a wig. I sent her a photo too and she said "finally - they did what you wanted with your hair!" She's known me for 35 years and she was thrilled I finally got a good haircut. No clue it was a wig. It's worth a try, if you have a reason to get a wig - and it would be fun to have just to throw on when you don't want to, or have time to, mess with your own hair. Will be really great for weekends and will give my hair a rest! I love it. Everything is on waitlist now, but I'm going to order a 2nd color. I wouldn't recommend it for a gift only because this is a personal item.
Bad hair days begone!
I ordered the red/ginger shade as there were only a few choices left. I do sometimes have my own hair colored a light reddish brown and the wig was not a bright red more like a reddish brown with light streaks. My own hair is fine and rather thin and this wig is the hair I always wanted. I tried it on without makeup when it arrived and I liked it. Today I wore it with makeup and it just made me feel like I looked 10 years younger. Did not want to take it off and even checked to see if there were any more available in a blonde color but all colors were now.waitlist only.
I will wear it to the salon and ask the stylist to copy it as close as possible given the limitations with my own hair. As soon as the grey starts showing or I want to look more 'glam' on will go this wig. I would like to get another one in a different color when available. One thing I did do was smooth the top down a bit with the spikes framing my face and the style was so youthful. This is the first wig I have owned and after years of bad hair days It will not be my last!
What an incredible wig. Its very realistic and easy to wear. I took it out of the box shook it out and it looks like I just got back from the salon! It's an incredible cut and style. My stylist loves the look and could not believe it was a wig when I wore it to the salon for my usual cut and color similar to the wig. This will save me several hundred a month in extending salon visits.
I love this one!!
I love this style. I have had so---many compliments. No one can believe its not my own hair. The color light golden Blonde is so natural looking. I just pull some of my own hair out in the front and back and it looks so sassy. It was on wait list for a while but it was worth the wait.
Definitely not worth the money
I wear wigs due to a medical issue. I thought this wig would be fun so I purchased 2 in the brown with golden highlights and the brown with the red highlights. They were an absolute disappointment. I'm used to fixing my own wigs so I put one on and started just fingering it to spike it out. It was almost uncontrollable. Also, I wasn't impressed with the color or highlighting. Both were taken back to the post office over the weekend to be returned. It was extremely disappointing as I thought I found something to wear that would be a little lighter on my head.
Love this Style
I LOVE, LOVE this wig, it is sassy and cute, when purchasing this wig you need to remember you have to work with them a little to get them to the style you like, I use a spiking gel sometimes to make the hair go where I want it to, also remember this wig is heat friendly, you can actually use a curling iron and hot rollers on this wig to give it a different look. I got the Med Brown/Gold which is actually more like a dark blonde with light, light brn highlites but it looks great on me. I have bought about 75 wigs over the past 7 yrs from $49 to $300 and this wig really does look alot more expensive then $99. This wig is light weight, not to bulky and with the razor cut looks very real, like I said you cant just stick it on your head and expect it to look good, you need to work it with your fingers or with gel or curling iron if you like to get it to just what you want. I am 61 yrs young and this style makes me look even younger, give it a try, you will be happy you did!!
I purchased Ken's other short wig mainly because of the style; it was very much Victoria Beckham's style, and it is fantastic. So when I saw this one come on I thought (I was hoping) it was going to be like Lisa Rinna's style, which I love, but sadly, it was not. I'm not sure what this one is supposed to be, but I didn't find it flattering at all, at least not on me.
I really love this wig it makes me look and feel young. My husband and grown children like it to. Would like to have a longer wig hope they have one soon.
Perhaps the poor reviews are a result of the color chosen. I chose light brown, my hair is a medium brown with golden highlights. The color is so realistic, my husband thought that I had just had my hair cut. The style is great untouched out of the box. I received compliments from women in the department stores, and the grocery checkout.. I find it flattering and edgy. The fact that one may also use a curling iron and/or blow dryer is an added benefit to provide custom styling if desired. I have worn wigs off and on for years, this wig is the most stunning to date. Buy one! If you don't find it flattering to your face, simply return it.
I think you will love this wig, it may save you money on cuts, products, and most of all it saves time and elevates your mood.
