I'm starting to make the full wigs a part of my protective style regimen! "Riley" was introduced to me by way of my sister. She bought this unit at her local beauty supply store for around $28 and wore it home for the holidays. However, she traded this wig for some crochet braids and allowed me to take it off of her hands. And so my second journey with a straight wig, but first journey with a "Lob" began!
Let's start with the parting space, which I sadly don't know much about. Since my sister originally purchased this unit I was unfamiliar with the original parting space. But given by the picture provided on wigtypes.com, the parting space seemed average, but definitely needed some tweaking. This was my sister's first full unit ever. She knew she wanted to tweeze the part, and so she did. Sadly, she didn't do it very neatly. The beginning of the part was fine, but a few centimeters back, the part is wider, and then returns to a smaller size.
How to fix parting mess-ups
There's really not a way to fix a parting mess-up, but you can camouflage it. In order to do this I had to take out some of my hair to cover the wig hairline and parting. I took about half an inch in length of my hair to do this, and lightly flat ironed it to match the texture of the wig. And I think it worked nicely!
Altogether, I still have a lot of love for this unit! It's so pretty, and definitely a more low key unit, that is both sophisticated and stylish. Anyone who is looking for a unit to rock at work, this unit can definitely be the one for you. Just be careful when widening the part. I recommend pulling the hairs with your fingers, as opposed to using a tweezer, that way you have more control of the parting space.
