Lock shop wig Review


Hello Kawaii lovers hope you are all looking forward to excitement of Christmas since its so so close *^_^* Yay! I am teehee.
So couple of weeks back the Lock shop had a restock of wigs and some new wigs came in,the wigs were not my sort of thing but the Mermaid in Honey had been restocked and I got my chance to get it ordered.
The mermaid style is really nice,It was the black to purple fade I liked but it was discounted due to it not fading well?

If that makes sense? >.<

Any how I have never been one for the longer types of wigs and also the fact they no longer had the black on in ,I choose to go with the Honey wig,it was the colour that drew me to it more than anything,Also the style instead of curls its more waves,but not like the krimp style that GLW has in Rhapsody which looks a lot like candy floss,I sort of like those but they are soo pricey !
;~;
Before I got right off track here is the review.

Postage and Shipping.
The Lock shop has provided a new faster shipping,which makes it quicker to get  your wig posted to you,however I picked the medium rate for shipping .
I ordered on the 11th and it was dispatched by the 15th and got to me on the 19th,My wig came in a plastic sealed bag and the item was wrapped up in tissue paper and the wig is held in a plastic bag reseal-able,its a idea to keep these bags for storing the wig.

Product.
The wig is covered with a net and the wig cap has been stuffed with paper to keep it from being flatted in the shipping.
It comes with a free wig cap and it all gift wrapped up.
The wig itself,has super soft long wavy fibres,you can run your fingers through the wig and its silky to touch.
This is one of the longer wigs about 70-75cms in total,which reaches just past my bust,
Its light and easy to wear.
The colour is lush,Its like a nice blonde colour,I would say its a very slight bit darker in natural lighting to the photo on the web site but its a very natural looking colour and that's why I really like it.So this didn't bother me in any way.
My wig is the newer style with long bangs,so I with ease swept the bangs to the side,I am not a big fan on bangs but like the option to pick what style I like to make my wig.

Price.
I was happy to pay the price as I know how good the standard of the wig are from the past.

Over all thoughts.With every wig I have bought from the Lock shop I have never been left disappointed,The products are high standard and super quality. 
Its one of my top places to buy my wigs,Sorry GLW you are lower in my list!
Every time I put on my wigs from Lock shop,I get a sense of glamour and feel like a model with them on.
If there was one thing I would want to see would be new darker shades and other darker colour ways,as  much as I enjoy being a Blonde...I like my darker shades too.
so I give the lock shop...
9/10
Only cause I want more darker shades 
\^_^/

So here are a few pics that have been taken *note these photos are with the wig taken straight out of the bag.




Till Later

New Hair Style

So after selling my poodle Skirt and getting my Discount off Gothic Lolita Wigs I ended up buying at a very low price in the end...we love a good bargain!
A new GLW Wig,I have to say I was very impressed with the speed that they sent it out to me with it coming from the USA. =^__^=
I got Raven from the Spiral Collection
I wanted  a new curly one as my other curly one has matted and looks really bad know.

So I  put it on as soon as I opened my parcel it was my its so CUTE! 
Love it!

I have  had to trim the fringe/bangs but its so soft and silky and smooth,I have a few photos with it out of the packet and with out any make up.

So He has sorta already has guessed I am baking him a cake,I have not baked in a while so wish me luck! I will be a busy bee with it i thinks.Oh and the reason he guessed I was  baking a cake was the give away clues of the shopping lists for a mad amount of eggs flour and sugar LOL.
Note to self get your own shopping.

I love my Hair part 2 (Brake my hair & my heart)

Yay *^__^* my new wig has come and yes that means photos but not in this Blog entry today!
There is a reason Why I like wigs well Lets go back a good few years and step into my past,When I left school I went out to the big wide world on the path to become a top hairdresser and style the stars and celebs of today,Have great looking hair every day doing a glamorous job and be famous or at least well known make my own shampoos and Brands...
Yeah that was the Dream.
But the reality well...
Hair dressing right from the start you get the jobs of making clients Tea or Coffees,Sweeping up cuttings that are sticking to the floor cause the are wet and it smells yucky,From there you get to wash folks hair dealing with oily hair to hair full of lice oh and then Hair colouring being instructed to mix up chemicals that are a irritant to your skin to apply to hair and then to wash it off with bare hands and then you get dry hands and skin  wash after wash it getting worse and worse to the point you cant wear a watch or rings ...
Not glamorous at all!

So lets Fast forward to my nightmare,Trainee Hairdressers where 'encouraged' to dye and colour their hair some one would do it for you and you have a new style and colour every month -3 months well I ran out of ideas and  one girl suggested a idea so we got permission and off they went mixing up the colour then applied it put me under heat and then it happened the most unbearable feeling of my scalp burning.tears rolled down my face as i begged them to wash it off to the point I was going to do it my self already removing the hot foils of colour to my horror the foils were taking my hair out too,at this point there was a bit of a drama and my hair was falling out,They washed all the colour off which was a mess due to me not keeping it on but the bleach used was destroying my hair (they had to bleach it up 1st to add a other colour on to it while they had a toner on the rest).Then they Dried my hair full blast heat and that made it go frizzy.I was looking in the mirror in horror it was still falling out but that was not the worse part it was also still burning,I went home with a bad headache and took some pain killers but it was still burning,Then to add to it my whole scalp.ears and neck swelled up
Yup you got it, I was taking a reaction to the Hair Dyes and Chemicals they used.
Ended up in hospital.


Fast forward to the present day,That was done in a Top well known Salon and Salon Owner as much as I want to type the names in here I will not as this is all in the past even if it still effects me,I have moved on.They never did anything or say sorry and that the thing that hurt most was this was the place I worked at! They swept it under the carpet and keep it to themselves,I left there rapidly and moved to a other salon but I couldn't become a hairdresser with out being able to colour my career left me heart broken.I know can not touch any thing like Henna,Natural hair dye,Semi Colours or anything. I've been all natural since and will go White or Gray no cover up for me.I miss all the Rainbow colours I had and the mad crazy styles but I got told that if I took a other reaction it may make me swell up to the point I cant breathe and that's not something I want to Risk!


Even to this day my Hair is in a bad way its lifeless and will not grow much but I have been using Lee Stafford's Hair that never grows treatment and have to say Yes its helping my poor hair recover which is shocking that its taken so long.I can not stress how much Hair dyes are really bad for your hair! Bleach is the worst,It maybe make you look great and stunning but its wrecking your hair structure and strength it gives you split ends and it burns your skin/scalp!

And only after getting into Cos play and Lolita I have come across my life savers Wigs!
They don't damage your hair!They come in so many styles and colours you could be a red head for the day to a blonde the next they are short long curly and even two toned! Clip in ones are great also have I have a pair and a full head curly wig and you can get heat resistant ones too.
They can create a whole new look for you that's why I love Wigs so much if I could Id have lots of them but they do cost al ot but mind you cheaper that a full head of Highlights and Tint!
That Place I worked in the Top Salon so to say is around £70-£100 prince wise! A wig is about £30 + mark,Think of the money you would save also! 
Highlight and Tints give you a Root growth and you have to go back for a touch up every 8-10 weeks to keep on top of it!

My top Wig shops are the Lock Shop and they have  a Facebook page the Owner is great they know what they are talking about and give great customer service and answered all my questions before I ordered the other shop is Gothic lolita wigs They have a big Range but  I have not ordered from them so can not comment on the service they seem to be bigger that Lock shop but I prefer smaller shops and liked the rapport I got with the owner and a one to one good customer service so try the Lock shop first!
Please Check these stores out its worth your time you don't want to end up like me with awful hair and left broken hearted over a career.

Though being a Mummy is the best and most rewarding one ever *^___^* <3 love my Chibi Bean so much!

So stay safe with colours and most of all ...
Stay Kawaii!
