Lock Shop Wig Review

Hey every one here is a new review post for you all on not one but 2 Lock shop wigs I have ordered in the past month or so!
I ordered a long wig and a short wig which are called Gemmi (short wig.) and Mermaid (long wig.)


The Mermaid wig is the Blossom one, its a soft brown colour that fades into the range of pinks that hide under and are seen near the ends of hair sections with a Ombre effect.
I really liked this wig when it came out and after a few months of saving I went ahead to purchase this one, I did sway on buying this one as I am not overly keen on brown shades.Any how I went ahead and bought it, I think this might be one of my favourite wigs as I loved the brown colour haha! As normal its easy to use the website and find updates on the Lock shop pages on facebook. I have had no problems when ordering from the web site even when I was moving house.


My Wig was packed well and secure. I have noticed that you do not always get a complementary Wig Cap as they often run out of these really quickly! So you may wish to order a few off ebay to have handy. I also find they are easy things to go missing. 
Any way here are some photos - I've not altered the wig in any way I may trim the bangs/Fringe of the Blossom wig.




I adore this wig - It can make any outfit more colourful, I feel its a youthful fun wig but its not over the top in anyway.I would love it to have a bit more body and ''Waves'' in the style since they have revamped the mermaid style but I do not regret getting this great wig.!

The other wig the Gemini Wig a much shorter and different style to any wig in the Lockshop so far, This is a more interesting wig, With 2 shades one darker than the other and has a ''puffy top''  and a visible crown on the scalp .I got this before my camera was fixed so there is no parcel photos but it was packed just the same way the other one was.


This is a more Visual Kei inspired wig, I simply bought it because there is a lack of short wigs from the Lock shop and the darker shade would work well with my natural tones. I also got a sense of Rock n Roll from looking at it. 

This wig will look very flat and odd if you are not used to this style. I didnt like it looking so flat maybe because I have a small head?! So I found with a bit of creative back combing ( thanks to my hairdressing days.) made the wig look a lot more fuller and bed head style.
I love the contrast of the wig colours and the fact it is a shorter wig.





I feel that with this wig it maybe a harder wig to dress with and work with a cord as such, its very emo/punk and extremely Visual Kei. So Perfect for all of you guys how love that look, To me I think this is a wig for my more rock chic look days. This wig also differs from the other wigs as the feel of this wig is much more matt compared to the other wigs, which made it easy to back comb this wig into a style.
I really am in hope for more shorter wigs in many styles from the Lockshop, I think the Visual Kei/ Gemini would look great in a variety of shades also.
Am just gona have to keep my fingers crossed!

Hope you like my Review!

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
