Trying a Lace front Wig

Hey there Kawaii crew.
Hope you are all good, so todays rambling post is about me trying a lace front wig for the very first time. I have been wearing wigs for 6 years now and I love my wigs and everything about them. Don't get me wrong though I have had a few horrors along the way and some very bad choices when I  have picked out some wigs. I mainly use risky ebay ( it is always a risk when it comes to ebay .) Cutesy Kink is a other store that is great for wigs and fast shipping.

Any how Lace front wigs. I took months humming and cooing over which one to get in the end I settled with a ebay seller I  have used many times in the past . I picked a blue black ombre to pink wig .It was a long length one and curly in style.  Now the lace front wig is a wig with - well you guessed it a lace / mesh front. Which you cut off up to the hair line, making it a more natural looking wig over all. It also frames the face nicely and some have multi hair parting options ( mine did not its a middle parting but I have managed to shift it a little off centre.) I don't actually have a hair parting as my hair has a mind of its own and does its own thing ,which in turn makes my hairdresser cringe when I walk in.


I got mine and fell in love with the colour! So pretty!


I really like the dark roots as it blends better with my natural hair for the hair line. However the wig was like a 24 inches and I took my battered scissors to it and hacked off about 4 inches . I love long wigs but I wanted to make this something I should work with every day kawaii and not need to worry about tangles as such. Cutting it was not to bad when I did it and I also gave it a quick wash to remove any lose hair strands . I left it to dry naturally and it kept all its curls and shape. The main difference in a lace front and a normal wig is the lace bit you have to cut off. Cutting the lace part was easy enough though I made sure to take my time as the wig was just under £35 with free shipping. I really don't want to mess it up and have to send it wig heaven just like that.





Sooo my experience with my wig wearing it first time was on christmas day, I have popped it on a few times for selfies- cause I had nothing better to do with my time lol.  I found that I really enjoyed wearing the wig the main thing was there was no tight tension around the hair line which can give me a head ache with cosplay or fashion normal wigs . I wore it comfortable for about 12 hours and didnt need to adjust it at all. I also didn't use any lace tape or glue which I do have but I want to get a longer wear out of the wig and might use some of that at a later date but the clips held it pretty much in place the whole day! The other time I wore my wig was a few days in Disney Paris. Again I wore it pretty much all day but then I had not so much fun time  as my face broke out and around my hair like making the lace front itchy along the hair line and upsetting my skin even more. However the wig did stay on even with going on thunder mountain and stayed pretty much in place. I did get annoyed with my wigs parting but I think in general I was kinda annoyed as my skin was playing up. 

Over all I do like this wig , I adore the colours in it. It has been a learning curve as I never used on or had one and I know now to pick shorter lengths and side parting styles over the middle parting ones. I also would say that I will for sure like to try other wigs and brands as well as get my hands on a few other colours and styles.

It's all about Kawaii Wigs insight/ review - Candy Kei Wigs

Hey every one!
I think some of you might have noticed a lot going on in my little Kawaii world. I have had such an exciting year so far. And I know it's just going to keep on getting better.

As many of you are aware am a keen wig wearer. I love my wigs. Wigs have been my must have things since I came across them and with not being able to dye my hair - I now can have any shade of colour I wish for. I love wearing wigs and they can really bring an outfit together and make  a outfit pop. It has been a long term wish for me to do some kind of related work with them. Which is why, I review a lot of wigs and would hunt about looking for wig online shops.
This year I have been asked work in collaboration with the UK retailer Cutesy Kink who have announced their own line of wigs called '' Candy Kei.''  I was sent a sample wig to try out and was required to send back feed back on my thoughts on the wigs. which I can say my feed was all positive.  The sample wig was great lovely shade, nice shape and no problems at all as well it was priced well too in the online store. I really put it through some testing from being worn out about about to rough handling , styling and brushing. I was really happy with the product.  I have even washed the wigs even though they are brand new but to put them through the test the wig didn't lose any shape or body.  As said really put them through a lot to test them, pulling at them seeing how strong they were and checking how neat the insides were. And with all of that barely any loss of wig fibres! And soon was super excited to know they were going forward to sell the wigs after hearing my feed back. YAY!



Then the most exciting opportunity came about. Which was Me, yes ME to be the new model and face of the wig range. With this being something I have been wanting to do ,since I came across wigs.  I want to share how fashionable and kawaii wigs can really be. In the past I enter contests but I was never one to win with'' likes'' cause at the end of the day I am not as popular as the others who took part, Or it might of meant to travel over seas or the company's was not interested in me cause am not very model like. That aside I was really excited about being asked.



You might go on to then think my reviews on the wigs will be biasses cause am modelling them but  that is not the case , they are good wigs for the money . Cutesy Kink and I have done 3 sets of shoots now and each wig has been amazing to work with, Easy to care for and to wear on set when shooting. The range is growing and its so nice to see a retailer, who cares deeply about J- Fashion to also stock a vast range of wigs that can go hand and hand with the styles and fashions. (Oh an of course every day wear and day to day styles as well! ) I think this is a added bonus as some company's might not share such a passion . It is also a delight to a UK retailer selling wigs that you can trust!
Anyway I really wanted to share my thoughts on the new wigs and share my new project.

Till later's!

Wig Review - Cute, Japanese, Fashion !

Hello every one!
How are all of you? I have a review for you all! YAY!! I have got a few to share but this time I will be doing  video one for you ( I will provide the links!) And one here on my blog! I am loving getting great quality photo's with my pop up studio and having fun filming! Link here!

Today's Review is a Wig review!


I was on facebook ( when ever am I not on facebook - haha!) and I spied a shop, that I have used in the past, Cute Japanese Fashion. I ordered from them a few times , I think it was a bear hoodie outfit and a few top's . But I noticed they were selling wigs!! A UK Kawaii company selling wigs?! YEA!! I was over the moon to see this, okay so at this time there is not many wigs in the store , how ever there is a few in some lovely colours, I caved in (am meant to be saving for Hyper Japan !) I bought one. - My bad 

So I was a happy bunny to get my wig in the post. I ordered it on the 13th and it came today ( the 16th.) How great was that. I was very impressed with the shipping, more so over the weekend and the plus of the company being based in the UK - no long waits.

My order came in a plastic Parcel bag.
Inside was my order, My wig . Yay!

As you can see my wig came in a plastic bag with some super cute business cards, so sweet with a Deer on one side and a Bunny on the back.


I ordered the Blonde shade wig called  ''Blonde wavy'' which with came with a complementary wig cap. Which is super handy. Its the mesh style that helps your own head breathe. 



  Inside the wig is the normal like all my other wigs and same with the size attachments to keep the wig on your head, with the choice of how tight you wish to wear it. At the 'Crown' of the Wig  there is the a small area of fake skin for the natural parting of the crown . This makes the wigs look more real looking when you can see some of the scalp. I was very impressed with the wig once looking it over and giving it a brush once out the parcel.



I love the colour its not overly shiny like some wigs, its a natural healthy shine, the fibres are soft. I want to say silky but they are not more a matt finish which I quite like ,as it gives a more natural look to the wig.
I would say that the stock photos are very much alike to the products , I would personally like to see more images of the wigs to get a better idea of the item. Maybe one that is not worn on some ones head would be good .

The style, I love the style its girly and very Kawaii!! You could so wear this with lolita or a harajuku kawaii look, even a every day look would go with this wig. I would maybe say its more of a lose curls style than a Waves style  ( Old habits of a hairdresser here!) but my goodness is a lovely wig.

The Price , here is a main factor for many wig buyers. The price. This wig cost me £13.99 and it is completely worth it! Its a great price. (all items at Cute Japanese Fashion are under £20!) The wig is a good quality product with a reasonable price.  I have bought many wigs (talking like over 20 something now.) And I have spend from both ends , from a £6 wig away up to the £40 wigs. And this price for this wig  is such a good price for its quality .

Wig wearing, Its a pretty comfortable wig - Maybe I am super used to wearing wigs but I have had this one one all afternoon and evening and its not brothered me at all , even for the length of the wig as its quite a long one so am very happy.


And the above picture is the wig (under one studio light and flash .) Is this not just stunning! It don't even look shiny with the flash on. Just a natural glow.

Over all am very happy with this wig, I am gona say its one of my favourite ones because of the colour and style .   Kawaii!!
