Hi folks Kathleen here with my review of a new style by Gabor Dream Do in a new color for me Honey Pecan. I’ll be honest with you any style that is short with curl I’m attracted to. Lately I’ve also been intrigued with bronde type colors. Depending how you look at it they’re either blondish browns or brownish blondes…😂 Honey Pecan is warm and dynamic exactly the sort of color I was hoping for.
Now looking at image 2 of the model wearing Dream Do I could tell she has some great big wavy curls, she is on the long side of pixy has loads of volume and she has been styled to the hilt. Below is a video right out of the box and all I did was finger comb her back and off my face. I didn’t even shake her.
After my initial impression of ugh not for me because I thought she looked dated I started warming up to her. She has loads of volume…seriously some big hair going on here. The funny thing is even though she has a closed cap (where permatease lives) on top I would say the permatease is actually minimal. Really just enough to cover wefts and support the curl. The majority of the volume comes from the big barrel curls and waves. I would say the density of Dream Do is average to dense. It seems lately there has been a lot of discussions about wigs having such low hair density that wefts are easily exposed. You will not have any issues with wefts showing on Dream Do.
After I took this photo (image 4) I took the tags off..she’s a keeper!
This color Honey Pecan GL11-25 is everything I was hoping it would be. Overall its a coarsely mixed dynamic light brown golden blonde highlights all over with bolder highlights framing the face..oh yes its gorgeous. In low light she’ll just read as a nice warm highlighted light brown but boy when you get her in sunlight pow! Love this color. Look at all the blonde hair framing the face in image 5. This was taken on my kitchen floor with the sun coming in. So pretty. If you want a thoroughly blended color with no visable highlights Honey Pecan isn’t for you. 😉
The barrel curls are so beautiful. If your bio hair was thick you will love Dream Do. She might not be an everyday style for everybody. A fellow wig sister mentioned this style would be beautiful if you were going to a ball or comparable formal event like the Opera.
Dream Do is very well made. I am very happy with the quality construction of her. This lace front couldn’t be any more beautiful. This style screams wear me off the face..really!…look at the lace front in image 9. ♥️
Here’s a nice closeup of her lace front (image 10). The knots are so tiny even looking in my magnifying mirror I could barely see them. The spacing looks very natural without that uniformed pattern that drives me crazy..🤪
Now you know my initial reaction to Dream Do. I think this style can look dated very easily vs sharp so in image 11 I messed her up some. I styled her so she doesn’t look so perfect. To take a quote from the sitcom Seinfeld…” not that there’s anything wrong with that” 😉 It’s just more me styled in a relaxed way.
I can imagine how chic and dramatic this style would look in silver or gray.
The cap has a lot of room in it. I have a 21.25” circumference and took the adjusters in a bit and that worked out great. Where it’s big on me is in the cap. Not crazy big but I would say if you have an average to average/large head Dream Do will fit you beautifully. Since she has such volume I will probably modify the cap so she fits closer to my head. Still very wearable for me as is though.
I would suggest getting a color that your bio hair can blend with. When I styled her off my face she looked more natural to take some hair out at my temples and sideburns. Now my bio hair is very thin so I only have a few strands to incorporate into the wig hair but it does add to the realism.
Me and backs. I have an obsession with them. I LOVE the back of Dream Do…lol. The nape is quite long 3.25” so no need to keep your hair super short or shaved at the nape to wear this one. That will appeal to a lot of folks.
I mentioned Dream Do has a closed cap on top with rose lace and permatease. Image 16 is a closeup of the top and you can’t see any permatease can you? Superbly done. It does it’s job which is to obscures the wefts and help the curls keep their shape. Another great thing about permatease is you can style these curls in any direction you want. I love a mono top or mono part but I think you know what I mean when I say that very often those wigs have a part set in them (from the factory) and they’ll take some training to reset the parts. Often steam is the only way to change a part on a monofilament wig. With a permatease wig you don’t have that roadblock.
Look at those big barrel curls in image 17. These look like you set your hair in big rollers and just tousled the curls with your fingers.
Ok I am wearing a tee shirt (when am I not wearing a tee shirt? 😂) so very underdressed but imagine pairing Dream Do with a beautiful teal suit…talk about executive hair. Hmm…now that I think about Dream Do is very Jane Fonda type hair.
Or how about a long dress…I wish I had this hair when my daughter married. Perfect mother of the bride hair.
Or how about a cranberry red gown for that fundraising Christmas ball. So many possibilities.
The take away here is if you love big curls and want a short but not pixy short style with plenty of hair to play with and a lace front that is exquisite than Dream Do would be a wonderful option for you. Enjoy!
