Kathleen’s Review: Neena by Tony of Beverly a pixy with texture galore!

Hi folks Kathleen here with a review of Neena by Tony of Beverly. If you’re like me and love curl and love pixies than you’ll enjoy this review. Its actually hard to find pixies that have much curl or texture. When I saw the product photos of Neena I had a feeling I would love her. I was correct…she’s fun with loads of hair…curl…and texture…just what I was looking for. At around $130 (before any sales or discounts 😉) she is also a great value. TOB has such a good selection of colors but of course I had to get Neena in one of my favorite reds…Sunset Red. I love this warm dynamic Irish red. Neena has a standard open cap. No lace front or other mono features which in turn keeps the price down. Cool to wear and also easy to wear for folks that don’t want or are sensitive to monofilament features. What she does have is a soft extended nape with velcro adjusters, closed soft ear tabs and a soft extended front area. She’s very comfortable.

Above in image 2 Neena shows off all her texture. Look at it..love it! Lol.

She has plenty of hair and longer sideburn hair and nape hair. What I like about that is when I get a little lazy about keeping my bio hair short Neena covers it up no problem. Just adorable with so many styling options.

Above in image 3 the product photos illustrate Neena styled forward. How cute is that? ☺️ Below in image 4 shows Neena from all sides. This wig head is life size(21”) so the collage more accurately illustrates where the hair would fall on you. These photos were taken in good even natural light. Sunset Red is such a gorgeous color and as you can see quite natural. Yes in direct sunlight its quite vibrant just like any natural Irish auburn red would be but most of the time this color will look closer to the images in this collage.

Below shows Neena and this beautiful color in more direct sunlight. This texture is a-m-a-z-i-n-g…plenty of hair..but not too much. You are probably wondering with all that texture is there a lot of permatease? Surprisingly very little. The texture and volume you can get with this wig comes mainly from the curl/texture and the amount of hair itself. I don’t need any styling products to get the look I want. 👍🏻 I would be very comfortably getting Neena in a light unrooted color. You will never see any wefts. 😉

The take away here is if you’ve been looking for a pixie with plenty of hair.. little permatease with lots of texture and curl and long enough to cover your bio hair w/o monofilament features at a reasonable price than Neena is for you. I adore her more and more each day…ENJOY!

    Intriguing, and a great price point – been wondering abt EW Kiss, and this seems more do-able right now for me. Question: did that nape feel short? Looks a bit stingy.

      Hi Beth…this is an easier style to wear if you don’t feel like “playing” much with your wig to get it to where you want it…I love Kiss but Neena has a lot more hair and will look good no matter what you do to it..;-) to answer your question…One reason why I love Neena is she has great coverage at the sideburn and nape area…a little longer than you normally get for a pixie this short. Nice dense hair..not flimsy at the nape at all..thanks for vistiting and commenting I hope I answered your question. Best Kathleen

    Kathleen,
    I was wondering how the cap size runs. I am a petite average size and have never tried a TOB wig. It looks like a really cute style.
    Thank you so much for all the great info.
    Jane

      Hi Jane thanks glad you enjoyed this review..Neena fits me great…In my experience it depends what style/cap design you get. Their older styles with their original cap..I think its called an air cap runs large..in my experience…. I have Pippa (a newer style)that has a mono top and lace front and. It fits beautifully..but TOB all hand tied Hunter is roomy on me. I have a petite/average head too. Having said that the only wig that was just too big after adjusting( the velcro or bra like adjusters at the nape)was Aubrey..I got her in Tangelo an older color maybe that had something to do with it. I actually altered that one. Overall TOB caps are very comfy and after adjusting should fit you fine…I have had similar experiences with almost all the wig companies I’ve tried..consistency arrgh…hmm I hope I helped….lol
