Hi folks Kathleen here with my top 10 grab & go wigs. So what does that mean exactly? These are wigs that I grab for in the morning without thinking. They are easy to wear with or without makeup because 85% of the time I don’t wear any make up. As you can see 7 out of 10 are pixies. I still feel most comfortable and myself in short hair. When I’m running around food shopping etc. these are the wigs I most frequently grab. I am starting with my number 1 choice and counting down to my number 10. Why not count up? Let me explain something about myself. I was the mom that had my kids open their birthday presents first them eat the cake and ice-cream and then play…that’s what I always wanted to do when I was a kid…today I am the one that would scroll down to see the number 1 choice first. That is why I am starting with my number 1 choice and counting down to my 10th choice….and now you know. 😉
Number 1 is my Voltage Elite by Raquel Welch in Glazed Strawberry. I love the tousled flippy ends. Its not too short so the length is great for those days I’m lazy and don’t want to worry about my bio hair peaking out. VE is 100% hand tied with a very believable lace front and mono top. All the bells and whistles. Its hard to find 100% hand tied pixies..they just don’t get the love their longer sisters get.😉 This color is so natural and pretty. Combines my love of reds and blondes.
My second most grabbed for wig is a new one for me…Ruby by Jon Renau in Shaded Pralines & Cream. A great pixie that fits me so well. I have a petite/average head and so many of the wigs I wear are large on me. She has a lovely lace front so I can clip her back off my face with a mini claw to feel cooler in all this summer heat. Like Voltage Elite her longer sideburn area and nape are great for covering my bio hair. A shake and go wig. If need be I can put her on with out a mirror and go. Thats my kind of wig. The longer layers on top are so stylish and the root isn’t too dark. This color is pretty and doesn’t require makeup at all.
Number 3 Jett by Estetica in R14/8H is a new favorite. A brunette shade which is a little different for me. My bio hair is very close the the blended highlight color on Jett. This color is so realistic. It is my moms hair color. My mom passed in 2000 and I feel like she’s close to me when I wear this brunette pixie. You see there are many reasons we love a wig and sometimes like Jett its a comfort wig. This color is gorgeous. A medium warm brown with ash blonde highlights blended into the base shade to make this color a very neutral brown. I just love it. ❤️ Out of all the pixies I have I love the style of Jett the most..such texture! You can do absolutely anything to her. Sleek her down or spike her up. Like Ruby she just has a lace front but boy a really gorgeous one. Super tiny knots. She’s big on me though I won’t lie..lol. Estetica has such beautiful wigs and for folks with larger heads they fit like a dream. For me they are kinda big. I still totally love this wig. If she fit better she’d be number one hands down. I would be the first one to buy more if Estetica offered her in a petite size..a girl can dream right? 😜
Ahhh number 4 Nikki by Belle Tress. Nikki fits me so well I love her for that reason alone. If I wake up and want some sass and volume I grab Nikki. Her cap fits me like a glove even over the ears…no bunching. There is no better feeling than having a wig fit like it was custom made for you. I love all the crazy curl and texture on this one. Belle Tress has done a superb job of slicing in hair along the ear tabs. This gives her a more realistic appearance. She is also heat defiant so she has no wig shine which is always a big plus. She does have a lace front and mono part. Does she need a mono part?…probably not. 😉The dark red auburn color is striking and I know I’ll wear her even more this Autumn.
Ahh my Mariska Petite by JR in 32BF rounds out my top 5 grab & go wigs. Love this modified wedge pixie. Another 100% hand tied wig with a beautiful lace front and mono top. Fits me beautifully. Great when I want to feel more girly. There is a sweetness to this style. I love the long sweeping bang. This color..oh oh oh! ❤️❤️❤️ deep brownish red auburn base with intense ginger red highlights. She is so flattering. I love this color. I wish they offered more styles in 32BF.
My number 6 grab and go wig and the first “long” wig to make this list is Isla by Tony of Beverly in one of my all time favorite Irish reds Sunset Red. Such an easy relaxed wave/curl pattern on her. A gorgeous lace front. A great length if you want to wear something longer than a pixie but you don’t want it to reach your shoulders and you don’t want it falling in your face. Isla fits the bill. Love this style so much. I believe this would look amazing on everyone. I put her on do a head flip and I’m on my way. 😊
Number 7 goes to my Carlotta SF by Belle Madame in the most natural “Irish” red I’ve ever seen…Paprika Mix. Now she isn’t available at CysterWigs at the moment and I hesitated to add her to this list for that reason but I’m all about honesty and integrity so here she stays. 😉This wig and and color makes me feel like a true redhead. My dream color. The wave is relaxed but curly enough to satisfy my love of curls. ( full disclosure I trimmed about 1.5” off the front curls) The hair fibers are so fine and on the dryer side so there is no wig shine at all. So realistic. The density is perfection. She has a lace front and mono part( I add flesh colored soft silicone tape to the underside of the part for added realism) This red has so many nuances to it. Well just look at it..gorgeous huh? This wig fools everybody, it looks that real. In my humble opinion it’s worth every penny.
Rounding out my longer wigs at number 8 is Madison by Estetica in the beautiful natural ginger color R30/28/26. Now don’t laugh all you “real” long hair lovers..😘 For a pixie lover Madison is long. 😂 A true shake and go…the shorter length is very wearable even with all this curl and texture. She never gets in my face or overwhelms me when doing errands. Her lace front is impeccable and even with all this curl her natural density still allows me to tuck her behind my ears. I love having that versatility. A great no make up wig because of this color. I love it. Such a pretty highlighted natural medium ginger.
Number 9 goes to another Belle Madame wig. (The theme here is you get what you pay for 😏) Coco Mono SF in the delicious color Ruby Mix. I love my 100% hand tied, lace front, mono top, low density, no shine, fine denier hair Coco Mono SF(this stands for super front because the lace front is so amazing) The quality is the best. I purchased her from Wigcloseouts.com …CysterWigs clearance site and have worn her a lot. This color is so fun and again even though this is a fashion color it is so nuanced…you just don’t see colors like this. The fit feels like you aren’t wearing a wig. A stunning work of art.
My 10th and last choice is my Aubrey by Tony of Beverly in the color Tangelo. I altered his wig to fit me. She was crazy huge on me. Now she fits me like a glove. I also trimmed and added some textured layers. I’m proud of how she came out. I love this style now. She has lots of movement and texture. The color is so gorgeous. I grab for this wig when I feel I’m in a spunky mood or if I need cheering up…like when its a dreary day. You seriously can’t wear this wig without smiling. The take away here is I wear wigs according to my mood or how I want to be portrayed. Having fun is number one for me. Wigs can certainly change your mood and I’ll take all the help I can get..so by all means ENJOY!
