Hi folks Kathleen here with my review of Macie by Tony of Beverly. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Macie when I saw Heather’s youtube review in the color Warmth & Coconut Cream. My only decision was what color to choose. Oh who am kidding I just couldn’t resist I had to choose Sunset Red…lol
Macie Is the best of both worlds. Almost 100% hand tied with just enough wefts and yes permatease to give her body. This beauty will not go flat on you. Even with a mono top she has plenty of oomph.
Image 3 illustrates the side view of Macie. Starting at the top you have a contoured lace front and then the mono top. This is all hand tied…individual hairs are hand knotted through out the lace front and mono top. The sides are also hand knotted with more than one hair at a time. This is called cluster knotting. The back has machine made wefts that are covered with the same material as the rest of the cap. All beautifully executed.
I always keep the hairnet and use it when I store my wigs in their boxes.
Image 5 illustrates what to expect your Macie to look like if you just plopped her on your head and did nothing else to her. If you are a wig newbie you might panic if this is what you saw in the mirror right? It’s ok this is normal. 😉
I hold the nape of my wig and give her a few shakes…who knows how long your wig has been in a box. Her fibers are compressed and shaking helps decompress them.
You remembered how flat and lifeless Macie looked right out of the box? Give her a little shake and ….Voilà! Big hair! 😜
So if you are wondering if Macie is a flat style the answer is no. To subdue the volume I just tap it down with my fingers. This has a hand tied monotop and sides so she doesn’t have traditional permatease. It was hard to see but it appears the hair at the base of the wig has some crinkle to it for lack of a better word. Nothing you can see it just supports the ability to get some volume if you want. My Celebrity by Raquel Welch has the same thing. You have the realism of hand tied wig but the oomph support 😉 of this crinkled texture at the base of individual hairs. Quite ingenious if you ask me.
So first impression after I removed the zig zag part that she came with and gave her a few shakes was ahh love. I did expect her to be longer from watching Heathers review but I wasn’t disappointed at all in the length. The description says she has bouncy curls. I am a bit of a curl snob and I wouldn’t call this a curly wig. She has a deconstructed barely there curl pattern. Really more of a wave and I love it.
Tony of Beverly lace fronts are some of the best in the industry. The one on Macie is superb.
Image 10 illustrates two things. What a casual everyday style Macie can be and how beautiful this color is. Since my skin has neutral/leaning towards warm undertones color will reflect onto my skin. Sunset Red enhances my peachy skin color so I can enjoy this beautiful Irish Red without putting on make up. Yippee. 😉
In the video above I have applied soft silicone medical tape (to the inside cap along the part to hide my bio hair and obscure that pesky seam between the lace front and mono top.) This makes the part look very realistic and doesn’t harm your monofilament features.
Macie can be casual or formal. Here’s another look at this beautiful lace front and parting area. Since Macie has a mono top you can part her on the right or in middle without any trouble. In Heathers video review she parts hers on the right with ease.
The night before I took these photos I took my Macie and soaked her in cold water. I patted the majority of the water off with a towel and hung her upside down to dry…scrunching her every so often as she dried. I also sprayed some Simply Stylin silicone spray on her ends. She looks even better now.
Look at those waves just beautiful.
To minimize camera distortion I took this photo from a distance. (My face is fuller but my nose is smaller…it’s a trade off 😂) This way you can see the true scale and density of Macie. A beautifully balanced style. Btw I had no trouble keeping the hair out of my face. Her waves/texture makes it easy to sweep off to the side and stay put.
I love the shape of Macie…oval. Macie is little longer in the back than the front. It’s a very flattering shape. Isn’t this texture divine?..Tony of Beverly has a winner here.
There is a little bit of Permatease at the nape to support the style.
Sunset Red a beautiful Irish Red. Very similar to Raquel Welch’s Glazed Fire that is so hard to find and is not offered in her newer styles. If you are looking for a doppelgänger to GF Sunset Red is the closet color dupe you’ll find.
The take away here is if you want a luxury cap with all the bells and whistles that is on the short side of mid length with natural density & beautiful feminine waves that is offered in 32 colors including grays then you’ll love Macie. Enjoy!
