Tales from the Roots: First Lady Wig Review

Here is the Outre 'First Lady' wig. I picked her up from my local beauty supply store for $39.99. Not a bad price but you can definitely find this wig online for under $30. After buying this wig on an impulse smh) and seeing the online price I have vowed to always shop online or at least shop around for a better deal! You live and you learn. 

When trying it on in the store and even in my first video I was fond of the wig but since then I've worn it out a few times and my opinion has changed somewhat. Although it is a nice wig in my personal opinion it's not worth more than $20, maybe $24.

Beshe Shelly Wig update



The Beshe 'Shelly' Wig has truly changed by life for the better. It is so easy to log onto YouTube, see a Youtuber raving about something, covet it until you buy it and then forget about it. At least this is generally how things go with me *cough* Crochet Wig *cough*. That's exactly how I ended up with Shelly but instead of only wearing her two times on the weekend I ended up wearing her every day... for four weeks.

I know,  I'm just as shocked as you are!

Most I have seen with my boyfriend, which makes these very sentimental, but I also saved the stubs of movies I saw with others. I am a big movie goer so saving these paper mementos was important to me. I am also an AMC Stubs card holder, which is a loyalty program offered by AMC theaters. One of the perks of

Tales From The Roots: Beshe 'Shelly' Wig Review

Hey Girl! 

I recently ordered this wig from Elevatestyles.com and I'm very pleased to tell you that I absolutely LOVE this wig. Her name is Shelly and she is a Beshe synthetic wig. 

Before I buy any wigs I do research on Youtube to get a sense of what it will look like and how other women feel about the wig. While I was in search of a natural looking afro/curly textured wig I came across a review of Shelly done by ColouredBeautiful. That's pretty much when I fell in love with it but before buying it I did watch several other reviews of this wig. In each of the videos I watched the wig received rave reviews so it was a no brainer at that point.
