"I have been looking for a unit with a blunt heavy fringe (bang) like this for a very long time. In my bone straight relaxer days I used to have a blunt fringe so when I saw this unit on YouTube courtessy of Fabulasityisme, I jumped on it quick-time!"
Now, lets start off by saying that she looks stunning in every single unit she wears, but I thought I could rock this bad-boy unit too! It was Black Friday weekend and I managed to purchase not one, but two wigs showcased on her channel.
Brand: 21 Tress
Unit Name: Uba
Texture: Straight, long with blunt fringe (bangs)
Price: £25 inclusive of domestic shipping
From: Elevate Styles
Uba comes well packaged in a really long box, I am not entirely sure why the box is so big because she is so long she arrives coiled up with netting keeping her in place inside the box. I have kept all the packaging and will keep her stored like this when not in use.
The cap construction is a very well made regular wig cap. Uba has two combs, one in the front and one in the back at the nape area and she also has adjustable straps for a snug and secure fit.
Uba is marketed as a '100% Malaysian Human Hair Quality' unit and is synthetic. What made purchasing this unit in pretty much a heartbeat easy to do was the fact that this wig was only $35, which after shipping within the US and applying the Black Friday discount code, it equated to £25 all in!! Talk about complete bargain! I then had the unit mailed to me by a friend at a later date.
I purchased Uba in a 1b as I wanted a striking look for this unit. The luster of this unit is very much like human hair and she definitely isn't too shiny or wiggy looking, although the flash from my camera might make her appear that way. In my opinion, she looks sleek and edgy!
There is no crazy tangling or shedding with this unit and I only experienced very slight shedding when I've brushed her with the tangle teezer.
Uba is a VERY long unit, so long in fact that I had trouble photographing her as I clumsily broke my tripod last month. I think she is about 24 inches in length. She does tangle a little but it's not bad at all. That said, I have only worn her once to my Christmas party on Friday. I made sure I took my tangle teezer with me and only had to brush her once the entire evening. I actually fell asleep whilst wearing her (don't tell anyone!) and in the morning she was not in a bad way at all. I just brushed her out whilst she was on my head and she looked as good as new.
Uba is the PERFECT fit for my head she is so snug! From the moment I tried her on she felt very comfortable and pretty much like I wasn't even wearing her, plus point is she also didn't budge an inch whilst I slept with her on my head! I think that alone was more than a test for any wig which Uba passed with flying colours.
This unit was purchased with my own money and has not been provided by any company for review. The views expressed are mine and based on my initial thoughts.
