Hair(once I washed it to get the factory processing oil/silicone out): lovely, soft, fine, silky, and flexible. When I washed it, the suds were so brown, that I thought it was going to be much lighter when I finished, but as far as I can tell, the color is the same, so the dirty suds must have been the factory treatment for ease of ventiting or something.
Color: #4 and is a blend of several very very close colored strands. Not a flat color, though, very natural looking.
Cap: I expected a fairly heavy cap, given the description of wefts sewn on a base. However, this is wefts sewn on a mesh and is very lightweight. The mesh is quite fine and darkish brown on the #4, so even when it's on a white styro head, you cannot see between the wefts, so no one will know it's a wig. Fits me like a second skin, I'm delighted with the fit!
Top: This is silk and undetectible from scalp from even close close up. Unlike some wigs I've had, there don't seem to be any returns on the top. They are apparently left below the silk. THAT is a big big deal to me. I hate when I part my hh wig and end up with all these short bristles sticking up at the part line.
Density: Perfect, perfect, perfect, did I mention perfect? I have NEVER had a wig that had a realistic amount of hair; every single one had to be thinned, sometimes drastically. This is perfect, ooops I already said that, didn't I?
Style: This is pre-styled in a layered cut. The front is left long so that it can be cut to fit the shape of your face. I had my stylist cut only the front and back to about the back of my ear. The back was already great, in my opinion.
The hair is ventilated at a diagonal towards the front, apparently to allow the top to lay down flat. This makes it a bit difficult to get it to go back off the face, but it's better now than it was, so I assume over time that it can be trained.
The seams of the silk top are bulky, no other word for it. Across the front it's very noticeable when you run your hand through the hair, but it isn't noticeable at the front edge of the part line, and this isn't made to wear off your face anyway, so pretty much a non-issue.
The seam at the sides of the silk top are bulky as well. I part my hair quite close to that area and I have to ensure that there's some volume there, because it would show if I did not.
It really wants to part in the center instead of on the side, but I think it can be trained.
So, would I buy one again...I already did! The combination of fit, quality, and PHENOMENAL CUSTOMER SERVICE BY ERIC makes a repeat purchase a no-brainer.
If someone can tell me how to upload pictures, I'll post pics.
***Dee sent the pics. to me to upload for everyone to see. If I understood correctly, the first photo is before the cut in, 2nd photo is after the cut in and 3rd was after curl was added:
