The thing is, it's just so hard to tell the quality and colour match; Synthetic hair can sometimes look obviously fake and way too shiny, then there is the risk of getting the shade wrong. So I put off getting any for some time till I spotted my friend Serene, from I AM SERENE L blog posted a review on Annabelles wigs, sporting one of their 1/2 wigs HERE - it looked amazing and so natural on her and was just what I was after.
Much to my delight I was asked if I would like to try one of the Half Wigs From them, and give their Half Wig Challenge a go. All I had to do was choose which half wig I wanted from their huge selection of shades and styles, then style the wig in 3 different ways.
The 1/2 wig I chose was the Dark Brown Wavy in Taya, I was offered to be matched up to my natural hair colour by their experts but I knew that this would be the closest. When it arrived I was amazed at how natural the shade was and it wasn't fake looking at all, and the match was exact so I was pretty chuffed.

Here are the 3 ways I styled my half wig for the #HalfWigChallenge.
LOOK 1- Side Parting, over one shoulder
This look was created by adding the half wig to the crown of my head and parting my hair to the side, while resting the hair over one shoulder. This is the easiest look of all 3 and probably my favourite as it looks rather glam I recon.
LOOK 2- Half up half down
This one was done in the same was as Look 1 but I pulled both sides of hair back from my face and pinned it to the back with some hair grips.
LOOK 3 - Low Messy Pony Tail
This look was created the same way as Look 1, but with more of my own hair left out the hair piece so I could section bits over it to cover the join better. This one was a bit more difficult as the hair is so thick so I used a InvisiBobble ( available here ) to tie it all back - these hair ties give a much better grip and hold without damaging the hair.
Then instead of a side parting I brushed it all back and pulled out a few hairs to frame my face and give it more of a messy look.
Over all I'm very impressed with the Annabelles Wigs, they look natural, give lovely length and volume. They also fit very securely to your own hair too - I found that a little extra back combing gives added security too!
As for the price of £31.99 I don't think you can beat it.
Have you tried Annabelles Wigs or any other hair pieces? Which look do you prefer out of the three? I would love to hear your thoughts.
