Yesterday, I received Christie Brinkley’s Hair2Wear Full Sweeping Side Fringe. The color of the bangs was a perfect match, but they r going back today!! Problems:
– Hair looped up in stitching on underside
– Clips face opposite directions
– Too short for my forehead
I am looking for long side sweeping bangs so that I don’t have to cut mine. I miss my real bangs but don’t want to cut them. My hair is fuller since growing them out.
Does anyone here wear fake hair? This is new to me.
I HAVE LOTS OF TONI BRATTONS PIECES LOVE THEM .
Kemi, My aunt hooked my sister up with Toni Brattons clip on bangs as my sis has a balding spot due to stress & the faux hair looks fabulous!!!! The color & feel of the hair is fab & clips in really easy so you could keep your long hair and wear a bang when you want. Don’t cut bangs as you might hate it and then it takes forever to grow them back & you have to look like Cousin It for awhile. Good luck in your search 🙂 My sis has the golden blonde ones and they have a nice shine not fake looking at all…
Me w real bangs
U crack me up too lady! Reading your post now was perfect timing after just opening an email… Thx gise. I needed that.
Kemi, be careful of the Secret Extension brand. There was a pretty long thread here started before it was a TS and after people received their orders. The reviews are pretty much all awful. If you read the reviews on the SE site they are also very bad.
Kemiqueen, have you seen the HairDo line of wearable hair that the Q has? I have bought a few pieces from them, mostly chignon-type styles. But they have a lot of different styles. I’ve been very pleased with the ones I got. Color matching was uncanny for my hair.
I did try curly pieces about 20 yrs ago and stopped.
I really did not like all that you have to go though with heat that it adds to your face and neck.
My hair is like a wig anyway very thick and past my the shoulders. I keep it wrapped or in a bun.
Kemi, I think Daisy Fuentes makes bangs and they have it on HSN called Secret Extentions. They are a little cheaper looking than Christie’s but I took the Daisy Fuentes one w/ the rubber band which I cut shorter and attached the rubber band to inside of Christie 12″ clips so the outside goes between my hair and Christie’s. I do prefer the extentions type over a wig which tends to be hot especially in the summer. You mentioned they were too short for you, is that the length of the bangs or where the clips are postioned or were they defective?
For me the circumference is too long for my head and it’s hard to find enough of my side hair to clip onto. I tried lowering the position of the back clip and clipping the sides up higher to the crown which seems to work better. The amount of hair is still skimpy, I think 2 of them are better and I would cut the second one shorter so it would blend better between my shorter hair and the length of the 12″ but can’t afford it right now. In the meantime I know this doesn’t address your bangs problem which I wanted to try but it looked more like a toupe. You will have to get creative maybe play w/ the Daisy bangs w/ Christie’s long hair, other fake hair or try or go the wig way.
Ugh! Wish they made it easier!
Oh Kemiqueen that is a horrible experience. Dang-it, you ordered a new hair piece and it was made with a malfunction…..not cool. I would of sent it back also. Surprised Christie Brinkley’s company would allow this and at that, how did it get pass Quality Assurance???????? I don’t know much about wigs but always wondered about Raquel Welch’s wigs. They look really natural and really pretty. There is a YouTube video on “Raquel Welch Human Hair Bangs/How To Apply Clip In Bang/Fringe. The bangs can be worn to the side or I believe you can cut them to go all the way across. Check it out. Hope I could be assistance to you!
I have quite a few different types of fake hair but have not liked the fake bangs I’m afraid. I have several of Iman’s wigs. While I don’t wear them often, when I do someone always tells me how great I look. Some people don’t like the blonde wigs because of the dark roots but that doesn’t bother me. No one says, “Hey, are you wearing a wig?” I also got brown just for fun. I don’t care if people know I am wearing a wig. I look at is as another accessory. It actually worked great for an outdoor graduation instead of a hat (wasn’t hot at all). I am by no means a wig connoisseur. I’m sure some people find Iman’s wigs lower quality, but I just use them for fun. As for working in pieces with my real hair, I think it is easier to fake in a pony tail or clip in extensions rather than bangs.
I never buy wigs because they never matched my hair color and the price:)
Thank you for sharing:)
I had looked at Iman’s and they look good but are they:)
Peace and love:)
Toni Bratten used to have a couple of configurations of just bangs. They were always sold out when I tried to buy them. I have very long, thick hair and won’t cut bangs so if you find any good quality ones let me know.
I sent her stuff back because it was so fake and shiny and flat…no volume. Like doll hair. I am still searching for a hair piece that is reasonably priced and looks real.
