You know what I really love about being a Black woman? Our hair! Whether you wear it natural, locked, short, with long extensions or in braids, many of us take pride in the individuality we can express through our hair.
But in this post, I’m touching on a hot topic floating around the protective style streets: the headband wig!
So, here’s the thing: headband wigs aren’t new. By now, you’ve probably seen one of these bad boys pop up in your social media feed due to the recent resurgence in their popularity over the past year. For those that don’t know me, I’m always on the hunt for new, cute ways to style my hair. So, needless to say, I was super intrigued by the novel idea of the headband wig and excited to give it a try.
There are a ton of places that sell them, but where can you get one you can actually trust?
*Luvme Hair has entered the chat*
Luvme Hair is a leading online retailer that offers affordable, high-quality, luxury wigs. Not only do they come in a variety of lengths, textures and colors; they also have a pretty robust list of happy customers and positive reviews. All of their wigs are made of 100% human hair which means that you can flat iron, curl, dye, wash, and condition your wig (something that’s actually recommended for proper care purposes).
Below I’ll be reviewing their 22-inch deep wave headband wig. But, let's take it from the top!
What came in my Luvme Box
My Luvme wig was beautifully packaged in a vibrant, purple box topped with a bow. It definitely felt like I was receiving a gift. The box also came filled with a ton more than just the wig. I found myself sifting through all sorts of goodies and finding all the essentials one would need to get started.
Wig + storage bag
Silk edge scarf
Different color headbands (five total)
Wig cap (two in a pack)
Elastic wig band
Baby hair comb/brush
Branded rhinestone hair clip
Instruction manual & printed message from the founder
Styling & Securing my Luvme Wig
Installing the headband wig was super-easy and quick (especially for a wig novice like myself)! After slicking down my edges, putting on the wig cap with one of the accompanying headbands, I was basically ready to go!
The nice thing about the Luvme wig is that there four are small combs located around the perimeter of the wig, allowing it to slide comfortably into your hair and giving you an extra secure feeling. But let’s talk about my favorite part: it doesn’t look “wiggy”! Let’s be honest—you’ve seen at least one questionable wig situation going on in your lifetime (lol). So, I must say that I like how natural and snug this wig is. I also really love the curl pattern and texture! I only had to tease it out just a little bit to get the volume and look I wanted. If wavy isn't your thing, they have kinky, curly and straight options as well.
On top of that, it’s incredibly easy to style. You can see below for yourself.
Let me know in the comments below or on IG which style you like the best!
In closing, the Luvme Hair headband wig is perfect for a variety of lifestyles. Maybe you’re someone who works out consistently and needs something low maintenance. Or perhaps you’re like me and would just love to have a cute, easy, go-to look waiting in the wings for those spontaneous nights out...or when you need to hop on a Zoom call (lol). Whatever the need, this wig’s versatility is unmatched!
