Initially concerned when it arrived as it was in a tiny plastic bag and very flat. It also looked very shiny/ greasy and like dolls hair as the strands were squashed together. However, rectified this by putting fingers through the elastic band and giving it quite a few good shakes ( don't go too mad as it may start to come apart). I then hand separated some of the hair strands and stuck it on my bun. Looked really good on, colour match was good for dark brown hair. For this price it is a good party item and it is a lot easier and cheaper than visiting a salon to get hair put up.
Love my new lamp. It looks very expensive and is really stunning. Came well wrapped. Shade can be hung in 2 ways, so with or without the gold piece on top. Looks gorgeous on or off. Think i may have to order another one!
