My daughter was in a production of Hairspray set in 1962. I decided to dress up in 1960s clothes to watch the show.This wig really completed the look & was much easier than back-combing and styling my own hair. Colour on my computer is a tasteful deep auburn. When wig arrived it was actually quite orange. The first night it kept slipping off but on subsequent nights I bought a wig cap and pinned it with about 3 hairgrips . Didn't find it too warm but it was December. One downside is the smell - a really bad damp musty odour that no amount of Febreze or deodorant could mask. For this reason I only gave it 4 stars as it did detract from my enjoyment of the item. I would have returned it but i ordered it quite last minute and they did manage to get it to me for opening night. Bonus: the picture shown on Amazon is also shown on the packet and I used it as a reference to create my 1960's make up look. The wig was packaged in a strong plastic case but had been squashed in transit. It needed a little styling with my fingers to look right. I accesorized with different bows and hair slides and found it quite easy to re-style as needed. The bouffant bit at the back made me about 2 inches taller. I would recommend and we will use the wig again i feel.
