Clair Beauty Wigs?

Does anyone here own a wig from Clair Beauty?

I'm not finding the styles I want at Gabalnara, so I thought I'd try some of the shorter/medium-length wigs Clair Beauty offers. I only found one old post about their wigs, and there wasn't a ton of information. I'd be curious to see photos of the wigs using flash or in different lighting, to see how realistic they are.

And if anyone has other wig brand suggestions, throw 'em at me!

Yes, but I found it to be a little vague, and in another thread someone commented that they would NEVER buy Clair Beauty Wigs, so I was hoping for a bit more info. Someone in that post commented that they're "not super, but not really bad either," and I'm curious what about them makes them less, well, super, than...say...Gabalnara.

i have one - this is the only photo i could find of me wearing it, in natural light: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mylaar/6999816930/in/set-72157623765932007/

it's fine for the price. quality-wise, i would put it below gabalnara (neither as thick nor as realistic looking) and above the average cheap taobao/ebay/beauty shop wig (thicker and less tangly than those). it's very "middle-of-the-road."

not the poster but can I ask, what's the netting like on them?

Do you recommend anyone OTHER than Gabalnara? I'm just finding that they don't have the shorter/medium-length styles I want. :\

I have this one, I love it a lot, but in one light setting it looks a bit gross xD but in natural light it looks great
It has average wig-shine with flash, but its really soft and it never gets tangled (maybe cuz its short? xD)
The color as you can see is much darker than the webpage, Ive noticed a lot of theirs are darker IRL just keep that in mind ^^

Haha! The person below you said they tangle badly after a few uses. Probably depends on the length, I suppose...

Thanks. <3

I have this wig: http://www.yesstyle.com/en/clair-beauty-long-full-wig-wavy-coffee-one-size/info.html/pid.1023728700 from them that I've been wearing for some while. I agree with smithsonain that the color tends to go darker than the one depicted on their stock photos. Mine is darker, nearly black. They are not bad, actually, and they DOES look natural. But, the fiber is a little rougher than what I would like, and they tangle badly after a few use (especially if you use them on windy weather) and the frizzing sometimes drives me mad. They can be a bitch to take care of, but as long as you comb them often or right after use and use wig spray it should be fine.

I don't have a photo with flash, but I've use them on a natural light setting here: http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg2/faytchan/P2070191.jpg. Sorry if it is not that good of a photo. I hope it helps ^^

I have three Clair Beauty wigs (bought off ebay for 30-40 each with free shipping). I love them. I have to be honest, I don't know a ton about wigs, but for my purposes (occasional use) I'm absolutely happy with them. I will say that maybe the wigs aren't as thick as they could be (I was wearing one last week and if I put my hand to the back of my head, I could feel the netting beneath the wig fibers) but I like the way they look. I tend to buy darker colored wigs these days.

I have worn this wig several times, it's sort of my go-to for sweet looks and I love it. I would say it came to me exactly in the color represented.

^Same wig, more natural light.

On the right with a different wig. I actually got some compliments on my "hair" from local girls when I posted this on FB.

I just got a third wig in, but unfortunately I don't have any photos that aren't super high contrast (I.E. Santa photographer) but hopefully these are helpful. :D

Which ebay seller did you get it from, if you remember? ebay is just so convenient but I'd rather not buy the wrong type if I could avoid it.

I got my last wig from here: http://myworld.ebay.com/asian.unique/&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2754

It looks like I also purchased one (the brown straight wig) from here: http://myworld.ebay.com/amashop2010/&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2754

Both were reliable for me.

Here's a photo with me wearing one of their wigs (the photo is kind of yellowy, sorry!): http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mdf1pzgVRO1qa13cwo1_1280.jpg
I'm the one on the left, and I got mine off of ebay. :P
I like the wig a lot, but it is pretty long so I have to be careful about it getting tangled! The only thing I do not like about it is that the bangs seem kind of thin so I have to spread them out to cover my forehead haha.
