Wigs: Gorgeous ‘Gala’ by Freetress Equal

Colour: F437

Hey ladies! Okay so tonight I have been itching to share Gooooorgeous Gala (by Freetress Equal) with you. Some of you may have noticed her on the 'My Favourite Units' slideshow on the home page. Well, I have been getting quite a few enquiries about her and so I thought it was time to post about her. Yes she is beautiful..very Beyonce with the colours and 'bigness' (I know that's not a word!!).

Once again, I am not first to review this unit, which I think is a good thing as it has been tried and tested by many beautiful YouTube sisters (see below). Just adding my two pennies worth... representing the UK whoop whoop... lol!

Wigs: Carmen by Model Model - my feathery friend!

Hi guys, today I would like to introduce you to Carmen by Model Model.  

Carmen has been around for ages but I guess I am super late in that I just discovered her a couple of months ago.

Apparently she is an old favourite with my YouTube sisters so I just had to check her out for myself. My verdict: I like her overall but there are a few things that can be a bit annoying. I'll give you my opinion, then check out the videos (below) posted by others, and make up your own mind.

Personally, I love her final look.... but she took work for me to get there. When I first tried her on I must have been lucky because I was like 'ooh gurl this is the one!'

Wigs: Holly by Hairaisers (Secrets collection)

Hi guys, today I would like to introduce you to Holly by Hairaisers (Secrets collection).  

Today was the hottest day of the year so far in the UK, and a unit like this is perfect for this type of hot weather. It is a synthetic unit, and very fine (i.e. not overly full). For those of you who love your 4 bundle weave look (i.e. very very full), this is not the unit for you, but if you want a more realistic density, then I personally would recommend Holly. She looks just like my hair would look if it were relaxed (in terms of density).

Wigs: Vivica A Fox: Silver - V

Hi guys. Today I wanted to share 'Miss Vivica- Silver -V' with you :)  I love this unit. The colour I am wearing in the picture is 1b/30. I love the way the colour 30 warms the hair. I also love the way it somehow manages to frame my face.  

The unit is approximately 18 inches. It is very soft, the waves are very strong (i.e.wont easily fall/lose pattern) yet very soft and bouncy. The cap is also very snug and comfy. I have not customised or done anything additional to this unit. This is how it looks straight out of the package and gently brushed. 

I did not get any tangling when brushing this unit, however I would like to see how it fairs in a couple of weeks.  I shall update!

Wigs: Beshe LW- Mini welcomes you to BlackCleopatra!

Hello and welcome to Black Cleopatra. My name is Anthonia and I am your resident blogger here at BlackCleopatra. This is a young blog with a very big vision. Currently, the main focus of this blog is to promote a wide variety of affordable and attractive synthetic wigs. As the blog grows, I aim to introduce human hair wigs, weaves and other afro hair and beauty products and accessories. For more background to this blog please read the 'About Me' section here.

I would also very much like this blog to serve as a useful source of information and resource for the afro community here in the UK. Therefore if you have a skill, e.g hairstylist, make up artist, designer, personal trainer.... anything related to afro hair and beauty that you would like to advertise or promote, please get in touch.

So, without further ado, (it's taken me long enough to get this blog together), let me introduce you to the first unit that I am promoting.  Say hello to Beshe LW Mini!
