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!'
So I ordered some for you guys! Coming to try her on again, and I was confused! I had to play with her for like 5-10 minutes before I was happy (but I am fussy so...).

She is a synthetic unit, so... you might want to use the baby powder/corn powder to mat her out a bit. Getting her fringe/bangs to sit perfectly can take a while, but I guess this would depend on the shape of your face. Overall, she is lovely! Love love love the feathers! Very bouncy and soft unit. Once I master how to get her to sit right in under a minute I would definitely wear her more often... fingers crossed because  I do like her a lot. You decide... 

The unit, I am wearing is in a colour 1. The pictures show me wearing it straight out of the box, no customisation. It is a full cap weave and sits perfectly on my head. I have not worn it long or frequently enough to give an honest review on shedding and tangling... but so far so good. Check out the other videos for more reviews.
