My dream hair would be long wavy luscious blonde or pink hair... Either would fit my aesthetic perfectly! But maybe they wouldn't suit my everyday lifestyle..
So thats is why I find wigs so useful, convenient and an absolute necessity for those who love to change up their look!
Do you dream about having a different style hair? Long? Curly? Straight? A different colour?
Today I want to talk about my recent wig purchases from 'Dream Holic'!
I have been searching for a perfect wig for sooo many years. And only since about a year or so ago did I finally find a wig of good quality and in a style I adore. My first wig purchase opened a door to a whole new world I was missing out on until now! Wearing wigs has really made a difference in my fashion orientated life!
It was only natural that when I found out about the online Chinese storenvy store: ‘Dreamholic’, and their adorable hime style wigs, that I became curious about them, their quality, colour, fit etc.
Personally, I am extreeemely picky when it comes to purchasing new things.. Like, I will take days to think about something if I am not entirely sure.
When it comes to wigs, I am even more picky because I know that if I am not happy with the wig once it arrives, I will not use it and it will have been a huge waste of money (wigs are not cheap either!).
~So lets start the review!~
All About The Wigs
I ordered 2 wigs:
‘Apple Jelly’ in the colour Sakura Coral (light pink)
‘The Boleyn Girl’ in Linen Whitegold (blonde)
[not to be confused with ‘Linen Gold’, or 'White Linen' another two of their blonde colours!]
I paid approx $45 each for the two wigs, which to me is not too bad as I’ve seen wigs from other brands cost over $100, so I was rather happy to spend this much for a good quality wig.
When they arrived, they were packaged in a plastic bag with their logo on. It had a cardboard border inside to protect the wig.
That was my first thought! I just adore the shade of each!
Heres the style of each:
Apply Jelly is a little shorter than I expected (45cm), but I don’t have any shorter style wigs so I think its ok. It’s quite a natural looking cut.
The blonde one is so long and luscious looking! (75cm) Very old-school Liz Lisa Hime-kaji, or ‘Mori’ style which I love!
There are some specific things I look for in a wig that I was so happy to find that these wigs have!
❀ They must have a fringe/bangs! I don't like being able to see the join between the hairline and the wig as its very hard to make it look natural if you don't use a special glue to stick it down. I mostly like to cover my forehead too.
❀ The wigs have to be full of hair. I brush wigs a lot to keep them perfect looking. It has to be full enough so that if I pull some strands out when brushing it will still look nice, and that it covers the netting and wefts inside the wig completely.
❀ It must have a skin top. I love it when the top of the wig looks like its actually the top of your head. There really is nothing worse than a fake looking wig.
❀ It must be made of a fibre that heat style-able, soft and not shiny and easy to brush without tangling.
The fibre is actually nice and soft as well as quite natural looking without much of a shine. It has maybe 2 or 3 colour shades of fibres in the one wig to make it look more natural rather than one block colour which I like.

Taking a look on the inside, the inside cap is quite stretchy and comfortable to wear. They have the size adjustment pins as well as 3 combs to hold the wig in place which is wonderful!
Wearing The Wig
The Website & Ordering
The website its self is easy to navigate with just one page to scroll through the wigs available and the purchasing procedure is as expected but there is no search option for wigs.
I found the process of choosing a wig quite bothersome.
On the page of each item, the wigs in the pictures are styled and quite artistically shot so it makes it really hard to understand how the wig actually looks when you would try it on for the first time. The pictures do not include all colours of the wig available, and they seem to be edited with a lot of filters.
The colours of the wigs are quite imaginatively named which is lovely, but for choosing and purchasing purposes it really doesn't help with regard to remembering the actual colour.
The item page, or even the website doesn’t include a picture reference of the hair colours, but instead have a picture on their Facebook album. I had to refer back and forth when I was looking at which colour they had available for each wig which was a little inconvenient, but eventually I decided which colour I wanted and searched for the wigs I liked.
Overall the usability of the website was quite inconvenient. A search option to search specific styles, lengths or colours would be a huge improvement!
Communication & Delivery Time
Once I placed my order on the 8th August, I received the order and payment confirmations immediately. I received my next notification on the 15th to say it had been shipped.
They only had one shipping option to Japan which was EMS so the shipping price of $25 was a little more than I wanted to pay but it arrived 4 days later which is not too bad at all so I can’t complain!
Website Usability: ★ ★
Ordering was a bit of a pain, it took me a long time to decipher the colours and find the wigs I wanted in my desired colour.
Shipping: ★ ★ ★ ★
Postage was a little expensive and it took 7 days to process and post it but as it was EMS it was delivered rather fast.
Quality: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I was really pleased with the quality of the wig as a whole, the fibre is heat resistant, soft not so shiny and the wig cap is really comfortable with 3 pins to hold it in place. I especially love the skin top which just made them perfect wigs for me.
Price: ★ ★ ★ ★
I personally think this price is quite reasonable for wigs however some people may find them quite expensive, and there was only once choice of rather expensive shipping.
Overall experience: ★ ★ ★ ★
I’d give my overall experience a 4 * as I am extremely happy with the wigs them selves so it made the ordering process worth it in the end!
Feel free to let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to answer!
P.S. I accidentally bought 2 of each these wigs so let me know if you'd be interested in purchasing either one from me! XD
